If you like “Weird”, you might have enjoyed the article I saw yesterday (in the local paper’s Travel section) about Sedona’s famous vortexes. Those places that supposedly exist around Sedona where your soul can be healed, rejuvenated, and literally made to glow.
If you don’t know, a vortex (in Sedona, at least) is a place where invisible, swirling energy radiates from the earth and “heals” those who are smart enough to stand in its path. That would be a good thing, I suppose, but so far there’s no hard scientific evidence that they exist. Not that that has stopped lots of people from coming to Sedona to reap the benefits of these things. Or to visit those New Age merchants who’d like to sell you a piece. People come and they spend. And maybe when they leave, they feel “healed”. If that’s true, I’m happy for them.
As for me, it’s just the place. I like the area. But I can do without the vortexes. I’ve seen them, but haven’t noticed any special glows or energy fields. Maybe it’s because I’m a non-believer. Maybe they don’t work unless you “truly” believe.
Just a quick word about the photograph: this street sign might be the only thing that’s bent or out of place in all of Sedona. Most everything else is perfectly aligned or placed. The residents seem to like things neat there. But somebody managed to bend this thing.
I’ll bet, though, that it’s fixed by now. Cinnabar Drive is one of those roads you can’t go down unless you know how to open a very large gate. Lots of nice houses down that road. I doubt those folks appreciated the bent sign. Some poor repair guy – probably an illegal immigrant – was likely there the next morning.
