I always made assumptions on what the wendigo would look like. I was always imagined it would look like a wolf/mole creature but i was different and more interesting.

That pic is based on the mythology. Good pic.

from wikipedia
The Wendigo is part of the traditional belief systems of various Algonquian-speaking tribes in the northern United States and Canada, most notably the Ojibwe and Saulteaux, the Cree, the Naskapi and the Innu people. The Weendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tautly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Weendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody [....] Unclean and suffering from suppurations of the flesh, the Weendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption.
At the same time, Wendigos were embodiments of gluttony, greed, and excess: never satisfied after killing and consuming one person, they were constantly searching for new victims. In some traditions, humans who became overpowered by greed could turn into
Wendigos

Used to read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and one of the stories was the Wendigo. It was well written enough to leave me feeling chilly and unnerved. Knowing there is a mental condition leading to cannibalism related to the Wendigo is even more disturbing.

Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
