You know you live in California when you go to a gathering where a man channels spirits – which is what I did yesterday. If you put the hocus pocus aside, I did take some things from that experience. Most importantly, I was reminded how important it is to be the silly, interested, outgoing and ridiculous person I am.

I am clearly not taking myself too seriously here. Why should I now?

I love a good spirit animal reference. I’m sure there’s something very legitimate to the whole concept but I don’t know enough about it to take it very seriously.  This is a fun online quiz to determine what your spirit animal is.  Today I got equal parts wolf and swan; the descriptions sound about right.

Wolf: “Family comes first” could be a Wolf’s motto. You form deep connections with close friends and family members, and they know you’d do anything to protect them. You’re loyal, devoted, and passionate. Your worst fear is being alone, but be careful not to drown your loved ones in too much emotion.

Swan: Swans are idealistic, open-minded, and passionate. Your good nature often leads people to think they can take advantage of you, but they should be careful—beneath that serenity lies a fighting spirit. Your love is fierce and unconditional, fueled by the certainty that it should last forever.
