Wow, well, the party was actually fun. The hosts are newlyweds from India, and the new bride was dressed in an elegant Indian gown. I of course, was wearing my Stewie Darth Vader sleep pants and a Tractor supply T-shirt, size 3x. My husband was wearing shorts. It didn’t seem to matter, however, as they were genuinely glad to see us. It turned out that I didn’t have to ask any questions about their countries, as conversation flowed with no problems. Mostly they wanted to know how the animals were. Of course I whipped out my Iphone with it’s plethora of photos and we were in business.
The new bride was shocked to learn that she and her husband had been…’set up’, at one of our BBQ’s. They had both been steered to check out our attic, then everyone was advised to stay out of the attic. It was hilarious. Both of them worked under my husband so typically, relationships are discouraged. There was a lot of giggling that night, and obviously their machinations were successful, wala, the happy couple. The fun of the night was when the guys went outside to smoke the Hookah. I, of course, wanted to see it in action so I went out with them. It was a beautiful piece and somehow they talked me into trying it. It was very similar to smoking from a Native American peace pipe. Tobacco with additions. The addition to this tobacco was flavor, mint flavor. Difficulties getting the Hookah to go created much laughter.
We decided not to bring in the box of my fiber goodies, since it seems they are having BBQ withdrawal. So, they agreed to model the goodies at the BBQ. My husband usually goes to bed at 9pm every night so let’s just say he was up late. We arrived home at 12:30 am. I was wired and didn’t go to bed till 3am. When I went outside to play ball with Blue and do my Walton style goodnight call, there was a huge spider web on the porch. While at the party during the Hookah scene, I saw a spider web on face book. It was so large I passed the phone around. My spider web was nearly as big, but I wasn’t able to get a decent photo. That inspired me to take a few web photos in my house, which then inspired me to show you some things in the room I spend most of my time in, the living room, where my chair is.
Today I was reminded of the Hopi prophecy. Warriors of the Rainbow. The warriors of the rainbow are here now. Here on planet earth. It is you and me, and all who strive for a better world. A kinder world. A greener world. I drive a car and use gasoline, but I know that this is against the green. And against the grain. The oil in the earth, to me, is like the blood in a human body. It is the life-giving liquid that keeps our bodies, our shells, alive and here on this planet. If the oil is like the blood, then what damage have we done? And that’s just one issue. For those of you who have not yet read my book, The Wiggles of Crystal Cave, it is about this very subject.
Back to the rainbow. I alluded to this once, but here is the story. I had just received my first Reiki attunement and was alone in a hotel room. I had no beer to get me to sleep, so I asked Spirit to help me out. I was immediately taken on a mind journey. I was with someone, in space. I didn’t see this person, but I was with him. We were walking through the stars when we came upon a forest. A beautiful forest as far as the eye could see. Then these rainbows appeared and began to dance. As they danced, they turned themselves into geometrical shapes. So, the circle rainbow danced next to the square, etc. When the triangle appeared, the spirit with me picked it up. He turned it sideways and then threw it, like one would a boomerang. It sliced through the forest, cutting down all the trees. As I hollered out, “no!”, the voice said….There is power in the rainbow. I went swiftly to sleep.
Since that time, I now live in a place where rainbows appear often, and I have been to several Rainbow Gatherings. The rainbow is very prevalent in my life. The time is now, for the rainbow to form. Pick your sides folks. Keep destroying the earth and the people upon it or change it, with thoughts, words and deeds. We are the rainbow we seek.
It felt a little like a rainbow at the party last night. People from all over the world, come together. Gosh I love my life. And now it’s time to go visit with my little tiny rainbow. The whites; the reds; the greys; the blacks; the browns; the creams, and the silvers of which I have aplenty. My beautiful tiny goat rainbow. Well, maybe not so tiny, 50 goats is not really tiny. 🙂
We have two themes today, the spider and the rainbow. It started last night with the spider in my bag. Then the huge web at the party then the web on the porch which led to the Native items with webs, which led to the Hopi prophecy, which led to the rainbow. The spider is about weaving threads. Creation. The rainbow IS creation at it’s finest. The rainbow holds all colors, all woven together, which brings us back to weaving and the spider.
