Day 81 – March 22, 2018

Once again I am unable to complete the WPC as the effects of winter storm Toby continue to make navigation a bit difficult. So turn to the daily prompt, and it’s Talisman.  So understanding what could be defined as that contains or holds extraordinary force.  Literal, I know, but I liked the concept. Or as I would define as “a gadget that holds some juju”.  I did have one object that I did carry with me throughout my treatment of cancer. And I probably put a lot of focus into the piece.  But now, 9 years later, I am not even quite sure where it is.  At one point I went through this phase of learning, identifying and understanding  more about the powers of crystals.  I happen to carry one around sometimes, should I feel anxious or nervous, and use it as a “worry stone.” So then I realized that I do have something that, in the back of my mind, I feel is somewhat a guardian, especially when I am driving.  In fact, a few of the items were ones I placed over my rear view mirror of my first owned car. Since then, the collection has grown a bit. I have lost some, through wear and tear, over the years.  But I have also supplemented some.  All the objects, in the photo, are significant in their own way. And perhaps, subconsciously, I feel more focused and safe.  I also realize that any time I have had to take them down, like for replacing a windshield, a rear view mirror, or just a thorough cleaning, I get very uncomfortable and, now that I think about it, have an urgency to get them back in place.  So call it what you will, it is something I really don’t think about, but would notice the second it wasn’t there.  Take a breath and enjoy the air!
