Updates: life, work, dogs and a new logo

As we inch closer toward the end of October, I’m beginning to see a few gaps in my calendar. Gaps meaning nothing family related is scheduled and I will actually have some time to catch up on my own projects!

It’s a mixed bag of sentimentalism, this fall-merging-into-winter time here in our south-eastern corner of Canada. Back to school and hockey/ringette season is hectic, peppered with multiple birthdays and Thanksgiving thrown in the middle of it. But the excessive scheduling is coming to an end. Cycles are closing out, and new ones are on the horizon, ready to start spinning. Kids are moving through high school at an alarming speed.

The re-gift: a hypothetical scenario

Say, hypothetically, you’re dating a cop. Say you’re both middle-aged, meaning, you both have life experience and exes.

Say this cop works a beat in a brothel area. His job is to keep an eye on the hookers, and he gets to know some of them. He knows some of them are mothers.

Say this cop is a good man, and the prostitutes like him, even trust him.

The Social Minimalist, loneliness and writing in a room with a door

The other day I was in the car inching toward downtown Toronto in high traffic. To help pass the time, I listened to a youtube podcast by a guy whose name is Einzelgänger.

Typically, he quotes ancient philosophers rather than celebrities, but yesterday he quoted Robin Williams, who, if you recall, committed suicide some time ago which plunged the collective fan base into a state of surprise and shock. How could such a celebrated actor take his own life? A comedy actor, no less, who evolved into other, more serious roles after making his fans laugh as Mork?

The quote from Robin I’m referring to touches on a topic which became much weightier during the long years of lockdown at the height of the pandemic: loneliness.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.

Adventures in running online business streams, lessons learned, and a bit about social media

Running businesses online is a difficult endeavor simply because there are so many inter-related avenues.

I wonder sometimes how any of this can sustain long term without mental or emotional breakdown (or exhaustion).

But I learned a few things over the past year and, most recently, the past few months. Allow me to share my insights. What follows is a lengthy monologue. You have been warned. 😛

Timeless Tarot extended reading by Claudette Tarot Intuitive

I did a spread the other day which I read into a TikTok as a short clip with just a little text and some funky music in the background, but something about these cards I was dealt made me do a deeper analysis.

I decided to play around with WordPress’s file upload. I have no idea how this will work out which is where you come in.

If you liked my Tarot Tuesdays, here is a chance to see more of my tarot readings.

Waiting (and waiting and waiting)

I spent a big part of my day waiting for several things, most recently a phone call from either the girl child or her dad. I was advised earlier I might have to go into the city and get her, but it was not confirmed.

So I await further instructions.

Nothing is happening. My phone is silent.
