Years ago, when we moved into our current home, one of the things that sold me on this house was the fireplace. As soon as the moving company left I was out shopping for a fireplace screen. My vision was a star which, sadly, I could not find anywhere. As the hot days of summer turned into chilly autumn evenings I was almost in a panic to find something - anything. I 'settled' for this one.
It had a tag that proclaimed the design a Mariner's Compass. "Big deal." I thought, what does that mean to me?
Sitting here early one morning, quietly meditating on my day, I noticed the Wheel of the Year. I had started my day this way countless times, but on this day, because I had been studying the wheel of the year, I saw a hidden treasure.
I'm enjoying my studies of celebrating / living my life based on what is going on in nature. It seems a much more peaceful way to live. Now I look at my fireplace screen and I'm sure it was made just for me.
