Whenever tragedy has crossed my path someone has always been there with the power to help. Few of these creatures had any money to spend or held position of influence. They had something more than money or position seems to have these days. They had a great power -- the power to help -- and they often did help and without complaint.

I've often wondered about that strange power - the power to help - how it begins, how it holds on and how it can become greater even when in the worst of times.

Throughout the years of having observed first hand the power to help, I've come to understand a little about that power, as well as a little about a variety of other powers possessed by man and also a few powers possessed by the creatures of the wild. It seems when some lose the power to help the same power springs up somewhere else.

Is that what happens? Does the power to help really spring up? Is the power to help a hidden and forgotten power or one reserved only to a few, or is it a power held deep within everyone and everything waiting it's own time? Is the power to help a power easily lost or destroyed? If the power to help is lost, is it also lost to future generations forever and ever? What about the creatures of the wild? Do the creatures of the wild have the power to help?

I don't know much about the powers of the wild creatures in our forests, but beyond here and beyond there I've noted powers beyond the usual and normal abilities of human beings.

This story is about a Christmas Owl, one who actually possessed the power to help a young reindeer-like creature known in some forests as a glower. I've never personally met a glower but I did manage a short visit to a forest where the Christmas Owl lives. It is in that forest, and from the Christmas Owl himself, where I learned about the glowers and heard this strange story about how the Christmas Owl helped a young glower called Glorianna.

I have to tell you that it was a very difficult journey to that forest, where the Christmas Owl lives, a journey so difficult I could only achieve that journey the same way others have ...

in their dreams.
