You know, when I looked down at my pajama pants (pictured here with the anchors) I saw the image of the Starbucks Siren. As if the symbolism of the siren weren’t loaded enough, now I see its connection to the anchor as a symbol (based on this specific visual depiction of the mythical creature).
Legend says that Sirens lured unsuspecting sailors into the deeply, darkly unfathomable depths of the ocean by using beauty and music and other feminine charms as weapons. The ocean in this instance represents the secret desires and fantasies that live in the shadows of the unconscious mind. I guess the anchor shape that the Starbucks Siren takes on is meant to keep you forever submerged… in COFFEE!
