Well, we almost moved to Germany. Something was floated in front of Duty and it’s been one of his dearest wishes to go to Germany so I told him if it came to pass, I would move.
This is huge for me.
I cannot tell you how huge because of my top 100 places to visit (much less move to), Germany does not make the cut. At all. But why not, you know? We both admit we are a rut and don’t do anything about it and this felt like an interesting choice. I don’t know that it will come to pass but the important thing is that we decided to move if the right thing shows up. And that’s all the Universe needs to know to shuffle things around.
In other news:
∞ It’s back to Utah for me in September to sleep in a tall bed, eat the best turkey sammiches and soak wayyyy down in a big ass tub. Oh! and to hang with other entrepreneurs and my wonderful coach, Angella. I had such a super time there last May and then shook my whole world up that it will be interesting to see what happens now.
∞ I think I’ll write a post on Practically Intuitive about why I think Dick Cheney is a Divine Being. Really. I do think that. I believe there are some souls who come for the express purpose of teaching us something in a way that really effects change on a whole different level. Cheney, by seeming to be (to me and most of the sentient world) evil personified has allowed us to see just how craven our nation has become.
He is responsible (along with a host of others) for where we are today and I cannot shake the feeling that this is part of his soul’s path. I’ll never know for sure because I don’t go traipsing through people’s Akashic Records without their express permission but it’s a hunch I have. (So much of my intuitive ‘knowing’ is things I cannot prove or quantify. I just know in my heart of hearts they are true and I don’t see to justify them to others. I used to try but there’s no point.)
∞ Speaking of hellishness, boy, things are just a mess out there in the world. I don’t watch television news and am very picky about where I get my facts but I do try to read different sides of an issue. The shooting in Ferguson, the beheading of that man by ISIS, whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East …. a time of enormous unrest. It feels to me like something is brewing under the surface. It’s going to break wide open soon enough, if we’re not there already.
(I wanted you all to know that I am aware of what goes on in the world at large and that I’m not just consumed with my own stuff. You’d never know that reading this here blog, though, would ya?)
The other one in this saga that fascinates me in Secretary Kerry. He warned the entire world in 2004 that our involvement in Iraq was a huge mistake, that we should have concentrated solely on Afghanistan and then use the other resources to secure our own borders, especially the southern one. (We don’t have the manpower to check the cargo coming in through the Gulf of Mexico either … I know this because I was a Kerry 2004 campaign worker and read those position papers before I stuffed them into the envelopes.) Now here it is 2014 and what’s on his plate? Iraq and our porous borders! It’s almost as if destiny means for him to be the one to clean this up, one way or another.
Germany! Wow. That’s not just getting out of your rut, that’s being catapulted out of it!
