Legacy



Last night I started reading the book STILL ALICE by Lisa Genova.  The story begins with the introduction to a Harvard professor, Alice, and in short order she begins to have episodes of memory impairment.  It doesn't take long for the diagnosis and increasing frequency of lost blocks of her memory that the disease of Alzheimer's begins to make a huge impact on her life.  I put the book aside to finish later and pondered on everyone's immediate denial, including Alice's.  She wants to continue on as long as she can, which she really can't.  Wouldn't it better serve her and all her family to spend as much time together?   I tried to stop and think about my reaction given the same diagnosis.  Couldn't.  I wonder sometimes what is it, that I will leave behind?

Go away

There are lots of these people in real estate.  Looking for the get rich quick schemes.  A lot of them have been watching infomercials that talk of buying homes and fixing them up, selling them and making a big profit.  Blah Blah Blah, there are only about 500 in our smaller side of the Louisville Metro area doing this already. I guess I will hear from one today.  Another someone with big ideas on buying and selling homes and make a fortune.

Whistle While You Work

If you are going to show up, might as well enjoy yourself.

I had a great time on my vacation a week or so back.  This card reminds me that I don't have to wait to enjoy myself.  Each day presents itself with hardships or challenges as in the five or seven that surrounds this card.  So, that's Life, we all have those days and then we all have days like this six.  When looking at this card it reminded me of "whistle while you work" from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  That lead me to viewing a couple of video clips from the old movie of SN and the 7D's.  How movies and videos have changed.  Still I was tapping me my toes in unison with the songs of old.  For me it was a few minutes of vacation, a bit of joy in a simple thing.  So, Hi Ho Hi Ho its off to work I go.

GAIA


Sometimes I am compelled to sleep.  What if those times are communing times.  Times with the Divine.  Special times.  Conversations with my Higher Self, Spirit, Divine, God, Goddess, Universal Source.


I find it curious that one of the Goddesses standing in support of the World in this card is Oya, the Goddess of Strength in yesterday's draw.

Buckle up

Does it take Strength to just let some things go that no longer serve us?  This goddess OYA holds dominion over the wind, lighting, and storms.  She appears to be stirring up a tempest and even the fauna know it is time to seek shelter.

This is one of the those decks of the Tarot that the author has placed Strength in position XI, displacing Justice to VII, which just doesn't figure with the story line of tarot.  I do find it fascinating that Strength either follows The Chariot or in this case, The Wheel.  In both instances something has changed, some movement has occurred that brings Strength in, to help us accept that change.
So I am guessing that since Strength has paid me a visit at the first of the week I can look for some kind of change in my day to day or at least be on the look out for some stormy weather.

Keywords from the card: Courage, Inner Strength, Leadership.

Corner post

Gargoyle of  Notre Dame de Paris.  I did not know gargoyles were built and placed to be water spouts to move water out and away from the building to slow the erosion of water on mortar and masonry.

This Knave or Page of Swords I think was sent to the top of the building for a time out.  He needed to see the consequences of his actions on the city.  His thoughts and deeds got him into so much mischief; he had to stand in his corner so many times, he became a permanent  part of the structure.
When we were children we too had to go stand in the corner for punishment.  I only went once maybe twice and knew it wasn't for me so I behaved myself to avoid discipline.  I wasn't necessarily a goodie two shoes, just a bit smarter and managed not get caught when I did step out of line.
This is the second Page I have drawn this week.  Something new possibly on it way to me?  Some new thought or type of work?  Maybe a reminder not to stay too long at one thing.

Come together

Les Saintes Maries de la Mer: France - a holy site in France where the Three Marys arrived after leaving the Holy Lands.

Mostly the Six of Cups reminds me of what we surround ourselves after the loss in the Five of Cups.  Friends, family, or a sacred site brings us comfort.  The connection with someone or something familiar and reliable aides us in our acceptance of change and loss.
