Why did I call this site Bluejay Short Stories and not Owl or Eagle Short Stories? Why wasn’t it something else? The simple answer; Bluejays are iconic. They denote contentedness and spiritual joy and their clear blue color represents truth, wisdom and trust. All these are virtues which I would like to get across when new people find my site. I find that these simple virtues have their own way of promoting the stories and poems which I write about.
