Jennifer writes, "The heart knows what it wants. You just have to listen." and proceeds to share her story about fun salt-and-pepper shakers she picked up on her vacation last year in northern Michigan. She loved them at first sight.
Reading her story, I remembered traveling through Alaska in 2008 with the family unit and coming across Udo, the fisher boy.
I saw this in a store in Juneau. Or was it Ketchikan? I can't recall. What I do recall is I picked it up, put it down and left the store. I did some shopping with the clan and kept thinking about it.
The figurine called to me. I had to have it so I went back and bought it.
Legend (aka the store clerk) has it that Udo brings you luck when you rub his mukluks. I think of our Alaskan adventure whenever I see it. Yes, I have been know to rub the mukluks from time to time.
So, as Jennifer asked her readers, I now ask you, "What is your heart saying? Are you listening?"
