Trying to read the tea leaves of the universe ...  and seeing them all pointed towards your current writing project.     Okay...the analogy isn't quite exact.  And I do feel the universe is trying to gently show us a few currents that might be the best way to go.   (It's comforting to feel that way and heaven knows we all need a bit of comfort.)
    But it can be deadly in crafting a story.  Adding things that don't belong just because you stumble upon them.  Stopping much too soon instead of doing the hard work needed to get to the precious underlying areas where the story really lies.
    Today may I be open to the tea leaves of the universe ... but not ruled by them.   The quest for a good story deserves that. And so much more.
