Holding a glass of water, Julie Desmarais walked into the room. “I had a feeling you might need some water,” she said.
I hadn’t wanted water, but I didn’t want to be rude. “Thank you,” I said and took a sip.
She pulled out a deck of cards—Doreen Virtue’s Ascended Masters. She spread them out in a fan shape, face down. “Pick one,” she said.
I chose a card at random. When I turned it over, I saw a picture of Oshun, “the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction.” “Drink more water,” the card read.
Just one more inexplicable adventure I thought I’d share, so you could ponder it.
