She asked me to shuffle the deck. I know how this works, how my energy is transferred in this manner to the cards. I also remember that sometimes it just feels right - sometimes a card just jumps out at you. In this case, I kept coming back to one card, and put that pile at the top of the deck. She turns the card over.
"Wheel of Fortune, reversed..."
Twenty minutes later, I had heard her sum up the upcoming changes in my life. The message was positive, but it also revealed some information about two major players in my life that surprised me greatly. Both were confirmations, one a confirmation of fears, and the other of a hope for the future.
The next day, I played the recording the lady had made for a friend of mine. We talked about the message, and I thought about it a lot that day. I was trying to decide what to do with the information presented. I felt torn between revealing it to the other two people involved, or waiting to see what unfolded.
Finally, I told one of them. Curiously, he contradicted what the cards told about him. I thought the cards accurately represented something I already suspected, and it's possible that this person was telling an untruth.
However, if they were being honest, and it really was untrue what the cards revealed about them, then were the cards wrong about the other person? I am not sure I am completely a believer about any of it, but I wonder. If it is possible that what came out in the cards was really my fear about this person, would what it revealed about the other person just be what I hoped would happen?
Only time will tell.....

(Yes, I am still talking about my road trip vacation, so I am a slacker, almost done! )
Have you ever had a moment where all your senses just seem to gel, where a song came on the radio that coincidentally summed up what you were experiencing at that moment from your other senses? That is what this was like for us. We couldn't even talk, held into the moment, the sensation of watching these sublime peices of machinery crank out to the tune of the song that happened to come on the radio, "Shine on Crazy Diamond". It was a Pink Floyd moment like something from a video movie of theirs. I can't recreate this for you, except to say that here are the images we were processing, only their motion was perfectly matching the movement of the song, the lyrics of which I am throwing in here, to give you a sense of what we were experiencing....
Remember when you were young, You shone like the sun. Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, Like black holes in the sky. Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfireOf childhood and stardom, Blown on the steel breeze. Come on you target for faraway laughter, Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, You cried for the moon. Shine on you crazy diamond. Threatened by shadows at night, And exposed in the light. Shine on you crazy diamond. Well you wore out your welcome With random precision, Rode on the steel breeze. Come on you raver, you seer of visions, Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine
