Certain current events have driven me from all media, social and traditional. (Driven me nearly into a breakdown, if I’m to be honest here. And you all KNOW that I am nothing if not honest.)
I’m surrounding myself with loved ones, caring friends, new co-workers who are already becoming a natural and endearing part of my life. I’m being safe, in the only way I know how.
One of those ways is to not discuss topics which are too painful to mention. I’m going to work, I’m reading good escapism fiction, I’m planing projects in my sewing room, and I’m sketching out the beginnings of my new oracle card decks.
If you’re having trouble, too, I recommend similar methods. I believe that, right now, Self-Care is more important than ever. Support, in whichever way works for you, this is key.
Be the light.
We can make changes, but only if we’re strong enough. I am not currently able to do much more than stay upright and vertical. But that’s okay. I know my limits and I’m using what tools I have assembled to keep me from drowning.
Please, do the same. Take care of yourselves, deal with only as much as you feel you can manage, and by all means, call in any favors you may have outstanding. If now is not the time to help, I can’t imagine when it would be!
And since I don’t question the Universe (although, I really fucking want to!), I’m not asking why this draw appeared on our card altar. It just did, so we’ll learn from it. As we will with everything else.
“Awakening Your True Self ~
You are beginning to recover your natural identity, including your old sense of humor, interests, passions, and desires. Trust that any confusion or changes you’re currently experiencing are part of your healing evolution.
I now give myself permission to be true to myself.”

If you need me I’ll be looking at photos like this, because, we need to remember what matters. And what doesn’t.
Be well, take care, rest, support, grieve, do what is best for you.
