I am only able to check in here briefly.  Our part of the world (and perhaps yours, too) is currently encased in ice. We lost power at the beginning of this weather pattern, earlier in the week, but it has now been restored.

             I am beyond thankful for that small fact.  (As well as, the tree which fell on our house, was our own tree, and it didn’t poke any holes in the roof.  This time, unlike the last incident.)  Our message is clearly about gratitude.

             Take a moment, look around.  Recognize your gifts and blessing.  Help where you can, others may not be so lucky.

             I was directed to this validation on our card altar.  We are being reminded of all that we have, and all that we CAN have.

gratitude, dreams


Travel across earth and over sea to securely embrace your dream.

Octopus does not wait for fate to deliver her dinner of Crab, employing whatever strategy is necessary for his capture, even abandoning water for earth’s air.

She counsels that you, too, follow your dream.  If your partner has left for a faraway land, join them; if a new exciting possibility calls from distant climes, embrace it as firmly as Octopus does Crab.

If others obstruct you, like Octopus eclipse your actions in an inky cloud until your dream is securely within your grasp.”

  1. Our casualty was the large oak tree that fell across our yard, and did minor damage to two neighbor’s fences, and a city oak that fell and stripped all the branches off of our sequoia. Power fine, house fine, vehicles fine. Can’t ask for more.
