Sexism in Architecture… Julia Morgan’d Take You Down!

Julia Morgan

  1. Yup, the interrogating tensions of creativity accept no substitute or error. 🙂 Nope, not on the list. And, then you found your own sacred combo, and COSMIC SAFE CRACKED.The Architect? Remind me a bit of the Ace of Wands… possibly, I would have done better to pair him up with the Queens of Cups and Wands back then? Neh, I didn’t. Will now, though. 🙂https://jordanhoggard.com/tag/ace-of-wands/?ak_action=reject_mobileReplyLike
    1. Pure & BlessedJordan HoggardI always think he feels Ace of Swordish but now you mention Wands, the way I read A of W is more in keeping. Maybe he’s the Ace of Bunsen burners mixing and tweaking balance of fire and air to get the right result.
      Q of C! I’m sure she’d love it 🤣Reply1Like
  2. Jordan HoggardAs an Architect, I’d go with all of the above + Q of W and + K of Wands + Q of P for QC + Q of W. Ace of W at the tip of his/her Architect’s pencil, then + the rest of every deck available.Maybe we would do well to ask julia Morgan… as other than Jose Plecznic and Imhotep and whoever did (R.A Schwaller DeLubicz’s beloved) the Temple of Luxor at Karnak, she’s my fave Architect. When asked about Frank Lloyd Wright’s public outbursts and way, her contemporary, she simply responded, “Oh he always does that when he’s broke or about to be. I have too much work to have time for that brand of superficial distraction. He’s just marketing as if his life depended on it, because it’s about to. You can tell when he’s about to go broke. He always convinces the bank he needs a new Cord, and then he shows up looking successful and gets those same type of clients. He does appearances. I do reality.” 🙂 dafuqin LOVE her.Ever heard of Casa Grande, the Wm Randolph Hearst mansion? That’s all Julia. 🙂 As sexist as Architecture is, Julia Morgan rocked it beyond the profession’s walls, seismically, 100 years ago… Go figure. In 1908 -1916 her reinforced concrete structures had seriously strong earthquake survival rates
  3. So did her Presence As Architecture. Unfortunately… ever heard of her? Lots of people keep their brilliant head down and change the world for the better. Maybe she’s one?
  4. As an Architect, I’d go with all of the above + Q of W and + K of Wands + Q of P for QC + Q of W. Ace of W at the tip of his/her Architect’s pencil, then + the rest of every deck available. Maybe we would do well to ask julia Morgan… as other than Jose Plecznic and Imhotep and Carlos Scarpa … whoever did (R.A Schwaller DeLubicz’s beloved) the Temple of Luxor at Karnak, she’s my fave Architect.
  5. When asked about Frank Lloyd Wright’s public outbursts and way, her contemporary mind you, she simply responded, “Oh he always does that when he’s broke or about to be. I have too much work to have time for that brand of superficial distraction. He’s just marketing as if his life depended on it, because it’s about to. You can tell when he’s about to go broke. He always convinces the bank he needs a new Cord, and then he shows up looking successful and gets those same type of clients. He does appearances. I do reality.” 
  6. Oh, did I say that before? Guess it deserved repeating. 🙂 dafuqin LOVE her.

In 1908 -1916 her reinforced concrete structures had seriously strong earthquake survival rates. So did her Presence As Architecture. Unfortunately… ever heard of her? Lots of people keep their brilliant head down and change the world for the better. She was certainly one. As she expressed, “I have too much work not to.” Maybe she’s one?🙂 re: FLW?: https://despair.com/products/underachievementhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Morgan

The Solar System DNA Trail

The Solar System DNA Trail

The Solar System DNA Trail as We Move Through the Milky Way

Searching through Draft files yesterday for projects I have in my queue, I found this wonderful GIF that AT Mann sent me in advance of his appearance as a guest on my and Isaac Bradfield’s Inner State Highways TV show on PEN back in 2013 or so. Such a vibrant and wonderful and robustly creative person and guest! He stands as one of my favorite people on the planet.

Enjoy the wingtip vortices trailers coming from each planet and tail vortice from the Sun as our solar system home moves Around the Sun as all move together along our 230 million year orbit around the Milky Way leaving a trail like giant, multi-helix DNA! Bet I’ve never factored that timing into a Chart in an Astro reading. Long term dreams and goals, anyone?

Such a SaWEET visual ephemeris that says, Time? Nah, don’t care much for it. I’m already there. May mean Moira’s running the show with Saturn (Chronos/Kronos) so Chiron can make his own way in the world on his own time..

Enjoy

Solar System & DNA

Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!

SI: 6/27 Serendipity Itinerary

Your June 27th, 2020 SI Under a Libra Moon

Last Weekend & This Week Were One for the Record Books Leading up … to… Wonderfully Intense… Calm? Hmmm… in places… Still intense even there.

Trying to kiss a promise may be easier than smoking hope, though listen to music and read rockin’ poetry instead. Ees Mo Betta.

~ Jordan Hoggard

Serendipity Itineraries is a post series is about sharing my weekly blog field trips, my eExperiences, so that maybe you find some new people who you resonate with, to enjoy and/or follow, and/or simply have a mini-library of places to visit when you feel that cool compulsion to expand your experience.

