Yesterday I was asked which animal I would choose as my power animal. I blabbered on about being born in a year of Monkey and other silliness along the Chinese calendar just short of starting to babble on about Zodiac signs. Oh dear, was I ever unprepared to answer that question. So to compensate for the half-conscious blabbering let's see what I actually am.
If one would try to analyze me through the beasts that make it onto my desktop screen I would probably be a falcon or an owl. Both fascinate me to no end. Turtles come next. The amount of pictures I downloaded from NGM that involves turtles can be only compared to the amount of pictures of my own daughter on my work desktop. And last on my list is luna moth. This creature seems to be weaved from magic and doesn't belong in this world.
And finally there is Totoro. I am in love with him. I have several desktops with him and they the most joyful, vibrant and magical pictures imaginable.
I guess I am not really much of a monkey :)
