Perhaps I’ve found my “spirit animal.” I’m only partly kidding. This is a reference to the animated film “Finding Nemo. So many people told me Dory the fish (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) reminded them of me, that I had to go read the Wikipedia article about it.
I do see a resemblance. She’s distractable, determined and an optimist who repeats “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…” When things get discouraging.
This photo is a clown fish. Nemo is a clown fish, but Dory is a Blue Tang. I took the photo at Charlie Kang’s Korean Restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan tonight.
