You know the drill, we’re all aware it by now, so I won’t go in to the details. Basically, if one of my kids goes someplace that’s not here, I’m gonna cry about it. Or, at the very least, have a sad day. That’s the reality of being me.
It’s merely a fact that we’ve all just come to accept. (Embrace!) Not surprisingly, our message from the Universe was a healing representation of this emotional time:
sometimes you just need to cry;
cleanse, and go!
The best way to combat the sadness, for me, is with distraction*. Our daily draw provides this in a wonderfully thought-provoking way.
*Our shared pictures (some Dan’s, some mine) and mileage, below, were part of this distracting approach, too.
“Goddess Of The Shadows ~
What you perceive to be your dark side holds a hidden treasure.
Realise that any perception or belief you have about yourself or others is actually a deception more than it is a perception. What you perceive to be your dark side or shadow self holds a hidden treasure.
As humans, we rarely see the full picture in any situation because we are forever stuck in the illusion of good and bad. You judge your positive and negative qualities and strive to be more of what you perceive to be positive while attempting to disown or neglect those aspects which you consider negative. By holding this belief, you fail to realise that all serves a purpose and that all benefits you in some way.
Everything in our world is made up of positive and negative charges, which together make a whole. You have been guided to choose this card by your soul, because you are ready to move to the next level of conscious awareness. Over the coming months you will find yourself questioning many of your long-held beliefs and you will realise that many of them are simply illusions that only serve to keep you feeling small, inadequate, or restricted.
This card heralds the start of a wondrous and empowering period of your life which brings to the surface many beautiful experiences and opportunities which, in the past, you never though possible.”
Can’t you just FEEL the dynamic motion already happening?! I adore messages like this, because it totally shows us how we are growing and learning. Very uplifting! (And exactly what I needed right now.)

is part of our distraction theme. We went on a LONG, and leisurely ride. In the sunshine (and the wind).
The grand total pedaled was 15.543 miles, in one hour 35 minutes 9 seconds, with an average speed of just 9.7 MPH. Go HERE to see Dan’s map. (No, really, you have to see this route!) We wandered along, conversing, gazing about, and looking at various
ridiculous shit items of great interest.
There were tons of folks on the water. And just plenty of people out there with us, nothing felt crowded though, so that was wonderful.
is a catching-up session from the past few days. Starting with two Floridas, only one of which we photographed.
We now recognize several states the exact second we see them, like New Jersey and New Hampshire (no surprise, really). There were more Colorados than I could keep track of, one Illinois, several Alaskas, and two I could NOT identify (the first was definitely that sneaky bastard who got by me before), plus a single Wisconsin downtown, which was probably a re-run.
