Library owl

What happens when you become the symbol of something that you are not.Is perception more important than reality.Parrots are much smarter than owls but they sit on pirate shoulders.Is it more wise knowing a little about everything or being a master at one thing and which would you seek if you had a problem in the area that the master excelled.Giving animals human characteristics is what folklore is about and great children's tales require it so only time might dislodge the owl as wise but it still has time to go to the library.

Ahab Dreams

Moby Dick invites many interpretations so it's only logical to add my take on this classic tale of Ahab's battle with his epic sized ego.Our minds create the world we inhabit and our monsters reflect our fears and obstacles and our ego determines the size which in Ahab's case was the largest animal on the planet.I say why battle sperm when you can battle sperm whales.
