“Don’t be too quick to interpret the moment. Just keep quiet. My encouragement would always be: never think anything is against you, everything is blessing. Why should it be different? Just be quiet. Let it all work itself out.” ~ Mooji

Stacy recently discovered the Japanese good fortune figurine Maneki-neko, translated as ‘beckoning cat.’ She was so enamored with hers that she gave me one, too. He’s solar powered which makes his little paw wave. He’s adorable. I took Maneki-neko to work today, and perhaps there is something to the folktale of Maneki-neko bringing good fortune. I’d only had him sitting on my shelf an hour when I got a phone call ordering photos. That might seem like a little thing, but for me, anytime someone likes my photos I feel lucky, but when they actually want to sell them for their gallery? That’s a big deal for me and I’m eternally grateful. Thank you, Stacy, for Maneki-Neko and his good fortune. Mission accomplished.
