A New Kind of Prayer Ceremony

palm_tree_2Tonight is ‘palm’ night. Not palm as in the palm of hand, nor palm as in a personal digital assistant Tonight we are planning something to take the frigid edge off, and just in case you’re interested, here are the instructions:

  1. Take one household palm tree and set it on the dining room table
  2. Pretend the mounds of snow outside are really dunes of pristine white sand.
  3. Put on and listen to Beach Boys CD
  4. Cut up a coconut
  5. Cut up a pineapple
  6. Drink coconut milk
  7. Make and drink Pina coladas
  8. Eat coconut meat and fresh pineapple
  9. Run sink water and pretend it is ocean waves
  10. Go to Weather.com and check the weather for St. Croix
  11. Go take a hot and steamy shower
  12. Give up snow for Lent
  13. Pray for spring

An author, a teacher, a candlestick maker? I am lucky enough to have followed my muse through a most eclectic life of many careers, many interests, and many friends and liasions. Two beautiful children, now grown and one their own, several books -- the penultimate accomplishment dream come true, a hores trainer, a college professor, and a stint in corporate America to validate my feelings that I never, ever want to go there again. So I donned my ruby slippers and dared to take those different paths, those diverging paths, and that has made all the difference! (Thank you, Robert!)
