I suddenly lost Saba, my teacher of unconditional Love, Joy and Excitement Thursday night. Saba was my companion for 11.75 years. I was entrusted to care for this beautiful creature, he taught me how to Love, how to Laugh and to see the Magic of life every single day.
Austin Ghost Tours
I picked up a part time job for October working as a guide with Austin Ghost Tours www.austinghosttours.com and I have to say, it is more fun than work.
I am doing some of the Trolley Tours, I did the first one on Friday night. I had a lot of studying to do; there is a lot of material to learn. It was excited and nervous kicking this new adventure off: I was pleased with the results. I get to do it again on Friday night and it will be even better this week.
I was having my lunch yesterday at the picnic table, a sandwich and some watermelon when a small black and orange butterfly landed on my lunch sack. I was pleasantly surprised and smiled to myself: I love butterfly’s the brilliant colors, the way they gracefully drift through the air, the magic they convey. We were just watching each other; I was admiring the color of its wings, the beauty intrinsic to itself. Much to my surprise, this little creature drifted up to my face and landed on my nose. I felt its tiny feet, his wings flap before my surprised eyes and then he drifted off on his way across the lot, meandering here and there before heading for the patch of flowers off in the distance. How unusual, how exciting, what an amazing event just occurred in my life: I just got kissed by a butterfly.
A friend of mine said when I told him what happened, “what a Zen moment”. Another friend said it was a good omen. To me it was a beautiful moment, a magical occurrence and an event to remember.
