For Peggy at Pop Gallery

snowy owl

While walking this morning at Stage Fort Park with Elynn Kroger, we encountered this beautiful snowy owl.  A little later, I ran into Peggy Russell from Pop Gallery, who also had seen him, but hadn’t been able to get a shot of him.  This is for you Peggy.  Merry Christmas.  What a special treat on Christmas morning.

Of course it never fails that I encounter something magical when I carry my chumpy little pocket camera.  I wish I’d brought the nice one Paul Frontiero gave me, as I had originally intended.  Lesson.  Never second-guess your first impulse.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

      Merry Christmas Paul. Yes, they are mystical, magical creatures, and it was a special treat to see a snowy owl on Christmas morning. I posted it for Peggy, but maybe it was Paul wishing you a Merry Christmas and was really meant for you.

      Since that day I’ve been on the lookout for another snowy owl, but have had no luck, so that was a very special Christmas morning encounter. I have to pop into Pop Gallery again one day soon and say hi, since you’re probably easier to catch than a snowy owl!

  6. Nightly news stations from Washington, DC are now reporting the snowy owl sightings ~
