It feels as if I’ve applied to a million jobs over a gazillion warm and sweaty days. During that time, summer faded, and began to disappear. We let go of family members. September showed up. We marked anniversaries. Calendar pages continued to flip over.
Our message today is about that process. We might reflect on where time went, glancing back over our shoulder, appreciating each of the days we had in the company of those we love. It’s our choice, it’s up to us how we view our yesterdays.
Here’s what I heard, and experienced as the information came in:
Much like a lesson of Release, the Universe is reminding us that nothing is holding us back. Everything moves and we always have options.
If our momentum seems delayed, is it due to the need for an attitude adjustment? Or is there some physical action step we are capable of taking but simply haven’t, yet?
Allowing ourselves to feel the flow of time and change and movement, proceeding effortlessly along/flowing with (never against) the River of Life, is a freedom which our culture fears.
Societal constraints keep us shackled to beliefs that are just plain wrong. And, even worse, harmful to our souls.
Let go and Swim, is the divine suggestion now. As we transition to the next part of the year, the next chapter of our lives, and the next portion of our spiritual journey, let’s move as if through water at a healing pace we feel is appropriate, appreciating all that passes by while honouring all that has gone before.
We don’t compare our experiences to another, we claim this adventure for our own.
To keep us inspired, appearing on our card altar is the most perfect messenger.
“Salmon ~ Bradan (pronounced as Bratan) ~
Wisdom, Inspiration, Rejuvenation
The card shows a salmon leaping toward a filbert that is falling from one of the nine trees of wisdom which grow beside the sacred pool. The Ogham sign for Reed – Ngetal – is carved on one of the nuts hanging near the water.
Bradan is revered as extremely sacred in the Druid tradition; it is the Oldest Animal, and it offers us wisdom and inspiration. Often with great difficulty, Salmon will return to the place of its birth to mate.
To find wisdom, we too need to recapitulate our lives, to journey in consciousness back to our beginnings – to our childhood and perhaps beyond to our very origins in God and Goddess.
Bradan brings not only wisdom but youthfulness and inspiration, but remember that to find these things you must maintain an attitude of openness and innocence rather than strong-headed determination.”

is computer related. I’ve had this mouse for years, and replaced the batteries when necessary. A few days ago it began misbehaving. Should I buy a new one because it’s just worn out?
The details are: it’s wireless and made by Logitech, if that matters to you. I turned it on one day, and it was like a dial had been cranked to maximum setting. The “touchiness” of it has been ramped up a thousand times. I can’t just single click any more, everything comes out like I’m dancing my fingers all over the buttons.
It’s annoying as fuck. Suggestions, ideas, recommendations?
