Each Day’s Aspect

 

“There are as many worlds as there are kinds of days, and as an opal changes its colors and its fire to match the nature of a day, so do I.”
― John Steinbeck

 

On Sunday I rose like the sun. The sky was filled with snow so I made my own light meditating and doing things that filled me with joy.
Monday, I became reflective, showing different aspects of myself as I attended to my inner self.
Tuesday, Mar’s day, I did battle with things that I found challenging, following the warrior’s way.
Wednesday found me playful and Mercurial, teasing out and making a game of my daily chores.
Thursday, by Jupiter, I did things I’ve never done before, expanding with joy.
Friday I walked in the woods hand in hand with my love and it was beautiful.
On Saturday I felt the weight of my years and realized the lessons I had learned.
Blessings, G

Wise Enough to Play the Fool

“This fellow is wise enough to play the fool;
And to do that well craves a kind of wit:
He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
The quality of persons, and the time,
And, like the haggard, check at every feather
That comes before his eye. This is a practise
As full of labour as a wise man’s art
For folly that he wisely shows is fit;
But wise men, folly-fall’n, quite taint their wit.”
― William Shakespeare

 

So the fool writes on. Working with the tarot and especially on the Fool Trump entry, I can see the wisdom in Shakespeare’s words. As a writer and artist constantly looking for feedback and wanting to use it to inform and not control my creative decisions I really get it. Not so much, “They don’t like the dark stuff I should go back to angels and sacred religious symbolism or pretty designs” as “Maybe I am not yet communicating these thoughts / images in a way that people can relate to” This blog is a dance of communication because by the time I get feedback on it it has been completed and so I gage moods, both that of my audience and what they have liked before and my own, what I may need to communicate at any given time. It can be a delicate dance but always a worthwhile one.
Blessings, G

Genie of the Lava Lamp

I remember the nights
that i could get down
sad, angry and depressed
and hold onto it for hours
before i realized that
feelings ebb and flow
and are of the moment
the undercurrent is joy
and tho we feel what we feel
that has little to do with who we are
we as being rise through the medium
much like the genie in the lava lamp.
