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!

  • Here I am:

    We were clobbered here by Hurricane Irene, who really pulled out all the stops for us. My parents live in Wayne, a large portion of that under water (not them, though). We were out all weekend evacuating homes once the Rockaway River crested and again, when the decision was made to bleed off the excess water from the Jersey City Water Works (which is here in Parsippany), adding more water to the already saturated water table. We lucked out and have no water and kept our electricity. I have some interesting pictures once I download them.

    There is Tropical Storm Katia brewing in the southeastern waters of the Atlantic with a primarily west-northwest heading. There is a chance (hopefully small) that she may take the same track as Irene. I certainly hope not – most of the town is stretched very thin and there are still parts of Parsippany where residents are in hotels or stuck in their apartments until the flood waters reside, which may take a long time. We’ll just have to hope for the best.
