It has not been a particularly good week for me this week. Most people would be excited about a new car but a car is simply a means to get from one place to another and it is the worst investment in the world. Well it is not an investment really. Cars devalue as soon as you drive them – even if like our ‘new’ car they are only new to us.
Maybe it has been Mercury in Retrograde but I have had to make decisions that I do not find easy and perhaps most importantly, could see that Darryl was not well, that he had a new problem. Yesterday it was confirmed that he has a massive clot from above his groin to his toes on his right leg. So he had to go to Emergency at Epworth.
They are fabulous at Epworth but he was not put in the ward until almost midnight and we were beside ourselves. So the week did not end well.
ONE positive in all of this has been my Raven messengers. They have been everywhere, circling, flapping their ebony wings, dancing above the car and last night as I drove back from the hospital, twenty of them flew in formation across the road in front of me. I nearly ran off the road.
Ravens are the keepers of the Temple of Solace and Monika Roleff sent me this amazing photo of a flock she saw near her home. I am not sure which is the most amazing part of this photograph, the strength of the trees or the rookery gathering.
This morning I come to the Temple to sit and give thanks for the wave of support that has come our way. We have had a particularly tough time and reached an all time low around midnight last night.
Today WILL be better.