I notice that on the blogs I resonate with, I often also resonate with who they resonate with. Not always, there’s of course a case by case discernment present. Though, it’s more often than not. Enough to have form-given this weekly gig.

If You

If you have a blog or video or something you’ve produced that you feel to share in this community-building serendipity sandbox, you have my express permission to link to it7 in the comments. Please do, and by all means self-promote. Add more to the Serendipity Itinerary for people to visit and experience!

The Tarot Birth Cards for people and ideas born into the world today 6/27/2020 are the Wheel of Fortune ~ Maqician:

How Cool is THAT?!

What are YOUR Tarot birth cards? Click to find your Tarot Birth Cards here at the Tarot School in NYC. Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone have a great set of offerings and info, in addition to just being rockin’ people!

This Week

The Sun Card

46 seconds to You As Only You Can Be

How are you You as only you can be?

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Serendipity Itinerary for June 27th

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work this week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.

Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all, and there’s always still more as well. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like being in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after. Also, Christina has Armed With Coffee. Variety is the spice of life? There’s definitely some spice and depth here with consistency and structure that is wonderfully not limited by either. I suggest to experience her reading for Cancer this week.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Seriously, do you want genuine and authentic where those two words can meaningfully never need to come up, as when natural there’s certainly no need? Like Nature? Yep. Me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here in the world makes the world a better place.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

Charlotte Heather ~ Soprano. Charlotte and her partner are doing weekly balcony concerts in the UK!

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too! Creative voice in multiple formats. Polymath? Go see.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see!

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens!

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see.

& This Week’s SI Music

Archie Williams~ Losing Everything.

Planet Sandwich Studio version of Tardigrade

Planet Sandwich’s TardiGrade performed live at the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival

Blue October ~ Sway

Halsey ~ Bad In Love

Connection Thief

Connection Thief

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

What wonderful experiences occur when you listen to yourself and consistently and diligently work your natural way with embodied care and attention to your experience within? What wonderful experiences within occur when you do? Is it like amending your own soil?

~ Jordan Hoggard

Thief!

You see, several years back, maybe 10?, No, it was 9. It was 2011 when Schiffer published Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer Tarot deck and 192-page book boxed set. It was the last time I connected with my Dad before he had Parkinson’s, which soon became full boat. We had THAT conversation. It wasn’t about the birds and the bees, though it certainly had to do with Nature… OUR Natures fully in play together.. that wonderful, family alchemy time…

Dad: I don’t buy into all this Tarot and Astrology pseudoscience stuff. You really need to be careful about indulging in that. Do you care about your career as an Architect?

Me: (laughing and laughing and laughing some more to pause… and then laugh some more to the point that he steeped into the ablution immersion pool with…

Dad: Well now Jordan, whatever has tickled you so much?

Me: (coming to an ebb in my laughter for long enough to…) You. You, Dad.

Dad: Well, I wasn’t being funny. This is serious business. I respect this deck thing you’ve created for its consistency of 78 painting in a painting series, though that’s that.

Me: LOL, Dad, maybe not as serious as you know, That is certainly not that.

Dad: Well, what do you mean by that? This IS serious. I care about you. I don’t want you toddling off over these cliffs and mucking up your life.

Me: Well, 1st off, why the affected pause of ‘Well,” every time you try to step up? Secondly, (holding hand palm forward), You’ve had plenty of time Mr. Mentor/Tormentor. You’ve always cared, inside, though you didn’t take it to out here except in word and action. Where’s the feeling filling those two with fuel made of simple courage? So, I will. I will right now. Thirdly, I toddled dafuq off when at 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 I had 13 1/2 and 16 hour major surgeries at the Mayo clinic. You were there. Do you remember the oxygen tent I was in for 10 days the 2nd time? Do you remember them putting me in the “playroom” at night because my screaming nightmares Which usually squeezed out a turd I was so clenched like a human singularity that kept the other patients up? … and, that because of the HVAC balance the heat was NOT on in that room at night which meant thrown out in the cold, alone, all night, every night?

Me: And, finished counting, here’s the deal, Dad. You’re now Emeritus from a 40-year rockin’ career as a Professor of English, Creative writing, Poetry, British Lit, and Greek Tragedy with your precious Reason. Cool. Though, you know what’s cooler than that?

Dad: Well, sounds like I’m about to.

Me: (shaking head at another “Well, … ,”, though shaking it off)(pursed lips and raised eyebrows about to release, though holding for long enough to…) Dad, here’s the dealio. You’re basically a Senator, head of the Senate in fact pretty much at least from the back-room politics perspective, and you and yours stand there in your white robes clean and pressed and enamor yourself over alleged ideas while drunk on Reason. And then, to use your word, “well,” it happens.

Dad: WELL, what’s that? What happens?

Me: Someone asks you about your son, where he is now? What’s he doing? And, you pause in that way where you know that whatever comes after is made up bullshit duck-and-covering for a response by that person because you’ve chastised a thing, though not engaged a thing that they love. And, they, those people, smell it on you.

