And the winner of the draw is……

IMG_4835 I have odd religious beliefs. Although I am certainly agnostic bordering on atheistic when it comes to God, I do find myself believing in /paying close attention to other ‘supernatural’ occurrences. For example, I am a strong believer in luck, bad luck, the evil eye, ghosts (under certain circumstances), and fate. How I reconcile this belief with my lack of faith in the afterlife or in a higher divine power is unknown to me… : ) that’s just the way I’ve always been. Sometimes I think I would have made a good animist—I totally think the world is filled with different life-forces that inhabit it and exert their influence over us humans…

I am getting all mystical right now because I think FATE, for some odd reason, decided the winner of this draw for samples of rosy fragrances. Here’s what happened. I typed out all entrants’ names, and then cut each out on a little strip. At this point, one fell out of my hands—Fox and Squirrel. I wondered if that meant that I should consider the winner chosen, but I decided to be fair and do it the right way. SO I got a bowl and put all the names inside, closed my eyes, and drew……Fox and Squirrel again!! SO, F&S, the gods seem to have some strong opinion on this trifling matter! The samples are yours, and I will send them out posthaste as soon as you give me your address via email. I hope you like them, since you must have them---it is your destiny, apparently! LOL.

  3. You call your religious beliefs "odd", but are they really? Probably more normal than you think, at least in my opinion. Thanks for sharing!
    Have a good weekend,
    Michael

  4. you're right, Michael, they (my beliefs) are probably most natural and anthropologically consonant. Sometimes I feel like there may be some dissonance between a belief in things like ghosts and 'nature spirits' and a lack of belief in God, but most of the time, it doesn't bother me!

    Here's wishing you a great weekend as well!
