Good Fortune or Bad?

I found a fortune on the floor beside my desk tonight that said,

“You need not worry about your future.”

Do you think that’s good news or bad news?


(This actually really happened. It just showed up. I have no idea where it came from.)

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I agree with forgottenman: I could make up hair-raising stories about HOW it got there, or who planted it there for you to find…but the advice itself sounds like a remake Jesus’ words to the crowd: “Take no thought for tomorrow…sufficient unto the day is the care thereof.” (You’ve enough to worry about for today.)

      Had coffee with my friend Brad and he admitted it had been his fortune when we opened fortune cookies at my house over a month ago. We’d been making his retablo and he considered putting it into it but didn’t so it somehow materialized the other day. He made a five foot hight retablo, Judy!! It took us a loooong time..
