Whether it's answering questions about themselves, me or life in general, coming up with short stories on topics I pick because or just commenting on random things that pop into our (collective) heads, I look to others to entertain me, because I'm bored/lazy/squirrel-brained?whatever.
I'm now going to attempt the same thing here. Yes, this does require audience participation, so if you are not inclined to be silly because I want you to, go ahead, click one of the links on my 'Friends' page & experience some of the awesomeness that is the people I love.

***********Thirty-nine second pause for my train to get back on track****************
Fun fact: in my house we often run on "Hawaiian Time" or "Football Time" as the Stork knows it. This is when you have an exaggerated sense of time in either direction. For example, I said I was taking a Thirty-nine second break, when in actuality I was gone for more than an hour, because phone calls & adulty things happened.
Anyway, here's my thing. Remember, participation is mandatory at this point, because you did not click somewhere else & run away. Not regrets kids, this is all strictly for fun. (Certainly not for the Feline Underling's evil world domination statistical purposes.)
Now because of my previous derailment & subsequent forgetting of how to brain, I have decided to start with a thinky type question. Just don't think so hard you hurt yourself, I refuse to take responsibility for your injuries simply because I'll be tending to my own.
You know how some in some cultures they have symbols/totems/spirit guides? Things that have some significant meaning to individuals or groups, that shape their behaviors, guide them through challenging situations, guard them in times of need, etc. For example, Hawaiians have ʻaumākua.
My question to you is this: Do you have something, whether it be an object, shape, animal, symbol, color, etc that guides you or has a recurring role in your life? If so, what is it & why do you think this has such significance in your life?
For instance, in my life the one overwhelming recurring theme/symbol that follows/haunts/guides me is the heart. Not necessarily the actual organ, but more the shape & what it represents. You see I've been noticing more & more lately that when I'm especially conflicted/stressed/turbulent/whatever, I tend to draw or be drawn to the heart shape. I think is because that shape generally symbolizes love. I've always been blessed enough to have been surrounded by love. I was raised with love, have made friends through love, was taught to act with & share my love. Love has always comforted me, supported me & guided me in every aspect of my life. And following my heart has never been difficult for me, just ask cawfee.
So, now it's your turn to go think about it. You can share in the comments here or on Facebook (preferably on my Stuffed with Aloha page). Don't worry about what others might think of your answer either, this is about you & me getting to know each other. Because I was bored.
