Tarot supplement – The Emperor and the Devil

Yesterday, I had an hour of quiet privacy, so I recorded this YouTube video on my new channel to introduce the cards I chose a few days prior, which I analyzed in more wordy (!) detail in this post.

Side note: I’m trying to figure out how things work on youtube, so if you’d like to subscribe, you’d be doing me a favour. Just make sure you subscribe the channel linked above; I have another similar channel which I am trying to get rid of – sorry for the confusion. The clip above is just over 5 minutes long (short). 😉

Tarot cards analysis

On May 20 I chose the following cards during my semi-daily reading:

I was a little shocked at these cards. Why?

Because they’re all Major Arcanas.

Women’s bodies, sexuality and the stigma of menstruation

Disclaimer: this is a straight-forward, blunt, personal perspective about women and periods. If you’re squeamish about these things I encourage you to get over it and read it anyway. Looking forward to respectful and thoughtful, contributing comments. Let’s talk about this and take away the stigma of menstruation.

***

Ladies, do you remember the circumstances of your first period?

What about you men, do you remember when your sisters started…? Or your daughters?

I don’t remember much, other than the usual sentiments of discomfort, anxiety about leaks, and how unfair it was to have to go through this crap for the next 40+ years.

Emotional ebb and flow of life

Everything is temporary.

A wise person said this once but it escapes me now where I read it.

It’s true though, don’t you think? Be it euphoric joy or debilitating depression, we pass through these sets of emotions and emerge with a fresh perspective. Maybe a new outlook. Definitely with accumulated life experience.

It’s the latter that defines us, characterizes us as the individuals we are today.

Life experience. Continue reading “Emotional ebb and flow of life”

Beach day, puppy update, covidiocy and a little rant

This post is a jumble of loosely connected points from the past weekend. In includes a Beagle puppy update (part 1), a Beach Day summary (part 2), and some remarks about COVID and protocol (part 3). And then I round up the whole post with a little rant. #SorryNotSorry

Part 1

On the weekend my daughter finally got her puppy.

So what does this make me? The “real” mom? “Boss” mom? “Grandma”? 😂😭

The numerical values of time, and what to do with it

I am not a numbers person. I have never been much of a math person. But today, I was inspired by some numbers.

The internet calculates things for us confused folk, hence, it was easy to lift the numerical values off the screen. All I have to do now is supplement them with my crafty words.

That is my jam, as you know. Words, not numbers.

So here goes. Continue reading “The numerical values of time, and what to do with it”

GOMA™ aka exercise by walking

Welcome to the first post of GOMA™ (Getting Off My Ass) and re-start walking regularly. I have two participants: Andrea in Germany (twitter @inkovator) and LA in NYC. So far. We are encouraging each other to stay on track with 20 minutes of brisk walking per day (at minimum) and documenting some sort of proof that we did it.

Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?

I waver back and forth between a house in the country (mainly his wish, and my daughter’s) and a small minimalist (aka empty and void of all nonessential clutter) place in/near the city with access to this, that and the other*.

What is the answer? Continue reading “Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?”
