This looks more like it
Flying over the Sea of Cortez at last! The visibility is extraordinary, and we can pick out all sorts of landmarks: San Carlos and the Tetas de Cabra, Isla Carmen, Loreto, La Paz. We are thrilled, and hop from side to side in the plane, to see what we can see.
I crack open my fortune cookie from the Chinese restaurant where we ate yesterday and draw out two fortunes:
Now is a good time for you to explore. Take a vacation.
A bold and dashing adventure is in your future within the year.
Marike laughs at me when I tape these messages into my journal. You like those fortunes, she says.
Of course, I say; they tell me what I've already decided to do, so I like them!
She laughs and tells me to write all of this down, so I do.
Marike's fortune isn't nearly so interesting:
Tomorrow will be a productive day. Don't oversleep.
But maybe they all amount to the same thing.
