We had a lot of snow today, so I took the day off and stayed home. My tires aren’t that great, and snow gives me major anxiety. I honestly don’t even like to look at it. Winter is my least favorite season. Thankfully I still have lots of PTO (paid time off) and I plan on using it. I save a lot of it just for this winter weather insanity. My husband Matt took the day off too. I made some votive candles, and Matt did some more work on a quilt. We’ve been watching Grace and Frankie, a hilarious comedy-drama about two women who discover that their husbands have been having an affair with each other and decided to get married. It’s a really great series starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. We’ve already watched the first two seasons.
Last night I had a very disturbing dream that I was getting a tarot reading from a certain reader, one that I am not too fond of. He told me the reading “wasn’t pleasant” and the cards were saying “Maybe it’s time you stopped coming to the show“. I asked him if the reading was influenced by his personal opinion of me, at which point he stood up and said “Get out”. I replied “Gladly” and walked out the door. That was it. I can interpret this lots of different ways, but I think I know what it means…I will keep that to myself. For the record, I will not stop “coming to the show”.
Every Winter I am drawn to darker things, darker music and I am more open to let the darker aspects of my personality come out. This year I decided to be more open about everything I like, not just spiritual things, not just Celtic things. Everything. When people only see certain sides of you they don’t get a full impression of who you are.
Recently we were at Barnes & Noble and I found this book for $1.99. “The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes“. It’s 939 pages and the print is rather small, so it’s a good thing I got my glasses fixed. I opened my glasses case one morning and they fell apart.
I’ve read some of these stories already, but there are many here that I haven’t. I can’t believe it was only $1.99. They had a whole table full of books at this price, even Edgar Allen Poe.
Speaking of darker music, I bought the new CD from KMFDM, a German industrial band that I have listened to for years. It’s fast and upbeat, I really like it.
My musical tastes go from one extreme to the other. On one hand I love Celtic and New Age music, and on the other I also love Goth/Alternative/Industrial. There really is no in-between. Maybe these are aspects of the Dark/Light sides of my personality.
I guess that’s all for today. The Magicians is coming on in half an hour and I never miss it.
See you tomorrow,
