UPDATE: This three minute ride meant the world to me; two of the foster children we serve and I took to the skies in a surprise, swerving in flight to avoid balloons ascending, with absolute, sheer joy on their faces. It did a world of good for me to do them some good, and I feel like it was a real good spin on the karma wheel. This view is dedicated to them.

UPDATE: If her hair looks unusual to you, it is; Ursula recently received a 'lion's cut' as her double coat becomes easily matted as she sheds her winter coat. And oddly enough, she loves being so punk rock.

I just meditated with a dragonfly, and we both flew away wondering what we were.

Shit, I just kissed a total stranger

CONTEXT: While at the club, my friends Eric and John commissioned me to get 'one phone number' from tonight's homo-exploits. Pshaw, I said, no chance in hell. Within ten minutes of receiving my instructions, I found myself locked in embrace with a Costa Rican. Rather spontaneously and inexplicably. We fell into a conversation and then into something else entirely. Under a spell, I submitted to his lips, though within a few minutes, I asked myself, "what the f$%& is going on? I'm kissing this guy because...?"

Oh, came the reply. It's Beltane. You're supposed to be carnal and all that. Oh. Well that's alright then. At least there's a phone number, as tonight's work did proscribe, and a few moments of tender kiss as a half-moon waxes toward even more light...

Beauty thrives where it is least sought

CONTEXT: When on a walk along the river today, I found this swarm of butterflies busily attending to a pile of horseshit. Of course, it's a bit funny to our general biological prejudices, but it was the most beautiful scene... so many butterflies, swirling through the air and alighting on this one peculiar spot, making use of something we humans cringe at. I stayed and watched in utter astonishment, and had just enough time to fire off a moblog post before they all flew off and the sky was a blaze of yellow. Leaving, of course, a supposedly ordinary and typically rueful pile of horseshit.

Letter Excerpt:

 

Ten Considerations for Being Well n this Goofy Universe

 

0. If you find yourself wonderstruck, dont forget to return the favor.

1. Always be of service to the whole and the Holy. Youll find that the Holy will reciprocate by being of service to your becoming Whole.

2. You will be called upon to use your mind and your vision in ways I cannot possibly glimpse. Never turn down an offer to shine that light so uniquely yours to help others in their darkness, and youll find that when its your turn to be in the night that therell be someone along the way who happens to have a little glow to share .

3. The rewards of being true to yourself  are infinite, even when outwardly your efforts are met with nothing.

4. Youll also see that  knowledge and wisdom will come from within yourself through your own struggle and curiosity... your loved ones may guide you to insight, but yours is the power to choose it.

5. Youll find that some of your choices couldve been better, or at times were downright stupid. Thats okay... I have a closet full of reckless decisions, but without making them I wouldnt have the slightest idea of what a good one might feel like if I tried it on.

6. Your growth will be a mysterious, comic, ecstatic and sometimes scary ride, and I pray that you strive to savor each minute of it, even the most difficult or embarrassing minutes. Dont count on second chances.

7. In those times when everything collapses around you, and whats left wont go right, dont forget your chances of being alive in this solar system, in this galaxy, are a little on the slim side. So slim in fact that it could be called a miracle to breathe this air, drink this water, and have whet ever predicament youre having no matter how you shake, rattle and roll it. So go with the cosmic flow and always choose something over nothing, while remembering that theres a little of each one hidden in both.

8. Respond as best as you can with love to adversity rather than reacting with fear... Love, in any situation and  being the primordial source and essence of ALL THIS STUFF, leaves / enters us with the most possible ways out / in.

9. Whatever youre doing, celebrate the process of doing as much, if not more, than what youve got when youre done. Magic lives in the action.

9 . All matter is energy. All energy is infinite. We are but raindrops falling to the ocean, a short time in this shape until were reunited with the expanse from which we came. Your delicate yet sturdy, resilient body is a temporary shelter of energy that has swam the universe eternally and will continue eternally. You are a sudden crystallization of the infinite. One must ask themself, therefore, why be bored?

9 3/4 . Choosing to live in the moment is courageous but becomes effortless once you begin...feeling obligated to survive in the past or future is dangerous and is difficult to continue. Its one of the few risks Id recommend not taking, right up there with trusting icons and shrugging off coincidences.

10. The Universe itself it not confusing, we humans just like it that way. Do frogs seem bewildered , butterflies befuddled and amoebas addled? Nope, just us, my child. So, whenever things just dont make sense, just take a deep breath and laugh as best you can, because thats what you get for choosing this goofy, unpredictable place called Earth to embody yourself upon.
