Fast forward exactly one year later. I arrive at BM Sunday morning with Bhavani after the burn. Our first mission is to see the temple so we immediately walk in that direction. As I arrive, one of the first people I gaze eyes with is Lauren HaHa. She is in a deep space and about to go into meditation as she aligns certain items and crystals around her. As we acknowledge one another, my eyes are drawn to some photos up on the Temple. “Wait a minute, it can’t be – the images look so familiar.” Over the year I never heard back from “Wanderer” and I even found him on Tribe, yet he never replied. These pictures looked just like the ones on his page. I step away for a moment and ask, “Ok Wanderer, if this is really you, show me a sign right now” Almost instantly, a big block from the top of the structure flew and landed on the ground almost hitting a couple that was taking a nap. I step back and ask for another sign while I see JacobEye and tell him the story of this man. I am just looking for confirmation that this is truly Wanderer. JacobEye points to one of the photos that is written on with a marker saying, “To Jeff “The Wanderer”. RIP 12/28/07. Turns out he passed later that year and probably one of the reasons why I never heard back from him.
At this point, I immediately shift gears to a new mission, get a printed picture of Wanderer with the Rainbow over his head up on the Temple before they burn it tonight. I quickly head back to Entheon to see what resources are available. I have to hurry as they close the Temple down by noon to prepare for the evening. I try Forest’s RV where they have a color printer, however the power is not working. I jump over in the Myth Maker bus and yet I don’t have the drivers for the printer. Luckily there is wireless internet so I can download what I need. After a couple of hours trying, nothing is working. I ask myself, “Why is this so difficult?” I keep trying and for whatever reason I plug my camera into my laptop and the memory card gets fried. Now the camera doesn’t work or even turn on. I am completely frustrated and go outside for some air. I share some of the story with friends and then have this sense of, “I failed my mission.” My good friend Enaly stops by and reminds me that sometimes our mission isn’t supposed to happen the way we envision it. As she said these words, a new vision came to me. I was going to put the entire camera along with the memory card that captured those shots of him into the fire. I have been wanting to get a newer camera anyway and this would be the perfect gift for Wanderer and a representation of me letting go.
I released the camera to Spirit and all the beautiful memories we shared that day with the Triple Rainbow. I Love You Wanderer and thank you for coming into my life at one of the most powerful times.
I am finally writing this after I just bought a new camera and beginning a new part of the journey. May you continue to fly with the Angels and bring Rainbows where ever you go.
Your BM Rainbow Bro, Osiris
