There must be some misunderstanding.

Superstition... you can have it one way or another.  You can't cherry pick where and what "signs" you want to heed, or even where and what the signs are.  There's an old expression that says, "God is everywhere or God is nowhere."  You can't have it both ways.  Misunderstanding, by Genesis was playing when I went in for coffee this morning.

There must be some misunderstanding.
There must be some kind of mistake.

And I don't want my omens coming in the form of shitty, old pop tunes anyway.  Too much irony given the time spent talking about what shit they were.

The sense of foreboding is still there though.  My instinct is rarely this far off target so something is afoot.  It's probably something quite obvious but that's the way that works too.  It's hardest to see when it's right under one's nose.


On the brink of change again, in the next few months anyway.  It's about time to be moving on but being superstitious I'm not about to jinx it by divulging the details prematurely.  It's definitely time to be moving on though.  This thing I'm doing here, hiding out over the expressway, is simply not sustainable.  The only wrong action is inaction.  It's time to play coyote and roam.  More on that at another time.

"The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life."

If you've ever tried to follow the path of a dragonfly, you see that it can hover in one spot almost interminably, and then creep forward, but then rocket off at an oblique angle unexpectedly and seemingly with no perceptible purpose.  There's a lesson that somewhere, about the importance of staying in motion even as you hover in one place.  It's rare to capture a photo of a still dragonfly.  It takes patience, so there's a lesson there also.

My next change will be at a more oblique angle.  That much is certain.
