If you could read my mind ...

The poster said:
3rd Annual Holistic and Psychic Fair

Join the many wonderful, light minded people
who are coming together
to share their skills and wisdom!

I thought "light minded" was some sort of delightful Freudian slip typo -- like "three bricks short of a load". 

But it's the other kind of light.  The light from within.  

Why do they need to put up direction signs ? Shouldn't folk just know where it is ?

Hmmmm.  The folk at the tea leaf, reading booth were drinking coffee from paper cups.  Am I the only one who finds that amusing ?

There was palm and aura reading, angel guide readers, hypnotists, energy healers, psychic readers, chakra clearing, theta healing and a witch or two.   There was even a trained Abundance and  Perception Coach.   Whaaaaaat  ???   Why not skip the coach and just buy the $2  Abundance tokens ?   I know who's going to have all that "abundance".  The person selling the tokens, that's who !

There were crystals and rocks, and gems and eagle feathers, sage to be smudged and bowls that ring and maybe sing.    There were humming tuning forks, wands, rough stones, tumbled stones, talking runes, spheres, chakra jewellery, totem carvings and magic spells.

Part of me wants to believe in the different and "supernatural". Part of me looks at it all with a jaundiced, mocking eye.  I wonder, is fear at the heart of that mockery ?  Am I afraid of what I don't understand ?

I'll give it more thought tomorrow -- while I'm smudging my house.

Hamlet    Act 1, scene 5

Horatio: [coming across Hamlet talking to his father's ghost]
               O day and night, but this is wondrous strange!

Hamlet:  And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.
               There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
               than are dreamt of in your philosophy.


  1. You don't want to read MY mind!
    I did go to one of these about 16 years ago and they predicted Ian's birth. Funny, huh.

  2. You were probably 9 months pregnant at the time !



Thanks for stopping by. I really do love to read your comments.
