the seasons turn

Phew! It’s fall now. 2011 has been a jumble of events and activities for me since the first firework. To quote my article (written in 2009):

The full date 2011 adds together to a single number, and primary energy of the year, the number 4.

An ancient school of thought says the number 4 resonates with Uranus, the planet of innovation, and unexpected events.  Another school of thought says the number 4 resonates with Earth, the planet of stability and endurance.  The action energy of the number 4 is associated with building foundations, and work.  Work is action with purpose.  Understanding the work that matters to us will promote personal happiness in our life.

My experiences this year have resonated to all of the above with lots of lunar flavors and dramatic emotions. I’m glad there’s still a few months to go because I’m enjoying the turbulence and have some goals yet to complete before the end of the year.

7 romance novels serve a new purpose with an old place mat to prevent slipping...

As soon as I typed those words, my monitor fell off its stand. I’m sure there is some significance to this event, but what could it be? To remind me that I am innovative and can replace the fancy pedestal with a bunch of paperbacks off my shelf? Will this unexpected event be a better position and angle for this high tech monitor? It seems so at the moment.

Or does this have a deeper meaning? Like, this quick and awesome fix would not be available with an ereader and ebooks?

Will this new stand be more stable and endure longer than the adjustable   pedestal that is barely a year old?

Can we get too carried away with potential signs and the significance of the event? 😀

I’ve done tons of work this year that was dedicated to helping our daughters create new foundations for their lives. At the same time, I’ve had huge chunks of time to work on my own dreams and goals, interspersed with a riot of fun and parties.  This is why I’ve been unplugged most of this summer. It’s been exhausting but worth every moment.

This week has been appointments for health checks, hair repair, teeth cleaning and a long overdue eye assessment. (Bifocals instead of reading glasses?) My hot tub should be repaired on Monday and we’ll have a tarp on the roof of our 5th-wheel camper in case the repair wasn’t enough to stem all leaks. The rains are forecast to begin next week… It’s Oregon, it rains.

There’s been a lot of scuttle regarding the 2012 energy but my plans for the year are utterly boring routines, by choice, because I’ve never had it. My sisters and my friends have all given me the same stellar advice this year, “What do you want?”

It’s a good question and until my monitor fell off the stand I didn’t realize how much I didn’t like having it on a tall perch…

  2. It feels like Autumn here in the England and leaves are beginning to fall – that’s why I’ll be taking a holiday to the sunshine from October 1st – a pre-winter boost.

    I think it’s easy to over analyse events!
