Lizard Tail

I forgot to mention there was a lizard in my hotel room. I don't know what it is with lizards and me.

When we moved to Arizona, we had three weeks to pack and arrive for hubby's job. We bought a house we hadn't seen. One of my cousins checked it out for us, and (once again) things just fell together. I lived here before. My mom used to live in Scottsdale, but for the family this was a first time adventure.

We arrive at the house and start moving things in from where they had been unloaded in the garage. The living room was one of those living-dining room combinations, but the kitchen-family room had plenty of room for a dining room table between the two rooms. So the actual dining room became where the baby grand piano was to go when it arrived. Wouldn't you know, we left the door open and lizard had come in and gone all the way to the music room. There he was about eye level on the wall. We put him out.

There have been a few other times lizards have made attempts to enter via the back door like the last time I mentioned DG.

So here I am in a hotel, one hundred miles from home, and there is a baby lizard (smaller in total length than my index finger) on the wall. He wasn't there at first, and when I came back, he was gone. (By the way, to me all lizards are 'he' like ships are 'she').

I woke Tuesday morning and there the little guy was sitting on my shoe - facing me. I got up, put him in the empty waste basket, dressed and took him outside. I figured there was no food or water for him in the room and the next guest might not be so tolerant of lizards.

One of my English friends asked if maybe lizards were my spirit animal, spirit guide. She suggested I should ask Inez, (a Pueblo Indian) who is a close friend. Asking about spirit guides isn't the kind of thing one just walks up to an Indian and asks about, so the only person I could ask would be Inez. But we know what Inez thinks about creepy-crawly things indoors, right?

My English friend and I are both Star Trek fans. We didn't get the spirit guide idea from scholarly research. The idea came from Star Trek: Voyager. But I don't care if it is real or not, I like mysterious things with a positive twist to them. So, I'm going to say that this is a good omen. That things will work out as they should.


  1. Cool! Check this out, - it says the lizard is 'letting go, elusiveness'. On another site I found this: "A powerful totem to have, lizard reveals your weaknesses, your strengths and prompts the energy of change.
    The lizard is very sensitive to ground vibrations, they have keen eyesight and superior hearing. Those who feel the spirit of the lizard can learn ways to use their enhanced sensory perceptions to connect with their deeper psychic and spiritual awareness."

    That looks like a good omen to me.

  2. Oooh, Nadine, what a magical connection! I hope these little lizard creatures bring you everything that you wish for. x

  3. Thank you, Carol Anne,

    Isn't this lizard thing wild? I am totally not an outdoors type. When the little guy jumped from my shoe into the waste can, I jumped too. (What a sissy.) I do like dogs and cats as pets, rode horses bareback as a kid, so I'm not anti-animal.

    But this animal attraction to me is strange. When I was small, it was hummingbirds. As a teen, it was eagles. Then it was crickets for a while ... glad that passed because I'd jump when they did as I tried to catch them and put them out. Now it seems to be lizards. I guess I should be glad that it hasn't ever been bears!

    I like Prescott. The interview went well. I liked them. In a couple of weeks I'll know what they thought of me. I've had good wishes emails from all over the world, so thank you everyone for sending your love. Big hugs!
