At Pure and Blessed Tarot ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality

See ImaginAction in Action!

ImaginAction is now wonderfully out there in the world. The foundations placed and built under that dream were accomplished with the help of 438 rockin’ people out there with the original ImaginAction! And, who knew? ImaginAction has a fraternal twin… ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions.

With ImaginAction 2.0

~ The Unplugged Sessions! ~

What’s different? Excellent question. The original ImaginAction throws you literally hundreds of bones for self-development and to actionably increase your effectiveness to implement your goals and dreams. Those bones are in the form of evocative questions asked in the context of lush immersion pools of artwork, sacred and alive places to nest your dreams, to grow them to fruition.

ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions is literally that. Unplugged, like a band doing a heart-tingling bad-ass acoustic version of one of their great songs. Not rough and raw and unrefined. Full-on heartfelt and gripping. Magnetic. ImaginAction 2.0 is ImaginAction stripped down to only the heart of the matter… Heck, an early McClaren was still a McClaren. Why have a dash when you can just put on a helmet and feel the high octane fun of the foot into the floor?

ImaginAction 2.0 is basically an eSpa all to yourself with ablution pools to dive into and immerse yourself, your ideas. Only 2 things are required. You, and the Immersion Pools eSpa of 66 full-color saturated places of inspiration that ImaginAction provides you. You wanna soak up some goodness?

There are no questions in v2.0, just pure eSpa pools + a fun Intro Adventure Story and some other percs on the way to the eSpa… well, there is 1 question… though only one… and then ALL 66 Constructing the Center immersive ablution pools to dial into and amplify your creativity and imagination and the effectiveness of YOU. Help yourself invest in your goals and dreams to build even more value as you bring them into the real.

SI: 7/2 Serendipity Itinerary

Posting Your Serendipity Itinerary a bit early this week due to the Holiday Weekend on this side of those two Ponds… Plus, looks like something special arriving here on July 4th! Check back and see…

Behind every dark cloud the sun indelibly shines. Don’t wait for it. Grab your umbrella, or better, run out to embrace the rain. Be bigger than your circumstances. It tends to lift your head and heart up together not to be the tallest blade of the grass that is the 1st to get cut… Perspective. It provides you YOUR own perspective… most likely. Just a thought placed on the stacked stone cairn of this week’s SI. May your week be s magical as you make it. May the ground you walk on be as inspirational as the stars in your sky.

Your July 4th, 2020 SI Under a Capricorn Moon

This Week I Put on My Psychic Scuba Gear and Dove over the Liminal Horizon Into Memory Land. Fun Stuff…

And, WHAT a SaWEET Week in Music!

Do you often feel you know before you know? Do you trust that if you do, and/or take your feeling-sense knowing as wise Counsel for your discernment to take under advisement from there? I never recommend being a Yes-Person to psychic contents any more than a Master Gardener watering the garden. Some things come that flow with beauty, others drip in, and others are to crash against the Inner Sea Wall with an indefatigable and unsaid ‘No’ with no words and simply shaking one’s head side to side with eyes-wide-eyebrows-raised in The Look for it to subside and Resubmit As Noted later.

There have been studies that indicate decisions have often mostly likely been presented 10 seconds prior to you “making” them as they surfed over the liminal into consciousness. It’s cool work in neurology and psychology, and I still keep my eyebrows up. That stuff’s a case by case basis, as sometimes Parts come screaming in HOT… Thanks for coming. Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine. So, before I dispense prioritizing your message… what IS your message? We can take it from there.

~ 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 it in the comments. Please do, and by all means self-promote. Add more to the Serendipity Itinerary for people to visit and experience! Hey, some say not to toot your own horn. What?! That’s dafuqin absurd. Somebody’s gotta start the band. It needn’t be superficial or me me me stuff. In fact, that’ll get deleted. Make it the I Am kind of Me to promote You. Then, all good in my book. Self-centered has a center rather than needily needing the center of attention. Be in context here, and by all means promote your work on Serendipity Itineraries. Further fleshed out context with contribution amplifies the depth of expanse of opportunities for people here to explore. Thanks in advance for promoting yourself..

