Oh, it's actually not that complicated: the idea is to recognize that there is, within your brain, a nebulous but wonderful ability to produce random aspects of beauty, contexts, images, colors, scenes, that can touch you deeply, and that this hard-to-corral ability, that flimsy and wonderful thing which only seems to live when you're not looking for it, probably deserves its own imagery and its own name. And it's only fitting that the imagery should come from a random spur of output of that very ability. :)

(Needless to say, I am NOT going to come within a ten mile radius of taking the 'totem' thing in any sort of serious shamanic way. :) It's only meant as an imagery, a label, a metaphore for something which is significant to me yet hard to seize... And I hope this doesn't shock whichever stance on totems you are posting from, dear!)

I hope you did appreciate what my friend took the time to type for you, still. :)

Oh, yes, yes, yes, it was very nice of them!! I intend to reply to them when I've digested the whole insightful comment, and when I have an idea how to say things to this person I don't know without sounding too silly -- but at least I do wish to express my thankfulness, because that was a heck of an informative post they kindly wrote for me. :)
