a wolf and a moose

why wolf? as a child in swiss boarding school M – always the smallest – earned the nickname ‘petit loup,’ which means ‘little wolf’ in english. wolf – curious, peristent, a social creature that mates for life. i have a wolf, the love of my life … my universe.

why moose? for my 37th birthday, i requested from M only the simple gift of a stuffed animal from build-a-bear. a moose is what i received. the moose accompanied me on my very lonely sojourn in this urban wilderness. i clung to him @ night, and during many lonely times. as though moose somehow had captured part of M’s spirit to carry with me.

and that is the story of a wolf and a moose – the loves of my life.

[following is something i posted in my myspace blog, the first weekend after M’s arrival in vancouver.]

we stood in cathedral park, enjoying each other’s company (after 11 weeks apart) and also sharing a joint. we looked on, as we saw the reason the cathedral bells rang so jubilantly at 10 am on an ordinary saturday morning. a bride and her entourage poured out of the church. of course, the bride looked like a princess, in her white dress. and it occurred to me. how truly blessed am i. i did not have a princess-like wedding dress. or a princess-like wedding. that’s because i did not need any of that. i am not just princess for a day – ie my wedding day. i am adored. i am a princess every day.
