My spirit was fed so beautifully today. I felt enlightened, proud, open, and perhaps most importantly, free. So free.

I had a vivid dream that made me wake with a start this morning. It was like a rebirth. I have never experienced anything like it before. All week I had asked the Universe — after some advice from a friend — for an answer to my most pressing life questions. This dream offered stunning direction.

It set the tone for a pleasant day, one where I took a deep breath, a long walk (in the humidity!) and relaxed into a nice get-acquainted brunch. The eventual thunder storm only added to the serenity, with the beat-beat-beat of raindrops against my windows.
