There's no place like home.

What does it mean when you see a license plate that reads the equivalent of Aunty Em two days in a row?  Nothing I suppose, unless you want to assign meaning to it.  And, I do.

I don't know if it was the same car or not, but they were on opposite sides of town. I didn't see the spelling on the first one - I just had it read to me.

To me, it means that there really is no place like home.  

I think in Cleveland we have some of the most intense skies I've ever seen - complete with dreamy cloud dragons and razor sharp beams of light bursting through clouds.  They are definitely worth paying attention to.  

Me and my camera phone love them.

Oh, I love the second pic - you can actually see LAYERS of clouds! I would have that one enlarged, framed and hung in my home!

If I saw licence plates that read Aunty Em, I would assume the car owner was named Dorothy! Not very original or clever, but there you have it!

The knowing.

You settled into my dream. Stared me from my sleep. And told me it was time for a birth.  I asked if I could stay by your side.  A tender “no” was pushed from your lips. I stood to leave while the others danced around me. Your fear and my rejection walked me out of that dream.
That morning, grief was born. It poured from my body for 7 straight days.
You ghosted my life with coffee, clowns, and diamonds - A knowing that slipped between us. Then a person of your making began to stain my thoughts. He received the words I couldn’t say to you. And we connected over the beauty and pain you left behind.
We both miss your song.

Wild in transition.

I planted a bunch of seeds in my office this winter to try to work through a period of transition that I was experiencing. I bought them lights, watered them, talked to them often, over nurtured them...tried. Now that the sun has been high in the sky and the season is right...they are all growing wildly.

Lesson learned. No matter how much you try, you can't force anything to blossom in the wrong season. Even yourself. You can plant the seeds. You can fill them with intention. But, until the time is right it's mostly about sowing hopes and waiting.

So, now I'll be thinking about the seeds I want to plant in my own life for the next season. What do I want to harvest when the time for growth has come to an end and it's time to store my energy up for the next natural transition?


Press the seed of this story just inside my lips
I will nurture it with warm breath and a low hum
Let it dance from the tip to the cup of this tongue
Then tuck it safe inside my cheek for later
When it's time to swallow it whole
