Can’t Read for Everyone

Sometimes, you just have to say "No."

Sometimes, you just have to say “No.”

You know the saying, “You can’t please everyone”?

Well, I’ve got a new spin on it: “I can’t read for everyone.”

Here’s a little story. I was doing readings at Whimsies Incognito one evening. It was quiet, and two women came in, not sure if they were in the right place. The first woman sat down, while her friend looked around.

From what I remember (and keep in mind, I rarely remember the content of people’s readings), it wasn’t a great reading. She looked bored through the entire reading (all ten minutes of it) and got annoyed when the timer went off. “That’s it?” she said. Had I been a younger, more inexperienced reader, I probably would have been reduced to tears at her reaction. Instead, I cheerfully chirped “Yup!”, she paid, and then she said snidely to her friend hovering in the doorway, “Don’t bother, she’s not worth it,” as they sailed out the door.

Tricksy Intuition

How does Seattle figure into a conversation about misleading intuition? Read on.

How does Seattle figure into a conversation about misleading intuition? Read on.

I’d like to speak to y’all today about the proposal that never was, and how sometimes other people’s intuition about a situation can really mess with your own. How is it possible that though everyone has intuition, we don’t all intuit the same thing? It’s probably because the translation, or interpretation, is different, and/or the attachment to the outcome is more or less. Food for thought.

Many years ago, I was living with my then boyfriend, and we were planning to go away for a long weekend to Seattle. Why Seattle? It was a place neither of us had been, and it was during the fall season, which we both loved.

I had made my request to my office job for vacation days. In the weeks that followed, more than one person from my day job implied that I was probably getting proposed to, since we happened to be going away the weekend of our anniversary.Continue Reading
