Divine Light

On my trip back from Port Townsend in June, my flight from Dallas to Little Rock was cancelled. There were no flights available until the next day at 6pm so I opted to rent a car and drive the 5.5 hours back home. At one point, I called my husband and told him I would probably stop in Texarkana, get a room and drive the remainder the next day. But as my trip went on, (playing 80's music really loud to keep me awake) I began to feel more energized. I decided to stop off and get a coffee and donut to get me through the rest of the 3 hours home. After I got back on the interstate, I saw a meteor. At first it was really bright. Too big and bright for just a "falling star". It turned blue. Then green. And soon disappeared as it got close to the ground off in the near distance. It all happened so quickly that I was a bit stunned at first. Did I really see what I think I saw? I had just written about a metaphorical meteor a few weeks back....here.

I have the power to release it with writing and painting. 
I can come here and send it out into the universe until it begins falling to the earth and is consumed by the atmosphere. 

Beautiful obliteration!
seeking somewhere to rest for a while, it's molecules break loose
the matter of its makeup all of a sudden make no sense.
the reality is no longer held together by turmoil and verbal abuse

This piece of writing proved to be such a healing turning point in my life. And here is this visual turquoise beautiful light coming out of nowhere. This gift. This sign. And it was just seen when I made the decision to make the drive home. 
I don't believe in coincidences. 
What I saw that night around 10:30 pm was no coincidence. I saw this beautiful sign only after little intricate details and decisions must have been met for me to witness its descent. 
This lining up of circumstances gave me pause. What we are doing in this creative journey matters. It heals. It catapults me into stratospheres I never expected. It holds me there and I feel renewed and comforted. This is why I write. This is why I paint. I must. It is what my Creator designed me to do. In His image. 

This is Divine Light.

  1. This powerfully written tale gave me chills because Mindy hit the nail on the head. When we change our course sometimes we change our life! Sometimes not always for the better at that moment but the future often gives so much more than we could have expected!!!

  2. I LOVE this story Mindy and the artwork, WOW. You captured the moment perfectly. I believe in the magic of falling stars, meteors, and trails of light through a night sky. Thanks sweet woman for sharing this with us.
