"In a way, we are magicians.
We are alchemists, sorcerers and wizards.
We are a very strange bunch.
But there is great fun in being a wizard." ~ Billy Joel
It IS great fun to create. We make magic potions everyday in our daily lives, from our creations of work, play, friendship, artwork, music, stories and relationships.
Yesterday WAS a magickal day, wasn't it? I heard from so many of you about the idea of your "PERFECT DAY".
I will tell you mine.
I actually have 2 perfect days (oh the Gemini curse/blessing :)
My Perfect Day Away:
This day starts with plane tickets to a sunny place. Greece perhaps. To visit the Temples of Athena and Zeus. Or maybe it would be France to visit Notre Dame and Chartres. I am there to speak, perform and to conduct seminars. Sort of a cross between Doreen Virtue, Loreenna McKennitt, Esther Hicks and Erma Bombeck. A fun, spiritual, musical counselor and author. I would perform some glorious music in a huge cathedral, with Harry and hit those harmonies that would ring the rafters. I would travel to sell my books, help counsel people with Mystic Merlyn guidance and I would have my tribe/crew around me. There would be back drops and video playing behind me while we performed. My dearest loves would be with me to experience the sights and sounds of these exotic places. Money would not be an issue as the tour would be covering all our needs with more coming in from people who really were into us all. I would be able to really help people to help themselves. I would feel safe, loved and adventurous all at the same time.
My Perfect Day at home:
I would have a home on the water. Canandaigua Lake perhaps. A rambling ranch set on a knoll just above the lake. There would be time in my day to write, play music, rehearse and for taking walks in the woods. My home would be separate from my home today, which I would finally give over to Harry for his needs. I would have some space. I am not hard hearted tho...He could live with me as long as he didn't bring any gear over. It would be MY place to fix as I would see fit. There would be friends over, and we would concoct things, paint together, cook or write together, like in my Creativity Circles or StoryBook Clubs. Just as friends are often here now, but I would have more room for us all....and a fire pit, and a great room for conversations about books, gatherings of my magic friends for blessings and rituals and for music sessions with my many musician friends. There would be lust in my life. And satisfaction of self. And harmony. And safety. And true friendship.And snuggles and lust and love with those I love.
There's a lot there that is good.
We must needs now to do a MAGICK thing.
We are starting on a Journey.
A Wizards Journey.
We are packing our saddlebags and we can't carry everything we want to take.
We have to take the basics of what we need.
You have your dreams, you have stated them on yesterdays' blog.
But we have to whittle them down a bit.
Now, our EXERCISE today, is to whittle these WONDROUS ideas to their ESSENCE.
What do you want MOST of all of your rambling, lovely dreams?
What are the elements that are common to starting the process for these dreams to come true?
Think on this thought today......
Post your markers on this trail below to leave word for others on our journey together.
Be safe and foot true. Be Brave in your Quest.
I leave you with this signpost for the day:
"The wizards represent all that the true 'muggle' most fears:
They are plainly outcasts and comfortable with being so.
Nothing is more unnerving to the truly conventional than the unashamed misfit!"~ J.K. Rowling
