This Precious Thing In My Clumsy Hands

The online world can be exhaustingly fast-paced. Like BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM! It's my own doing though. I tend to have fifty-million tabs open at a time. If something catches my eye it will get a quick OH!COOL! LIKE! before I flip to the next shiny thing.

But every now and then, I'm stumped. A drawing finds its way into my online-hands and everything else goes hush. It's like being a kid at the beach and finding a tiny shell that feels like treasure in my clumsy hands. There's a million other identical shells along the water, but this particular one is the one that I want to take home and keep in a jar next to my bed... although I can't explain why I chose it. Or did it choose me?

Anyhow. That's what happened when I found this owl drawing by the Orka Collective. I had to pick it up and hold it in my clumsy online-hands for a while.

Owl is Love

Maybe it's sheer nostalgia for Tootsie Pop's wise Mr. Owl, but there's something so endearing and friendly about an illustrated owl. The real bird of prey, with its exorcist-head-swivel action, is admittedly kind of creepy; but for some reason, its drawn incarnations seem utterly playful and downright cordial. The above is courtesy of Kendra K.

Scroll though the extras for some more fun images, including my mom's vintage owl oven mitt, which I've lovingly confiscated.
