Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

After that, I found a giraffe with this long graceful neck and just bought it. Like that. No waffling, just did it. And then there was a third one...and now my mom has added two more....and I don't know where this will end, but they've all been desk-accessory sized.
I read a number of blogs out there in "intarweb land", but I know very few of those that I read, so let's see if I can come up with seven whole bloggers!
Now, I have to go de-lurk on some blogs and tag some wonderful women!
Got this from Lorinda:
The career meme…
What fascinates me about this quiz is that there were no questions that appeared to lead toward the home-based textile arts industry (spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, sewing, and so on...). This quiz is really focused on "getting a job", not finding a career, IMHO. *smile*
One of the few things my father got right was when he would say, "Pick what you would do on vacation. Make that your career and you'll never work again." That's true, for the most part. It won't be "work" all day, every day. It'll be something you enjoy and have a passion for. But the flip side is that all jobs have "bad stuff": paperwork for those who hate paperwork; time clocks for those who hate schedules; a crappy boss; an annoying co-worker. So, choosing to do what you are passionate about makes those annoying parts less so.
I tell my son, "It's not how much you make at your job that matters. It's how happy your job makes you." I don't care if he grows up to be a garbage man or a lawyer (well, maybe I'd mind the lawyer...). I don't care if he becomes a car mechanic or a doctor (similar tasks, different "patients"...and a mechanic sure doesn't have the malpractice insurance a doctor does!). I just want him to be the best he can be at whatever he chooses to be.
Meanwhile, here I am at thirty-seven, a "writer" who hasn't really been writing lately and isn't sure what she wants to be when she grows up. Have you seen those new Cingular-now-AT&T commercials where someone is sitting on a stool and the backgrounds keep changing 'cause they're in contact with people all over the world? Near the end, they say something like, "...'cause my place is
I received this from my Mom:
Here's what I want you to do. Describe me in ONE WORD...just one word! Send it to me only, then send this message to your friends and see how many strange things people say about you! This is really fun! Just hit reply and send me my one word back. Then forward this message on to your friends (including me) and see what they say about you!
So, instead of sending this to "all my friends", I'll just put it here and anyone who wishes can respond.
That's all for now. (Hey, Vlad the Impaler beckons me!)
Jody is having a 100th post contest and has invited comments on her blog to answer the following questions. I thought I'd share them here as well.
1. Since it is my 100th blog contest – If you have a blog – how many entries have you made?
44 --- Wow, I thought it'd be more than that!
2. What is the first thing you notice about a person when you meet them for the first time?
Hmmm... The writer in me notices the details that make a person stand out from "brown hair, brown eyes"---the little impefections that make us human and real. The b*tch in me notices pantylines (I'm horrid, I know!).
3. What are you currently reading? And what is your favorite book of all time?
Currently: Wyrmhole by Jay Casselberg, Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
Favorite: (the *very* abbreviated list) Fledgling by Octavia Butler, everything by Wen Spencer or Jim Butcher.
4. Where is the furthest you have ever traveled from home?
I spent a year in Rancagua, Chile during my Junior year in high school. At the time, I was living in Ohio. I'll let those more inclined to figure out the math.
5. I’m sure everyone has some knitted project that they just can’t seem to get around to starting. I know I have several. What is something you would like to knit “One day”?
There's a cardigan on the cover of the premier issue of Knit Today (UK magazine) with wooden beads in it. I want to make this but I need to size it up for plus size.
6. And finally – since it is October - what are you going to be for Halloween?
Asleep? Just kidding. A couch potato, most likely. We don't "do" Halloween around my house.
That's all for now.
