my nickname has been BEAR since I was a small child. mostly because I climbed things, ran my head into walls and made grunting sounds before I spoke. also I had and still have an affinity for honey, with the comb preferably.
as I grew, I found a deeper connection to the animal totem. the deeper ways one may identify with animals are personal and won’t make much sense without knowing me. research your own. the less deep ways are fun.
I would sleep through the winter if I could, the low sky sun gives me headaches, makes me want to sleep the afternoon away. L love food and I will eat most things. my birthday is close to the time the bear wakes from hibernation. I tell most people it is just a nickname.
