  • I won’t try to stop you from going where you must go, or attempt to woo you to stay among us. If that is where your spirit calls you, then go there you must. I usually try to pay attention to where the spirits are trying to guide me, and when I listen and follow, life usually follows me on that journey. If I allow someone to talk me out of following my spirit, I usually wind up resenting that person or persons, and get a very sore ass from kicking myself in it for not listening to that still voice within, when I know I shoulda.

    May your spirit guides be with you on your journey. Yours is a powerful voice, and though I do not always fully understand what you’re saying, I feel the strength and the truth in your message. You grasp complex issues that I like to think I understand, but truly, I do not. I will say this to you, Wu. Keep yourself open to the spirit as you go, and let the powerful forces for good in the universe (they still do exist, my friend) assist you. You don’t have to go it alone. There is powerful support, all around you, and just sitting there in a corner café waiting to meet you. Be open to it all.

    If, in the course of your journey, you spot a Cowbird pasture in the distance, and happen to have a few minutes to stop by the side of the field to tell a few tales to the cows grazing, and the birds flitting about there, we will all moo with appreciative gratitude and chirp with delight at your return.

    You were one of my very earliest connections here, Wu, and your compassion and concern for others has always been most palpable. You will undoubtedly be missed while you journey.
