Wishing on the Sun

So fellow travelers, a few weeks ago I came across a post about a phenomenon called Manhattanhenge . Twice a year the setting sun lines up exactly with the east-west grid of streets in New York creating a simltaneous golden glow of light on every cross street in the city . (Neil deGrasse Tyson has a good description you can read  here )
Naturally it’s become one of my wish list experiences. Weather permitting I might catch it this summer or sometime in the next few years.

If for some reason I don’t that might be ok because Friday morning’s sunrise created my own moment of alignment. As I came downstairs just before 6am, I saw a  beautiful golden light. The rising sun had aligned exactly with the center of one glass panel in our front doorway.


It cast prism rays all through the entrance as if my wish had been heard and acknowledged in a small yet personal way.

One wish silent thought
Golden light replies You are
heard and you are loved

Do I really believe the sun hears my thoughts? Not on an intellectual level, no of course not. Yet we have lived in this house for 29 years and although I have seen many beautiful patterns created by the sun shining through the glass panels, not once have I seen the sun align with the center diamond before. Perhaps it’s me who finally hears the messages in Light.

Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
