Seasons


 Yesterday I took a lovely drive in the sunshine and I noticed the Autumnal Season is ready to give way to Winter. The trees have given the last of their leaves in their preparation for their Winter's hibernation.  I was treated to glimpses of hawks along the byways. Beautiful to behold as they survey their domains.  Today as well, I will spend a bit of time in the chilly sunshine as predictions of snow showers on Monday and Tuesday are hinted at.  I am already counting the days to The Winter's Solstice so that I can celebrate the turning of Seasons as Winter begins the march toward Spring.

On tippy toes

 

Balance - Counter-Balance. For every action a reaction. Good days, not so good days.  Take 'em as they come.  "Celebrate good times, come on!" Some days are wonderful, something to sing about and some days not. The counter-balance does not have to be doom and gloom; it can be as simple as putting our feet back on the ground. If we were up-up-up all the time then that would become our normal and would kind of take the whoopee out of it.

Today I will take the blessings and joy where I can find them, for tomorrow belongs to tomorrow.

Thanksgiving


 Thanksgiving Day.  A good time to remember the blessings we enjoy. Be on the offensive of who and what we have in our lives instead of the defensive, worrying and counting the 'what ifs' and lack. 

Happy Thanksgiving.

Sharp Objects

 

We have all heard it, "don't run with knives, scissors, or questionable people."

M.P.H.

 

How fast does The World spin? About a 1000 mph. Pretty fast, so fast that this World Dancer lost her clothes. Life can move along at a pretty fast clip some days, so fast that what we think and feel can get distorted by the spin. Thank goodness for gravity.  Our trip around the Sun only has about 37 days left to it this year. Don't know what 2021 will bring, but hold on to your clothes, the ride could get bumpy. Starting back at the Fool we all might just fall off the cliff.

Self Interest

 

Nothing wrong with self-interest. If we are not interested in ourselves, who would be? If we do not look out for what is best for us, who will?  Self Interest taken to self importance is a fine line.  Get them before they get you is and idiom we hear all the time. Look where it has gotten us.

Directional

 

When everything points you in one direction, best to travel that path.  Surrender and trust the process, I need to keep reminding myself of that truthism. The Eight of Wands can be about something incoming. If I get a message today, sure bet I am going to listen and follow through.

VisionQuest

 

I know that I would not enjoy a vision quest. No food or water and sitting by myself on a mountain top for hours, preferably days. I would have visions too if I had no water for hours and hours much less days and days. Besides my broken down knees would hamper any attempt at crouching on the ground for days.  I am still working on silence within for twenty minutes in a chair. Kudos for those that can, for me disconnecting from the media and my cell phone for a couple of hours gives me the respite needed to quiet my mind.

Flowing River


Today hopefully will be one of those easy peasy days, just go with the flow.  Recently most of my days have been pretty easy going.  I have eliminated a big issue and things are going along nicely.  I am working on the 'Surrender and Trust the Process.' 

I might pack a lunch and go down and sit by river. Always a good option, if the weather is right.

Peace Pipe


There are days I miss smoking. I enjoyed the habit. Shaking a cigarette out of the pack, flame to tobacco, the long warm inhale, watching the curl of smoke on the exhale. There was a shared camaraderie with other smokers as we huddled together in our designated smoking areas. Ahh, those were the days.  I enjoyed them while they lasted; would not do again. Sometimes, just once in awhile, I hesitate a moment in a cloud of smoke as I pass by smokers and a sigh with a bit of nostalgia.

White Buffalo

 

I recently saw a picture of a man standing next to a buffalo that was loaded in a tagging shute. They were ear tagging buffalo for tracking and conservation purposes. I knew the animals were large but huge would be more apt. Humongous and beautiful.  With the world, society, and life in general on edge, spending time out in nature appreciating the natural wonder of our world would help heal.  So focused on the what ifs in front of us we have lost site of the sacred and spiritual all around us.

I am in a down time, away from work and find myself a bit itchy and this card reminds me there are other things to do with my precious time than to work and worry.

Spirit of Fire

 

Fire has many attributes. The booklet tells of the 'fire of transformation.' Well fire will certainly do that. This Spirit of Fire card reminds me more of an S.O.S., a beacon fire on the beach.  "Here I am!" makes me think of the myriad of ways that people with low-self esteem use tactics to gain attention. Seems we have a lot of those everywhere.

Tracker


 In 2005 I visited the Grand Canyon while vacationing with family. Awesome. I didn't appreciate how spectacular the canyon was as I was not in a good place in life. I was whiny and miserable most of trip, complaining most days. I prefer green and water and nothing out there has that. I think if we stopped at the Coconino National Forest I would have stood taller than the trees. Lack of rainfall made the forest look little more than scrub. If I visited today, I would appreciate the tenacity of life that the trees hold on to. The Colorado River looked like a little stream from above. Today I would look with wonder at the power of the river to carve the canyon.

Heart and mind set have so much to do with the way we perceive the world. Track your feelings and how you think to gain perspective on where you are or where you plan on going.
