Evening - Morning!

It is 1:30 AM and I am wide awake.  I went to Larkspur today to get my hair cut.  Steve usually cuts my hair and I usually avoid Larkspur as my mother lived there, and I find it sad to re-visit the memories, but today, I wanted to be there, today, The Day of the Dead, the day the veil is thin.

I parked in Corte Madera and walked to Larkspur along pumpkin-filled streets.  Halloween was obviously beautifully celebrated there last night.  It was easy walking unlike where I live.  An older woman walked ahead of me on the bike path and when I caught up with her, she stopped to chat.  I was reminded of my mother.  I ate lunch at the Ward Street Cafe, a charming place, and received a wonderful haircut from Simone.  She had just returned from two weeks in Mendocino and was happy to just cut my hair while I sat there with my eyes closed, feeling tired. 

When I got in the car, there was a flash, like a shooting star, but in the car.  Who knows what it was, but I choose to believe my mother checked in to say hello.  

I am going into the city tomorrow.   My friend Terry and I are taking a shamanic journeying workshop and decided we didn't want to be driving, so we will be tourists and walk about the city and have a full day workshop on Saturday and again on Sunday.

These feel like special times to me.  I feel Tony close.   I feel that when someone I know dies, they hold the portal open for me a bit, and it is the time of year, when the veil between the living and the dead is considered to be thin.

I don't know why I am awake tonight, but I am.  I am awake in peace, comfort, calm and the shared arms, roots, branches, and legs of love.

I give thanks for living cared for and blessed.
