We have been busy this week painting and organizing and such. I now have to tackle the dining room table, where chairs are swathed in fat quarters and half meters of fabric and dolls disport among the embroidery floss. Five buried projects will come to light, but I can’t work on them because we are trying to get the house ready for sale.
Then we’re going to recover the dining room chair seats with fabric I bought five or ten years ago. We keep saying to each other “Why didn’t we look after ourselves?” or “We should have done this years ago.” Patterns in life, usually cemented in by problems in life. We went through a horrendous time during a bad recession in 1989-1993 and in some ways we didn’t bounce back.
How did I get this when the deck isn’t published yet? Steve sent me a written note on the back of one last year! This is from The Spirit Within the Shadows Tarot by Steven Bright. I was rummaging about looking for something to use and out it popped, reminding me to dance and celebrate and move, always move.
Joy, movement. Keep going.
I had a dream early yesterday morning where we were driving in the car and came to the crest of a hill, but we could see nothing over it, we couldn’t see how steep the hill was or if it curved. Nothing. So we sat and finally my husband said we’d just go and over we went and he said “Oh-oh” and we started to fall downward, surrounded by planets and space.
So I was telling him this dream in the car yesterday coming back from the library and I said “It was like we were free falling.” And I said I bet it means we should just go on our move and free fall, go with the flow. About seven minutes later they played the song Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty. I looked at him and said “It must be a sign!”
That was the 3 of Cups moment.
