Orange Clogs

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ 2 of Wands

Blueberries or peaches? Orange or lime case? Llewellyn or 5¢ deck? Dog Mom or Missouri Star coffee mug? Go get the mail or not? So many choices. Yesterday I was dressed like a five year old getting herself ready for school. Turquoise shirt, orange clogs, black jeans, pink socks. Was I bothered? Only to laugh. 

But all choices, all made on some level of my mind. Likely busy work obscuring the underlying choices I may need to make shortly. What? Me worried? Never think it. Dadgummed 2s...

Heartless

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ 5 of Cups 

Hankering for what is not rather than savoring what is. A 'Poor Pitiful Pearl' interlude. I made a collage card for this part of me, all alone in a crowd...this morning I looked up the term and it was a doll from 1957. 

A percourser to the Pound Puppy and Cabbage Patch Dolls I suppose. Marketing that pulls on the heart strings. $$$$. I expect there are a lot of toy maker moguls feeling like this as their holiday product is stuck on container ships, out of the hands of witless sheeple. Thinking about all that artificial heartache has cheered me right up! Take that you heartless 5 of Cups

Jan Hatt

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ 3 of Swords

I spent a long time last night with a friend who has been gone some years now. Dreaming of course. There was a little party with fun snacks and lively company. 

And it was so good to sit with Jan; she was nearly 30 years my senior, someone I can say was a true mentor in how to Live Life. Get on with it. I finally quit researching computers and bought one in 1996, because she did. If Jan at 86 can figure it out so can I!

There are two sides to these three swords, loss and memory. Today I'll remember.

She Sits And Sews

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ 3 of Coins

My favorite card of all time, look at the size of that tankard of tea, she will be here for awhile with good light and a sufficiency of thread. She has a foot planted on her coin though, she knows real life and duties will intrude; it makes the respite all the sweeter, because it takes a balanced life to make a good life.

I had a four day personal retreat camping on the Columbia River before I came back here to the real world, it was wonderful. I spent three days journaling with my committee SoulCollage cards and one day sewing nothing but halloweenie fabrics. Very zen, very 3 of coins, to phoenix my spirit ever so often.

Insidious Or Deliberate

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ 9 of Cups 

When is enough too much? Why do we pretend enough when it isn't? In my season of self-therapy this year I ran across this, I wish I'd noted the author.

"Addiction  is a coping mechanism. When parts get out of balance addiction of any sort can leak in, insidiously or deliberately."

I can think back and see this happening so clearly over the years; My own closed doors are deliberate, with malice aforethought. Is it an addiction?

Fuller's

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ Knight of Wands

Like our Knight we are up for adventure,  particularly when there is a mission involved. To Dilly Dally and fart around can be safely left to the Pages. And governments. 

The last time we ate in a restaurant was February 27, 2020, don't miss it. But the last time we had Fuller's cake donuts? Ages ago. The Best, crispy on the outside, good the next day and the day after that. Worth the trip? We are steeding up, masks draped on the tip of our lances, and we are goin' in. 7 AM, when the doors open.

$526,342, 907.82

 Llewellyn Tarot ~ King of Coins

For a few minutes this week I was. King of all Coins. I bought a few shares of stock, and when adding them to my quick check page I did not put the decimal in for the new total  of 25.72765 shares. When I checked the total I suddenly had $526,342,907.82 US dollars in my account. I think that might have made me the richest person in Kalama. 

Weirdly enough I had no urge to be unfaithful or go to the moon. I was still just me. Which is enough, even too much for some folk...
