Signs and Portents

This is what I found when I was out walking today. (It would have been a run, except I seem to have screwed up something - groin, IT band, quads - it's not happy.)



A feather with an orange quill. I think it might be from a flicker. I picked it in case Teen wanted to make it into an earring.

A dime. I always like finding money. It says In God We Trust on it. It's a reminder we'll be okay. I've been waiting for a big check for nearly a month now.

A Just Do It keychain fob, identical to the one I carry. It's getting harder and harder to find these, since the campaign was in 1988, 23 years ago. I have an alert for them on ebay, but they only come up a couple of times a year. I've lost a couple myself over the years, so maybe this one is just coming full circle. (The key with the pink circle was my father's house key. He died in 2003.)

Very cool. I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who picks up random stuff when I'm walking down the street. Last week I found a penny sticking out of a dirt filled crack in my sister's old driveway in CA. It was from the year I was born. At the coast on my way down to CA I found this plastic coin that looked like a poker chip that said live, laugh, love (in latin). Sometimes I think these things supposed to be found.
That's how I feel, too! Like there are messages around us if we only have eyes to see them.
I like finding stuff. I think next time I walk I'll take my phone and take pictures of all the mysteries I'm trying to figure out.
Dad was a very quiet man. But rock solid.

I've been roiling around on a foam roller about the size of a bolster. It hurts! Supposedly that means you need it.
