A Little Club

Daily Draw: Tao Oracle ~ Hexagram 33 Retreat

Time for disengagement, in stillness you are out of the reach of danger. Brian Brown Walker Book of Changes

I talked to my little brother yesterday, the first time since his very nearly successful suicide attempt. I shared a few of my own ideas from my mini-hobby of thinking up ways to do it. Got a laugh, always good.

I'm reminded by this card those outside can't see in and those inside see no way out.


  1. May he find some thread of light to lead him out of the darkness.

  2. Is that the sun rising or setting? Reminds me one day at a time, baby steps. If you can raise a laugh that's a bonus. Hugs.

  3. Not sure if my comment went through - my screen froze. If not hugs to you and your brother. Laughter (even or especially dark humour) a light in the darkness.

  4. rising or setting, we'll get another pair tomorrow. Lovely to see you

  5. Laughing is the best medicine for you both
    Gentle hug

  6. Thinking of you and your brother. My wish for him is to be able to find a safer and more contented path through life.

  7. Retreat, some times we need to step away to find ourselves or replenish ourselves. You and Rob had a very good retreat when you took yourselves across country. May you brother find ways to replenish his life. Glad to hear you had some time in conversation with your brother. Hugs to you both.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
