Not sure how many more of these* getting-home-after 11 o’clock nights there will be. I feel bad when the post is tardy. But then I think, “maybe I’m the only one worrying about it” so I let the stress go and replace it with gratitude for my chubby little legs that got me home safely.
*Why, yes. I do make the schedules and totally could go look. But that won’t actually tell me what days I’ll end up getting home this late.
Yesterday’s message came back to me as I was getting up today. (Nice how that works out.)
Not knowing (why) is part of our journey.
There are people, places, and activities that we’ve charted for ourselves. Either as a learning experience (challenge!) or as a respite from all the damn lessons.
Be it a surprise vacation or a song sent by a friend. Doesn’t make any difference how it arrives, or even sometimes who it came from, just that our soul was gladdened and uplifted by the enriching incident or adventure.
On our card altar, here is a double draw that continues along with this same theme.
“Completion ~ XXI ~ Major Arcana
Whatever has been absorbing your time and energy is now coming to an end. In completing it, you will be clearing the space for something new to begin. Use this interval to celebrate both – the end of the old and the coming of the new.
Moment To Moment ~ 2 ~ Rainbows: The Physical
This card challenges us to move away from our preoccupations with other spaces and other times, and stay alert to what is happening in the here and now. Life is a great ocean in which you can play if you drop all your judgments, your preferences, and the attachments to the details of your long-term plans.
Be available to what comes your way, as it comes. And don’t worry if you stumble or fall; just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, have a good laugh, and carry on.”
I like these two together, and combined with our channeled message, we get a nice reassurance that what we’re doing now is right on track. We’re being reminded to be mindfully aware of where we are, but also to have faith that where we’re going is the very best, too.
And, that it’s all falling in to place as it should be. Or, at least as we mapped it out to learn the most.

is slightly less than the last ride, but by a negligible amount, it’s still only 4.317 miles, in a pathetically slow average pace of 7.9 MPH (being 29 degrees outside is killing my numbers), in 32 minutes and 36 seconds pedaling time.
Yesterday I learned:
- mall bathrooms are locked promptly at closing time
- a flat tire will sneak up on you
- the last bus out of the mall isn’t really the LAST last bus
