a month ago, i was advised to read coelho’s “the alchemist.” when i read now, i slowly savor books, so it was only tonight that i came across this part, which seems really fitting for the happenings of tonight and what i have spent the last several months trying to accomplish: “‘it’s a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your Personal Legend. it prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. it’s your mission on earth... and, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” i’m getting so close. 🌵🦄 📸🗓: 9/12/18
They were everywhere in Rio Fernando park this weekend. Perhaps a last blast – before the cold comes. However, the past week has felt more like July than September. So I’m not sure if the cold is on its way or not. Taos, New Mexico, USA
This morning I awoke to heavy footsteps moving across the flat roof above me. Dark, deliberate steps, they moved from one side of the ceiling to the other, grinding grit underfoot. One, two, three, four, five steps eastward. I walked outside, around the house, seeing, hearing nothing until I returned full circle to the east. The moment I stopped, something bright I could see yet could not see rose up from the rooftop and burst into five ravens that scattered into the sky. They said nothing as they flew upward. Strange since the ravens usually laugh at me, “Can’t fly... Can’t fly” as they casually pass. Their wings made no sound. Wide, lifting wings. Three landed on the hill nearby, while the two circled near above them.
