SIGNS?

That's a sign!  Is it?  Are we given signs from time to time?  I think so.  People used to tell me that most things were a sign, maybe, I don't know, how would they know?  Then when you ask them what it meant, they have no clue.  Everybody seems to talk a good game but when it comes right down to actually living it, well that's another story.  Or, here's another one, "Everything happens for a reason."  If I had a buck everytime I heard that, well I'd have a lot of bucks.  Well then, why does it happen?  "Don't know, it just happens and I believe that."  Have you bothered to explore as to why?  Probably not.  And that's all you get if you don't take the next step.

In 2007 I came home from work one summer day and on the railroad tracks was a bald eagle, some 20 feet from my truck, and he was just staring towards my house some 70 yards away.  One, what was I thinking when I bought a house this close to the tracks?  Two, what is a bald eagle doing sitting on the tracks and what's so facinating about my house?  I rolled down my window.  "Hey buddy, how you doing."  Nothing.  I finally made a noise similar to one my mother would make when she was communicating with animals and the eagle turned his head slowly towards me (instead of flying off) and gave me a disparaging glare and then proceeded to turn his glance back towards my house.  Now, is that a sign?  And why didn't he fly off?  In my opinion the eagle was an animal guide that was pointing out a few things in my life, this made more sense when I read from the book Animal Speak.

On another note, if you're sitting around a fire anytime soon, if you get a chance throw in some tobacco and say a prayer for Bruce the Firekeeper, thank you, I send him my love and light as well.
