Wake Up Calls

seeking glimpses of spirit in every day life

"... cherishing yourself in order to be who you are. This is the basis of all healing.”

Birthday Girl

I’m not one for material things. My brand new rose gold MacBook, though, has overnight become a rare object of my affection. I named her. Scarlett, like my girl-crush, Johansson. She’s all configured with edgy flowers, and in my eyes she wears those severe eyeglasses worn by women that are smart and sexy.

She lounges with me before dawn as I type, flipping lazily though video clips and synonyms, and tossing the best ones my way. She’s pink. Not teenager pink. She’s flamingoes and hibiscus. The full desert moon. She is a single lotus and a bed of rubies. And a silvery blue green dragonfly.

She was a gift from my favorite guy. He doesn’t show himself in outward ways. A Pisces, he was born dreamy and intuitive. He doesn’t need to study angels and Reiki, like I do, in order to know shit.

He just said he saw this Apple and thought she could have been made especially for me. And he was right. I didn’t even tell him I’d started writing a blog, cluncking away with my beat up Samsung, constantly stopping to unstick the A. But he knows things about me. Like how I should have a pink computer that reminds me of a flamingo. For him and for her I am thankful, feeling a pretty special at 4am I am, me and my backlit keys.

(About the flamingo pic. Poor Pinky: “A Chilean flamingo named Pinky is pictured in Busch Gardens, in Tampa Bay, Florida in this undated handout photo. Pinky which was known for its dancing was euthanized at a Florida theme park after being badly injured by a man who reached into its pen and threw it to the ground, Tampa police said on August 3, 2016.
