FACT: If there is a table surface available, a plant will end up there, as well as Dave and his sheep, tarot boxes, books, and cards, William Clark my portable GPS, and paint chips. Grey paint chips for the hall in which I am going to paint my white tree.
I bought three more pots and plants for the living room and dining room and I cleared the table off. We actually had lunch there yesterday. Zounds, such excitement. Pictures to hang and pillows to make, which means I have to tackle the three cartons of fabric and sort and put them away. We took four pictures to the framer to have them reframed, new windows have gone into three rooms, and I’ve lost count but I think we unpacked 19 boxes of stuff in the last two weeks.
I also packed three boxes of ornaments, a picture, a mirror, a cork board, and about seven bags of books to go to the thrift shop.
I – THE MAGICIAN – FOX
Ah Magus, thanks for dropping by today. I am exhausted and could use some of your energy.
This reminds me of the Thornton W. Burgess book about Danny Meadow Mouse—Reddy Fox was always trying to hear Danny Meadow Mouse scooting under the snow so he could pounce on him and eat him. And by golly here he is Reddy on The Magician in the Animal Totem Tarot, along with an appropriate figure.
The spouse and I have vowed to take a proper break this holiday Monday in order to rest. Fox says today “There is an undercurrent of abundance that flows through everything and everyone. But sometimes you have to stop doing what you are doing in order to truly tap into the magic of what is around you.”
So, expand the senses today, the real magic happens in the unseen. Stop talking, take a rest, be quiet and listen, like the fox listening for scurrying creatures under the snow.
