Tom and I spent some time this week on Harker’s Island, NC. As a 16 year-old from Havelock, NC, when I got my driver’s license, Harker’s Island was as far as I was allowed to drive, alone. So, I went there a lot. I learned about driving across bridges there. I learned to masterfully (if I do say so myself😜) pick blue crab there. And I was introduced to multitudes of pelicans there.
It was such a treat to introduce Tom this part of Down East, that was so much a part of who I was and who I became.
And I wasn’t surprised that my long-time ‘spirit/totem animal‘ made its presence loud and clear to me as it has, all my life.
Pelicans always help me pause.
What animals help you pause?
