Breaking News!!! This just in! Sit down, it’s gonna be good and it’s gonna be big. Ready? My Hurricane has joined the ranks of self-published e-authours. Seriously, you can now read an entire NOVEL written by my Seattle kid! Go HERE for the opportunity to buy it.
(And if you can’t right now, we totally understand. Just go check it out, no pressure. Puh-leeez, if anyone would be able to relate on the “can barely afford food” front, it’s us.)
I am beside my proud self elf with joy and admiration for her. She wrote it during her first NaNo, and her father did the proofreading. I know, the Amazon deal says I helped, but I did not. I WAS going to, but he kept being home and using the “good” computer, and the way they had the editing documents set up was sorta confusing, and I basically just dropped the ball. Doesn’t matter, it’s there, available for all the world to see and read now.
(If you find any mistakes, blame me, it’s completely my fault.)
She’ll be doing an article (for the Chuck Palahniuk site she contributes to) next week, with explanations and some backstory info. I imagine there will also be discussion about the e-pub/self-pub topic as well. Might be worth a look-see, for you writerly types. After that, it’ll have a LIKE option on FaceBook, or so she tells me. I think the only way I could be more excited is if the damn thing were actually made of paper and I was holding it.
Funny (or is it?) that I received the notification tonight when I sat down here to post. I saw our card earlier in the day, and mostly just thought ”damn, I love that illustration!” But now, once I’ve read the key words, and skimmed over the definition for a quick reminder, it seems to mesh quite smoothly with Hanny‘s announcement. Which was good, because all I really had to tell you today was that my irritating face rash was back.
This came up direct, but I’m going to include both Ally and Challenger, because that feels correct.
”The Well Watcher ~ wisdom, power of the Divine ~ 7
The Well Watcher signals the need to go within to contemplate the true source of power in the world – which, he reminds you, it is that of the Divine. This is a message to let you know that you are being called to the Well, and this unseen power will be there and will be yours to align with.
This affirmation and prayer will invite the Divine to bring miracles and resolution to your life:
‘Thy will be done through me for the highest good of all and for the true manifestation of my purpose.’
You will know the way forward by the still, small voice within. The Divine also may answer your call by sending others to help guide you.
The Well Watcher comes to let you know that you’ve run out of steam. Self-will alone isn’t enough to make things happen. All cannot be yours at this time. If you feel you are going nowhere, it is because you are meant to stay put. Willfulness can lead to your becoming like the bull in a china shop, creating havoc as you push forward.
Remember the sacred, creative Source of the water in the well. Drink some, be still, and contemplate the true origin of power. It isn’t you. So drink deeply of the Wisdom of the Divine, and listen to the beautiful music playing through your life. When you have made conscious contact with your higher power, you can move forward again, replenished and renewed.
This is also an important time to restore harmony in your relationship, since you may be temporarily out of tune with one another. If there is a power struggle between you, remember that only the Divine has true power and you won’t feel the need to struggle anymore.”
Allow me to begin by saying I think this character could be either boy or girl, or neither. (It needed to be said.) And also, make sure to click on this so you can see it up close, it’s just gorgeous, with tons of amazing details all the way throughout.
Now, let’s look at WHY we may be having some completion and communication difficulty. Yeah, happy EVERYTHING week! Mercury, the sun, Mother Moon, Day Light Savings, Venus and Jupiter, the Equinox, plus a shitstorm of other confusing planetary messes going on. My suggestion is to take it slowly and watch for signs. Focus on, as the card says, looking within and making that connection, feeling that power. Absorb some of this wild energy going around, but do it cautiously.
There is still potential for things to blow up. What we found, the past few phases though, is that when we are prepared, and realistic about what this means to us, we get through it with fewer complications and less struggle. As challenging as this sounds, letting go is really the best course of action. (I know, but it actually DOES help!)
Keep our heads down, allow the flow of these planets, seasons, clocks, stars, and tidal patterns to just wash over us. If we get wet? Well, we’ll dry. If anything gets shrunk and misshapen in the turmoil of it all? Well, some garments are made to wear a bit distressed, and if that’s not the look, you like you can always donate it and buy something else.
Now, here’s your Daily Dog. We are currently experiencing a major wind storm, so he’s been not-so easy to catch in a good moment. Big weather is not his friend.
