He's going to help me be smart through the three programs I'm studying. One is a Masters, one is a Certificate with two classes left for completion, one is web programming which I just signed up for.
He reminds me of Orion, the neighborhood owl, which is always a plus.
How is he supposed to help me be smart, you might ask? The owl is a symbol across several cultures representing protection, intelligence, learning, foresight, and sacred knowledge. In ancient Greece they associated the owl with Goddess Athena, who was the Goddess of Learning and Wisdom.
He was designed by Judith Jack, my favorite jewelry designer. He's enameled, silver, and features marcasite stones throughout. He's adorable and about 1" tall.
