If you've followed my column for a while, you know that I often grab pizza at one of those places that offers a “hot and ready” pie at a reasonable price. I love going there because it's one of the most fascinating places on the planet. I call it “The Pizza Theater,” because I see things so bizarre that it's hard to imagine them as anything but some sort of mystery play.
This week, I went to pick up dinner. The place wasn't busy; no theatre today. I didn't mind though, because it's fun to just sit, think and relax. Anyway, I put in my order and had a seat.
All the employees were young men. The fellow who waited on me, a boy with long blond hair tied in a ponytail, was busy darting hither and thither, preparing for more business. A radio blared an FM rock station. Only one track of the stereo channel worked, so they'd pushed up the volume. The rest of the crew, about 5 of them, were making pizzas and keeping busy.
As I sat, vegging in my usual spot, the opening bars of one of my favorite songs by “The Who,” began. The song is called, "Behind Blue Eyes." For those of you who don't know it, it's a cryptic ballad that reflected the feeling of the time, although its meaning didn't become apparent to me until a few years ago. Those of us of a certain age and temperament remember it fondly.
As I'm now a geezer, and as I was the only person in the place other than the employees, I sang along with Roger Daltrey, The Who's lead singer. I didn't worry about being too loud or too obnoxious, I just sang. I then noticed that I wasn't singing alone. I looked up and to my surprise, the young man with blond hair also was singing, although much more quietly than I was. He looked at me with surprise, as I probably looked at him with surprise. He stopped singing for a second, then started again.
About this time, a couple came in to buy a few pizzas. I kept singing. They looked at me, nervously bought, paid and scrammed.
As the song moved to a particularly intense part, I belted it out, as did the fellow behind the counter, as did all the guys in the back!
What amazed me the most was that they knew the song at all. It's over 40 years old, but these “kids” didn't miss a word.
The ballad ended and the employees all laughed and applauded.
I asked the young man behind the counter how old he was. He told me he was 17. I thought for a moment, felt a wave of shock move through me, and then told him that I was his age when the song was released. He stared at me for a long time, took in whatever he was seeing in me and whispered, "wow."
I then informed him that when the song had come out, I'd also worked in fast food, but at a Jack-in-the-Box and that I'd had to shove my long hair underneath my hat.
By this time, all the workers had come to the front and were listening to our conversation. They began quizzing me about the meaning of the song, what it was like to have been in fast food in the early 70s, and what the world had been like back then. I felt as if I'd been a pioneer in a tradition of noxious nutrition that they were proud to carry on.
We talked about music, working summer nights in a hot kitchen and how cool 1971 was. I have to admit, it was pretty cool.
My pizza was ready. One of the fellows sliced it, boxed it and brought it up. I extended my hand to take it, but instead of giving me the box, he shook my hand. Another young man came up and shook my hand as well.
In that moment, I looked at them and realized that we were the same, only in a different period. We stood on opposite ends of a rainbow of time. The majority of their lives lie ahead of them, while most of mine is behind me.
I know these boys. I saw myself standing with them, 17 years old, peach-fuzz growing on my face, hair tucked underneath my paper hat, greasy clothes and a big, innocent grin on my face.
Little did I know the journey that awaited me. Little can they know where their lives will take them.
In that instant, I wished them happy, peaceful lives and unbounded joy. I prayed they'd find wonderful blessings, like those I've been lucky enough to receive. I wished them the tenacity to discover their true path and to have the courage to follow it with confidence and success. Most of all, more than anything else, I wished them lives filled with love.
I marvel at time and how quickly it moves.
I left my new friends with a wave, a pizza and a happy heart.
Even though they forgot the pepperoni, it turned out to be one of the best pizzas I've had in a long, long time.

Wow, what a week! No less than 4 of my clients and two close friends announced in the past week or so that they are getting a divorce. In every case it is a good thing, relationships that have fizzled out over time and thanks to Mercury's tremendous power of introspection they were able to admit that things just don't fit anymore. This avalanche of change is amazing and freeing and gets me thinking about the energetic dynamics of relationships.
When someone asks me if a relationship is going to work the first thing I look for is an energetic match between the two people. This match occurs in the Heart Chakra and essentially means that the two energy bodies vibrate at the same rate. When you are an energetic match with someone you feel a sense of familiarity when you meet them. For example, when you meet someone for the first time but feel as though you have met before, this is an indication of an energetic match. This familiarity turns into attraction, reminding you over and over that your energy bodies vibrate at the same rate. It is a magnetic feeling, drawing you closer and closer to the other person.
Our energetic vibration is not fixed. As we learn and grow so does our vibration. Sometimes two people who started out as a match in the beginning of their relationship will grow in different directions. Over time their vibration will grow further and further apart. This can cause an end to the relationship or it can cause a crisis in the relationship where the two people choose to come back together. This can occur over and over again. Vibration is not the only factor in the success of a relationship, but it is an indicator of the health of a relationship.
When you are an energetic match with your partner you work together as a team, your energy blending together into one united front. The farther apart your vibrations become the more you will fight against one another. If your relationship is struggling, reach out from your heart to your partner's heart and see what you feel. Does the energy flow together, or does it push back like magnets pointed the wrong way? You can repair energetic discord and return to a match with some work and intention.
Physical closeness is key to maintaining an energetic match. Daily physical contact is very important. Remember to hug and kiss and hold hands. This causes entrainment (or alignment) in the Heart Chakra.
Be intentionally supportive of the other person's choices and opinions. Pay attention to patterns of behavior in yourself. Do you tend to disagree most of the time with your partner? Has this become a habit that you perpetuate without thinking? Consciously choose your responses, aligning yourself with them.
Choose a project, cause, or job to do together. Be intentional about uniting as one to complete something together. As you work side by side your energy will begin to match up, repairing the discord.
Spend time with couples who have healthy energetic matches. When it comes to energy, "like attracts like." Give yourself good examples of how you want your relationship to be.
Remember that in some cases the discord cannot be repaired and it is better for both of you to move on. This is a healthy move for both people and creates a sense of freedom and relief. It is OK to feel good about leaving a relationship that is no longer an energetic match for you.
As Mercury turns direct I hope your time of introspection was fruitful and now you are ready to act upon your new found sense of yourself! Oh we are complicated and wonderful animals!
