Singing With The Birds on Flame Shift #38 ...
The birds are singing.
I didn't realize it was getting on towards five am until the birds started singing. Nature's alarm clock, that lot! Heh heh.
I am a little over eight hours into Flame Shift #38, my last up here in The Womb for awhile. I know that one of the next few will actually be in Kildare, which is kind of a mindfuck. I wonder where the other ones will end up being?
Thus far, this Shift has been all about grounding, about connecting, about setting things in order so I can be free to fly. Whether it was cleaning and organizing books and comics, or even watching the last three episodes of season one of Glee (OMG, I loooooove those kids!) I feel like I put some important things to bed.
The rest of the day was no less important or lovely. E and I had a wonderfully connective morning, strengthening our bond at exactly the right time. I went to the salon in the early afternoon and spent time with (and got pampered by) my dear Faith and Ali. So many lovely people I am surrounded by. So many to miss.
The rest of the day was errands errands errands. So much infrastructure, so many tiny moving pieces, to be away from home for so long. I'm still not done. I need shoes. I need to exchange a shirt. My tech / 3G situation is still totally up in the air, but I have a little more time. A little.
Such a nice day with my dear loved ones. Of course, this is precisely the kind of day I will miss the most.
PS - I hope you all had a wonderful Solstice. Huzzah to you, Holly King! It's all you, from today on out! I know we won't see the fruits of your labours for awhile, but on behalf of all Winter loving folk (all 1 of us!) WELCOME BACK!
PPS - The image at the top is from a wonderful Sandman story called The Heart of a Star, which was illustrated by Miguelanxo Prado. It is a tale of sun gods, and of betrayal. A good story to read on such a day.
