Okay, I did it again. I tossed rose petals on my front walk (the roses were left from the Literary Ladies book club I met with last Saturday) last week to welcome the ancestors (& bring good luck). This week I got a great contract gig, an offer to blog on another site (for $!) and a request to teach a writing workshop next month. Last year when I did it, I got an unexpected check in the mail.
Strewing flowers to welcome the ancestors is something I got from Stephanie Rose Bird and is something one of the characters in Children of the Waters does.
Try it y'all! Worse case scenario: you'll have a pretty walk. Best case: good luck!
