In the entertainment business, there is this practice of a “call back” (which is exactly what it sounds like, mentioning something again later, or calling it back).  Clearly I am NOT in show biz, but I am your radio.

             What I receive, I pass along.  So, “call back” is part of what I was made aware of this morning.

             Remember the message of gazing back, learning from our past while looking forward and being present?  That concept has returned.


             We are being reminded.  We are being advised.  We are being asked to mindfully recall and remember.

             While at the same time, lightly peer into the future.  As well as stay present.

             The picture I saw showed a butterfly, gently landing on a small, sturdy, and unmoving stone in a huge, vast (seemingly endless) food- and flower-filled garden.

            As I stood in front of our card altar, I was directed to this draw.  The image and symbolism are tremendously similar!

“Slow and Steady  ~

‘Slow and steady wins the race.’

Remember the old cliché ‘Slow and steady wins the race?’  This is a time for easy movement, unhurried steps, and a steady heart.  

Trust that taking life at a more leisurely pace will give you greater access to your dreams.  Slowing down allows more contact with the juicier elements of your life.

Savor them.”

             Because this one flipped in an ambiguous fashion, we are going to look at both definitions.


Pushing things forward impulsively will not only prevent success, but potentially cause more trouble than you are prepared to handle.

Moving too quickly will only yield unripe fruit with a bitter taste.  Slow down.  Breathe.  Meditate.  You’re not a human doing, you are a human being

Just be.

Everything will work out if you can apply the brakes and become more aware of what’s happening in this moment.  A calm focus on the now, breathing in the beauty of your surroundings, will restore your power to consciously co-create your world.

All fruits ripen in their own time.”

Today’s Sharing:

is THIS PIECE that my Seattle girl recently wrote.  It’s painful and uncomfortable (while phenomenally well written), and it should have been picked up by the fucking AP, so everyone can read it.

             Feel free to hand it out like a printed flyer with enticing coupons attached.

  1. I read the link. It booted out the message from today, which is a good one.

    The only reason my nephew (at age 25) isn’t in the “mountain of debt” category is that he went to SOU for 20% of tuition cost because his Dad works there (in the chemistry lab, not as a professor. His Dad was the first in his family to go to college. His Mom didn’t, nor did his step Mom.) He has no time clock job, instead is publishing on line gamer books…not the path to wealth. Nor has he graduated. He lives with two friends, one of whom is getting her doctorate (who I would love to have meet the Hurricane because her field of study is the sociological impact of electronic media and communications, very roughly stated). I was one of those in the early 80’s that graduated without a mountain of debt, although I was 5 years into my career with LCSO before paying off my student debt, and my degree was directly related to my chosen career path. (In the 4 plus years between graduation and SO employment, I worked in a convenience store, a frozen yogurt shop, delivered pizzas, for a caterer, became a baker, and delivered pizzas again. I did not get ahead in those four years…)

    You’re right; that needs to get out there…
