Weekend Forecast: Quirky



Tomorrow I'll get into my rented car and drive to Virginia Beach where I'll be taking a Jin Shin Do class at the Edgar Cayce Massotherapy School. Does that sound fun? I think it will be.

I'm loving the idea of taking a class at a massage school proudly connected to Mr. Cayce. The school and the hotel where I'm staying are a half block from the beach, too, so I'll get to trade gossip with the moody Atlantic Ocean inbetween classes. I know it's February, and Virginia Beach is hardly the most scenic destination on the east coast, but still it will be great to walk on the beach. It's been awhile since I've seen the big water.

Even more fun is the fact that a psychic convention is taking place this weekend at the hotel where I'm staying. I'm so tickled just to think of it. What happens at a psychic convention anyway? Will there be a keynote speaker? Will they trade skills? Brainstorm about marketing techniques? Will there be workshops? Spirit guides? Most important, will there be a time and place when I can get a psychic reading?

Instead of sitting in my hotel room zoning out in front of the TV after class, I'm going to wander through the lobby, sit at the hotel bar and eavesdrop as much as possible. I myself am a psychic - can't help it, but I am - though it would never occur to me to attend a convention of like minded folks.

I may or may not have internet access so I might be offline for a few days. Online or offline, I'll be taking pics and doing some writing about what I see. Doesn't it sound fun?

Cayce was a super fascinating guy!

The pic is reflected off the side of an SUV. The grey reflection is the back window, the blue is the side of the car. Cool isn't it? It's E. Capitol Street between Lincoln Park and 10th Street, north side of the street.

gorgeous pic.
The thought of a psychics' convention had me laughing out loud. What? they have to convene to communicate? (there's a skit in there, somewhere.)

Hammer said...

Have fun, but bear in mind that if they're really psychic they don't have to walk around wearing nametags, so it might be tough to point some of these people out.

And yet...

I dunno. Call me crazy, but something tells me these folks will stand out in a crowd juuust fine.

Can't imagine a keynote speaker at a psychic convention. More like a hall full of attendees silently nodding in agreement to something...

ah expect you are off at the class - sounds great. hope the weather is good for a road trip! love road trips!

wow, talk about being in center of some great energy...can't wait to hear what you absorb on the mysterious world of psychics!

very auspicious to begin the class and this adventure on the first day of the new year of the rat! expect the ocean will have some special moods.

I can't wait to hear about this weekend! I'm guessing you'll see at least one crystal ball. Or is that a myth?

kimy said...

when you return un petite cadeau awaits at the mouse! but since you've been hanging with psychics, I expect you already know this! eek!

Yeah..no name tags..they KNOW who you are. No lectures..they know what's going to be said, so they can stay in bed and get room service. The hotel should have promoted itself as, "You don't have to tell us...just think it, and we will meet your every need."

Enjoy the shoreline.

Erm, why do psychics need a convention...?
There's a joke in there somewhere, I'm sure!

Really looking forward to seeing your pics and hearing more about the Jin Shin Do class!
