One of the things I appreciate most about doing the work* that I do is observing, up close and personal, how freaking funny (bizarre and sarcastic) the Universe can be. Today, for example, I was really not very focused. On much of anything. Except the book I’m
completely immersed in reading currently. And then I sit down here and glance at our daily draw.
*And by “work” I don’t actually mean that it’s something I toil over, it’s really more of just the stuff I do, who and what I am.
I’ve said before that I know SOME about precious stones and metals, but not a ton. I haven’t read the definition yet on this card, but I have looked at the key words. And they made me laugh. So, we’ll start there I guess.
(Don’t you LOVE this color!? It reminds me of that Daiquiri Ice from Baskin Robbins, which I haven’t had in like, over a decade. Must go in search of some!)
“Selenite green ~
healing, tranquil pleasures, day dreams, imaginings.
Life is a river of dreams. Simply relax and enjoy the journey!
Over the coming days you will find yourself day dreaming, envisaging your life as you would truly love it to be. Your thoughts are bathed in the tranquil pleasures of love, romance, and ideal relationships, yet these imaginings are not fantasy, rather, they are glimpses of the future.
You are entering a time of great joy, creativity, and tranquility. This time your dreams and wishes really do come true!
Keep an open heart and mind, and above all, trust in the magical and healing power of love to transform your life. A period of great joy and happiness is just around the corner.”
Could this BE any more awesome?! When we get cards like this I am filled with that happiness and joy already. I know, that’s part of how it works. Which is just another cool aspect of my job.
Speaking of which, I did refer to this yesterday, but it needs to be looked at again. If only for my own sorting out here on paper (screen, whatever). Dan and I talked about what this blog was in the beginning and what it is now. And what it means to me, as well as what it means to people who read it (whether on a regular basis, just stopping by, from the very start or newly arrived).
Yes, I am a witch, and I do offer Tarot card readings for a nominal fee. I also cross stitch bad words for people who commission that type of work. But day after day I show up here and blather on about whatever the hell pops into my head. Plus, there’s a daily message from the Universe (or the mermaids, or the saints, or whoever). What does that MEAN to me? What does it mean to you guys?
One of the reasons we were talking about it is that lately I’ve neglected my quilting and it’s been taking me longer to finish any hand work (that beaded kit I picked up from the shop owner is WAY past due). So what needs to be cut, what needs to be prioritized? Obviously not THIS!
The other actions that take more time now (well, take TIME, in general) are the walks and bike rides, and the water class which recently came back. My schedule is different than it was this time last year. Am I also spending more time blog hopping? Mmmmmm, maybe…..
No decision was made, by me anyway (I haven’t any idea what conclusion HE came to). This blog is what I do now (have done for years), this activity of showing up every damn day, no matter what the circumstance or situation, is so important to me, that I won’t be cutting it out any time soon.
Perhaps I have an overblown view of my ridiculous and admittedly flawed self elf, but what it feels like to me, and it genuinely feels this way, is that I offer something (something important? Something valuable? Something you can’t find anyplace else?) to those of you who click on my name. I know this, I DO have something to share, and I enjoy the process.
My hope is that you guys enjoy it as well. (I know you do, you tell me nice things like that all the time, this is sort of a rhetorical question, NOT a plea for back pats and kudos, seriously.)
Bottom line is, I’m here for as long as I have JulieLanders, card reading customers, and folks who want to buy decorative profanity that looks awesome in a nice frame. But right this minute, if you’ll excuse me, I have a couple of items to finish, so that later I can go see what everyone ELSE has to say.

LateNight Inspiration: I’m being told that we may need more decks by this guy. His definitions are beautiful and I am really feeling drawn to expanding our selection, in his direction.
