"Nada te turbe, nada te espante"

Nada te turbe, nada te espante, todo se pasa...

Santa Teresa de Avila

Some years ago I bought a small image of Saint Teresa of Avila. One of the attributes was an owl on her shoulder. The owl was the symbol of wisdom in the Greek mythology. Or the idea of God coming from the shadows. Or the hidden knowledge.
At that time, many things were not easy for women. I read this poem. I made two owls.
I was named after her.
