here are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.

Owl Rehab

A few nights ago, my next door neighbor was driving past my house in the dark when an owl struck his mirror. The neighbor stopped to check on the owl, which was still very much alive, and picked it up out of the road to keep it from being crushed. The owl recovered in my neighbor's kitchen from what was probably similar to a concussion. The neighbor let it out an hour later. The owl flew into an apple tree, where it remained for a few minutes, and then flew off, looking healthy. Hopefully, the owl is back on the job controlling rodents.
