Met a little friend on the trail yesterday and it took me a moment to figure out what he was gnawing on. Actually I saw a few, popping out here and there, strangely comfortable right next me instead of scurrying away. I love to watch these little critters and this one got himself a mushroom for supper. That was a first for me and I never knew that they eat mushrooms.
The blog title came to be because I name the animals I come in contact with. I know, I know, pretty soon I will start talking to myself…oh wait, I already do that. They often bare silly names that we laugh about and what can I say “I guess I’m easily amused and find fun in the most basic ways and circumstances.” Holding on tightly with his sharp, little claws, there was no doubt that he reminded me of Wolverine. I sat for a moment and envisioned this little superpower furry critter fight you with all it’s might for mushroom rights. And the last name, well I’m not sure, perhaps it came from encountering some fellow Germans on the trail (even though Fitzgerald is not a German name) or because of U2 releasing a new song yesterday. It will sound great live and I’ll see you next year. So perhaps a good old, traditional, American last name fell to the wayside this time.
As I’m sitting here, writing this post before work, my resident squirrel “Dirty Jake” is collecting his breakfast, filled with nuts a d veggies on the porch right next to me. “Good morning and beautiful day to you my little friend.” I have to smile at myself how much peace floods through me, watching such simple little acts. It seems like they are becoming more and more priceless, and one day all the little things will add up and become the big things of our lives.
The unusual behavior yesterday came across as yet another sign, as if my little friend “Wolverine Fitzgerald” was trying to tell and teach me something. Here is the spiritual meaning of chipmunk…
Something good is on the way to you and something delightful and wonderful will touch your heart and make you smile and laugh. Chipmunk is very benevolent and grants the deepest desires of the heart by making wishes come true. Chipmunk is a totem of abundance, friendship and preparation. It is said that there will be an important conversation that is coming your way, pay attention to the details. Chipmunk has secret tunnels for a quick getaway, symbolic of illusion and the power of magic. Chipmunk also loves a good adventure and is constantly noticing new changes to the environment. He will quickly tell all those close to him and who care to listen of his findings and the tiny pepples that have moved.
The only thing I can say to this is “Germany, I know you will have important things to tell me and I’m preparing for the journey. I know you bare secrets, not yet visible and hidden in secret tunnels, I will leave it up to you to show me the magic and reveal what you think is necessary in the next step.
