London Bridge

Angie Hope, Journey, London

Dear Universe, The other day I woke up to an email from a good friend.  While she always sends uplifting and humorous messages to me, this one had an unexpected line thrown in. She said, “I feel you’re at the bank of the river plotting how to cross it. I have total faith…” I sat back touched, but also amazed.  …

Paris, Je t’aime

Angie Fun, Gratitude, Paris, Peace

Dear Universe, About six months ago I purchased a little notebook, one small enough to carry in my purse.  On the cover of it is a graphic of the Eiffel Tower surrounded by a pink heart and the sparkly words, “Paris, Je t’aime.”  As I paid for it, a vision popped into my head—me in Paris with that notebook in …

Dear Universe, Thank you for making me feel like a kid again. Last night (New Year’s Day) I ended up in Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland.  I can’t remember the last time I went to a fair or carnival.

Angie London, Music

Dear Universe, Last night I had the opportunity to attend Ghost, The Musical. It was A-MAZ-ING!  It may be my favorite show yet.  The music was moving and the cast was phenomenal.  I especially thought Richard Fleeshman, who plays Sam, was Out. Of. This. World. 😉  He blew me away in every scene.  And, Sharon D Clarke, who plays psychic …

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

Angie London, Signs, Time Traveling

Dear Universe, I always ask for signs and I believe I receive them.  But ever since I got to London I feel like signs are being delivered at full force.  Street signs, billboards and advertisements seem to be shouting messages right at me. I’ve been having so much fun noticing them.  Here’s a list of just the ones I saw …
