Meteor

 I wonder if people living in 3421 will look back on us and find us primitive? If the species survives, that is.

I ask this question because the weirdest thing happened to me, and my scientific dogma wants to dismiss it. But I just can't.

All through this Samhain season I have talked to my ancestors in all the usual ways that I do it. The only difference this year was the awesome Moth Man vigil candle I got for my shrine, something my dad would have loved.

The night before Halloween, there was an alert about a solar storm that could possibly cause the Northern Lights to be seen as far south as New Jersey. It's on my bucket list to see the Northern Lights, but I know it won't happen from the comfort of my home. The light pollution is intense around here.

No matter. After dark I went upstairs and looked out the bedroom window towards the north.

And in the split second I found myself looking out, a meteor streaked across the sky.

This had to be a whopper of a meteor to be seen over the light pollution. It might be the first time I ever saw a meteor from home. And the Orionids peaked two weeks ago, and it was only about 10:00 pm.

The day after Halloween, I got a message from the seller of the property I want to buy. She got the survey, and it's all systems "go." At the very latest I'll make the transaction next April during my spring break. Perhaps earlier if it can be done remotely.

I hadn't heard a word from the seller since August and was beginning to believe she had changed her mind.

The skeptic in me says it was a total coincidence that I happened to hear about a solar storm, and I happened to be standing by the window when a meteor blew by that happened to be bright enough to beat the light pollution. But this time the spiritual me says, "Yo, your fam be winkin' at you from beyond the Veil."

And I just can't stop thinking about that land. It's the perfect place to watch a meteor shower.

I'm going with family beyond the Veil. The signs are there for the reading...

I hope that meteor does indeed bode well for the property you want to buy! The Northern Lights have been super intense here in Alberta over the past couple of weeks or so. In the middle of one night recently, there was a spectacular display right over Edmonton, light pollution and all -- that's how strong the aurora were! Of course, I was fast asleep and missed them. Too bad, because the last time I saw Northern Lights was in Winnipeg about 25-30 years ago and I miss them.

Pretty cool sighting for you. We saw the northern lights one year while driving from Maryland to Kansas. It was beautiful.

Love,
Janie

Once in awhile, something works out!

I'm going to say something silly: this reminds me of the Hallmark movie I watched last night, "Gingerbread Miracle" about magical wish cookies. Sounds like yours kicked in.

Sounds like a reward from the great beyond. Accept and enjoy!
