3 July 2018 Molting – The Humble Cicada

Hello and good morning.  Hope this finds you doing well today.  I’m cooling down after deciding to cut what there is of a lawn right now.  It’s really hot and dry and no rain in the forecast for us that I know of.  Hopefully the sweat of my labors helped me earn my place here today.  There is a funny meme I saw recently about sweat.  It’s a picture of a person sweating and the quote says, “My fat is crying.”  My fat needs to cry some more I think!

I had an interesting dream before waking this morning.  It was about people who could alter time.  I remember the song The Reflex (of all songs right?!) was playing during the dream.  There was a sweet little British boy watching the process while I was there.  He asked them, “Do I survive?” I heard a voice say to him, “No.”  Then there was a woman who looked like Glen Close hugging him and saying something about his being able to do it again. 

This dream put an ache in my heart for the little boy whoever he was.  Then fast forward to me finishing cutting the lawn and glancing at the door to our fence.  There was the molting of a Cicada there.  I absolutely love these feisty beings.  I call them my little shaman of the trees with the music they make in summer.

Nature always finds a way to show me, “this isn’t all there is.”  When our journey in these forms is finished, insects like the Cicada remind me that all we do is just transform into something new.  We become so much more than we used to be.  The cycle of life in nature gives that eternal gift to us – all God’s promises are fulfilled.   Like what the woman told the little boy in my dream, he would be able to do it again.

“Look and see”

The Reflex – I didn’t link song as it’s already stuck in my head LOL!

The reflex
The reflex
The reflex
The reflex

You’ve gone too far this time
But I’m dancing on the Valentine
I tell you somebody’s fooling around
With my chances on the danger line

I’ll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day to make my stand, oh woah
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand, oh woah

Why don’t you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time, don’t lose it

Oh, why don’t you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time, don’t lose it

The reflex is an only child, who’s waiting by the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover, isn’t that bizarre?
And every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

I’m on a ride and I want to get off
But they won’t slow down the roundabout
I sold the Renoir and TV set
Don’t wanna be around when this gets out

So, why don’t you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time, don’t lose it

Why don’t you use it?

The reflex is an only child, he’s waiting in the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover, isn’t that bizarre?
And every little thing the reflex does
Leaves an answer with a question mark, play

So, why don’t you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time, don’t lose it

The reflex is an only child who’s waiting by the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover, isn’t that bizarre?
And every little thing the reflex does
Leaves me answered with a question mark

Oh, the reflex, what a game, he’s hiding all the cards
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
