Turkey at library

I've missed a few of my walks, so it was probably inevitable. I'll be walking the river tomorrow, but what with car things, weather things, schedule conflicts, I haven't seen my spirit turkey for a week, maybe two. So the turkey wandered over to the library.

Rumors of four turkeys on the fringes of the parking lot had been circulating. Then the children's librarian cried out "There's a turkey at the back door!" 

Well naturally. I know that turkey.

Everyone ran to the back door. I went to the windows in the break room instead. That's on the other end of the building. I needed to be alone. That's how it works. Sure enough the turkey headed there. It danced in the parking lot traffic. It gave me one soulful look in the eye.

"Don't be so mad at everything." My turkey seemed to say before heading out into a trafficky avenue.

"I'll see you tomorrow." I whispered.


  1. A dream voice is telling me that the Shaman of the Internet might be a novice of paganism and so I am compelled to interject here:
    Please DO NOT follow your spirit animal out into traffic!

    1. Are you sure? The turkey is avoiding cars with alacrity and seems to be beckoning.

      No, I don't think it's paganism. Traditionally I have called it Polypantheatheism, but I'm pretty sure I am in the process of writing a brand new religious text of my own here. It's gonna be BIG.

    2. Excellent. I'm working on our Chinese.manufacturers.

  2. Yeah. The turkey. Thank you.

    1. I pretty much felt the same way!

      You're welcome, though.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
