Cloud 9

Tales of a Double Virgo

Episode #24

Cloud 9


‘i was on Cloud 9,’ he said.

i got to thinking.

why 9?

why does the 9th cloud

describe this state of elevation and bliss?


oh, google.

to think

we used to turn to Dewey Decimal!


turns out

Cloud 9

actually refers to theĀ cumulonimbus

which rises 6.2 miles

the highest a cloud can be.

pretty cool.


can you think of a time(s) when you were on

~ Cloud 9 ~

in 2016?

let’s review.


grab your journal or calendar

if you have one


maybe you are one of those peeps

who remembers everything.


sift thru your year

your 2016.

how was it?

did you do anything new

do anyONE new?


did you lose something



or several somethings or someones?

did your world get rocked?

did your system receive a shock

that rewired your entire BEingness?


did you realize something about yourself

that caused you to take action

and make changes?

did you follow a dream?

or a job?

or a lover?


did you take that vacation?

or buy that car?

did you stick to

the resolutions from the end of 2015?


it’s easy to look

with a critical eye

@ all of the things

that are suck-ish


harsh on ourselves to



Cloud 9.

were there any of those?

how many?

if none

when was the last?

do you want more in 2017?

i do.

and dealing with conflict in 2016.

some really cool stuff happened.


now it’s your turn.

flip thru your calendar, journal or brain

month by month


see what stands out.


chances are

some pretty cool stuff happened

in amongst the hard shit.

reflect on this past year.

see where you might want to make some changes.

when did you see or feel yourself shift?

be gentle.

we are all learning

ALL of the time.

celebrate these last few days of 2016.

celebrate YOU
