From a Childhood

piano keysThe darkening was like riches in the room
in which the boy sat, almost hidden from sight.
And when his mother entered, as in a dream,
a glass trembled in the quiet cupboard.
She felt how the room  betrayed her,
and she kissed the boy: “Oh, you’re here?…”
Then both looked fearfully at the piano,
because some evenings she’d play the child a song
in which he found himself strangely deeply caught.

He sat very still. His great gaze hung
on her hand, weighed down by its ring,
as if struggling through drifted snow
it went over the white keys.

~Rainer Maria Rilke

Angel Number Sequences…

So has it been happening to you lately, or has it ever happened, perhaps, for a few days, weeks or months in a row…the seeing of a triple number anywhere, anytime? It could have been when you mysteriously woke up during the night and glanced at your digital clock, or pressed you iPhone and the time was 3:33 am. It could have happened with your cash total at the supermarket $28.88. It could have happened when turning onto Route 222 in Maryland.

These are known to some as signs from angels – any duplicate number of at least 3 in a row. And each number has a meaning in the angel world. I would think, with suspension of belief implanted, and if you so preferred, that one could look at this occurrence as a  sign from God, Spirit, Energy, the World, the Universe, the Force of Energy that surrounds…which ever you prefer to believe in if not angel. But for explanation sake, I will follow the Angel-World parameters that I’ve discovered recently.

Also note: This has been happening to me all the time. I wake up 1:11 am or 4:44 am. I glance at the clock at work and it’s 3:33. I ring out a customer and the total is $157.77. It’s been going on for a long time now…what are these angels trying to tell me?

111 – Means to monitor your thoughts. Be sure to think about what you want, and not what you don’t want. 111 is like a bright light of flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thought and is manifesting them for you.

222 Newly planted ideas or endeavors are about to become reality. Keep nurturing you idea and it will come to fruition. Don’t quit now! The miracle is about to happen! Keep positive thought alive.

333 The Ascended Masters are near you,  desiring you to know that you have their help, love and companionship. Call upon them often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.

444 The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry. An angel is near by.

555 Major life change is upon you. This change is a natural part of life and is neither positive nor negative. It just is. Perhaps it is a change that you have been seeking. Feel at peace.

666 Your thoughts are out of balance right now and focused on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Your material and emotional needs will be met when you balance.

777 Angel applause!! Congratulations! You are on a roll. Keep up the good work and know that whatever you are wishing for is coming true. 777 is an extremely positive sign and you should expect more miracles to occur.

888 A phase in your life is about to end. This is a sign to be prepared. This could mean you are winding up an emotional career, or a relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t procrastinate. Make your move and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

999  Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to those involved in Earth healing. Mother Nature needs you right now.

000  A reminder that your are one with God (spirit, universe, or universal energies) and to feel the presence of this love within you. Also it is a sign that a situation has come full circle.

Let me know if any of you have experienced an Angel Number Sequence. I’d love to hear your thoughts. I was seeing 444 for the longest time, which was great evidently. Lately I’m seeing 111 in some form and 333. I better monitor my thoughts and think of what I’d like and the Ascended Masters are with me.

Violets, violets, violets….

“I can see meadows, deep woods, which the first outburst of buds mists over with an elusive green, cold streams, forgotten springs drunk up by the sand as soon as they are born,….and violets, violets, violets….

…I can see a silent girl whom spring had already enchanted with wild happiness, with a bittersweet and mysterious joy….

…Short-stemmed violets, white violets and blue violets, and white-blue violets veined with mauve mother-of-pearl, big enemic cowslip violets, which raise their pale odorless corollas on long stems….

…February violets, blooming beneath the snow, ragged-edged, burned with frost, ugly, poor fragrant little things…

…O violets of my childhood!  You rise up before me, all of you, you lattice the milky April sky, and the quivering of your countless little faces intoxicates me…”


This post is dedicated to my mother, the queen of violets.  Forever in my house growing up there were various pots of African Violets throughout, adorning every window sill that faced the sun.  When they became too thick she would divide of flowers and re-plant them, and somehow, always, these little purple miracles would start to grow….Sometimes she’d give them away…as gifts for no reason at all….Today, she still is the queen of violets, but presently only a few sturdy plants adorn her kitchen window, the watering of which is my job this month while she’s away in Florida…Seeing them warms my heart, and coming across these images did the same.  Reminders….memory….

The text with the images above was written by Colette, from a short piece called “The Last Fire.”
