My wonderful corn snake Artemis is playing favorites these days. I noticed about a year ago that when my friend Mary was coming over, Artemis would spend the day poking her head out of her cave or her hammock, looking around, waiting for her playmate. On Reiki Healing Circle days, she’d be out early in the morning, expectant, though Circle doesn’t start until 7.
A couple of months ago, she didn’t pop out on a Healing Circle Sunday, even though Mary had said she was coming. So I assumed Mary wasn’t going to be there, even though she had said a couple of times that she would be. And so it came to pass – Mary had made another plan, which I didn’t know about, and didn’t show up. Artemis knew, though, early in the day.
Now, friend Sandy has moved back to town. And Artemis has adopted her as well. When Sandy was coming for a reading, Artemis was restless, and making sure she caught my attention. So when Sandy arrived, I introduced them to each other. Now Artemis has 2 favorites. One smart snake, who is certainly a good energy reader.
