Midwest: I’m still fairly new here, but I’m loving your wisdom. (I’m a Midwest girl myself… ;-)…) And what you said is so true about allowing fish to swim by. I’m very up front about what I’m looking for in my profile as well as what I’m able to provide. I realize that we each have different needs and desires. So I always consider honesty the best policy. I assume there is always someone out there looking for what I have to offer… I just need to be still… Be patient… And wait.
I wanted to let you know that I have just finished reading an article out of Minnisota, USA, about a higher than usual number of owls that are migrating to their area from northern Canada. Apparently there is a low mouse/rodent population right now (it goes in cycles every few years) and with the heavy snow that arrived in late January, February, the owls have having difficulty feeding, so are moving further south and to populated areas with bird feeders. The article said that snowy owls are finding it particularly hard this winter and are moving into areas that they have not been before. This may be why you have seen so many snowy owls lately. So the message may not be for you personally, but be a more general message about the climate change and the stress it puts everyone under, you included.
