Because I wasn’t sad, raw, and emotional enough, I had to make it worse this weekend. Apparently! Did you know that we have lots of POS vehicles parked up and down our block, in and about town? Well we do.
Care to guess what we don’t need? More cars than we can drive (I don’t drive ANY of them any more!), so we’re trying to sell one/some. To shovel through it and clean it and be bombarded with memories was just fucking excruciating. Why would I think THIS was the perfect time? Really, Jul?! Pile on more pain, sure, sounds peachy.
Maybe it WAS right, and this IS what I need to learn. Have I mentioned lately how gawdammed difficult these lessons are?! Well. They are. Difficult. Damn difficult.
What I woke up hearing, earlier, was crystal clear, as well as connected to yesterday’s statement of ambiguity. I’m going to transcribe the words exactly as I heard them.
“Your message today is about companionship,
because the focus is still on interactions with others.”
Apply that as needed. Fortunately, on our card altar, back within the regular rotation, we have a nicely uplifting, and straightforward definition. Terrific illustration, too.
“We Are The World ~ 10 ~ Rainbows: The Physical
When thousands and thousands of people around the earth are celebrating, singing, dancing, ecstatic, drunk with the divine, there is no possibility of any global suicide. With such festivity, and with such laughter, and with such sanity and health, with such naturalness and spontaneity, how can there be war?
Humanity is depicted here as a rainbow of beings, dancing around the mandala of the earth with their hands joined together in joy and gratitude for the gift of life. This card represents a time of communication, of sharing the riches that each of us brings to the whole.
There is no clinging here, no grasping. It is a circle without fear of feelings of inferiority and superiority.
When we recognize the common source of our humanity, the common origins of our dreams and longings, our hopes and fears, we are able to see that we are all joined together in the great miracle of existence.
When we can combine our tremendous inner wealth to create a treasure of love and wisdom that is available to all, we are linked together in the exquisite pattern of eternal creation.”

was the above remarked upon journey to drop off a car, in hopes of removing it from our lives (and monthly insurance bill), out to Teresa’s house, which is 16.777 miles from The Burrow. We did it in 1 hour 31 minutes 55 seconds, with a nicely zippy average pace of 10.9 MPH (because we had the wind to our back for a lot of it, and there’s not many hills between here and there). Make sure you look at Dan’s map HERE, to get the full effect of this adventure.
