Some more quick words on the topic of Christopher Moore, then we move along with the rest of what needs to be covered. He says HERE which books are best read in what order. And yes, along with Marian Keyes, Tom Robbins, and Carl Hiaasen, he is one of my all time favorite authours. (You already know that I’m also a huge fan of Barbara Samuel O’Neal and Sarah Addison Allen.)
Today I spotted these (hope you can see both) as I was heading off on the bike.
This errand was simply to pick up some apples and more salad greens. My girls went to the service and I had to be outside on my own. Ended up having a conversation with someone who went to school with them. He seemed in need of connecting with me. I know that it all went the way it was supposed to go. As I pedaled home it occurred to me (or I was reminded!) that it was Karen who handed me Moore’s first book, many many years ago.
She is missed. Already. And continuously. Missed in a severely debilitating way. There is a huge painful hole where she used to be.
What has gotten me through my day, and through the past two weeks (in addition to the support of my kids and their father), is the knowledge that she’s not actually gone at all. I KNOW this. It’s just enormously difficult to keep processing it, time after time, hour after hour, minute after minute. The more days going by, the less stabby it will feel though. This I also know.
Today’s message from the Universe was, again, massively comforting. And validating.
“The Horse King ~ 42 ~ assistance, control
The Horse King always comes to lend you the power to go the distance, forging ahead whatever the weather. You will most certainly reach your perfect destination with this noble Ally. He lets you know that some person or circumstance brought through synchronicity will certainly appear to help you with your endeavors. You aren’t meant to go this part of the journey alone.
This is also an important time to delegate authority to others so that they may assist you. Currently you are magnetic to powerful people who are in a position to help make your dreams come true. The Horse King asks that you remain open to those who are sent to aid you. You can be assured that you will be lifted up and will ride high in victory.”
This was direct when I flipped it, but now there seems to a need for both definitions to be shared.
The Horse King wants to know why you think you can do everything by yourself. Keeping control of everything around you is counterproductive and exhausting. You may lose an important opportunity if you insist on being stubborn.
The Horse King is patient, however, and will wait for you to come to your senses and accept the help you need. You won’t be able to reach your goal otherwise.
Yet the Horse King says that all it takes is a decision to jump on his back, ask for help, and graciously allow yourself to be carried to your destination. Let go of control and amazing things can happen to you.”

“Using The Bathroom“
(I chose this one because it is not only useful, but funny, and we needed that.)
“I easily release all that my body no longer needs.
Intake, assimilation, and elimination are all in Divine right order.”
