A little less excitement please

I have a cabinet full of snowglobes most of them about 15-20 years old. Most of the time I forget it’s there and I haven’t bought a new one in years. I ran out of room and then I lost my job but I still love them. Some of them are music boxes.

Last night Alison and I were reading in the living room when one of them started to play out of the blue. Only about 4 or 5 notes and it stopped. Both of us got the shivers. Alison made me go over to the cabinet and play them all to try and figure out which one it was. We couldn’t figure it out but it may have been a blown glass unicorn one that plays “Silent Night”. Someone gave me that one and it may have been my brother, Cam, a few years before he died for Christmas.

All I know is that kind of weirdness is usually someone we know trying to communicate with us. I just have no idea what or who it was this time. It’s the time of year for guests so time for us to get crank calls from the other side. Hallows gets weird around here.

Today’s reading


King of Stones

The prehistoric horse, common in Europe until about 10,000 BC was depicted frequently in paleolithic cave art.

The Uffington white horse chalk figure once held a long barrow in its mouth, representing the breath of life and pro-tection of the dead. The 30,000-year-old carving of an unshod hoof is thought to represent both the vulva (the beginning of new life) and the primal footprint that shows the trackway through the forest.

Choosing this card signifies a positive change in one’s life. A horse is a psychopomp – an animal that carries one between the worlds, bringing new life, the joy of the reborn sun. Perhaps there has been a fallowness, or an unhappiness in your life that will now begin to thaw.

A person who is reliable, wise, practical, able to help others with problems; both serious and playful, magical and grounded. They have their feet on the ground and their head in the stars.
