New month, new calendar pages. This week I went around, flipping them all. One a day, as I got to ’em. All of this CHANGE! Gah, we can do this, we totally can.
(I keep telling my transitioning self elf this, and I know that it will become fact. Eventually. Any minute now.)
Here is our Louise Hay view. It’s not my fave. But that’s okay, I have a feeling September is going to fly by, and I won’t spend much time gazing at this one.
The top part says, “I choose to make lessons easy and fun.” Which, ya know, is exactly what we’re striving for here. It continues, encouragingly:
“I am willing to learn.
Each one of us is here to learn lessons. When we learn one, we move on to the next. Love is always hidden inside each lesson.
I am learning about the relationship between by thoughts and my experiences, and I am doing the best I can with the knowledge and understanding I have.
Learning ‘the lesson’ has to do with being willing to change. My higher, spiritual self is changeless and eternal, and so all that really changes is my temporary, human self.
I choose to believe that it is easy to make changes. I can resist, deny, get angry, or build walls, but eventually I will learn the lesson anyway.
It helps to be willing to learn.”
In this case, the words are far better than the illustration (as we’ve found can be the way some of these work out).
Today’s message hit me even before I was fully awake, and its powerful one:
reach out and grab exactly what it is that you most desire.
In my mind’s eye, I saw the brass ring from a carousel, shining and slowly turning, as we rode past. Every time we came around, there was that opportunity, again. We never lose it, we always have a chance.
On our card altar, out of our regular rotation, I was directed back up to this stack. Because obviously, we have a theme developing.
“Angel of Emergence ~
It is time for the real you to emerge.
This card mirrors the start of a wondrous transformation that is about to occur in your life. For far too long now, you have felt second best and remained in the background. It is now time for the real you – the beautiful, talented, and wondrous you – to emerge.
This is the emergence of your true nature which until now you have denied to most of those around you, and often, also denied to yourself. Over the coming days and weeks you will begin to feel a newfound sense of confidence and excitement for your life. Embrace it!
Give thanks, and above all, respect, love, and honour the beautiful and talented person that you are.”
Well, I can’t see how anything I could add at this point would be much better than this. Let’s simply enjoy the good news.

was to return a movie* and a library book, then one other errand (that I’ll tell you about later), for 8.276 miles, in 47 minutes 59 seconds, with an impressive pace of 10.3 MPH considering those fucking winds that just won’t go away (and instead seem to be getting worse).
*Our last remaining video store may be closing. Change is in the air, I know, but I might not be quite to THAT level of embracing it.
After several false starts, and many
bad words mistakes, I did my math for this past month. In August I rode a grand total of 145.778 miles. Which takes our Year To Date numbers over a thousand, so far: 1071.321 (I can no longer imagine where that would land me, had I done it all at once).
So glad they had fun. And, there was fudge. Yeah, I’d call that a successful day.
