Crow and Bear
What a pair
One with feathers
One with hair

They seem to match
Each other's fare
Cuddling up
In the same lair

I was surprised to find this information on the crow totem - surprised because so many of the items match up with things about me. You know, my late Husband's first name meant Bear. My Sweetie today has the same last name as my husband's first name. It has been a lifelong theme -being as how I first met my current Love when I was only 14, and after life's streams came and went, we met up again and are now always together. Confused? It's okay. Somethings are just meant to be.

Sometimes metaphors are just too real and seems strange.

I'm a firm believer in what is meant to be will be with the laws of nature. And this sums it up! How cool is that. Where did you get this information from? It's soooo interesting.

Just as Tom said, sometimes metaphors are just too real. You are blessed.

You met your current sweetie when you were 14? Wow, that's a very cool story! So the two of you were recently reunited, available for each other? Life works out so nicely sometimes, huh?

anonymous: :D

Anonymousie - my bear had to look too.

Icy, you have more wisdom than anybody else.

Lime - I have what some only dream about in their lifetimes. Why am I so lucky?

Red Mojo - I don't know. I have no answers... but it is amazing and interesting for sure. It makes me happy.

Jillie - I was looking around at totem sites on the internet, and I found this. I tried to find some more info about bear totems, but couldn't. I have no idea why I'm a crow, and got my bear, but that part is true.

Ariel - Some folks get money and fame - some get poverty and love (like Cinderella :) I got my soulmate and he got me.

Dan - yes, it is stunning how this all worked out. He was my very first Love. Our lives, although unknowingly ran somewhat parallel for all those years but never again intersecting until the time was right. It is so right.

SOe: Thanks! And may your Christmas be one you truly celebrate, with your hubby home safely. Gledileg Jol!

Lisa - well, it makes for good reading, yes? Seems to be harmonic with life as I know it.

Say, how's that shoveling coming along? I don't own a snow shovel.

SoCal Sal - um... well, you WOULD see that line... what can I say but that is something to crow about??? :)

Lone Grey Squirrel - Nice to see you again. It is a rather unusual tale, but most assuredly it does warm my own heart :)
