gratitude thursday 8/7

I am grateful. Tarot classes began again last night—studying the major arcana. Fewer people this time; we could all fit around the table! And Rowan is attending this time. How wonderful. I had Rabbit on my left and Rowan on my right; heavenly.

I’m grateful for the abundance of Tarot imagery I have now. Thank you Courtland and Rabbit! The deck I use in my personal work is the first on the left—the Radiant Rider Waite deck. My ideas and outlooks and understanding are expanding hugely having all these interpretations to look at and with which I can work.

I’m grateful for the new hula song I’m learning. I have never practiced at home before; I’m in a new place with hula and the song is so lovely!

I’m grateful for lots of work in the house and for being gainfully busy.

I’m grateful for the possibilities of new work. I get to go after one today.

I’m grateful for cool August days. And for my health.

Rabbit emailed me last night and said my skin looked dewy. Oh yeah! Nice to hear.

I am feeling very good today, said the woman who is now about nine days off of caffeine. I’m still awed by this change.

Blessings, blessings, blessings. From my cells out to the farthest reaches of the universe.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
