Phone Work

 Tao Oracle ~ Obstacles

Aren't they fun? To look back on. After we've survived, buried, ignored into invisibility, or actually surmounted. At my age if there is an obstacle, it needs to be dealt with. 

I've already had and vanquished four this year, the worst part of dealing with them required talking on the phone. Which is an obstacle In Process; I doubt I ever get over the panic symptoms, but I can stop nurturing them with avoidance, and force myself to get on with it. 

Could be worse, I could have a fear of doorknobs or refrigerators or lawns. Makes phone work look easy peasy.

Three Totes

 Tao Oracle ~ Decrease

A dark card, but all the keywords can be teaching moments because less can be more.

I'm thinking today about mother's photo collection. To give her credit she had many wonderful family and vacation albums, people and places identified and dated. But also 3 large totes of loose photographs came to me, maybe 1% identified. I felt burdened and guilty, knowing they were precious to her, and not knowing how to honor that. 

In the end I shipped shoeboxes of them to cousins hoping they could identify a few for their own pleasure. No one ever said if they did. The rest eventually met fire, the way I let go of things that simply serve no purpose but soul weight. I can't pull the wagon of someone else's stuff.

Make Me Think

 Tao Oracle ~ Contemplation

Ever see images of people contemplating the sun? I have at least ten collage cards about the moon specifically, only one featuring a sun. I don't get up and walk outside to contemplate the sun, but I get up in the night to view the moon. Without a moon the oceans would still and developers would fall on the newly freed view property. Without the sun we'd all die. 

Which do I suppose I value more? The one that makes me think.

 Tao Oracle ~ Excess

Although in a good mood, I've been feeling a bit like this lately. I seem to be taking quick looks over my shoulder for what the hell is it that is weighing me down...the tarot 10's are like this, even the ten of coins indicates there can be too much of a good thing. 

I've cut back on blogging even althoough wordsmithing is one of my pleasures. I've cut back on tea, mainly because I don't care for the last box I bought. I could throw it out but not without a replacement. I have Irish Breakfast at my side right now, Rob likes it, I'm not a fan. My elder doggies continue to age, hard to watch, hard to choose when to let them go. Part of responsible pet ownership. I don't want to be responsible. 

Little things I guess that add up to carrying the rocks. Mother would say I have the doldrums. She'd probably be right, I'm the luckiest girl in the world and I do know that.
