Why the owl logo?
The short answer? Because owls are awesome! The longer answer is that I’ve been fascinated by birds of prey for a long time – an interest sparked years ago by John Karger and his amazing raptor rescue group Last Chance Forever. And while all birds of prey are interesting and beautiful, the owl has long been my favorite. My teenagers would add that I’m a little “owlish” in that I stay up too late and, while I may look slow and fluffy, I can silently sneak up on you!
Owls symbolize wisdom, intuition, and the ability to see what others do not; the presence of an owl is also said to portend change. One of my skills as a coach and in conflict resolution is to offer you wisdom and intuition, to help bring clarity to something that is not readily apparent.
Did you know?
Owls don’t have eyeballs, per se. Rather, their eyes are long tubes that work like powerful binoculars. Because of this, they can’t move their eyes and compensate by moving their head, almost in a complete circle!
A group of owls is called a “Parliament”? In contrast, a group of baboons is called a “Congress”, which says a lot about government affairs these days (no offense to any baboons reading this).
