We’re running out of teeth!

Last night, one of my girls put out a newly fallen tooth for collection by our favorite tooth fairy, Agnes.

th

Agnes, along with her cohorts in the tooth-collection biz, Bianca, Consuela, Francesca and The Haz-Mat Fairy, has been steadily retrieving my twins’ teeth for several years now. (Except for that one incident when a government agent tried to horn in on the tooth-collection industry, but we don’t talk about that.)

Agnes, in her note to my daughter, remarked a bit sadly that soon there won’t be any teeth for her to collect, but she assured Z that they would always remain friends.

My girls are going to be 9 in July.  I count us as being very, very fortunate that the twins still believe in magical beings like tooth fairies, the Easter Bunny, Santa Clause, etc.  While it’d sure be nice to keep things going for much longer, I’m well aware that we are on borrowed time, belief-wise.  All too soon, one of their classmates will make a concentrated effort to burst the bubble of sweet innocence that my children have enjoyed, and introduce them to the cold, hard light of cynicism and disbelief.

In the meantime, though, my girls will continue to blithely enjoy the brief peeks into a world that is not outside the realm of extreme possibility, where anything can happen and where friendship truly IS magic!

‘Welcome to the New Normal. You’re It’ – from the blog: Golden Age of Gaia

A beautiful post I read today and wanted to share with you:

What is “normal” anyways? The dictionary defines “normal” as “conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.” Conforming to a standard. Well, previously we followed the herd, went with the pack, watched the fashion, trend, style, etc. Now that’s been shown not to work.  We’re fast breaking the mould and we can’t hide it any …

Goodbye to All That – Golden Age of Gaia

I wanted to share this beautiful post* I found on another blog, with my readers:

I just popped into bliss again. In the midst of having an imaginary conversation with my imaginary partners at the equally-imaginary Michaelangelo Fund, I suddenly became aware that I was in bliss. Hello, my love. Welcome. Please, stay awhile. [I later remembered that I had just read Archangel Gabrielle’s channeling (1) where she suggested we …

Rainbows and Sunshine and Dragons, Oh My! :D

It’s been a bit on the gloomy side here lately since Christmas (we were totally ripped off from getting to see the only full moon on Christmas for the next 19 years – thanks to the heavy-duty air pollution we frequently get around here!).

So after a break in the rain we’ve been practically floating in for the past two days, I go outside and see a RAINBOW!!! Woo-Hoo!!  So I whipped out my trusty phone, (noticed that the time was 12:33p when I turned it on to take these) and knocked out a few pics:

Ooo, aaah! Pretty, huh?

Then I noticed this bull…

After about a minute, I noticed that the bull had morphed into a dragon!

(kinda looks like the rainbow is either defining the side of its wings, or trying to lop off its tail :D)

Then I grabbed my laundry and headed off.

So that was yesterday.  Afterwards, I grabbed my handy, dandy “Pocket Guide o Spirit Animals” by Dr. Steven Farmer and looked up what bulls and dragons meant (Looking up spirit animals is sorta, kinda like the Chinese Zodiac you see on placemats in restaurants, but a bit more in-depth.  Instead of one static animal you’re associated with by way of birth year, all kinds of animals can pop up in dreams, nature, symbols, etc):

Among the highlights:

BULL – “…allow yourself to indulge in any creative projects you’ve been considering.  Your life is headed for an upturn cycle, so welcome it and enjoy it.  This is a very prosperous time for you…”

DRAGON – “Do more of the kinds of activities that bring passion into your life…You’re entering into a period of considerable prosperity.  Spend some time regularly in meditation…and you’ll receive some valuable insights and inspiration…”

This is pretty interesting, considering that I recently have been mulling over trying to slog my way through several more years of college to get a 4-year degree (after the 21 years it’s taken me to get my 2-year!) Or seeing what kind of minimum-wage receptionist job I can get, or instead, focusing more on my writing (sci-fi/fantasy) and art (right now I’m into crystal, metal & resin sculptures aka “orgonite”)  My husband is very supportive of being a patron for my art and thinks I should do that, but I was waffling between being “practical” and some mis-placed guilt over doing something I love that didn’t fit conventional definitions of being “productive” and wanting to do what I love.  I couldn’t choose and was feeling very, very clogged up (pretty much like a backed up toilet – I had way too much garbage getting in the way of the flow :D)

The way things are going lately, it seems the universe is steering me down the ‘road less traveled’ and it’s shaping up to be one heckuva ride!

Awesome! 😀
