Present Card

Glided in front of my car on the way home at midnight tonight.
It was a barred owl I think, difficult to see clearly in the dim light, but it flew low and quiet across the road.

I have been having a hard time.
I find myself frustrated and furious with Georgia when she has been acting out and yelling"I hate you!" grinding her teeth together.
I was so tired from my eclipse vigil last night, so overwhelmed by birthdays and solstice and coming Christmas that I cried in my frustration on the way to work.

I have been dealing with some old anger from my childhood that I realized recently I had never expressed.

Not quite sure what to do with it.

I was feeling some despair today; lonely, couldn't get a hold of Rob at work to say hi.

On my way home at midnight my intuition told me, for the first time, ever to go a different way home, by way of School St and there was an owl!
An owl for me.

It glided in front of the car.

It felt like a gift.

The pure empty peace of the woods around me suddenly became present.
The quiet dark.
A wild animal on big wings.

All spoke sweet comfort to me.

Thank you owl.
I felt, As Teresa of Avila said, 'All is well, and all shall be well, and all shall always be well.'
