Because of more extra work/training for my Beloved today, I was on my own.  THIS is where I spent a large portion of time.  Well, there, the library, and bus stops.

             The weather here is windy and mild.  Clear.  Which is enjoyable.  So, I appreciated every aspect of it.  But, in the back of my mind, as I trudged and rode and gazed and listened, I held on to our message:

Team Effort

             Even when we are unaccompanied, we are still with others.  We’re in a city, or town, or a village.  We are part of the sacred Whole.  We are groups and clans and families (the made type as well as the born kind).

             When we aim all of that energy towards a common goal, we are capable of achieving so very very much.  And that’s where our focus needs to be.  On accomplishments.  On the entirety of our combined successes.

             Those groups and gatherings, those are our tribes, our treasures.  Even as I was today, a solitary person, I was still with everyone else.  As are we all.

             Being directed to this particular draw on the card altar was another reminder of our team effort.  We can’t, any of us, have gotten this far without support and fellowship and caring.  Our rewards are to be shared, as is our healing.

reap what you sow

“Goddess Of Nature  ~

‘You reap what you sow;

Your dream is coming to fruition.’

This is a time to reap the rewards and benefits that are derived from the seeds of a project, venture, or idea you planted some time ago.  Your dream is coming to fruition.

It has not all been plain sailing, and many a time you have doubted whether your many efforts and labour would ever be rewarded.  Yet harvest time has come.

A time when you reap what you have sown.  Accept all the blessings about to come your way and realise that they are the result of the love, courage, dedication, and commitment you have shown in the recent past.

Give thanks to Mother Nature and enjoy.”

             We were driving to visit family one time, heading AWAY from the coast (never a direction I go intentionally) and had just about reached the High Mountain Desert, when The Deputy said to me, “ya know what I don’t like about it?”  Because, truthfully, neither of us can stand that part of the world.

             “It’s so scritchy!”  And ya know, I had to agree.  Some folks see the beauty in these stark landscapes.  We are not among them.  (Okay, HE can see the beauty, but doesn’t care to spend any time there.)

             To us, it simply fells dry.  And for me, personally, too far from any ocean.  (Also, it’s uncomfortable.  And scritchy.)

  1. A weekly market! How wonderful! I wish we had something like that out here. As for the desert, I love visiting. There is just something about the stark landscape that calls to me. I remember as a child a trip cross-country by car. My father liked to be on the road as the sun was coming up so I would be outside in the desert as it was being hit by the sun. It has a smell and a quietness all its own. I could not live there full time though. I am a water pig and a water lover. I need the green that comes with the water as well. But I do love cacti and buy them to have my own personal desert in the house.

    1. Every single Saturday (during the season) since May 9, 1970. It’s the longest (continuous) running artisan’s market in the country.
      (And yes, I’m way proud of that fact.)
