WORDPRESS WEDNESDAY-BOOK OF SHADOWS: A Look Within, A Look Without #Journal

Good morning.

The following is a snippet from my morning’s journaling. I hope you enjoy.

 

DECEMBER 11, 2019.

MOON PHASE WAXING FULL

TAROT CARD KING OF SWORDS *UPRIGHT*

KEYWARDS…

UPRIGHT: Mental clarity, intellectual power, authority, truth

DESCRIPTION: The King of Swords sits upon his throne, facing forward as if ready to confront whatever life throws at him. He holds a sword in his right hand, the hand

of the conscious, rational mind, and points it upright and to the left, the side of the subconscious, intuitive mind. This symbolises the King’s decisiveness,

but also flexibility in all matters; while he makes decisions based mostly on his intellectual understanding, he stays open to his intuition. The King

wears a blue tunic, symbolic of a desire for spiritual knowledge, and a purple cape, symbolic of his compassion and intellect. The back of his throne is

decorated with butterflies (transformation), crescent moons and an angel just near his left ear, positioned as if to give him subtle guidance.

 

The trees behind him stand still, and the clouds have settled. The wind from the previous Swords court cards has died down, giving the impression of stability

and clarity rather than the confusion of sweeping change.

 

NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.

A train whistle echoes in the distance, it’s engine rumbling as it makes its way across the sleeping city. The chemical factory just a stone’s throw from my house roars its continuous pollution out into the air and onto everything which surrounds it. A lone car chokes into life and speeds off, taking the occupants within to their destination, the cold wind sneaks in through the cracks around the window, and I sit quietly experiencing it all.

I’m awake in the early morning. I love this time most of all. My thoughts are racing, I have many ideas, and much to accomplish this day. I sit, breathing in and out, in and out, sorting everything into neat rows of files in my brain so that all I wish to do might be done this day.

What will happen if I don’t do everything I’ve planned for this day? If I’m fortunate to see another tomorrow, I will rise, go into the bathroom, do my morning’s necessary, wash my face, brush my teeth and hair, make a cup of coffee and start again.

Each day is filled with life, promise, and possibility and thanks be to the Goddess I am alive to enjoy it all.

I get to choose how I think, react, and feel.

I get to choose whether I’m happy, sad, angry, or nothing at all.

My life is mine and no one else’s and I’ve but one regret, and that is that I took so long to realize these things which I share here on this page.

I think, “If only I could go back and know then what I know now.” Then I push the thought away, because I know as surely as I sit here typing these words that I’d do not one thing differently and I know that if I were to do so I would not be sitting here as I am now.

Life is a wheel turning ever round, moving onward, and whether we go onto an afterlife, or come back here to do things again and again until we’ve done them right makes no difference because it is the here and now, this moment in time which is important and we must drink the sweetness of the living which is put before us.

If we do this and know it for what it truly is we will have done more in just that one thing than we could’ve ever hoped to accomplish in our entire lives.

Everyone is always pushing and pulling. Trying to force this thing or that. Insisting that their work be perfect, wanting more and more and never being satisfied with what is.

Now, the train has gone, the car has gone, the factory continues to roar, and in the houses all around me people awaken to start their days.

Do any of them here what I hear? Feel what I feel and know what I know? I don’t know, but I hope they do and if they don’t, may they learn it before it is too late.

“live… Laugh…Love…”

For my friends, it is but that simple.

“Today is yesterday’s tomorrow, and tomorrow is another day. Life moves on.”

STAR SIGNS: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS (2019)

by Lynda McKinney Lambert

 

Now in paperback ($9.50) and e-book ($2.99) from Amazon, Smashwords, and other online sellers.

 

Details, cover image, buying links, and free text preview: https://www.dldbooks.com/lyndalambert/

 

About the book:

Lynda Lambert covers a wide terrain of subjects and topics in this new book, from lights to legends to seasons, treating us to images and metaphors about plants, people and weather. She opens this large collection with the title poem, Star Signs, which walks us through the alphabet as it digs through thoughts, emotions and observations, “Using star signs to map out new terrain.”

Throughout this book of poems, these gems of poetic creation shimmer like beads on her fabric art, like bold brush strokes of color on her paintings, and reflect light like the gemstones on her prize–winning piece of mixed–media fiber artwork. It seems this entire collection is like a multifaceted mural.

Her attentiveness to nature and strong reflections from memory have woven from a collage of remnants a beautiful tapestry for us. It offers a wonderful feast for the eyes and the mind.

 

—Wesley D. Sims, author of Taste of Change

 

This is the author’s third book of poetry.

Star Signs ebook cover

 

Description of the cover image of Star Signs:

 

The late evening photo shows several delicate, bare trees in silhouette, leaning slightly to the right, against a violet-colored sky. There is a faint streak of pinkish light to the right of the trees, low on the horizon. Thousands of stars are visible in the sky. The solid black landscape below the trees appears to be the shore of a darkened lake, which is in the foreground. A few stars are reflected in the water. The overall impression is one of stillness and beauty. The predominant colors are black and violet, along with white pinpoints of starlight. The title and subtitle are in white at the top of the cover, and the author’s name is in white at the bottom.

Good to know since just yesterday I did a recorded presentation on my plans for the new year where my business is concerned.

Hello everyone.

Author Abbie Johnson Taylor here with a couple of announcements for you. If you live in Sheridan, Wyoming, and plan to visit a friend or relative at Sugarland Ridge this evening, my group, Just Harmony, will perform in the lobby at 6 p.m.

EBookCover Abbie Taylor Red Dress

 

description of the cover from the book, The Red Dress, by Abbie Johnson Taylor:

A very beautiful black-haired model, about 18 or 19 years of age, with her hair in a loose bun, is shown down to about mid-chest. Her red dress is cut in a low V, with a bow at the bottom of the V. She is holding a bouquet of long-stemmed, brownish-gold flowers. She is almost in profile, with her head turned to her left, so we see the right side of her face. She has bright red lipstick on. Her eyes are downcast; she looks pensive but not sad. The background is pale gray. Above her head is the title in dark red letters, The Red Dress. Above that is the author’s name in black letters.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request…
