So I haven’t really ever been there.
I’ve talked a lot about how I’m not much for Traveling, have difficulty going into trance, and am frankly scared to death of taking a walkabout once I get there.
So this is less about going to visit the Otherworld and more about having the Otherworld come and visit me.
Or, more accurately, visit my wife.
Someone In Particular has been making overtures for some time. They’re very much of the sort that say “Stay tuned. I’m not calling on you yet, but I will”.
This scares the shit out of me, if only because I keep hearing from all the Deity-Relations people that things like jobs and kids and spouses just sort of go *poof* when a given deity starts getting impatient.
Granted “impatient” isn’t really a problem at this time, so maybe I should just chill out?
Basically, I’m scared to death that my marriage and my service-relationship are going to under-go big Big Changes and, because I don’t know what to expect, that’s really scary. I also don’t know if I get to stay part of her life, and that’s also really scary. She’s mine. But I need her as much as she needs me.
It’s not that I’m surprised there’s an interest being taken. There are patterns in her life and skills that she’s always had that make this more of a “when” than an “if”. But it’s still frightening.
