We have a small table in the center of our monthly drum circle. The idea is to place objects on the table that makes us think of the drum circle “mascot”, the Whale Spirit. Ironwood carvings of whales have shown up as well as paintings of whales. We have a new totem for our table! The Seaside Ace hardware store had few iron castings of whale flukes. How perfect. We picked one up then went to the beach to find a driftwood base for our new found whale friend. The creation will now take center stage of the table we gather around for the circle. All we need now is a suitable name for our Mascot, the Whale Spirit. But we can leave that for another day.
