Tarot Supplement – What’s in the cards

Today’s Tarot Supplement title is courtesy of Deb who suggested it in this post. Read about the launch of Tarot Tuesdays here.

As you will find out on the upcoming Tarot Tuesday, I did not study anything about tarot cards prior to choosing some and reading them. I simply dove in and dabbled around the internet to make sense of the cards.

Perspective

Scenario:

A mom takes her five year old child out to a fast food pizza joint. Mom takes the paper plate with the pizza slice and places it on an outdoor table. The child grins at his mom and kneels on the chair in front of the slice. Smiling, he commences to dip his face down on the pizza and licks some of the cheese, maybe even nibbles a bite. Mom sits down beside him and smiles.

Questions about apps: Reddit

I have a question: who uses Reddit regularly? I noticed you can sign in with your google account, so I did. I have only dabbled in reddit occasionally in the past half year or so and find it a little…cluttered? Opinionated without much fact-checking? Trendy? Something like that… I can’t quite describe it accurately. I don’t know if I’m interested enough in using this app as a go-to source. Should I? Or not? Definition Reddit describes itself as the front page of the internet. Wikipedia has a longer, wordier definition and describes reddit as a social news aggregation, web content … Continue reading Questions about apps: Reddit

Lockdown insanity – sorry not sorry

It’s 5:15 pm on Good Friday and I have no plans for making dinner.

I have no plans for making dinner tomorrow either but my mom is feeding us Easter dinner so there’s that to look forward to.

There is nothing else to look forward to in this godforsaken province of endless lockdowns. This time, non-essential retail shall remain open at 15% capacity or something but nothing else. No restaurants. No coffee shops. For all of April.

Earlier today, I was still waiting for my neck brace which was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Did they run out of boxes at Amazon? More likely people…I heard there are more covid outbreaks all over the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

This virus isn’t going away anytime soon, is it…

Clandestine honesty

Those of you who have read here a while know that I’m a little bit…different.

Let’s go with that. 🙃

Here is something about me though that most of you probably will not dispute: I am nothing if not creative.

As I continue to write my stories, and edit my stories, and proofread my stories, and finish my stories, and begin new stories, I realized something.

I need some personal experience to supplement some of my creativity. And this is the reason why I started a bit of an unusual experiment a couple of weeks ago.

Really unusual.

How reading evokes improved writing (for me)

Every so often I read a story by a writer or author which awakens something inside of me. Usually, it begins right with the first sentence, or paragraph. It’s almost like I can hear the voice of this person while reading the words.

One such story is this one: Waking up from the American Dream
