white owl and two books

white owl on a lonely road
Earlier in the winter my partner Andrea received a blurry picture through facebook. It was sent to her from a woman named Rachel, one of only two people in a nearby town that actually have the book The Messengers. She said the owl was in the middle of the road and she couldn’t drive around it, and while parked took the picture. The photo shows a white owl standing in the center of a dark road. It lines up with a driveway and a mailbox where the other person with that same book lives.

The owl was looking at something in the road, and she had enough time for one photo from her phone. Then another car passed from behind and the owl flew off.
Text added later the same day:
I bumped into Rachel this afternoon. I told her about this post and she described the a few more things about that night. She ended up getting very close to the owl, closer than the photo shows, and said she felt a deep connection. Also, she was picking up her son from that house, but the owl was in the one spot that blocked her from turning into the driveway 
Rachel also was surprised that the owl was so small. She told me that she only remembers seeing one other owl, and she described it as being three and a half feet to four tall

Interesting. And of course, there's the blaring pop link between owls and mail.

Another, much taller, owl?

Uh oh!
