â€œYou are working miracles,â€ Obi-Wan told me a few days ago, â€œwith quiet love and spirituality and beauty.â€
Itâ€™s funny that sheâ€™d say that. She doesnâ€™t know I wear the silver band on my right hand that says â€œAllow Miracles.â€ I thought I was just allowing them rather than working them, but maybe itâ€™s the same thing.
â€œIf you get a chance to speak your truth through any interviews, do it!â€ she suggested. She said she got a flash of someone sticking a microphone in my face. She said a lot of good would come to me through such interviews in the very near future. She didnâ€™t say how near and I shrugged it off.
I donâ€™t do a lot of interviews these days, but they suddenly seem more prevalent with several requests for email interviews on my books. Out of the blue, I had the glowing and beautifully written interview with the Bay Beaconâ€”several pages worth and with color pics of my altarsâ€”focusing on me being the witch next door (Iâ€™ll scan it and post it later). So far, no oneâ€™s burned a cross on my front lawn (against the homeownersâ€™ covenants, I believe) and the neighbors have actually been friendlier to me than ever before.
Today that interview brought me a new acquaintance whoâ€™d been drawn to me through that news feature. Iâ€™m very, very slowly putting together a new spiritual circle but being careful to get the right mix of people. Weâ€™ve yet to meet (flu and tragedies) and Iâ€™m very sure about a couple of them as a good blend of energy and maturity (C, yes, that includes you!) I’d rather have a small group with the right energy than a few dozen fluffy debaters.
The other interview this week is the most amusing event so far. A very enthusiastic reporter with the Wall Street Journal contacted me 48 hours after Obi-Wanâ€™s prognostication and interviewed me the next day. Not on my books, spirituality, fencing techniques, or any of the usual stuff that makes the papers but on a subject related to my financial parenting skills. What a hoot!
The funny part is that my ex is a banker and daily devourer of the Journal (Iâ€™m actually more of a Kiplinger fan), and I think heâ€™d have been really tickled to say he was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal while I wouldnâ€™t have cared. Instead, Iâ€™m the one whoâ€™s tickled because it was such an odd thing manifesting out of the blueâ€”and based on what the reporter had read in my blog. Very cool.
