I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Footloose

From the Morgan-Greer Tarot, the Three of Pentacles; from the Gods and Titans/Goddesses and Sirens Oracles, Loki:
This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play. 
Alan W. Watts

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. 
Dr. Seuss 

          Today I have drawn two sides of a coin: the Master Craftsman and Loki the Trickster. One focuses on work and the other play. Which side most represents you? I've been a serious taskmaster most of my life, reserving play for when I had finished all my duties (which isn't often). But today is my birthday, so I'm taking Seuss's advice to wake up some brain cells that don't get activated often. I don't have a thing planned, which is part of the process. Now let's see if I can remember how to cut loose...

    1. Thank you soulsis! That's an interesting saying... I wonder if it has to do with those poppers children play with?

  8. We definitely work best when it feels like play. I guess the trick is in figuring out how to make things feel that way when it doesn't always come naturally... :)

    1. Yep, I'm the world's worst when it comes to wanting to organize my play days instead of just letting them unfold naturally! :)
