After taking a look at this blog a long-time friend of mine mentioned that the helmet picture in the page header reminded him of a fish like the Haida drawings of salmon. Well I’ll be danged. These look very close; even the colors sorta match.
I know little about the meaning of images like this but I did find this page on animal symbology. Persistence, dependability and renewal are attributes of the salmon, considered a provider of life in the Pacific Northwest.
I think the resemblance is cool, especially considering the photographic angle on that helmet picture. No, I don’t think this must mean I’m like the salmon in those admirable ways. My helmet though, that’s another story.
