How many of you played “Mother, May I?” when you were growing up? That was a playground staple, along with Red Rover, Statues, and Simon Say. And Dodge Ball. Dodge Ball probably has more to do with today’s advice from the Universe, because I’m always dodging those hard decisions, skipping away from taking those final steps, and looking for permission from someone else…or from my inner critic, fraidy cat, Iffy, and the world. Oh, yeah. And quite often, the Universe.
If you keep asking “May I?” Silver, I’ll keep asking “Will you?”
It’s never been up to me.

Now, if you’re nodding, winking, or chirping, “Yeah,” Silver, then just go do it and give thanks in advance for my cleverness. Oh, you so chirp.
The time comes, as the Walrus reminds us, to talk of many things. But the Universe is telling us to get off our @$$es and just do it. What are you going to do today that you’ve been putting off while waiting for permission?
And yeah, that’s one of my favorite quotes:
“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”
~The Walrus and the Carpenter, Lewis Carroll
