I found myself suddenly sluggish recently. I could have blamed my tiredness on hormonal shifts, the weather, energetic turbulence on Mother Earth or an unexpected flirtation with a sore throat thing. Or it could have been the stars at play.
I had forgotten that particular today was a Cross-Quarter day, the mid-way point between Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox. The monthly Celestial Timings I receive suggested this was a good day to listen and meditate, to be open and receptive to messages from beyond.
I had read this earlier in the week and knew I needed to set aside time to listen yet I forgot. That morning I fussed with myself and analyzed why I was so tired.
Finally after lunch I pushed myself upstairs to take a shower. As I did I noticed Mystery and Bogeysattvah curled up in the front windows. That’s when for the first time in twenty years, I curled up on the living room sofa. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve lain on this sofa many times but never suddenly like this or at the end of the sofa on which I found myself that day.
As I did the first thing that caught my eye was this tree. I’m quite familiar with this tree. It is the hackberry on which there is a face on the drive-way side and a screech owl house that is in reality a squirrel abode on the opposite side.
I thought I was familiar with this tree but this unexpected angle revealed its many branched beauty.