59 seconds to… May the ground you walk on and the steps you take be as inspirational as the stars in your sky…

Here we are. Here we go!

Serendipity Itinerary for July 4th

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. This week they added new items in their Etsy shop. Hmmm… be back in a sec. Uh oh! Do you like going junkin’? DAYum. How ‘bout somewhere where they’ve cleaned the filter and pulled out the treasures for you already? I get it. Love junkin’, finding treasures, though their shop struck a different chord with me this week in that regard. What about immersing in serendipity and only beauty at the same time? What about NO junk, no lesser of two evils, and simply what about neither is less and having to choose between beauty after beauty after… Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

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.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last 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.

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

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.

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.

Wyrd Smythe ~ Logos con carne. Another voice in the interweb wilderness. Thoughtful and expansive and far enough in his experiential application he also has the wicked cool ability to dial in to a sense of humor about it. Sometimes, the humor is separate. No reason to put strips or regs on his alchemy, though. Take a peek… or a portal.

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.

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. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit this week’s postings for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

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.

Before We Get to the Music, This Gem Re-Surfaced from the Library of Alexandria called my Emails. This week I came upon the Solomon’s Mines of my own DRAFT projects parked. LOL. What a wonderful smile and full-boat laughter I got with, Well then, I’ve got some work to do.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230 million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy.

Shifting focus and re-directing scale and side-stepping the clutch double-clutching mid-revving to 6-grand in 5th to … click in the gear-gate (MY Personal Stargate) click click Boom, 6th at 6-grand slid foot touches the floor and BAM I Am One With Recaro Now… YES!

Helix and DNA strands anyone?

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music

This sticks around for another week… at least. LOVE the lyrics… and the vocals and drum work, and the guitar meandering through full frontal though like connective tissue to everything else… Troy rocks it On the drums with smooth intensity. The Tardigrade. How can YOU ake your own laws… remember, if your a cog… Cool. That means you function fluidly and consistently under high heat and pressure without fail… so the gears don’t slip and full-on engagement occurs. What intense places do you sidestep the clutch at 6k without dropping the tranny. Don’t worry if you blow the turbo bypass valve. That just means you’re driving it like it was meant to… over the line into the spec of YOU in Expansive Mode. No button for that. Or, is there?

Seriously, keep yourself safe, though the laughing smile on your mechanic’s face when you get an the oil change and they hook up the car chip to the… is priceless when they step back in to hand you the keys

and, (just smiling and shoulders bobbing silently chuckling like they found Nirvana and aren’t keeping any part of it secret) Dood. ok. Thank you. Just (looking around, no one other than us). Fucking thank you. You are SO driving that car like it was meant to be driven. I ticked some gigs I can’t tell you about… (wadding up my bill and tossing it in the trash). Let me know if this week is more enjoyable than last. I have to take that can out now so I’m here when you come back. 😉

Yes. Yes, it was. Talk about some foot. Thanks, Man!

Reminds me of…

Planet Sandwich Studio version of Tardigrade

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

Bassnectar ~ Nothing Has Beeb Broken

I reached back to find one in particular I hadn’t heard in a while… got sidetracked when the phone rang… email… oh, edit this and that and… email… editing.. email… oh, ok, COOL, I’ll update my Sonos app. Way cool! The Shufle button floated to the top. Clicked. LOL, all my all over the place like an ant moving a mountain a grain of sand at a time untiringly… what I was originally going to go look for from years back? … Perfect. On shuffle, it came on 1st. Maybe Siri and Shuffle have something going on… some wickedly cool strange sounds come from the Kitchen when I deposit my phone in a drawer to lose the eYoke.

