About 20 years ago I went to a psychic. All in all, he was pretty accurate in pinpointing what was going on in my life at the time. I was impressed even though I was a tad circumspect about his future predictions for me. He knew my birth month – crab is July’s symbol so of course he could say that in order for me to be truly at peace I should live by the water. Still, I thought of that statement often.
I grew up happily near the water in the beautiful North Okanagan. In later teen/early 20 years, I really didn’t care if I was by water, unless it was in my rye or there were ‘boys’ on the beach!
I didn’t live by the water in Calgary but for the most part I was happy and content. I had a beautiful home, great job, wonderful lifelong friends and family, not to mention the breathtaking surrounding landscape. Most importantly, I met Mark there.
We have been in Parksville BC for about 7 weeks now and honestly I have never experienced such ‘at peace’ moments as I’ve had here. It’s like exhaling a deep breath or saying PHEW. Even though we’re going through so many life changes, this place feels right. Accurate psychic prediction or coincidence, I don’t care. I feel like I’m home.
