It’s Saturday in August, vacation time, and there’s a scent of fall, a shift in the light, morning light later, evening dark earlier. I feel the shift inside.
I woke this morning from dreams that were rich, inviting, exciting. In my dreams, I walked across a multitude of bridges rising steeply like the initial climb of a roller coaster. I looked off to the side though there was no railing, and all was blue water and sky and tall sailing ships flowing by.
Even in the dream, it felt like a dream, like Oz. Flowers opened their petaled hands, and then, knowing it was time to go home, I entered a small boat and motored across the sea to wake in my bed with Tiger snuggled close to me.
I lay there, stretched on inner guidance, felt acupuncture from within.
This upcoming Full Moon is the Sturgeon Full Moon in honor of the freshwater fish that filled rivers and lakes in North America before overfishing, pollution, and damage to their habitat destroyed their numbers.
Out hiking with two friends many years ago I saw what I thought was a sturgeon making its way up Redwood Creek. I questioned when I read today that sturgeon are freshwater fish, but then I learn we have White Sturgeon on the Pacific coast and they move between ocean and freshwater but not with the consistency of salmon and steelhead.
I think the sturgeon I saw was the Jonathan Livingston Seagull of the Sturgeon World.
And that brings me to this, a wonderful philosophy for today and everyday.
WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING TODAY DO IT WITH THE CONFIDENCE OF A 4 YEAR OLD IN A BATMAN T-SHIRT.
