Visible and vocal
I drew the Queen of Swords this morning. I was feeling sad and, for some reason, full of shame. As I comtemplated the card I started to write this which encompassed the qualities of the Queen of Swords and has some autobiographical qualities... The Queen of Invisibility What life has she had that she faded… Continue reading Visible and vocal
Enough. Enough, haven't you got enough stuff Haven't you filled that gaping hole inside Haven't you stymied that gnawing lust and pride? Enough. Enough, don't you realise you are just not that tough?

Here's a cliff I think I'll jump off it...oh bugger) I had thought what I am going to call spiritual development for want of a better way of… Continue reading Karma cop-out

I am being stalked by a number, actually a gang of numbers, combinations of 1 and 4. Ha, and as i wrote that the time changed to 11:44. Those numbers have a wicked sense of humour. I studied a bit of numerology when I did my crystal healing course and found , like astrology and… Continue reading Does it add up?
