This song is number four in a series about barn owls, inspired by a world famous San Marcos, CA webcam barn owl named "Molly." Molly and her mate "McGee" produced three clutches of owlets and their antics over time brought together millions of viewers in homes and classrooms around the world. People chatted daily, arranged meetups around the U.S., and participated in various online virtual events, all in the spirit of building community and appreciating the world around. The webcam broadcaster sometimes stole the show with his charm and daily owl box narrations, but Molly, McGee and their owlets were the primary (and priceless) focus of over 20 million people in more than seventy-three countries for many months during 2010 and 2011.

One year, she and her students together learned to recite the first 101 digits of Pi to an original rhythmic tune. It is likely true that anything can be memorized if set to music.
This fourth song about the barn owls Molly and McGee is written from Molly's perspective, reminding all that there is never an end to the cycle of life. Even when an owlet successfully fledges, it may just come around again.
