With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees

Elephant Journal: Something Waits Beneath it All—Winter’s Invitation to Aloneness.
I wake to a swirling of white outside, catching in the kiwi vines and framing the edges of my window panes. The first snow.

On November 5 and 6, 2020, before going to bed look for the moon in your eastern sky. It’ll be a bright waning gibbous moon, and you might notice two bright stars in its vicinity.

Inner Journey: IMAGINE YOUR IDEAL FUTURE
“Your imagination is your preview to life’s coming attractions.”
— Albert Einstein
If you were to create an ideal future for yourself, what would it be like?
All things that now exist in form were once simply ideas in consciousness. We each hold the power to manifest different circumstances for our lives. If we wish to manifest a new reality for ourselves, we need to consistently focus our imagination on the ideals we seek to realize.
Remember to explore your ideal in terms of qualities, not people or things. What qualities do you most want in life? Freedom? Respect? Playfulness? Abundance? Whatever qualities you seek, imagine experiencing them now and be open to new ways to discover those qualities appearing in your life.
“Change is created by those whose imaginations are bigger than their circumstances”

“Emotion: The human spirit experienced in the flesh.”
When we “wear our heart on our sleeve” it means that we show our emotion. Emotions can be positive or negative, but they certainly are an important part of our existence. Emotions are one thing that makes us human – we are here with these bodies to feel all these feelings and learn and grow from the experience.

Smooth your way through the day by being as respectable as time and circumstance require. Fit in, look and sound the part that you’ve been assigned, and get a lot done with very little or no resistance. In general, being respectable can be a good thing and serve you well, especially when dealing with new people or with those who don’t know you very well.
