Vessel is my spirit animal. I've actually met him before -- read about it here!

My absolute favorite thing to do in the whole world is feed chipmunks. The excitement is innocent and palpable as you gently offer them a snack, and the world seems to precariously wobble as you anticipate their response. Will they timidly accept your offer, or scatter into the mountain brush? It's &&&&ing adorable either way.

A memory I shall cherish for the rest of my life is when, several years back, I finally succeeded in feeding a chipmunk from my hand. As his tiny claws gripped the graham cracker I was offering him, I could literally feel every vibration in his body. Every twitch, every breath, every nibble of that lovely cracker -- we were perfectly in tune with each other, and in that moment we established a brief but eternal bond between two living beings. It was beautiful.

And who knows? Perhaps after death, that very same chipmunk remembered our bond and returned to me through the sun as a spirit, vowing to guide and protect me before allowing himself to pass on. Or maybe not. Either way, I wish I could restore that sense of innocent purity I once held as a child...