OvniMoon Via Axis ~ Galactic Mantra

DO you have Sonos Play One or Sonos Bar? A Marshall stack? Or, neighbors on vacation? Or, just invite them over sop they can’t complain, or they can be sent away of they do.

I suggest… Turn it UP!

Helen Jane Long ~ Through the Dark

New Order ~ Blue Monday Remix 20151

Yes!!

Phantogram ~ Run Run Blood

Legends of the Fall ~ Theme

Blue October ~ She’s My Ride Home

Seether ~ Careless Whisper cover

A River Runs Through It ~ Theme Tune

Halsey ~ Gasoline

Bassnectar ~ Infinite

30 Seconds to Mars ~ Attack

Kasey Musgraves ~ Space Cowboy

Cool story behind this song. I’ll link it when I find it again.

Phantogram ~ Turning Into Stone

The Crystal Method ~ Trip Like I Do

Gladiator ~ The Death of Maximus

Hans Zimmerman & Lisa Gerard ~ Sorrow

Lisa Gerrard & Pieter Bourke~Shadow Magnet

Halford ~ Resurrection

Ovnimoon ~ SatNam for Me, Sat Nam for You

Blue October ~ You Make Me Smile

Thank you for your support, likes, links, comments, and shares.

I’m surprised no Silversun Pickups or Queensryche or Docken came on this week. Oh well, Shuffle is my new friend again. Hail Pandora + Sonos Channels on Shuffle.

Something new is coming to the Shop ImaginAction store this weekend… was

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?

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.

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!!

~ 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.

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!

Blog by Comment ~ Racism & the Mosquito

Comment inspired by Charles C. Earl’s Weblog.

Racism & the Mosquito

Yes!! Yes!!! How do I make the font bigger in a comment? I guess by repetition. YESSSS!!! Yes!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Charles for discerning it to be time for your voice to step up. Much appreciated. We’re all different, like everyone else. All similar, each unique. Maybe no-one is born equal, though we’re all born with equal value as human beings. Rather than equality, shall we make a move towards equanimity?

I’m reminded of of a professor showing up at the Black Belt Tae Kwon Do Class I was instructing in college for P.E. credit — read in: wage theft under the guise of credit completion, honor back then, I didn’t yet know any better at 19. Though, kinda the wrong environment to show up making trouble, though hey, some people are also trained to have a pre-Approved Darwin Award Applications.

I laugh, it was straight out of a Kung Fu Theatre movie with someone coming in the challenge the Master, except here, humorously, with no martial skills… or even a thoughtful demeanor.

In shoes mind you in the dojo, she jumped the knee wall and bolted across the floor towards me spewing all the while with words I won’t repeat here how I needed to remove the 2 black people and 3 Korean people from my class or else!

Smiling, calm as a daisy, though not going down like one, “Madame, this class is based on a system from Korea, and occasionally the way I teach it, from China or from within me. I’m not sure of your geography acumen other than knowing how to get to a fanatical church, so I’ll throw you a bone. Koreans, Chinese, and Africans are closer to this art’s geographical origin than you or me are here. Maybe we should both leave and stop wonderment and curiosity and experience and serendipity and exchange from continuing to poison the world.”

I still smile. She Was SO beautifully conflicted, both wanted to agree and also was in total (alleged) disagreement, because I stood her up with one hand (voice) while the other hand yanked her carpet from under her… though you also saw the check mate on her face. “Hmmmmmpopphhh.” And, she spun, and was towards almost gone. She stopped and turned around before she straddle-moved over the knee wall to which I, “Madame, there are rules that are made to be broken. So, next time you visit, make sure to take off your shoes.” 

 She bolted out as fast as she came in. Guess her fanatics sent the wrong busy-body, certainly not a hostage negotiator. I turned… “Class, can we agree that the last one to get to class locks the door?”

One of my students, ironically 2 Dans higher ranking than me (another story) chimed in, “Mr. Hoggard I thought you said that conflict wasn’t the point, not to pick fights or further them, and you just destroyed her with words. Isn’t that furthering one?”  

