Willie had an ostrich spirit-guide, and now he’s passing that knowledge and gift on to another.
This story is just damn weird. It’s one of those that no matter how many times I read it – I’m going to feel confused. And unsure. And also slightly entertained and amused. It is weird. Funny. And just balls out odd.
Even reading this, I wasn’t 100% sure of exactly what was going on. There was an uncle figure who was Native American. There were strippers. And Vegas. And spirit animals that were ostriches… did I mention that this was weird?
Normally I’m great with the weirdness factor. I thrive on weird (I myself am an oddbod), but this was almost at my threshold… there was something just a little too much about it that wasn’t quite working… something I’ll certainly give another try though.
