Angels speak to us in many ways. When something happens to catch our eye and we find ourselves taking a closer look, it's more than likely our angels are giving us a sign. Whenever I travel to a new city, I like to invite the Guardian of the city to be with me. I also welcome the guardian angels of each person living in the city. It's amazing to watch what happens when this is done. I find myself turning up at just the right time and meeting the people I need to meet. While visiting Lake Wales, Florida, Elliot and I were meandering through the historic section when we happened upon an old art alley tucked away from the main street. To our amusement, the art theme seemed to be about moving forward.
Don't look back.
A Course in Miracles teaches, "The past is over and all that is left is a blessing."

The rear-end view of an elephant family was an angel thought to never forget who I am. These magnificent animals represent ancient power, strength, and royalty. Our divine spiritual heritage as a child of God is spiritual; we are not physical but eternal. An elephant never forgets. So as we move forward to greet the future, keep our eyes on the Divine. And remember that all things are possible with God.
Our world is on the move today, populations are shifting and changing, morphing into something different. Out of necessity, many are leaving behind the familiar to start a new life in unfamiliar territory. As we start out on these new adventures, it helps to remember that whatever we do, wherever we may go, the angels are with us, watching and guiding in all of our ways.
As we come to the end of the first month of the new year, it is good to remember not to look back. Choose to move forward with an expectancy of goodness and grace in each moment.
"The past is over.
It can touch me not."
(A Course in Miracles Lesson 289)
