Divining at Breakfast

We had a really fun and interesting breakfast a few days ago.  We had the opportunity to watch one of our guests use a V shaped tree branch in the dining room to find water.  She walked around with the divining rod, which she broke off the cherry tree in the back yard.

It was an amazing happening!  She has promised to write something for Bettina’s Blog on water divining – if I am calling it the right thing – so you can all share in the process.
We thought her divining rod would point to the Charles River.  Instead it led her to the front door and pointed definitely down just before getting to the door.  We didn’t understand why this divining rod would point to water at the front door until someone realized that water comes into the house exactly under the spot where the divining rod turned down.
I tried it, but it didn’t work for me –  I have been practicing since and hope to get this perfected in the not too distant future.  In the meantime, the old lady you see walking around with a v- shaped tree branch, followed by a trail of squirrels – that will be me!
