Gonna be a bear...

In this life I'm a woman.

In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear.

When you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too.

When you're a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs.

I could definitely deal with that.

If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too.

I could deal with that.

If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Yup...gonna be a bear.

Oh, that's great. I'm having a growl week. Um, I'd have to be something that comes back and flies. I think I'll actually research this........

I'd love to read about how you are keeping chickens in the suburbs. Please inspire me! Shannon

Love it. I think its why so many of us "earth mother" types are drawn to a bear totem animal.
