Attempting “Therapy Tarot”

For the last day of July, I’m closing out with more mystic “food for thought.”   I came across this tarot spread idea on Facebook a couple months ago and considered trying it out. I’m very sporadic with using my cards, and yesterday I finally got myself to do it. It’s me we’re talking about, so…

The Mystery (and Madness) of Synchronicity

I had said in the beginning that I wasn’t planning on writing more of these long, drawn-out posts about a specific man.  However, continued unexplainable occurrences have led me to it, and I felt compelled to share what I’ve been experiencing over the past few months.  This blog has to do with the topic of…

The Name of My Affliction

It was something I was used to doing every year – visiting my grandparents’ grave. It was an annual family tradition of ours to each year visit the veterans’ cemetery and have a picnic lunch afterwards.

But still, sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing, I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don’t know…maybe I had my happiness. I don’t want to believe it, but, there is no man, Gilly. Only that moon.”

As it did so the night before
Silently I worked and wept
And made it through the Midsummer morn
Inside, the clouds were darkening still
Like those in a May spring storm

Heartbreak and the Road to Healing: An Introduction to My Life

I have never been the “passionate writer” type. My twin sister has been the obsessive, mad scientist fictional writer as long as I can remember, even when we were in grade school. It’s always been a now-and-then thing for me, just when the mood struck. Until recently, that is. Lately I have been, not just…
