Potentially difficult situations lay ahead of me today, so I create an altar dedicated to unswerving strength and clarity and goodness: my magic shoes that take me anywhere I want or need to go, my Rob Gobsalves painting called Ladies of the Lake, a lemongrass candle sitting upon a pottery piece with spikey edges my husband brought home for me on a father/son trip several years ago, and a desert rose. All sit atop unadorned, uncovered wood. And best of all: this altar wrapped itself around me and carried me through the day and well into the night, safely, smoothly, serenely.