Dad: ??? Well… , well, I’ll be. How long have you been holding this pot shot?

Me: Nice try, Dad. Though stop playing checkers to my chess. How long? Wrong question. I haven’t been holding it. I’ve been living it. I’ve been living it my whole life up to this point. Here’s the deal. You and your Ancient Greek Reason Senate are there in the city in your safely enclosed and secure amphitheater with your dramaturgical intellectualism. Where’s your son? I’m at this little 40-mile town called Delphi running the place. And, I AM the Oracle. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Maybe you’ve heard of me. It’s not that I am Sovereign. It’s beyond that. Kings have to come ask me when they want to go to war.

I’ve never heard my Dad laugh so hard in such a connectedly earnest way before or after that moment. We connected. We connected in ways that covered all the omissions from both sides in a way where, in that moment, we knew. We knew not father and son. We knew two connected people in the same family. Us!

Then, fucking Parkinson’s began to take him away. I don’t expect that we would have connected much after that moment, wouldn’t need to. Being around someone where you both GET each other? That’s one of the examples of joy of family. No apologies. No explanation. Experiencing things together. He didn’t work that way, though. His support was unfailing, not dutiful, unfailing, and it was present, regardless. Regardless

The experiential, The poetic? Yes. There was a great 20-mile canoe trip we took together over a 3-day weekend. Then, when he waxed up over the top of too much MIND with It’s like you can hear the Ancient Ones speaking from up there in the tall mountain bluffs. I shook my head, could do no other than, DAD! ENOUGH with the simile. It’s not LIKE anything. I WAS listening to the Ancient Ones speaking… until YOU interrupted it!, and just dug a deep slap of my oar back from the front Of the canoe and splashed him… and we both howled laughing together. We’d both smile at the same things for wholly different reasons. We both knew. We both knew how to give each other room, and though oil and water never really cover the divide, we were (are) a solid oil and vinegar vinaigrette together. Just makes the salad better.

You just had to know, though, and play with the non-verbal actions of love rather than the words, though still… The words were there, though… too much I over we. That was/is his way, now struggling to find words.

Fuckin’ Parkinson’s Is stealing my Dad. He’s there. When I’m physically there, he’s not all MIND with conscious hide and seek feelings like before. His eyes speak what his mouth cannot, or as a Stoic, will not allow. Though, that here is almost all gone. That… Here is Gone.

I can’t not cry. Finally. I can’t not cry. It’s been 4 years coming. Not capping the well for 4 years, just that confusion that placates denial when you have already passed that point and come to terms with… that which you can’t as you live through it.

Let it dafuqin flow! The well is deep. Let it dafuqin flow!

Parkinson’s stole my Dad. We’ll unfortunately never have an Oracle or Ancient Ones canoe conversation like those again.

I love you, Dad… Let it dafuqin flow! The well is deep. Let it dafuqin flow.

I love you, Dad

438 THANK YOUs Swimming With the Gemini Moon!!

438 THANK YOUs Swimming With the Gemini Moon!!

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

~ Jordan Hoggard

Thank You!

I Send Out THANK YOUs Swimming with the Gemini Moon Today to 438 people!

Thank You!

Thank You to the 438 people who downloaded ImaginAction when it was available at no charge between May 2nd at 1:21a EST when it was born until it was 1 1/2 months old!

Best to you effectively mining more value and increasing your investment in your lives with ImaginAction! Best to Moira’s blessings more and more informing your internal sense of time and timing!

And, Thank You as well to those who donated value via BuyMeACoffee, shared, liked, commented, or simply stared out the window and smiled!

It brings a big, Abrazos smile to know that in 1 1/2 months 438 people have received the opportunity to benefit from something I created and made real from one of my biggest dreams… at NO CHARGE. 438 people who invest in themselves now have ImaginAction as their personal ally to team up and appreciate further investing in themselves.

What’s that dream you ask?: ImaginAction being completed and exquisitely formatted to make it clear and easy to use and verdant and vibrantly engaging. I also wanted ImaginAction to be inspiring, though that’s a call I have to leave to you.

ImaginAction is now making its way in the world. The foundations placed and built under that dream were accomplished with the help of 438 rockin’ people out there! — and all the shares and likes and comments. Thank you for helping me build value in ImaginAction’s foundation. Now, that part of my dream is realized.

So, baby ImaginAction took its 1st 438 steps out into the world which weren’t so much baby steps as Fool leaps of faith right into 438 peoples’ arms. I guess ImaginAction is already smarter than its dad. I work with a net firmly nailed to the floor. BAM. 🙂 Maybe I can learn something from IT rather than the other way around.

So, Step 1 is WOOT WOOT WOO HOO complete! Girl? Boy? Nope. Neither. The hospital deleted the gender cell on the BC at ImaginAction’s request. I have no need of those glass ceilings. I’m something different altogether. More ablution pools for immersion and questions like an Oracle. Geez Dad Happy Father’s Day! Thanks for making me!!

Hey, when your offspring is born fully formed, they get to call their own shots. No pushback from me there. I’m just proud. Very proud.

