You’re successfully balancing a challenging situation now…


“Although there is a challenging situation around you now, you’re successfully balancing this! Well done!”
Your Angel’s Message:
The angels have sent you this card to congratulate you for getting through a difficult situation with grace. Perhaps this is something that you are still in the midst of. You are focusing on the positives. You won’t let this hiccup block your abundance. People around you will look at you with gratitude, approval and such respect. You will get through all life’s difficulties and challenges with the aid of the angelic realm. They hear your prayers for help and help is coming swiftly. Look out for signs from the angels. These could come in the form of dreams, songs on the radio, strange little coincidences and so on.

You are advised to remain calm and grounded. Be clear in all your communications in terms of what you are hoping to achieve. Visualise positive outcomes and these will come to fruition. Archangel Metatron can be called upon now to increase your energy and motivation. He’ll help you to take care of your priorities. You can manifest your dreams into reality. Other meanings of this card include the following: travel, transportation, a leap forwards, an award or promotion, willpower and self-discipline.
What You Should Do:
Remain grounded and calm. Focus clearly on what you’re trying to achieve. Your determination and self-control are at their peak!

Albany Airport, NY


In January three years ago,

I had a harrowing experience @ Albany Airport

with the TSA.

On my trip to Phoenix,

in April, 2017,

two agents

who I’ll call “Big Gel” and “Little Gel”

because of their hair styling,

treated me with utmost respect,

and I noticed a complete renovation of the whole area’s staging.

Southwest Airlines did well

and when I had to phone the TSA from Sedona

about my missing key fob for my car

they went out of their way to verify that my car was safely parked

where I had left it

in the short term parking.

They examined my needed meds and diabetic food stuffs


and acknowledged my age of 76 years

with deference.

TSA knows me now.

It’s a pleasure having their acquaintance!



Water me
Swim me
Tip your toe
Slurp your tongue.

Freeze me
Throw me
Catch me
Puddle me.

Float me
Dive me
Ponder me
Respect me.

I need to see my grandchildren grow


Annika Chef ready to grill


Every week
I need to see my grandchildren grow

To know
They have a grandmother such as I

Creative quicksilver lady dropping seeds

With needs
Built in for curiosity, loyalty, respect and fun

To run
And bike and spin things-flashing light shining love-rays

Every week.

Are you part of the plot?
Are you part of the audience?

It’s taken me awhile to focus on what the Waldorf School wants for its students.
It doesn’t allow passive audiences.
Instead, fosters initiative.
Wants to develop collaboration
Respect and care for each other.

Yes, above shows how to use an iPad camera and filters,
but also how to watch each other, take turns and see and listen to each other.

I asked the 5 year old what days her 3 year old brother would be joining her at school.
She will attend 5 mornings; he, 2 mornings.
She answered, “maybe on soup day”.
On soup day, the children bring a fresh vegetable, and they cook a soup.The concoctions get mixed reviews.
We call this day “Friday”.
What is more important, to name and spell Friday or survive by making soup?
What are these Waldorf people teaching my grand children?
