Build the dam

Tree.  Dam.

Here I go again with this. BUT.

I do the most of the thinking I do with the hemisphere on the right side of my head. That is the part that is the “believer”…. one who thinks in the abstract…. the creative mind… follower of the magical. Emotional.

So while I do have a common sense approach to a lot of things… there are certain items that I like to dream about or examine.

Take Horoscopes. I know a lot of people think they are bunk. And they very well could be… yet I still like to consider that possibility that the way the planets were lined up… at the exact moment I was born…. MIGHT have some effect on how I react to things in life. You know.  Pull of the planets… flow of the tide… orbits of the universe.

Abracadabra…. if you will.

Now, on the regular old Horoscope dial… I am a Taurus the Bull. Lover of comfort. Defender of home. Hard worker. Loyal. Stubborn.

Uhnnnnnn…… THAT is me.

On the Native American Zodiac… I am a Beaver.

In essence, the beaver tells us to believe in our dreams as if they were real. Build on them as if the dream is your reality. (You know… the analogy comes from them building amazing dams… where it didn’t seem possible.)

Animal symbolism of the beaver also deals with working diligently. They say the Beaver gets the job at hand done with maximum efficiency. (See a tree branch…. and envision a dam.)

It continues….” One might also think twice about engaging the Beaver in a match of wits – as his/her mental acuity is razor sharp. ….. Yes, they are usually right, but the bearer of this Native American animal symbol may need to work on tact. In a nurturing environment the Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful, and loyal. Left to his/her own devices the Beaver can be nervous, cowardly, possessive, arrogant, and over-demanding.”

Uhnnnnnn…… a bunch of this is right too. Except for the part that I am usually right. Sometimes right. Sometimes left. Sometimes…. plain old WRONG.  I am not sure about the razor sharp deal either.  In fact…. I can be a real dullard.

At any rate. Tonight I feel like there has been more happening around me in life…. that is not right. I am not sure what the planets have to say about all of that.

But here is a real and true fact about Beavers.

They have transparent eyelids so they can see underwater with their eyes shut.

That is what I need in life. Transparent eyelids… so that I can see…. even when my eyes MIGHT be shut.

Oh…. to understand that which I do not.
Sometimes… it just feel like a bunch of bull…. to this beaver.



If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.  -Henry David Thoreau