Now, ImaginAction wants to travel. lol. Don’t we all right now?!! Now, onto step 2. Now, you have the opportunity to purchase ImaginAction at the new Shop ImaginAction store on my website (this blog) that will automatically send you a link to download YOUR copy! Plop it in your cart, complete your purchase, download, and I’ll look forward to hearing your ImaginAction experiences!

I purchased a couple to tighten up the ordering experience. There is still one piece of the puzzle not automated, so once your order goes through, please be patient. The human hand still has to make one click on my end. It should never take longer than 1/2 a day, and until I solve the fully automated part, I’m making a habit of periodically checking.

Plus, NOW I’ll get to putting together the ImaginAction family of offerings over the next several months. I’ll make sure to announce them on my posts once I’ve brought them to life.

Thank you Everyone for your support. It’s been very fulfilling to have received so many accolades and positive comments for ImaginAction. I’m full-on digging the blog world community I came back to after 5 years.

Thank You for Dream Foundation Complete!

Thank You for Investing in Yourself!

Thank You!,

Jordan

Happy Dad’s Day to all you Pops out there!

Scry Your Copy of ImaginAction Without Cards. ADD them to amplify the experience even more. Cards, charms, lots, runes. What’s your fave go-to divination tool?

Yes, seriously. It was the 1st comment someone else had when I had them take a look at the ultrasound so to speak right before ImaginAction was born. No cards required, you only need yourself. Get yours and see for yourself. I’ll SO look forward to YOUR ImaginAction experiences!

ImaginAction. No Cards Required

Well, one card is required. YOU!

ImaginAction is a very portable divination method like an App for the imagination, nourishment to amend the soil of your Soul Gardener. Have the Pdf on your phone, your iPad or tablet. Whatever your device, you’ll always have the tools wherever you are. Literally, no divination tools other than yourself are required. Though, the adventure and experience do deepen when you also pour in your cards, runes, charms, lots in to the mix.

I’m resonating in how wonderful people are receiving ImaginAction, and letting me know! Thank you!

Invest in yourself. I hear it lasts a lifetime.

Your June 20th, 2020 SI

Buckle up & Breathe

This Week Was One for the Record Books Leading up to This Weekend Which Is Just as Much So

Serendipity Itineraries is a post series is about sharing my weekly blog field trips, my eExperiences, so that maybe you find some new people who you resonate with, to enjoy and/or follow, and/or simply have a mini-library of places to visit to expand your experience. Heck, it’s also to build some epic spirals of healthy giving and receiving in community. I noticed that on the blogs I resonate with, I often also resonate with who they resonate with. So, to strike more resonant chords in this world along that same vein… Welcome to this week’s Serendipity Itinerary where…

I Share

I share the stacked stone cairn trailheads, links to others’ blogs, of paths I’ve experienced over the past week. There are people I follow, new people and places I’ve found, and sometimes something or someone featured in the roster just because a topic or person came to mind. Reasons are unreasonable here, just the way I like it. The Now comes from our whole life up to this point… and, to revise Ricky, Lucy, there’s no ‘splainin‘ to do. Enjoy this week’s experiential menu.

If You

If you have a blog or video or something you’ve produced that you feel to share in this community-building serendipity sandbox, you have my express permission to link to it in the comments. Please do, and by all means self-promote. Add more to the Serendipity Itinerary for people to visit and experience!

This Week

Please buckle up for music balance scored to sync up with this week’s character. This week chords were struck to resonate in many areas for me, and you’ll see what occurred over the coming weeks… maybe even one of them later today.

The

The Tarot Birth Cards for people and ideas born into the world today are:

How Cool is THAT?!

Those are my Tarot Birth Cards as well! Will be saWEET chords struck to resonate if one of my new gigs is re-born today. If not, then cool, this was.

This Week

I’ll add Some royalty as a visual orchestra in chorus with the Music Section.

Of Course

Of course Your Blog, Your Rules. Reasons are unreasonable. You are Sovereign in your life and on your blog, your way. So, let me know if you want to be presented differently, or not at all. You’ve most likely spent a wonderful amount of time on your content and presentation and marketing and messaging. I’ll be the last one to dial interference patterns into that. Let me know. Otherwise, I appreciate you in this mini-epic-spiral-arabesque-circular-branch of community on the Tree of the world. Thanks much for being here and visiting.

Ok

I’ll toot my own horn to start the band.

The Sun Card

46 seconds to You As Only You Can Be

As Above, So Below. How do you root? How do you reach? Born to see and having developed your clarity of vision in just your particular way…

How are you You as only you can be?

