R&R

Daily Draw: Legend Arthruian Tarot ~ 4 of Swords

A convoluted story of Tristran and Isolt with heaps of treachery and deception all around.

Lives lived like this are probably how R&R and Executive Time got started.

Liberties

Daily Draw: Legend Arthurian Tarot ~ Queen of Swords

After reading up on Morgause I was sorry I pulled the card. An unpleasant wife, mother, queen. But if I took the woman out of it and read her actions as a man and part of Arthur's court, then it is all business as usual.

Why do we allow men liberties and condemn women for the same behavior?

Go With It

Daily Draw: Legend Arthurian Tarot ~ 8 of Wands/Spears

A rush of enthusiasm, occasionally known as 'getting carried away'.
This card has my number.

I completely cop to often being carried away with some idea or project. It is an excited feeling, being in that grip. Awake and aware, brain pretty much in gear.

And I do have my three week rule, where I don't gut the house or sell a vehicle or paint myself red until three weeks have gone by. A little safeguard that pays for itself every time I use it.

Flea In A Hot Skillet

Daily Draw: Legend the Arthurian Tarot ~ Hermit

Lancelot flees the turmoil of court life. I don't blame him, you couldn't pay me enough to have that constant hubbub and one-upping and fawning, and the begging for favors as constants.

I get why those who thrive on it do so...it must be like a action movie, always someone else's new firespot to extinguish, and old fire that needs kindling, a personal fire to fan to flames, and no quiet time in which to reflect or own.

Perspective

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ 8 of Swords/Feathers

A change in perspective, intentional or not. We went to a big RV show yesterday. Having spent a couple of months in our 5th wheel this year, we thought it would be fun to see the show with experienced eyes.

We liked the new microwave/convection oven combo. We thought king size beds were a waste of good getting around space. Our lavatory sink is bigger than some in high end massive beasts. There are better made entrance stairs. Many of the couches had massagers, which were disquieting, uncomfortable, and noisy with a bass reverb sound. Not enough plug-ins across all brands.

We talked to couples who were seriously shopping for the first time, perhaps shared new perspectives they hadn't considered. All in all a fun date. And we love our own rig best and look forward to next week and another run with it.

My Dogs Are Barkin'

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ 2 of Coins

Feet. I'm guessing the first material thing my feet touched was black ink then were pressed against the paper birth certificate. I think those feet certificates stopped being used a long time ago. I wonder if our toe prints mirror our fingerprints?

Our feet become working partners . Part of the whole unit. This week I'm walking behind the mower, followed by Rob walking behind with weed and feed spreader.

I can't believe until a few days ago I didn't recognize I embrace walking as a hobby. Because feet are so utilitarian I gave the fun of them a mental miss. Last night my dogs were barkin'. In colloquial english that means my feet were sore. I'm going to have fun with my partners today. Life is good.

Owning Thoughts And Actions

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ 7 of Swords/Feathers

Those loops. Why me, I'm so mad, it should have been mine, can't afford it, can't go there, so rude, why me, where is he, mean girls, why me why me why me, why not me.

The older I get the more I've acknowledged being an adult is just a kid in bigger clothes with more expensive toys. Having a child mind stays with us until the end. It is the mind we learned to think with, why wouldn't it always have a say?

The good news is the adult mind has a strong voice, and perhaps the two arguing it out gives us that clear concept of what thoughts and actions we own. Laying blame on the child mind serves no purpose at all.

Compadres

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ 2 of Wands/Flames

Siamese twins? No...more like meeting someone like-minded. And with that base, introduce each other to facets we hadn't considered before. That potential spouse, friend, mentor, even enemy.

I'm reminded by this card of my compadres on the sidebar. We met via the cards and formed a unlikely friendship that probably wouldn't have happened otherwise. They both make me rise above my base. I appreciate that.

Gimpy Magic

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ Magician/Magic

We live in a world stuffed with magic. Its true name is brain.

Magic so far today, at 5:23
Scan, name, post. Amazing, three different machines communicating along with Google. Four actually because I'm gimping along with a usb keyboard on my laptop.

For the fourth time in fourteen days I've tried to buy a refurbished gen5 ipad at ATT. That equals about one hundred screens, only to have the purchase rejected after completion. Amazing magic...

Falala, I don't care and when I'm over being mad, I'll just do it again. I'm retired, I have several hours, I will win. With my magic combo of brainy bits.

Buffet

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ Star

Nourishment from a place of self awareness.

I often find myself avoiding this buffet.  Not worthy. Late for the show. Who needs it. Falala I'm too busy. Can't be bothered. Not waiting on hold for nebulous results. Who is the moke running the show?
