As I sit here and type tonight my boys are out, continuing the celebration that is Dan. His son bought him tickets to see Billy Idol. I am SO not kidding. (HERE is the local take on it.) They are both super excited about this show. (Be sure you click on the links and read WHY this is happening right here in River City, and where the concert was last night.)
But before we get going onto anything else though, I have to give you the (tragically brief) FLP.
Plus an Indiana plate I spotted with some type of eagle maybe. Neither of these I’d seen before.
On our card altar we have one that I really wish I could view in person. I love the muted palette and the barely visible rainbow shine. This seems to have an almost opal-like quality to it.
“Rutilated Quartz ~
vibrational healing, higher mind, reconciliation
You are subconsciously receiving loving vibrations and loving thoughts from someone connected to your past. An episode or conflict that hurt you emotionally is now being healed and reconciled by the power of forgiveness and unconditional love.
Over the coming days you may find yourself emotionally and mentally reciprocating this love as you reflect on a person or past event.
Through this mutual exchange of love, past wounds are now energetically being healed, and all negative attachments resolved and released.”
My curiosity (and late-on-set ADD) got the better of me, so I went agoogling. THIS place had some wonderful info, both factual as well as mythological:
“Brings forth each person’s strengths, originality, aids sleep, relate to others.
Rutile is said to intensify the metaphysical properties of its host crystal and to enhance one’s understanding of difficult situations. It is also said to enhance creativity and to relieve depression and loneliness.
Rutilated quartz is said to slow down the aging process and is said to be a strong healer.”
Super cool, and I’m glad I found that extra info. As we all know, knowledge is power. (But don’t overlook the last line from the guidebook’s definition, the part about release. Letting Go is still our theme, it seems.) Next time we are pedaling past StarGate, I’m gonna stop in and ask if they have any of these. Sounds like one we could all benefit from.

speaking of higher learning, and education (we were, right?), over at Tranifesto, Matt’s place, (HERE) he made an announcement about some teaching news. It’s very exciting, and really, options like this just give me hope.
This Just In:
No doubt, everyone there feels the same way. (Are we all singing along to White Wedding, Dancing With Myself, and Eyes Without A Face right now?!) Thank you again, J.D. Your gift is beyond wonderful.
