What a difference a day makes in Colorful Colorado. The storm has affected travel. It is 11 miles of wet snow between here and The Goddess Isis Books and Gifts where I was scheduled to read today. I am riddled by my own guilt, because, despite the sign across the street from me, it just doesn’t look that bad outside. Not as bad as the storm a few weeks past. However, the predictions of the few next hours have kept me away. My car windshield ices up during these storms. Last year, I had to pull over, my windshield wipers broke. A few years ago, the whole windshield broke. Mechanics have been no help. If you have a suggestion, please feel free to comment.
I love The Goddess Isis Books and Gifts store. It all has to do with the people who work there. Everyone is simply wonderful and knowledgeable. The store is locally owned and run by Karen and Julie, whose presence at the store creates a wonderful, intelligent, tender, creative, and humble energy in the store. All of the staff are enlightened, aware and intuitive.
Karen is one a premier herbalist and author. Julie has such a wealth of knowledge and goodness that it makes it fun just to stand next to her as she explains one item or another sold by the store. Both sparkle.
The store has amulets made by these two wonder women that you cannot find elsewhere. Formulated by Julie, Karen or one of the other talent staff in the store, these amulets are personalized to your specific need. Especially noted are Julie’s amulets for women who have trouble conceiving. Testimonials prove one child born for each of the years she first entered school (somewhere around 61).
The best plan is to actually visit the store, located at 2776 South Broadway, Englewood, CO. But if you are afraid to drive in spring snow (one of my offending fears), you can still shop on-line at The Goddess Isis Books and Gifts website.
This store has a special energy all its own. If you ever are in the area, it is an experience worth feeling.
(Wow, as I was double-checking this post, I just noticed the shadow of a fairy sprite on the left side of the blossom picture...can you see it? )
