Watching for the signpost.


Gemini (May 21 — June 21)
A straightforward path will soon emerge to get you from here to the destination that matters the most. It may not be your ideal of routes, but it's the best one. And before long, there will be a very enticing branch in the road.

Here is my horescope according to the Toronto Star. I'm not superstitious, but these have been creepily uncanny for the last few months.

Right now my road is going straight up hill for the next 5 weeks as I pile on more tasks than are humanly possible. But I'm going to manage it all somehow. One of my favourite quotes is "When you reach the end of all you know, hope demands that you believe one of two things: that there will be ground to stand upon or you will grow wing's to fly" I believe I read it in one of Madeline L'Engle's books.

I'm not sure how I'm going to make it, but I'm determined to do it as gracefully as possible and be ready to turn the corner. Some days it would be nice if my life came with a map, but most days fate provides enough tools to get there and its kind of fun being surprised.

Anyways, I have some rugged hiking to do today. The photo (which might have been taken by Gabe, and most certainly was taken with his Camera) is highly appropriate on many levels. Surficially - we ended up in Tobermory by accident because my navigator refused to read a map or allow me to read a map. Subsequently we got lost (as much as one can on a road trip with no really fixed destination) and ended up snowed in in Tobermory. But lots of little things worked themselves out. We found a great place to stay and had a lovely dinner, we got to the park while the maintenance guy was in and he let us check out the display even though it was closed, and we got some really lovely pictures even if I didn't get to ski. On a deeper level, I found some signposts for the rest of my life.

So, Road - rocky and uphill as you are - get ready to be climbed because I am simply going to succeed by force of shear will if I have no other tools at my disposal. However - I won't complain if happen to grow wings or at least if you let me catch my breath at the top.

Aigh.
