Spirit Animal:  the salmon  (creative)                                                                                                         CELTIC:   

With natural intuition the salmon tend to see the world differently (then other people).  Naturally creative and imaginative he/she find inspiration everywhere.   Salmon often withdraws within him/herself for wisdom and insight.

The motivator, the salmon has high energy.  He/she is focused, enthusiastic and creative and needs a purpose or goal.  Although,  salmon is generous and sensual, he/she can also be egotistical and intolerant.

(The Story)

SCENE:

Voltaire

(flashback [narrative])

“Ouch!”

Jack hit his head.  It wasn’t the first time.  He was a tall man.  And, again, he found himself scrunched up like one of those fancy Italian noodles to fix that ancient Espresso Machine, brought to America personally by the Coffee Shop owners’ immigrant grandfather.  He, literally, would not let anyone near it except himself, his wife and his expertly trained barista’s — and, Jack.

His go-to plumber.  And, fix-it man.

It was leaking.  Again!  And, the steam would go every which way.  And, would scorch anyone and anything within its’ proximity.  And the popular Coffee Shop had its’ famous “open mic” tonight.  And, it needed fixing… quick!  And, he… “Jack”… was the man to do it.  To fix it.

” Keep on Plumbin’ ”                                                                                                                         Licensed, Bonded and Insured

That was the name of his business.  The actual Robert Crumb (his favorite American cartoonist and counter-cultural  icon of  Zap Comix) drawing blown up on the side of his battered old white van.  He painted it himself.   Enlarged it.   From an original.

Sketched out quickly on a napkin when he met him.

 

It was luck…

“It’s yours… a gift!”

Mr. Crumb had told him, pushing the napkin across the counter toward the now giddy and ogling younger man.

“Good luck!”                                                                                                                                                             he smiled and gave him a bit of a wave.  Jack was serving him coffee, and getting into a conversation about his dream.  When he was done with his plumbers apprenticeship, he would soon become…

“The best plumber in all of San Francisco!”  And, he believed him.  He then glanced up to the diner clock,  downed his coffee, and then  rushed out to catch his plane at SFO…
