My future.

I don't know what I was expecting, but when we walked into the psychics, we were greeted by two animal skin rugs, one older woman (still attractive), one younger woman (younger than us), a boy (around 10), and a baby-toddler (strapped in a chair and watching the Disney Channel). It turns out that both the woman were psychics. While Jasie was escorted by the older woman behind curtains, in a setting of greater ambience, Liz and Jendar took turns having their palms read by the younger woman, sitting on a couch in the front room, with the television on five feet away. I also could have had that chance, as they were both finished before Jasie, but I waited. The older woman seemed more legit. Once the curtain was closed behind me, the psychic asked me to think of two wishes and tell her one. I told her the one I cared the least about, because I felt less dumb saying it. Though it had nothing to do with my stated wish, she began by telling me that I would be very successful in both "love and money." I wouldn't be rich, but very comfortable. I would get married, and have three children—the first would be a girl. She said she saw me living by the ocean. "Very peaceful. Water." Now this was related to my wish. I told her that I wanted to know the right place for me to move, without explaining my already arrived at LA decision. It was at this point that I granted her more credence. She went on to say that something in the next 4 to 6 months would be a happy thing for me. A happy change. Perhaps related to this, an important letter will come that will require a signature. Either in the mail or email. She doesn't know. She said she saw pens, papers, books around me and asked if I was a student. I told her I just graduated, and she asked what I was doing now. "Looking for a job." "What kind of job?" "A librarian job." "Ahhh." There was more. Some possibly too personal too share, some just sound advice. All in all it was an interesting experience, and interesting to compare to my friends' own palm readings. In each case the respective psychic seemed to say or ask at least one insightful thing for that person. Jendar was asked her connection to New York City, when leaving or staying in the city was precisely the guidance she wanted, Liz was asked if she had plans to travel across the sea, when she wants to go to Europe this summer, etc., etc. Cheers to a $20.00 okay spent!

Ooh. I've always wanted to do that...but have #1 never walked by one, and #2 have always been a little scared of what they might say. Looks like you've got a great little life ahead of you. Enjoy Zena's void of Mac and Max. It's a whole new world.