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Serendipity Itinerary for June 20th

Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all, and there’s always still more as well. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like being in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after. Also, Christina has Armed With Coffee. Variety is the spice of life? There’s definitely some spice and depth here with consistency and structure that is wonderfully not limited by either. I suggest to experience her reading for Cancer this week.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Seriously, do you want genuine and authentic where those two words can meaningfully never need to come up, as when natural there’s certainly no need? Like Nature? Yep. Me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here in the world makes the world a better place.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. Please welcome Naima to the community. It’s a pleasure to have her here. She may have just started on her blog path, though she’s no novice. It’s my impression that her whole life in its entirety up to now brought her to this point. She reminds me of white belts in the black belt class I taught years back who came in as THEMSELF and didn’t cow. I’d start them there to insure they were immersed in examples without bad habits from the start, and to make sure they didn’t ballast-drop their life up to that point so they’d come in with THEMSELF and progress FROM there rather than some feigned I have to start over perspective. Again, please visit her site to see what she’s about. In that regards her words will be better than mine. Here, you’re getting one perspective, mine, which is simply a description and implied invite. There, on her site you’ll have the perspective of directly engaging with her to see for yourself. Enjoy.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? Those are for annoying know-it-alls. Check out Bonnie’s site for her way. She’s certainly got one that I resonate with.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity? Possibly. Depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. It’s not that I see the light coming from the dark, or the shadows coloring the light. I see a chthonic numinosity in her words in her poetry that is akin to stained glass. Regardless of the color or light or dark of the panes (verses), the leading between each of them is interstice inclusive of Other. Stained glass in words. It’s been said that the stained glass in cathedrals was to express the voice of God/Divine in light. Hey, with my alchemist’s bents I might be a little biased about the leading. Oh wait. That’s not bias. That’s taste, and there’s no accounting for that. Well worth the visit.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

Charlotte Heather ~ Soprano. Charlotte and her partner are doing weekly balcony concerts in the UK!

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too! Creative voice in multiple formats. Polymath? Go see.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see!

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens!

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see.

SUCH a Great Week in Music! Made all the better by…

my Sonos Play One speaker. It’s like having the support of a Marshall stack behind you that’s the size of a canteloupe. Such an amazing piece of wireless music tech. Deeply crystal clear robust sound quality. I love music, and I love quality. Both together? That sounds like a description of beauty. Yup, music is good. Great music is ambrosia. Like a coffee or beer or red wine that… Well, I can’t see light through it, so that’s a good start.

What A

What a smorgasbord(g) of a week in music. It felt like the wonderful feeling up running up and down the gears in my Audi TTS back in 2001. Tach-ing up kelping the clutch for some shifts to be seamless segues, side-stepping the clutch on others for wonderfully intentional catapult-launches … into the brakes riding rails into turns, rockets ON at apogee and I was one with the seat. En-Vig-Or-Ating. Fun stuff G-forces are.

Rather Than

Rather than the Dalai Lama Lama being his humorous self pranking at a burger joint asking them to make him one with everything, I’ll take being merged into a Recaro baseball leather stitching seat when side-stepping the clutch at 4,500 rpm. And, they’re off! Heck, the 12 Bose speakers in that tiny little cockpit…Splendor in clear and up-there Db levels is a solid start, too, and one to keep the juices flowing.

I Missed

I missed the exquisite experience of that car this week. Sold it back in late 2001. It just kind of wandered back into my mind Monday morning like it was high noon and it had some words for the Sheriff in town. I nodded to it and YES! You get no pushback from me on that. Count me in!

So

So, this week while working and doing other things, instead of missing my TTS, I didn’t waste trouble. I ran the Sonos up and down the gears to fill the spaces with that feeling. I hope you like the everywhere of scales of raising. Super high, super low, super intense, super calm. So, here’s your music supermarket for this week. Not many will groove with them all, though I hope you find a treasure or two.

Normally

Normally, I don’t play Top Bill or Top Gun on the music section. Though, this week… this week there wasn’t even a decision about it. I just started nodding Yes before the thought even presented — there are neurological studies about prescience being the ability to clearly access ideas and thoughts fully in that 10 seconds before they consciously present where they’ve already been there hidden on their way surfing the bleeding edge of that liminal horizon inside as they reify into consciousness — my words not those expressed in the linked article.

The brain makes decisions to serve up to our discretion and discernment before we even know it? Another story for another time, I’ll simply stack stones like a cairn at a trailhead by linking this sentence.

Back to the Music

This week

This week I suggest to bring your racing gloves and heart and wits and wisdom and tissues and yoga/meditation/tatami mat and comfy chair and dancing shoes if you prefer to listen to music while you’re moving around… yup, especially bring the tissues.

Here’s SI’s Week In Music. Beautiful kinds of links that don’t need to be fixed. Oh, before we start in to the music, I have to say a sociologically important observation occurred this week that I found intrinsically important to share to stop this flagrant and blatant abuse not setting children up for success:

I really think porn does a great disservice to our kids’ expectations of how things work in the real world. I mean, seriously! For example: it vastly and unreasonably exaggerates how quickly a plumber will actually get to your house after you call them. We really should be conscious about educating the kiddos so they are wise to the ways of the world doncha think? Teach them how to inspect their expectations so they can re-set as required to keep evolving without deflation. Agreed?

~ Public Service Message from ImaginAction overheard who knows where

Maybe This Is a Better Message for the Kiddos

So, onto it, on to Top Bill! Archie!

SI Top Bill ~ Archie Williams

Archie Williams~ Losing Everything.

ImaginAction’s 1st Two Reviews Came When Swimming With the Gemini Moon!

