I finally got the Flower Reading Cards into the database today while the guy was cleaning the woodstove pipe so we could use it safely again.
The spouse is listening to an interview by Peter Mansbridge with Newt Gingrich. I had to get that one out of my head so I put my headphones on and listened to Lee Ritenour’s version of River Man by Nick Drake, which has gorgeous vocals by Kurt Elling, my favourite jazz vocalist.
Probably the last thing I should be doing is listening to this particular Nick Drake song. I can feel depression and withdrawal overtaking me. I’ve had two rip-roaring clinical depressions in my life and the last one lasted ten years and nearly killed me.
But gosh, it’s such a haunting song and that guitar just burbles along.
My arm was too sore to post a 2-card Linestrider Tarot draw I did this week. It was the Five of Pentacles and The Sun, which seemed pretty good after the rain, or the river as the case may be.
Instead, here’s a shot of the database with the new deck.
In lilac time, lalala, in summer time. “Betty said she prayed today for the sky to blow away, or maybe stay, she wasn’t sure. For when she thought of summer rain calling for her mind again…”
Good music on a Friday night. It plays better if you play it at least 10 times in a row.
