Daily Draw October 20th, 2012
I have been up since 3:30 a.m. because Murphy the chocolate Labrador is still not making it through the night and I have to take him out around 3 or 4. He is on medication so I’m not too worried, plus he has only been here for 9 days so is still getting into a routine. Alas for me, insomniac that I am, taking him out usually wakes me up for hours.
III OF CATS (3 of Swords)
An interesting and refreshing take on the stabbed heart depiction which is usual with this card. The calico cat is gazing out feeling unable to proceed in some way. I am definitely feeling much like this; scattered and cloudy like the lyrics to the old Simon and Garfunkel song.
The booklet says there might be a sense of obligation that prevents action with this card and I feel like that. I have a few things to finish up for a gift but just can’t do them. Perhaps it is this sense of obligation that is overwhelming me? Why a gift should morph into an obligation in my mind doesn’t make sense but the delay is there.
One of my friends in a fibre group sent me a gift of a tea towel woven in a pinwheel pattern. It is done on a 4-shaft loom, so I can’t reproduce the pattern on my little rigid heddle loom, but I just love it. This lady sends a lot of gifts out to people and I imagine she feels bogged down in obligation sometimes too, but she forges on completing things and sending people gifts and her workmanship is exquisite.
If I am not sleeping and feeling a bit scatty, then I wait a day or two and work on something smaller in the meantime.
The cat is feeling wistful for the creative energy he had a few days ago, but being in the clouds for a time is not such a bad thing. Time for a hot water bottle and a nap.
