Wow. My posts are pretty far apart now. I’m just not sure what direction I want to take with this. The books I’ve been reading have been stressing daily unobstructed/uncensored journaling, and I was pretty much using wordpress as my journal before. I know now I can’t do that. There are things that I have to get out that I don’t want anyone else to see. So, now I have to figure out what this is for. I guess I might take out tidbits from my *wacky* daily journal. I may move toward the on-line Patch newspaper, too. Not sure. . .
Getting more animal signs. . .
1) The Finch — The finch — we’re not completely sure it was a finch, but Brian thought it was — flew up to our door and just hung out there, talking a bit to who knows who. (There is a rectangular window above our door, and that’s where he was changing out. ) According to Whats-Your-Sign.com, the finch can symbolize any of these ideas: joy, simplicity, variety, diversity, appreciation, happiness, high energy, honoring resources, healthful diet, and enjoying the journey. Wow! The finch is perfect!
Here’s the little guy we heard and saw!
2) The Crow — I saw a group of them hanging out on the roof of the elementary school where I’ve worked. Supposedly this is a power symbol. I was a bit concerned seeing them at first, because I thought maybe I was about to die or something. Or maybe they symbolized the end? That would be appropriate. But, actually, they symbolize change and adaptability. That’s EXACTLY what I need right now. Thank you, crows!
3) The Mouse — The teachers had their end-of-the-year celebration at a bar in downtown Naperville, and I stopped by for a bit after my rehearsal. Afterwards, as I walked back to the parking garage with some friends, a mouse zigzagged across our path. I don’t see mice too often, and I wouldn’t have expected to see one in Napeville! So, naturally, I figured it could be another sign. Here is what What’s-Your-Sign.com says a mouse symbolizes: resourcefulness, modesty, groundedness, adaptability, temerity (shyness), innocence, fertility, super-awareness, voraciousness, determination, conservation, and cleanliness. Excellent. Today is all about cleanliness (cleaning out the house and going through my classroom stuff), and I like the super-awareness, voraciousness, determination, and that “adaptability” again!
I’ve been getting a lot of positive messages everywhere from everyone and everything, and it really means a lot to me. Everything is going to be ok. Life is great!
