Wolverine Fitzgerald

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. 



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO
