This perhaps may be proof of having read one too many of the magic realism books by Jorge Luis Borge, Cervantes, or Gabriel García Márquez...where the normal world becomes mythical, and ordinary things operate on Disney principles.
For, last night, The Lady in the Moon wasn't simply smiling at me. The lacy clouds from the sea rushing over pretty face animated it...and she seemed to be beaming affirmation for my course...
Then, when I looked down I was standing on an accidental heart...
I'd read an electrical engineering genius swore that if you work on a computer all day...standing barefoot on a sheet of aluminum foil for a few minutes will cleanse the EMF from your system. Somehow my sheet of aluminum had morphed into an emphatic heart shape by my standing on it 8-times over the past two days...
I'll accept the Heart-Beaming-Moon combo as a sign that my sails are set for the Provence coastline in the near-term...
In the meantime...
