This is a different perspective on the card of Death.  Gives me pause for consideration.

In a book I recently read, a man described his NDE - near death experience.  He had a massive heart attack and falling to the ground he laid there and actually had the experience of dying. Everything went calm and smooth and he thought to himself "this is what dying is" and in that moment realized he was not afraid of dying, that he really had been afraid of life, that living is the real challenge.  The part of him that was still in his body mustered himself and brought himself back from the brink. This story really resonated with me;  I too was at that place of separation when the EMT's started their revival work on me years ago.  And the telling of his tale makes me wonder when I comment and say I am not afraid of dying, what  I am saying is that I am fearful in living.  Something to think about.

Give it a splash

It is hot this week.  In the 90's most everyday until late next week.  This card reminds me when I was a young girl we didn't go to the neighborhood pool for a swim to cool off.  We lived in a more rural setting and so our answer as kids was go have a splash in a creek.  Back behind our home was several fields with a creek running through them, the only caveat was there were cows out and about and the farmer didn't want us upsetting the herd and neither did the bull among his gals.  We had to dash in and have a splash and get back out.  There was always the hose in the backyard, but running through the fields and jumping in the creek was more fun and carefree. 
For today maybe I can find a way to capture a moment of my carefree youth?

Much ado

Hope springs eternal.

Let's see what the day brings.

Silver tongue

This Knight of Wands has a clever way with words, otherwise how could he convince a rabbit to saddle him and take him for a jaunt?

Today it is supposed to be all rain.  Good day to stay in and maybe do some sales calls and see if I can connect with a few clients for now and the future.  I was never really 'clever' with words.  I am all the straight out approach.  If I can help I will, if not, I am on my way. "Saddle up bunny."

Now What

Who upset the apple cart?

There were a number of instances over the weekend that I incurred short bursts of chaos.  Those are the times to fall back on the tried and true, structure.

The Shadow

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, the Shadow knows."
evil--live, vile, veil, lie

Can we or do we, ever knows what another really thinks?  What lurks within.  Can we know what life has dealt another?  Maybe this fairy captured and stacked all the snowballs because he grew up with next nothing and his fear of lack causes him to be a bully, when in reality he just needs someone to see beyond his/her shadow self.
Today I will give myself and others the benefit of a doubt.

The Path

How many times in life have I taken the path of least resistance?  The 'go along to get along' mentality. Probably more than I care to admit.

Some of those choices didn't really make much of a difference, didn't shape the me of me.  One though, did.  I knew it was wrong and in reflection I keep asking myself the why of it.  Thirty years now gone by and still I see the result it had in the lies of my life, and how those lies have affected even the here and now. 
I guess it was part of this life's experience.  I wonder a lot even to this day, if I had not followed that path and just said "no thank you" and moved along.
Actually there was another one...guess I better get my calculator out and start a count.

Summer to Fall

Seasons change and so do I. 

My daily affirmation calendar "Today I just show up and flow through the day."  Appropriate for this Queen of Cups.

I have noticed in the last few days splashes of orange and yellows appearing among the trees.  Yesterday morning I heard a gaggle of geese honking above as they begin their autumnal gathering.  It is all part of the flow of change, and it is time for me to think of my own preparations for the changing of seasons.

Jingle Jangle

That is the phrase I heard when I looked at this card. So I went out to the www and wanted to see where the expression originated.

I always associated the phrase with the jingle of coins in my pocket, you know when you are standing in line with nothing much to do but wait (this was before the cell phone) and you just jingled the coins in your pants pocket.
Upon discovery Jingle Jangle was a tune performed by the Archies back in the 1960's.  There is also a song named Jingle, Jangle, Jingle performed by lots of old country western singers that refers to the sound their spurs make while horse back riding, also I think back in the 60's.  I think the Archie's song came first so I don't know if there was ever a suit for infringement.  Anyway, I going to take a nod from the card and go out and jingle jangle some of my coins today and come back home with less than I started with.

Care-ful management

This lovely fairy is arranging  dandelion blooms in the garden. 

I used to admire those well maintained and landscaped yards.  Green green everywhere. Not a blade of grass out of place and not a dandelion in sight. I was never one to spend my coins on professional weed control; the management of my flower beds with my hands was enough.  Those lovely lawns are killing off bees and so many more of Earths lovely creatures. 
All those chemicals seep into the ground, run off in to the storm sewers after rain fall into our creeks, rivers, and oceans.  All those chemicals - just keep the lovely dandelion from blooming.  Now when I drive the neighborhoods when I see a yard full of dandelions I give a nod of thanks to those homeowners. 
Acid Rain?  Definitely from our own making.

Practice makes perfect

Practice makes perfect.  How many times over the years have I heard that one.  Some wisdom in those words and sometimes I think all that practice on one skill set might choke the magic right of our me.

The wonder of being a Magician's apprentice, to learn what they will learn.  I think this young fellow had enough of working on his skill sets and decided to take what he has learned and headed out and see where it will take him, much like the Fool, out and about.   
This young elfin holds the Infinity Symbol in his hand.  I learned a bit of magic healing a few years back from a healer.  Imagine the lemiscate stitching and repairing tissue from a wound. I work with this healing mystique still today.

I must remember that I hold a bit of magic in me as well.

Until I listen

This guy again?

It seems just about anytime I spend time with this deck, this fellow makes an appearance. I don't understand what he has to say to me.  Of course I am not prone to listen to old men's advice.  Funny that, because now I am in the same age group, so the guy is not really not an old man just a contemporary.
Maybe I should just sit down with him once and for all and hear him out.
