Winter Solstice 2020
marked the beginning of Year 4
of my 8 year MiddleWorld Apprenticeship.
To honor the day, I went to a local park
and spent some time in prayer
with my intentions for the new year.
When I returned to my truck in the parking lot,
I discovered the drivers window busted
and my purse and several other items stolen.
I am grateful I had thick gloves on
so I could easily clear out the glass. I am grateful they did not steal the truck
and that I was still able to drive home.
As soon as I got home,
I put a stop on my credit cards
and contacted my insurance company.
I was able to get someone to my house
the following day to replace my window.
I am grateful this repair was able to happen so quickly.
After my first wave
of response to this experience
I noticed a strong charge of energy
coursing through my body.
It was a charge of adrenaline.
A charge of violation.
A charge of knowing I would be without
credit cards, cash or ID for a while.
A charge of frustration
of having to deal with all this.