ImaginAction’s 1st Two Reviews Came When Swimming With the Gemini Moon!

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

What wonderful experiences occur when you listen to yourself and consistently and diligently work your natural way with embodied care and attention to your experience within? What wonderful experiences within occur when you do? Is it like amending your own soil?

~ Jordan Hoggard

Thank You!

Thank You With the Gemini Moon Today to 438 people!

Thank You to the 438 people who downloaded ImaginAction when it was available at no charge between May 2nd at 1:21a EST when it was born until it was 1 1/2 months old!

2nd Review

ImaginAction is pain free, effective Self help. The lazy student’s fast track to great results. No wordy waffle to wade through, just beautiful pools of colour to sink into… Portals into the greatest story ever told. No! Not that one! An even better one! Your story! A discovery of who you are, of who you can be when you claim your own power.

~Eda Ryven

Best to you effectively mining more value and increasing your investment in your lives with ImaginAction! Best to Moira’s blessings more and more informing your internal sense of time and timing!

And, Thank You as well to those who donated value via BuyMeACoffee, shared, liked, commented, or simply stared out the window and smiled!

It brings a big, Abrazos smile to know that in 1 1/2 months 438 people have received the opportunity to benefit from something I created and made real from one of my biggest dreams… at NO CHARGE. 438 people who invest in themselves now have ImaginAction as their personal ally to team up and appreciate further investing in themselves.

What’s that dream you ask?: ImaginAction being completed and exquisitely formatted to make it clear and easy to use and verdant and vibrantly engaging. I also wanted ImaginAction to be inspiring, though that’s a call I have to leave to you.

ImaginAction is now making its way in the world. The foundations placed and built under that dream were accomplished with the help of 438 rockin’ people out there! — and all the shares and likes and comments. Thank you for helping me build value in ImaginAction’s foundation. Now, that part of my dream is realized.

So, baby ImaginAction took its 1st 438 steps out into the world which weren’t so much baby steps as Fool leaps of faith right into 438 peoples’ arms. I guess ImaginAction is already smarter than its dad. I work with a net firmly nailed to the floor. BAM. 🙂 Maybe I can learn something from IT rather than the other way around.

So, Step 1 is WOOT WOOT WOO HOO complete! Girl? Boy? Nope. Neither. The hospital deleted the gender cell on the BC at ImaginAction’s request. I have no need of those glass ceilings. I’m something different altogether. More ablution pools for immersion and questions like an Oracle. Geez Dad Happy Father’s Day! Thanks for making me!!

Hey, when your offspring is born fully formed, they get to call their own shots. No pushback from me there. I’m just proud. Very proud.

Now, ImaginAction wants to travel. lol. Don’t we all right now?!! Now, onto step 2. Now, you have the opportunity to purchase ImaginAction at the new Shop ImaginAction store on my website (this blog) that will automatically send you a link to download YOUR copy! Plop it in your cart, complete your purchase, download, and I’ll look forward to hearing your ImaginAction experiences!

I purchased a couple to tighten up the ordering experience. There is still one piece of the puzzle not automated, so once your order goes through, please be patient. The human hand still has to make one click on my end. It should never take longer than 1/2 a day, and until I solve the fully automated part, I’m making a habit of periodically checking.

Plus, NOW I’ll get to putting together the ImaginAction family of offerings over the next several months. I’ll make sure to announce them on my posts once I’ve brought them to life.

Thank you Everyone for your support. It’s been very fulfilling to have received so many accolades and positive comments for ImaginAction. I’m full-on digging the blog world community I came back to after 5 years.

Thank You for Dream Foundation Complete!

Thank You In Advance Investing in Yourself!

Thank You!,

Jordan

Scry Your Copy of ImaginAction Without Cards. Simply Gaze Into It

Yes, seriously. It was the 1st comment someone else had when I had them take a look at the ultrasound so to speak right before ImaginAction was born. No cards required, you only need yourself.

1st Informal Review

Jordan! What have you done here? No fair! I opened up ImaginAction and was captivated in the Creation Story. I always jump ahead. You know that. So, why didn’t I. I as captivated! The Creation Story. What a story so wonderfully told. Ok, THEN I finally jumped ahead. Instructions? Leap-frogged right over those. Nah, who needs ’em? Honestly, though, I came back to them after. Everything has such a magnetic pull without tugging. Just natural.

Before I knew it I had nestled into a spread, read one of the questions, and something happened. These questions aren’t just deep. They’re easy to go deep with. But, something had happened… Jordan, what have you done here? How did you do this?!! And, I’m so glad you did! Before I knew it was I was doing a reading… with only the ImaginAction spread and with NO cards!

When I finished and looked up, I saw my cards on my reading table untouched and on the ready. I never even thought to use them. I just so easily immersed into the ablution of ALL you’ve done here. This is WONDERFUL! Just WONDERFUL!

