Today was very strange…as most are these days? The one thing I notice above all else is that people were going the wrong way today. If you know me than you know how I want to be the parking lot police…people behave badly in parking lots and it’s not right, and nobody stops them. In the Sam’s Club parking lot everyone was going the wrong way??? I can see the arrows….they aren’t invisible…they have a purpose…and yet everyone was ignoring them. There is a shopping plaza that has a one way cut through that goes behind Best Buy…did I mention the one way part? Not one….but two vehicles came out of this alley going the wrong way…WTF?
Why shouldn’t I drop the F bomb today? I said it more times Thursday than I do in a month. It was a crazy day! Back to the wrong way theme….someone did this on the interstate and died this morning. Why is everyone going the wrong way? I have never wanted to get home as quickly as possibly like I did today.
Today was a day of washing curtains, moving art around as well as other things. Last weekend I was washing baseboards….I must be Spring cleaning? I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the Girl going to her dad’s on the weekends while he is in training at his new job, but I kind of like it. Sure I have to do my running around solo but…I get home faster and the house appears to be in order longer than usual. I know it’s because I am actually home to appreciate it…and I do appreciate it….
The last week or so has been filled with more symbolism than usual. I pulled out of my driveway Friday and headed down the road….to be led by a crow who flew above the front of my car for a half mile or so….Then I came across the bright pink light. It was bright and very strange. I pulled over to try and capture it but it was fading fast. All I did was pull into a pothole filled parking lot to turn around and stop and it was already fading. By the time I made it to the railroad tracks 45 seconds later…it was gone.
Some people referred to it as a rainbow but that’s not what it was? It was a large section of bright pink and damn….I need to start carrying my camera again! On the way home that same day I passed a big beautiful Barred Owl hanging out on a telephone wire….did I mention the beautiful part?
In the last week and a half….I have had deer in my back yard, drove by a Barred owl, had deer run out in front of my car, seen more crows than normal, saw various hawks, today I saw a big wood pecker. I have dreamed of baby vultures, three snow leopards and the color yellow, which turns up in the owl section of animal speak. Let’s not forget the weasel I thought I saw last week? Somebody who is always at the eagle’s nest taking photos saw what I saw only he called it a mink…again…I didn’t know we had those in Northeast Ohio…and while I knew it wasn’t Riki Tiki Tavi that I was seeing…this is what it reminded me of….
It has been a strange week and that’s okay…I guess? Things are changing…animals are speaking….people are ignoring…and in the end….nature will win regardless….Zia
