A form of (re)construction.

             Send me happy thoughts and lots of luck for tomorrow.   The Deputy and I are going to make a test run.  With our bikes.  On the bus.  To the mall.

             After being a non-driver (with the exception of kid emergencies) for over a year now (closer to two), I’ve decided that taking a car as this job returns is just not going to be okay.  Not only do I not want to add more pollution to the planet, but the parking situation pisses me off.

             Since I was last employed out there, they’ve built two restaurants in the lots.  Right where workers were forced to park.  About 700 miles from the nearest entrance.   So, I’ll not be going there via personal auto.  Dan and I have worked out some alternative ideas.  One of them is THIS option.  We’ll let you know how it goes,  and I’ll try to remember the camera.

             Today’s dream that I woke up with/from brought its message in a fractured form.  It presented images in small, disconnected pieces.  Nothing felt cohesive.

             And yet, the over-all positive theme was that of growth and progress:

transformational time.

             We are being directed to see our options.  Like yesterday’s message, we are encouraged to view all with lovingkindness and know that we have choices.  Change is damn difficult, as we’re very well aware, but when we approach it with the attitude that it will bring nothing but greatness, the entire idea is easier to live with.

             Back within our regular rotation, we’ve arrived at a card that I originally misread as “Making Bridges.”  Which doesn’t even mean anything.  Unless  you are a builder who lives near flowing water.

           “Mending Bridges  ~

I heal rifts.  I am the mender.

Card meaning:

Heal old wounds with respect to people and situations.   Carefully do whatever you feel is necessary to make amends.  You are a mender.  Help others mend bridges in their lives.

The Universe wants you to know:

There are times to drop everything and leave; and there are also times to carefully mend bridges with people, situations, and places.  This is one of those healing times.  Maybe there is a wound inside of you that needs to be forgiven or accepted.  

Transform the inner grievance.  Do it now, for you no longer need to carry it with you.  Perhaps there is a person from your past with whom you should reconnect.  You know what you need to do.  Take action now.

Questions to ask yourself:

If there was an area of my life that needed mending, what might it be?  What is the first step that I need to take toward resolving a current rift I have with someone?  Could this card represent something within myself that I need to give attention to or mend?

Affirmation:

I heal rifts.  I am a mender.”

            Excellent validation, “Transform the inner grievance.”   Thanks, Universe.

Today’s Business Update:

is just to say that I put a new photo on the Facebook page, but I’m not in love with it enough to use it here.  I was trying to show what my hair is doing when this picture was taken.  But the background is too dark to really see it, in all of its messy glory.  Yes, those curls just come right out of my head that way.

green shirts, posed photos, naturally curly hair, witches in real life

Forgot this shirt even existed,
but I found it last night in my closet.

             Kinda terrible, but it’s me.  Hopefully we can grab a better shot tomorrow.

  1. That card is very pertinent to the stuff that I am doing right now. I like the concept of being a mender, also “transform the inner grievance.” Cool stuff.

  3. Bike racks on a bus. That is just so freaking cool. Good luck with that! The next town over has a small shuttle service mostly for the elderly. That’s as close to bus service as we get around here now. Which is really kinda depressing. Back in the 70’s we had an actual bus station downtown. You could go anywhere in the area. They even made scheduled out and back runs to the big city. We would walk to the end of our road (1.1 miles) and catch the bus at 7 am. The big city was the closest place that had an orthodontist (We moved back east from CA, talk about major culture shock.). In the afternoon we caught the bus back home. Now we got zip.

    Natural curls? NATURALLY CURLY HAIR!!?? It’s a good thing you’re cute and sweet or those of us with bone straight hair would really hate you! 🙂

    • Why am I now Anonymous? Oh, WAIT!!! DAMN YOU MERCURY!!! 🙂

      I knew who it was,
      that’s why I released you. 😉

  4. It makes sense that transformation comes in bits and pieces – more often it is that way than one big, huge change.

    I think actually bridge maker works better for something I’ve got going on right now. There never was a bridge to begin with in a place that was supposed to have a strong, wide bridge. It may not happen, but it would be good if it does.

    You never look anything other than adorable in any picture I’ve seen of you.

    Ooooo, great point about the difference. And lots of love for whatever it is you’re working on. I have complete faith in you!

    Thank you, silly friend. I would say the same about your photos.