I do confess, I wanted a second helping. So, I lovingly reached over to my cards with “You’ve gotta see this.” Did my shuffle up ritual, and OH MY! Thank you Thank you. The 2nd reading was amplified in such depthful and wonderfully meaningful ways. My cards were like kids jumping into the pool with these luscious pools of art. Just those in themselves… Wow. So YES this is, Jordan. Thank you. You’ve really outdone yourself this time. ImaginAction is… Yum, yes. This is like chocolate. A little’s good, though, you know….I can’t wait for people to use this.

~ Eda Ryven

You may not even need cards. Or, cards/tools/charms/lots/runes. You may experience being able to scry into the artwork as you immerse yourself in the ablution sanctuaries of the questions in each of the 78 full-color Life Mapping spreads without ever pulling a single Tarot or Oracle or Lenormand cards at all.

ImaginAction. No Cards Required

Well, one card is required. YOU!

ImaginAction is a very portable divination method like an App for the imagination, nourishment to amend the soil of your Soul Gardener. Have the Pdf on your phone, your iPad or tablet. Whatever your device, you’ll always have the tools wherever you are. Literally, no divination tools other than yourself are required. Though, the adventure and experience do deepen when you also pour in your cards, runes, charms, lots in to the mix.

Fold your go-to divination tools into ImaginAction like egg whites whisked up just so to make your own divination soufflé. OH BOY, NO you say? A souffle requires SO much prep work, and you’re hungry now? Cool, you want it easy? Excellent. These spreads make for readings like those times in your life, with artwork or poetry and/or something you said just arrived fully formed… like a fave painting that took ONE afternoon. Nope, that painting didn’t take four hours. It took your whole life up to that point.

I’m resonating in how wonderful people are receiving ImaginAction, and letting e know! Thank you!

How Many Questions Are In It?

78 full color, original Divination spreads times how many Questions? 3 or 4 at each spread at least. Some have more card positions, some have less. Let’s just say… a lot of them as that clocks in at 234 at 3 per… uh, more than that. Possibly a lifetime of them? Though, it’s not about how many questions it’s chock full of. It’s about what these questions do, what they help people build for themselves.

Useful and robust clarity that was conceived when I allowed myself to commune with and be inspired by my own artwork. Not in an ego pat myself on the back way, in an If art could speak English (or your 1st language), what kind of spread would it tell me it was? What’s one of this painting’s messages? Wow! That really started something in me…

… like Monty Python and Carl Jung and Julia Morgan and Anais Nin met Larry Leprise’s funeral prep. Who’s Larry Leprise you ask? Oh, he’s the inventor of the Hokey Pokey dance. You see, after Larry passed, his body had been properly and sacredly prepped and dressed, made ready for the coffin and the next journey. They put his left foot in… and OH BOY that’s when the trouble started!

What Do You Receive for $3.90 USD?, for the Price of a Coffee?

Pretty much a self-refilling cup comprised of A 103-page Including cover download pdf including. All original artwork. All original questions. There is a Creation Story, and a Super easy How-To Chapter… that you might not need as this system is pretty Mac-ish directly plug and play. You know, Super Easy. So easy it gets a cape kind of easy. Also, ImaginAction‘s How-To section will… well, you’re life, you’re way… I’ll wait to hear on that. And, the heart of the system pulses life through 78 full-color, 8 1/2 x 11 immersive divination spreads. What will you get from it. Well, you’ll just have to crack open the geode and see.

Do full and focused attention and immersion like meditation birth ablution?

Do you value ablution?

What color will your cape be? Or, are you like Cat Woman who needs no cape?

Invest in yourself. I hear it lasts a lifetime.

What Cornerstone In Life Do You Brace Against?

As If

I’ve lived my life as if my life depended on it, in the perpetual present. I value my experiences, regardless. They have all together brought me to where I am now. No regrets. No mistakes. All OFLs.

My mistakes are all OFLs.

Every. Single. One. They each contributed to where I’ve arrived today.

OFLs

The greatest fear for success should not be failure. It should Be succeeding at something that doesn’t matter.

~ Francis Chan

Proceed as if success is inevitable.

~ Unknown

My process of being naturally comfortable with the not-knowing while getting things done? Maybe it’s due to having almost died on the mountain once, twice, three times? Maybe, it’s also due to a life of welcoming experience over worry. I become more connected to Self and Others, and feel more strongly, feel more clearly the older I get.

And, not by a numbing where I just ignore intense gigs because my awareness or boundaries have eroded, or I’ve simply become accustomed to them Where the blush is off the rose. In fact I notice that I respond or don’t more now.  I can also thank taking the long road home with 3+ years of bi-weekly Brainspotting in my late 40s certainly didn’t hurt.

Someone Recently Asked

I love that someone recently asked me about my 5+ year radio silence. DOOD, what DID you do. you’re so clear now like you really love what you’re dong, AND we can all share in that as well. You were brilliant before, though at times hard to follow as you’d paint the WHOLE picture at once. Yup, YOU just saw it and felt it, though keeping up with your revs and where you were going was exhausting, and actually almost impossible. Your simple steps were leaps of faith for me, and I’m no Evil Knievel. Understood, you were thinking and feeling out loud, though now I’m resonating with what you’re doing, clearly! Glad to have you back! And, more so, glad you have a more aware clarity of what you are doing in a way you can express it to us! Thank you!

