Hello to you. It’s still snowing as I write to you. I don’t know how much we are supposed to get but it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. If I wasn’t an adult I wouldn’t care. The neighbor kids have their snowsuites on and are having so much fun! I was thinking of how fun it is to make snow angels and then two of them did it! At some point I’m going to have to go unbury my car. Adulting sucks sometimes!
Yesterday I decided to look up an old crush from senior high school and I wasn’t prepared for what I found. He had made a successful career as a manager at Barnes and Noble and as an entertainer. He had been cross dressing and his characters name was Roxy Marquis. He got married to the man he loved. What I wasn’t prepared for was that he got lymphoma and fought the cancer for 4 years. He died in 2020 from it and he was my age- we were a year apart! All the memories I had of him filled my head last night and it was hard to sleep. I had such a crush on him when we were in school! I was too smitten with him to pick up that he was different…that he was gay. He was so beautiful to me. Finding this out evoked a lot of emotions. Why did he have to go through what he did? I felt so scared and sad last night just thinking how hard he fought to live. I hope in his heaven he has peace. RIP Wesley Byers – https://m.startribune.com/obituaries/detail/0000358638/
This morning I found out a friend, Tanya Knight, from my tribe in Alvarado, succumbed to cancer too! She was the most gentle and beautiful woman you could ever meet. Just so vibrant and full of life – she was a healer. I can’t believe she’s gone.
Last night as I was tossing, turning and crying I talked to God. “God I don’t understand suffering and death! It scares me. I feel so powerless – where are you God? Sometimes it just feels like you’ve abandoned us and I don’t want to believe that. Don’t let me waste this gift you have given me…..this life.”
Both Wes and Tanya still have their Facebook pages up. I’m glad they were so I could pay my respects. I didn’t know Facebook did that.
I hope something here resonated. I need to pull myself together and live this day. I think that’s the best way we can honor those who have gone before us – live!
Hello to you out there and I hope this finds you in a good place in your life. If not, if for some reason this finds you in the shadow place of living, I hope that you will find a light space or a light space will find you. That’s how it worked out for me with my recent journey. It’s amazing how a bunch of shut doors can open a bunch of new ones and even reconnect you with people you had lost touch with.
There is a phrase divine timing that comes to mind with what happened with my Uncle Bill and I this morning. My Aunt Ruth has sent him my blog to read and no sooner had he finished reading it, I fumbled with my new phone and “accidentally” called him! The karma/divine timing was not lost on either of us with that one! My Aunt and Uncle have watched my journey with mental health and how I have managed to climb back up after some deep dives. They were both pleased to read my post and I appreciate their encouragement.
It’s amazing how many people you find out love and care for you once you get plugged back in to things. I always find myself humbled and nearly unworthy of so much love and support! Today I got to hear from and see some folks I had been missing and find out how strong our connections are.
Facebook has turned out to actually be useful to with this latest leg of my journey and it’s been a tool to reconnect with positive people in my life. I had kind of shunned using it but am finding it not to be such a bad thing.
The big deal today was Link coming home to see me! I missed him, Spot and my husband so much when I was away! I drew pictures of them in my journals almost everyday! We are testing the waters to see how things go for the next couple of weeks. The hardest part of being gone was the back yard really went and grew tall with no one to maintain it. I’m looking into getting a lawn service to tame it so it’s more Link “going out to do business friendly!”

Here is what divine timing looks like in Gematria:
“divine timing” in the English Ordinal system equals 135 – a creed or to bear fruit
“one three five” in the English Ordinal system equals 132 – a life
“one three two” in the English Ordinal system equals 148 – a tree
“one four eight” in the English Ordinal system equals 143 – a choice
“one four three” in the English Ordinal system equals 150 – a Joy
“one five zero” in the English Ordinal system equals 140 – a food
“one four zero” in the English Ordinal system equals 158 – a feeling
one five eight” in the English Ordinal system equals 125 – a one
“one two five” in the English Ordinal system equals 134 – a chance
Remember, this is just my interpretation. Gematria reading is very personal and may be different from person to person. I find it interesting that it is in a 9 cycle. When you add up 1 +3 +5 you get 9 and if you divide 9 by 2 (the night and day of existence and light and shadow of self), you get a repeating 9 pattern. There is a certain element of “nein” (in German “no”) or denial about divine timing and things that happen with it! People like to call it just a coincidence but is it always? I don’t think so.
“coincidence” in the English Ordinal system equals 84 – lesson, worth
