I saw Alice in Wonderland this past weekend and just loved it.  I decided I rather fancy the idea of thinking of 6 impossible things before breakfast.  It doesn’t have to be before breakfast though it could be before bed.  I do love having vivid dreams and I go to some pretty outlandish and beautiful places in my dreams.  Why not create more of that?  Of course, I could also think of 6 lovely things before breakfast or bed.  Here’s my list today of 6 impossible things before breakfast:

1. everybody gets their own make-a-wish fairy.  You get three wishes per lifetime ’cause too many and it would get boring but only three and you’d have to be really thoughtful and selective.

2. cloudy skies will now have pull back tabs that you can reach up, pull back the tabs to reveal sunny blue skies  (I know Pacific Northwester’s love that one!)

3. blink and twitch my nose and the housework gets done, laundry folded and it floats down hallways into rooms, opens drawers and puts itself away

4. My summer home is a castle floating in the air and each day we have tea and marvelous cakes with some famous guest from any time in history.  I’ll start with Einstein on Monday, Marilyn Monroe on Tuesday, Abraham Lincoln on Wednesday, Christopher Columbus on Thursday, Jesus on Friday, Rumi on Saturday and the Tooth Fairy on Sunday.

5.  It’s 3010, I’ve got the wisdom of all ages and I’m in a 25 year old body and I teach the keys to happiness and inspire the whole world.

6. Lastly, I am a small gold coin in Martin Luther King’s pocket.  He slips his hand into his pocket and fingers my cool, smooth gold coin-ness while giving his speech “I have a dream…”

Yes, Martin Luther King, I have a dream too, that life is first about dreaming and building castles in the air and last about really believing in them.  Everything starts out first as a vision, a dream and then stay true to it in your heart and just watch how it Becomes.

See you all in 3010.  I’ll be the one accepting the Nobel Prize for finding the Keys to Happiness and I’ll give you all the scoop that the Tooth Fairy let me in on.  Oh, the stories she did tell!

This post is dedicated to all of you out there who’ve never lost your sense of wonder.

midsummer-eve2Midsummer Eve~Edward Robert Hughes

The sun is making it’s final appearance for the day.  You walk out to your mailbox to pick up the day’s mail and barely notice the long shadows reaching across the ground you walk on.  You are tired from the day’s events and ready to settle in for the evening.  Nothing today has been particularly unusual or out of the ordinary.  Nothing that would foretell the next moment that held the possibility of changing everything.  Reaching into the mailbox your fingers instantly touch upon an envelope that is hand addressed to you.  The envelope appears weathered as if it’s traveled some distance.  There’s no return address and the postmark is blurred and illegible.  You walk inside and sit down in your favorite chair.  You open the letter, it addresses you with the familiarity of your first name and this is what you read:

“You’re on the cusp of experiencing welcome relief on a subject that’s been bothering you for some time.  This concern that has been troubling you, is being healed behind the scenes in surprising ways, even as you read this.  God wants you to know that you have reason to smile, as the fairies of the Universe are working on a solution that is so creative, so ingenious that you never would have guessed it would come in this manner.” *

You stare wide eyed at the letter.  You breathe a deep breath of relief.  Muscles you didn’t even realize you held so tightly, soften now.  You smile an inner smile that just lights you up from the inside out.  And from this day forward you live at that end point, knowing the solutions are speeding their way to you.  You have no way of knowing what it will look like or when it will come.  You’re content not knowing when or how or even why.  You are happily willing to rest here in this knowing.  Now you know beyond a shadow of a doubt you are heard, you are answered, you are known, you are cherished.

Fairy Godmothers

I believe that everyone really does have these fairy godmothers.  You could substitute the fairy godmother figure for angels, any archetypal figures or gentle guides. They take many forms and could be in your life for a chance meeting or over a long period of time.  They could be a parent, grandparent, a pet, relative, a friend, a teacher, anyone.

They are part of nature’s encoded ability to always seek harmony and balance.  Anything that ever happens to any of us, no matter how dire the situation seems, is always counter balanced with this supportive, loving energy.

You can look for these gentle guides if you want, you’ll find their indelible influence was always there.  And though there were times, they were nearly overshadowed by painful experience, at the end of the day it is what most wants to be known.  The stories of our lives only half written in the isolation of loss and sorrow, the other half in partnership with gentle guiding lights.