I’ve lived my life as if my life depended on it, as those 3 times it certainly did.

The 3rd One

On the 3rd one — a short time after, me still swimming in the experience still wet behind the ears so to speak from it  — i paused. I felt something stir deep within me that rose to the surface like Poseidon rising up through my Natal 10th House Neptune Mercury conjunction. My head popped up as if a long lost friend suddenly appeared as if to continue a conversation interrupted years ago.

Yes?, I asked. The message response coming back…

Yes. Yes, indeed, Jordan. Yes, keep that. It’s yours.

When? October 1999. Where? Mt Democrat, a 14er near Breckinridge, CO. I kept the triangular piece of basalt I found when sitting on the backside cornice over the scree field when Sand-aiding my cuts — like Bandaids, except with sand — kept it in my pocket daily for 5 years.

And, a Wonderful Person

And, a wonderful person heard the story, and the cloister experience of near death and opening to it to live that I had on the mountain. And, about my rock I carried in my pocket for 5 years, both Linus Blanket and sacred talisman. She asked, Will you entrust your memory rock to me for a while? No certainty of timeframe, open ended, simply entrust it to me for a while? I will of course take very good care of it. Your story inspired an idea, a grand one really. Will you send it to me to hold for you for a while? I feel it has inspired me to grow something for you in my Soul Garden.

My watercolor paintings put with what I received are from my Constructing the Center series from 1993-1995. I found my rock on the top of Mt Democrat in 1999. Sent my rock to her in early summer 2009. And, late summer 2009, a curious box arrived via UPS.Why does this feel so important? Hey, you’re on the covered porch in this turn-of-the-century bungalow house you live in. Though, come in fully. Come in out of the rain. It wasn’t raining. This intensely pivotal experience had started.

Return, Re-Surfacing

My rock had been returned as she expressed it would, though differently. Something else was re-surfacing. A card wonderfully penned, deckled edge card lay on top of red silk, Lilac-Carmine-touch of Carmenere red silk. On it, deceptively simply words…

Yes! This had not simply been a Nanny over the summer for my rock, or a field trip for it, or for me to release it to more fully open. I opened the box. No annoying packing peanuts. Packaging of sheer Carmenere-Lilac silk. on top of red silk, Lilac-Carmine-touch of Carmenere red silk. On Top of the silk lay a deckled edge 140-pound watercolor card. No envelope, pre-opened. Simply the card. Wonderfully penned with care and attention and flow were these words

Your story inspired an idea, a grand one really.

Enjoy the unfolding.

Yes!

Lifting the folds open carefully, lovingly lifting, undulating in a slow kelping rhythm of unfolding sacred treasure. Unfolding, one discovery-strata of silk fold after another. Unfolding. Kelping, unfolding. And, revealing…

There it was!

My Eyebrows Lifted

My eyebrows lifted to give room to my brightening eyes’ amazement. I may have well knocked a portal through the ceiling in my office to provide room for what was happening. There It was. My rock. My equilateral triangle, basalt talisman rock. Though, it came home, RIDING it’s own home! It now lived as the centerpiece talisman on an amazing wand!

I have such gratitude for that moment. Such gratitude. I cherish that experience. I cherish the 2-way street of not-knowing and courage that led to it. I cherish what it means for someone to reach out like that. I cherish that my experience inspired another. I cherish my not-knowing And a courage to let go of the Linus Blanket of my basalt talisman… and send it, like sending it off to finishing school.

To Put It Lightly

To put it lightly, I’ll tell ya, I sent it after quite a bit of internal tug-o-war.

In letting go, the past transcended past what I typically consider being way beyond My levels of acceptable risk. They’re high in the 1st place, though I Fooled from start to finish, as did she. I trusted that the ground would rise up to support my every step in unknown territory, trusted her at her word and trusted the not-knowing.

The Internal Civil War Ended

The internal civil war ended when a thought-feeling washed over me. I wasn’t letting go of my basalt talisman. I wasn’t letting go of one of the most intense experiences of my life. The experience was finally integrating, and sending of my rock was an Initiation. I wasn’t letting go of my rock. I was sending it to a Master Soul Gardener, to naturalize it in its own Soul Garden of a wand.

Though, no

Though, no amount of wisdom or foresight or clarity of vision Or prescience or prescient remembrance would have ever prepared me for what was lovingly nestled in the soil folds inside that sacred, cardboard geode box.

What Happened?

What happened? Beyond my wildest dreams is what happened. Something happened that I neither expected nor could have fathomed. What happened I cherish to this day, gather I always will. What happened was beyond sending my rock. What happened was I received, fully. I received, and opened more than just that cardboard geode that arrived on my doorstep.

I lifted my rock, now fully alive and living on a wonderful and majestic and powerful wand from the geode seed of its box. I lifted it from the grand idea that had occurred prior to its creation, prior to its creation, prior to its making, prior to its growing its soul out of another’s Soul Garden. Now, it lived, embraced in my hands. Now, it was my turn to get on my way right there with my own Soul Garden Ally right there in my hands in my Soul Garden.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden
