Sunday Seven #304

Not even a hurricane will stop me from posting the Sunday Seven. But then again, there’s a good reason for that: I’ve actually been in Tampa for a few days, visiting close friends I don’t get to see as often as I’d like.

I knew that the storm was going to essentially miss Charleston specifically because I was out of town at the time landfall was to have occurred; if I had been there, we’d have no doubt been in the middle of serious hurricane madness.

This week’s question involves Native American totem poles and the belief that each individual is connected with nine different animals that will accompany each person through life, acting as guides. The belief also is that different such guides come in and out of our lives depending on the direction we are headed and the tasks that need to be completed along the journey.

Whether you believe in such notions are not, it still may be fun to use the idea for a Sunday Seven question.

Scroll down on for a list of animals and the qualities associated with them. So based on that list, could you come up with seven of your nine totem animals?

That’s the challenge for this week! As always, thanks for stopping by!

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION:

Name seven animals you think would belong on your own totem pole.

This is definitely different... let's see...

1. The Snail: Aware and Solitary

2. Rooster: Early riser, nothing but the best

3. Squirrel: Planner & Gatherer

4. Fish: Slyness, open-minded, quick to change one's mind

5. Mouse: Scrutiny, order, organising, eye for details

6. Cat: Detachment and sensuality
