How does one recouperate from a car accident.  Not an ordinary car accident, but one where, as a pedestrian, one is knocked down in the middle of the road, by a car, that when you first laid eyes upon its form, it was stationery.

It is nearly three weeks ago since this happened to me, and as I have often thought as I was driving to work and had to pull up at the lights, by a cemetary, to wait for the lights to change.   A raven, plopped upon a sign post in front of me and as I was in space for a few moments, I thought it is an omen.  How do I read it and as I did, I thought – no it is a good omen and left it at that

Later on when I was in hospital I was to remember those words and maybe the raven was warning me to be careful, but I was fortunate as the rucksack that I was carrying fell under my head – thus when I landed upon my back, it took the weight, and my head rested upon it.  If this had not occurred I would have sustained fractures in my body.

So though I am not out of the wars yet, I feel I had made a wonderful recovery, and by next week, will be walking about and ‘elbow unaided.’.     So when I say to you ‘what are you grateful for, I reply to you as well.  I give thanks to the raven, and to my rucksack.

Additionally, I believe it was a message from the universe, and it was to say that according to my cards, that an ending had occurred, and that it was time to move forward.    The signs had been there for awhile, but I had not listened.    I am listening now.

So  though these meanderings are not necessarily that of the supernatural, they are in a sense and as my life seems to be spent a lot in that realm, I choose to see it in that light.

So I need to change my focus,  and the focus is on myself.   That is a good start.   I have a lot of writing to do, maybe this is what it is all about.
