I’m going to be writing this post in two parts. Now, before we leave for the second event of Dad’s birthday extravaganza, and later, when we get back. The most exciting news of the day? MY COMPUTER HAS RETURNED! Whew. I am much relieved. Thank you both again, my sisters-in-California.
At this exact second, as I pre-write, my Hurricane is packing and getting ready to go back north. My most difficult time is now. Shortly I’ll leave for an appointment, and won’t be here for her departure. Much better this way (or when I just sleep through it). The up-side? She’ll be back in August. So, there’s that.
On our card altar this afternoon we have one from the category of
Whale, Dolphin, Crab, Ray, Seal, Octopus, Crocodile, and Frog.
These creatures make the waters their primary home, drawing strength from this primeval element and flourishing thanks to its bounty.
The greatest of these, Whale, lives on plankton, the tiniest of organisms, while the most ancient, Crocodile, seeks flesh and blood. They counsel that you too may be nourished in myriad ways – that the seemingly insignificant can be the seed of the mightiest creation, as can be the most obvious and celebrated.”
Travel across earth and over sea to securely embrace your dream.
Octopus does not wait for fate to deliver her dinner of Crab, employing whatever strategy is necessary for his capture, even abandoning water for earth’s air.
She counsels that you, too, follow your dream. If your partner has left for a faraway land, join them; if a new exciting possibility calls from distant climes, embrace it as firmly as Octopus does Crab.
If others obstruct you, like Octopus, eclipse your actions in an inky cloud until your dream is securely within your grasp.”
Nice, that’s a very cool one. (Unless you’re Crab.) I’m always a fan of when the Universe tells us we can go after our dreams!
Second half, I’m back. No pictures, I left my camera in the back of the car (in a bag, long story, don’t ask). There was a Foreign Plate we saw on our way there though, which I grabbed with my phone.
(Also, dinner was delightful. We went here. They gave dad his birthday treat [baklava!] for free. Very nice folks and super good food.)
Well, isn’t that awfully dark. Okay, it’s also Illinois. Here, I’ll make it up to you, the desserts from last night.
There’s also a German Chocolate cake plus an almond poppy seed choice. Tomorrow we return to our regular schedule. Hopefully.
Max is on top of a shirt I ordered from a guy raising money for a really good cause. I’ll take a better picture of it and tell you more as soon as I can.
