The man said, "Damned it woman, you can't just stop in the middle of the road like that... you Sensitives gotta be more careful!"
Shocked, I looked into the eyes carried within Sun ragged red skin. "You know?" I queried.
He replied with a shake of his head, "Ain't nobody has a reaction like that without knowin' that they have reactions to things like that! You were standing right on the spot."
With that statement my understanding became solid. I wasn't having a heat stroke. I've crossed that road hundreds of times since a person was shot to death while doing the same thing a while ago now, and I've never gotten more than a bit of anxiety that could be attributed to simply knowing that such a terrible crime occurred underfoot. Today however, according to this man, my feet fell into the exact spot where a person had been killed; boy did my Spidey-senses know it!
"Well thanks a bunch", I said to him, "and I'll do better to step around that part of the road in the future."
"Ya alright now then?" the man asked me. "Good. Get a car." He turned and walked away.
I chuckled, but as I too walked away I got a cold chill... the kind of chill that says you are not alone. The situation lost its humor. I pulled up my wards around me and pocketed any curiousity of a non-living guest following me home. As soon as I did return to my house I promptly smudged thoroughly with sage, sending any lingering spirit back to whence it came. Doing my errands on foot today turned from Eco to EEK-oh; I didn't expect boots on the ground to shift into boos from the ground! LOL! Feet feel psychic energy too as hands do though. I will take more care crossing that road in the future, I'll continue my Eco-friendly habits, but as it so happens... I am in the market for a new car!
