Have you noticed an upgrade in energy?  Could it be  the Total Solar Eclipse approaching?  I can feel it here at The Cottage, escalating daily, in spite of Mercury Retrograde slowdown.  As I've shared previously, I  know zip about Astrology except to beware of it's programming effects.  The current energy is uplifting, exciting, positive etc, but that might just be feel-good mind control software?  Stay tuned.

Rainbow Stew


Yesterday in a meditative moment I tuned in to  the Ste. Genevieve 'frequency', that revealed a very strong current relative to Creative Force.  My first impression is it's due to all the new shops, galleries, cafes etc that outsiders have moved in with Intention and Attention focused on culture, the  rich heritage and perhaps more?  Let's see.



This weekend  is Jour de Fete at Ste. Genevieve, Mo,  where I lived years ago. We went yesterday, perfect weather for a perfect day, gallery hopping,  lunch at the Beirgarten, antiquing, browsing arts & crafts booths, touring the lovely Creole architecture homes and visiting family there.  Visit gorgeous Ste. Genevieve anytime, Missouri's oldest settlement west of the Mississippi River.  When you go, listen carefully, you may hear a German or even French accent.

Looking for your perfect mate?  According to Edgar Cayce, several could fill the bill.  In the meantime,  use your vision board to make it real! Wanna travel and live the good life with your mate?  Do you have a Passport, know proper etiquette, know how to camp/line dance or whatever fits in to the lifestyle you want?  Use your imagination. . . reality goes where Attention flows.


Protocol Clarification
  In the adventure of life there are no "brownie points" earned for suffering, sacrifice, or tears. Nor for anguish, altruism, or selflessness. In fact, you don't even get any for generosity, gratitude, or compassion.
In time and space there are no "brownie points," period.
Might as well just do what makes you happy,

"Since human life and human consciousness are intrinsically one with the life of the planet, as the old consciousness dissolves, there are bound to be synchronistic geographic and climatic natural upheavals in many parts of the planet, some of which we are already witnessing now."


In spite of the Mercury Retrograde pre-shadow period - or maybe because of it, it's been a busy short week here at The Cottage.  Finding and fixing tech glitches was time consuming/expensive but has already archived.    When units of experience archive so quickly it's a reminder to me about the nature of personal reality - is it real or software?  We used to say that and laugh but today we realize that it could be software playing is all too real and not funny for those who comprehend the concept  of a computer simulated reality.
