    im fretting that you were up posting at 3:57 am my dear.
    but oh so happy that you were out taking a walk.
    walks are good.
    i always find that jumping on a trampoline is good too.
    something about the way it jumbles the thoughts in my head and i can hop off it with new perspective.
    in fact,
    i think i need to go jump right now.
    even better that it.s raining!
    happy sunday dear friend…i.ll let you know what i see from the air.
    loves.

    *lisa* how great to stop sign bond with dear you & soren!!! i never stop being amazed by all the huge creativity coming out of your house! & again, loooove your latest posting!!

    *chrissy* i don’t know why, but the blog clock always states the time as two hours earlier than it actually is for me! (5:57 then!)…
    what’s a blogger to do?! & i’ll love to hear what you see from the air! (i’d love to hear what you see in a boat, on the land, from a train, or from a box of sand!). happy sunday to you too, dear friend!

    Good things to notice and read the signs given to you. But even better to understand them and act on!

    something about the sunshine of late is trying to tell me something…haven’t figured it out yet but my heart is open and waiting.

    oh yes… beautiful thought. don’t you love finding messages in ordinary things like that! the city just cut down a huge tree on our block – i’ve lost count of the rings. no idea why they chopped it down, but i’m hoping that it was for a good reason, that it was time for something new to grow.

    love this post and i love finding these sweet little messages from the universe that seem to pop up right when we need them as long as we are keen to them and paying attention!!!

    i am on the lookout…yesterday as i was sitting looking out the window…i watched a slew of pelican flying by in what i am certain was a pattern…it was so neat to see that many of them together on some sort of mission…or maybe they were heading to a party…who knows!!! ; )

    one more quick thing….i’m going to have to ask Chrissy how she doesn’t pee her pants when she jumps on that trampoline?!?!? : )

    sending loves to you!
    xoxo

    *kimminita* yes! to all those steps! great to hear from you!!

    *faiza* how intriguing about the sunshine! i realize now that i too have had some sunshine connection…i think too some faiza wavelength connection in the sky with rainbows & all!!

    *aimee* hmmm, something new to grow…& also following such a fully developed other life…
    interesting timing after your own house’s recent clearings! i send you awesome new blossom thoughts!

    *kolleen* what a great sighting of the pelican’s flight pattern & mission…ooh, aah, dear one! AND, you totally cracked me up with your last question & i was fortunate i didn’t pee my pants because of laughing!

    I love this deep processing and your ability to completely switch gears. The sign on my block says “Stop A head”. I wonder how I should interpret that?! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.)

    great thought and photo …

  11. Annette Q says:

    What a great way of shifting your mindset! I don’t think signs like that have come my way in a long while. Perhaps I’m not looking hard enough? Such a lovely post Rachel, thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. ELK says:

  13. Lisa says:

    Go trust is right–The stop sign reflection is very poetic.

  14. Hello from Iowa! Love your city…the twin cities are so much fun to visit! The other day I found a piece of paper with “Open It” written on it. Wow…just what I needed!

  15. Ann Martin says:

    Oh this is just perfect as a metaphor of life itself, and I love the way your carefree lettering compliments the stunning photo.
