11.11.11 - TomorrowLand

I find it quite peculiar since being haunted by the number 11 from November of last year, that I awake on 11.11.11 to a message from a friend, "We need to go to this" with an attached video to  TOMORROWLAND.  ... And all I need to know now are the official dates of St.Lucian Carnival 2012, because I have my eyes on Antwerp, Belgium instead.

Even more peculiar ... I am reminded of "God Is A DJ" when Faithless makes an appearance in the video below.  God Is A DJ is a song that I was introduced to in Sydney, Australia ... on a night when I had insomnia and spent the passing hours watching videos.  Funny too, 'cause Faithless has a song with the same name too, Insomnia. ... And I still can see that church I was fascinated with that I kept taking pictures of on that trip to Sydney.

Days after that trip to Australia, tragedy struck ... and "GOD IS A DJ" took on a deeper meaning in my life.  Ever since, particularly around my birthday, the song always has a way of not letting go, it makes its way back into my psyche. I can list the events usually around my birthday which make me take stock of my life ... and reminds me "God Is A DJ."

So without fail, "God is a DJ" is here again. My birthday is on Sunday, and yesterday, after what is being considered St.Lucia's most tragic accident, a bus load of people coming from a funeral drove over a cliff,  I am once again reminded that's exactly how my half sister died. Her funeral too, was only days before my birthday and only days after I first heard "God is a DJ."

I suppose that's why I relish every birthday ... I usually travel, do something I've never done before or   find pleasure in celebrating with few, many friends or complete strangers, eating either hot dogs, roti, or crabs, or cupcakes, drinking 3 bottles of wine or attempting to do 15 shots of tequila, even if regretting later if I have to. For the past 2 years, I have used the occasion to tattoo symbols that have great meaning to me too.

I've come to realize that there is something special and beyond me, having being born at this time ...

"When the Sun moves into Scorpio death is all around us, in the falling leaves and in the fading light of day ~ as the nights grow increasingly longer. The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio Friday, October 23, 2009. Halloween, happens in Scorpio, and with it's witches, ghouls, ghosts, and goblins, we are reminded that Scorpio is the time of year for facing our own scary realities, for working on psychological and spiritual transformation, for looking into sexual issues, for dealing with joint finances and debts...and for learning to trust and let go of our attachment to suffering itself. 

 The essence [of Scorpio] is transformation, and it is inherently mystical. It is a mysticism that sees the power of transformation at work in ordinary reality. Rather than deny the physical universe in order to transcend it, Scorpio will immerse itself in physicality and even drown in it in order to go beyond it."

... And though this year, I've probably missed out on everything humanly possible that I would have wanted to do, such as carnivals and lots more travel.  Even will have to spend Sunday ... sober.  LOL!   I have come to the realization that the universe has blessed me in 2011.  I'm only weeks away from having my second child. Reminded that even in changing seasons, death, there's life!

Best summed up by "Yesterday is History, Today is a Gift, Tomorrow is Mystery..."

.... but forget ALL ABOUT WHAT I'VE SAID, hope you watch this video and feel my joy.
This music has more effect on my spirit, soul than any church (or institution) could.
 I see and feel GOD in this music!

... And I'm ready for next year!  LOL!
