I wish I had a cool birthmark to talk about, but alas! I am the "unbranded"! My brother has a "thunderbird" on his left shoulder. It looks like an old native American image we once saw of this legendary beast. I always thought it was cool. (My other brother had no interesting birthmarks, but every year on December 15th he would get a massive headache. As for me, my only claim to fame is that my eyes changed color. They used to be a pure, deep brown. In my teenage they faded to hazel with a hint of green. Now they're grey with brown only close to the pupil.) My brother with the thunderbird was very drawn to the Apache. More than any of us he identified with our native American blood. He would have dreams of running wild across the desert, sometimes it would be "before it was a desert". He felt somehow linked to the Superstition Mountains. I imagine he had several lives in "his tribe".
