All Signs Point to ... Something
What do you think this arrangement of feathers means? I doubt seriously that anyone arranged them; they were just like this on the pavement right in front of the house on Tennessee Avenue. Probably they are the detritus of some early spring bird fight, at least that's what they represent on the most superficial level.
What I'm asking is, what are they showing me about my life? You see, I believe the whole world is an on-going, three dimensional, full fledged divination, pointing out to me - and you, too - everything we need to know. If only I was better at interpretation, I would never make a false step.
(pause while I laugh at myself)
Equally as potent as feather arrangements, cloud shapes, weather patterns and other divinatory signs and sigils are our national monuments, standing like huge runes or tarot cards, available at all times as shapes worth contemplating.
I feel lately that I am being pointed very specifically in the direction of happiness and connection by way of new doors, windows, and interaction with people I knew long ago. By changing my memories of my past I believe I am altering my future as well. If that's a delusion, well, OK. At least it's a happy delusion, right? Oh yeah.
