This will be brief. I yanked some damn thing* in my back today. Not because of any incident, crash, stress or strain, simply due to turning around on my bike to make sure the new bungee cord was holding what it was supposed to. (It only sort of was.) I’ll be fine, nothing huge. It’s just stiff, intermittently painful, and irritating as shit.
*Most likely a pulled muscle.
As she shares more, I’ll do the same. Yes, she’s there on work business. And yes, this is her first trip into that city. I am so super excited for her.
Here is our daily draw. I need to just get through it, and go find my BioFreeze. Plus the Arnica. And take some more analgesics.
Five Of Wands ~ Facing Challenges
Fives are of us, of matter. And Wands are of inspiration, of energy. Often, when we put these two together, we get some dust-ups of the creative variety. Be aware of this. Also, know that when we learn through the rough patches, we deepen our lessons.
One of the features of the way this deck is illustrated that I particularly like is how the staves make the shape of a Pentacle. Any time I can work with a five-pointed star, I’m happy. Even if there is conflict. I’d rather there NOT be any tussling, but it is part of life. Keeping that in mind, along with the Sacred Elements, will help us wade through, and get past, whatever is our currently disharmonious situation.
Our message is about how we DEAL with the challenges we face. Do we use our positive energy force? Do we smile down the demons? Do we put a more delightful spin on it all and search for our blessings? Or do we wallow and whine and learn not a damn thing? THAT part is up to us, as individuals, and as team members.
Robin Wood Tarot
I have no FLP report tonight because I was too busy twisting my spine around to keep eyes on my double-bags, but I do have a mini No Shampoo check-in for Day I-Don’t-Know-What (it began on the 3rd, so you do the math, not sure whether I should count the day I started or not), which is that, all of my dreadlocks have slipped away (or were gently untangled). Also, I need to buy a better quality head broom.
Brushing this ratty mop is part of the program. I forgot that part. Now I have to GET a damn tool. On the plus side, that vinegar smell absolutely does go away. However, I’m thinking of switching it for lemon juice next time I rinse. Because, why not?
