For many years now, All-that-is has spoken to me through junk mail.

Unsolicited Teacher Resource magazines, Field and Stream and Essence have thudded their way into my mail box with my name etched onto a glued piece of paper. As each arrived, I had the same response, "Huh?"

Initially I was dumbfounded. I'd ask, "What do I need Field and Stream for? I don't hunt."

When I received the first magazine, I knew it was a sign. But the future it suggested had no ties to my present. So I noted the future poking its head into my present and let it rest.

As each new magazine presented itself, I was intrigued. These random, slightly absurd calling cards from She-who-cannot-be-named had my current address printed on the front page in tidy letters. How did she know I moved from Maryland to California to Cape Cod?

The Absolute Truth had sent me a Teacher's Resource Magazine as the first informal glossy.

Three years later, I was a teacher, struggling to teach 8-year-olds the finer points of theatre at a summer program in Alaska.

One fresh morning the children were hiding in the science cabinets and trash cans when I came in from the staff meeting. We had a good laugh until I could not talk one particular stubborn child out of the trash can.

I pulled the can up to the circle and the oh-so-stubborn-one did her morning warm-ups in there, until she fell over as she stretched.

Her tumbling set me off on a 17-year series of teaching jobs. I taught all ages, but it was the youngest of my students that I learned the most from.

I had been gently led back into my childhood, as a teacher. I had to reclaim my inner and abandoned girl child who had forgotten how to play and hide from others. I needed to learn it was okay to make a mistake.

And God sent me the sign through junk mail.

I never did question the Cosmic Controller, or ask "Why not O, The Oprah Magazine or The Sun?" I assumed she was decisive in her choices.

As the supplements wound up in my post, if I was feeling stuck, I accepted my junk mail with a sense of curious dread, "Now what? Which direction am I supposed to head in, that I am obviously missing?"

If I was feeling the internal movement of my life, I would intuit, "another directional love note."

The installments I received were spiritual hellos about my path. Hello Michelle, this is coming. Michelle, you might enjoy this, Hello. And Hello, you have some answers in this direction.

I knew I would decipher her messages and enjoy my future as it landed in my lap.
