Daily Disaster Update – DDU for short:
1 – woke up with a nasty migraine – no wonder, after this crazzzy weekend with 2 craft shows in the stifling heat
2 – migraine meds are starting to kick in – I can see the keyboard! 🙂
3 – the phone is dead –
4 – Phone technician NO 18 is supposed to show up sometime today – to find out, what the last 17 technicians also found out – the line to Fraserburg needs repairing – it is full of water, rusted out and was hit by lightning. Canada’s Bell Telephone however will just NOT repair it, since it costs upwards of $ 65 000 ….. as of last year’s estimate, which by now probably is at $ 75 000, not counting the time and expenses for the – so far – 18 technicians…….
5 – the car is dead. – just like yesterday after the craft show, when we wanted to pack up to get home.. A shorted out circuit drains battery
Peter re-charged the battery and disconnected it – until we can drive the car to the shop, in order to exchange it for the OTHER one, our ooooold show van, that is there now, to be fixed…..
6 – Card of the day:
Tarot of the Trance:
Three of Swords!
2 red beasts are screaming at each other gnashing their teeth in anger and frustration. With the arrows attached to their tails they stabbed a helpless green Fish, that is bleeding out beneath them. Arrows from the waters below stab the Fish as well – in reverberation of the situation.
The cross on the hilt of the Sword in the middle however speaks of cross-roads and choice.
The Flowers in the border speak of summer – our time of stressss, shows, hectic, difficulties coping with all of it coming over us at once without reprieve.
How very appropriate!
Pain and heartaches of all sorts, stresssss and no time to take care of the things we need to do, like make jewellery and phone clients, never mind time for relaxing and regrouping,
Actions to be taken:
Safe the Fish!!!!
It represents us, out creative flow and Energy, pierced and immobilized by all the external calamities!
Instead of rushing around to try and fix phone lines, and none working cell phones and defunct cars, sit down to meditate and tune out all the humdrum – it still will be there humdrumming this afternoon, when we are in better shape to deal with it.
Relax and decompress by writing out your frustrations in a blog post.
Done! – and feeling better! 🙂
During our very hectic summer months I like to do my daily draws with the Tarot of the Trance, because its crazzzzy colours and bizarre images very much fit and express the weird, bizarre and hectic 2 months in our life, when our business – Bearpaw Jewellery, clashes with my shamanic practice, both fighting for my precious time. In the images I see reflected the heat and humidity, that bursts forward growth in Nature and all the crazzzzy problems my “summer clients” present to me in the hope of a “magical fix”
It also points out in vibrant colours, how badly I myself need one of these so very elusive magical fixes!
