You are almost there

Yesterday, between snow showers, rain storms, and apparently earthquakes here in Minnesota, we had a spot of sunshine.  Having an opportunity to play a bit outside, I visited the town I used to live in, and a garden I used to play in, for some playing in the dirt.

So, I raked a bit, hauled a bit, and visited a bit with some old friends, all in all a wonderful and refreshing morning.  I said good day to plants that I have known for years as they emerged from the sun warmed soil, listened to birds, and the sounds of old voices.

Me, I am a great believer in signs, and I ask for them consistently, hoping, always hoping, for a bit more insight into my journey here.  I am not sure the path I am on, but figure I will be there eventually. So back to my perpetual questions; I always ask, being a not patient woman…WHEN?  when will I understand, when will I be there?  And I had been asking that same question while I worked in the garden.

I looked down to see a slip of white paper fluttering in the breeze.  Picking it up I read, on a Fortune Cookie slip…You are almost there… Hmm, now what do I ask?

Mara the Magical Gypsy

Once upon a time in a small Hamlet, there came to live a magical gypsy woman, my friend Mara.  She brought light and joy and adventure into my life.

I met Mara when she moved into the same small town I used to live in.  Actually she, with her partner, Rob purchased the old harness shop building that contained my upstairs apartment.  She evicted me…nicely. Well, if I were continuing this as a fable, I would say she freed me from my tower.   And we have been friends ever since.

She has many talents.  She writes, produces events, creates web sites, journals for herself and others, and is the mosaic mistress, the guru of gluing, the creator of craft, the original and only true tile gypsy.  Her work is truly art, so much so that she was asked to create a how -to book of mosaics.  Which she did wonderfully.  Making Mosaics with Found Objects

Mara makes magic, she picks up a small bit of china and in that bit sees an entire work of art.  While I was still living near her, she enticed me to go out in the evening streets of our small town, and fill in the cracks.  We filled cracks, corners, and walls, sidewalks with delightful whimsy of china bits, and pieces, little knick- knacks, pennies, anything that caught our magpie eyes; treasures brightening the town, and healing some old pains.  We have been told, by some, that if their spot did not have a Mara mosaic they felt left out.

I think Mara arrives at her small hamlet to heal some parts of it.  This town has a long history of pain, hushed secrets, all hidden in those cracks and crevices, and down the skinny, sometimes clutter filled alleys between the buildings.  Mara shines light where she goes, and opens eyes,  allows thoughts expressed.  Her conversations start others conversing, thinking.  She positively shakes up the status quo.   Her laugh and love embraces the town.

I love to visit Mara’s building.  225 Water Street.  I have watched it change from a rather sad, rickety building haunted by old standards and old hurt, to a lovely warm environment.

Mara gardens; she has created a wonderful land of flowers and growth in her own alley, full of laughter, bees, and happiness.  She has healed her alley.

Her small hamlet will never be the same, and that is perfect.

Another short note on reading palms

Last Sat the 29th, I had the terrific honor of spending the day at 225 Water Street in Jordan Minnesota, reading palms like crazy.  Oh I had so much fun, met so many fantastic women!  So!!!  I will most certainly be back.  I am excited to tell you that I will be going back to 225 Water Street  on February the 19th for yet even more outrageous fun!  If you do want a reading please let me know, or contact Mara directly @ 225waterstreet.com!  See you then!

More on reading palms

I love reading palms.

When I take someones hands I first say a small prayer to myself, to ask for guidance and the ability to revel the information the person I am reading for most needs.  I love the connection that I feel to the person whose hands I am holding, and the warmth that comes to my hands from theirs.

Reading palms is pretty basic, we all have four major lines on our palms, Life, Heart, Head and Destiny, and these lines can give me an immediate insight into what has been happening in a person’s life.  Then,  taken in accordance with the myriad of other lines on a palm, the shape of fingers and palm, and even the color of the palm, I can gain so much information to share.  Often times I gain an intuitive flash, a glimpse of even a little more, a little more depth and knowledge.

I love the responses I receive when I speak with the wonderful people I read for, the appreciation of the knowledge I have for them, and sometimes just the validation my words have.

I love reading palms.