I smiled and bowed my head. Looking up…

“I did say that. One part of not picking or allowing fights is… Be peaceful, but know when to let motherf***ers know so they DON’T start in further. I should clarify further about violence. To yes or no it requires thoughtfulness… hmmm. Class, here’s an example, ’Man who have mosquito land on testicles learns very quickly that violence is not the best 1st course of action.‘ That’s how I got rid of her as the mosquito.”

They all laughed, and we got on with class. Though, things like that happening? Unacceptable. Of course it was Texas Bible Belt, Lubbock, 1989-1990. Let’s face it. Teaching a martial arts class, mostly inherently Eastern, that in itself was an academic minority subject to judgments and racism.

Like Lewis Hamilton expressed when asked recently if he thought racism was getting worse: “No, I don’t. WIll Smith said it best. Racism isn’t getting worse. Now, it’s just being filmed.” 

I Will Say It Out Loud…

The George Lynch MURDER

was a modern lynching.

How can you step up in your community?

Soon the whole 10-volume set will be available back in one re-joined work… no more cliffhanger about the ending of the Prescient Remembrance Series…

Help yourself set yourself up for success in how you come across with ImaginAction.

Serendipity Itinerary 06132020

Serendipity Itinerary for 06132020

Reflections (c) 2009 Jordan Hoggard

Buckle up

Brahma Bull Shamanically on the Way

Serendipity Intineraries 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 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 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

First off, it was an intense week. Just turning the music down to take calls or to go into readings or meetings was actually an Admin thing this week, was an actual thing taking time. The more intense it gets for me most often translates directly into the volume level on the Sonos — sometimes… too bad the neighbors are home. It’s ok, though, when I can’t hear them knocking. 🙂 I wonder what this week was like for you?

So, please buckle up. May not be a wild ride, though it’s intended to reflect the rockin’ intensity of the week. Hopefully, I got the word and image and music balance right to tune into to attune the energies to balance and align and sync up with this week’s intensity. This week certainly deserves at least that. It felt like The Chariot upgraded to a bigger engine.

SI Will Be a Little Diff This Week

Playing and working in and dancing with the intensity of this past week, I’m going to engage something different this week. I’m going to utilize a Came to Mind Reading technique (non-related link, serendipity) with each person’s listing below. I’ll place 2 cards and/or images that came to mind for the feel of their blog and messaging — or, their Tarot Birth Cards if I know them.

The 1st card image is intended to be the Primary aspect of the feel. The 2nd card is intended to be an Accentuator to color the tenor of the 1st Primary card/image. Pardon any psychic dyslexia on my part if I reversed your feel, or general inaccuracy if I’m full-on just off base. OFLs — Opportunities For Learning.

What do you feel?

What do you feel about the cards that came to mind for your rockin’ blog?

Call the cards a Sun Primary card with an orbiting Moon card. Only the Blog Owner and you can discern if I missed the boat, and instead got a good swim in the water below.

Of Course

Of course it’s Your Life, Your Way. Your Blog, Your Rules. If you would rather I input your Tarot Birth Cards, I certainly will. Click for the Tarot Birth Card Calculator at The Tarot School in NYC, Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone’s splended, online, Tarot home. Alternately, if you’d rather not be included here at all, certainly let me know in the comments. DO let me know. You won’t be callin yourself out to be excluded in the comments. Instead, you’ll be Sovereign and straight-up owning honesty YOUR way for your best sake. I’ll promptly take you off, as again, Your Blog, Your Rules. Reasons are unreasonable. You are Sovereign in your life and on your blog, your way. Let me know, and as soon as I can get to it, consider it done — will edit this one as well.

Respect is foundational. You’ve most likely spent a wonderful amount of time on your marketing and messaging. I’ll be the last one to dial interference patterns into the splendor of what you’ve built If your presence here feels like it does.

To Be

To be transparent, my Tarot Birth Cards are The Hanged Man~The Empress. Interestingly enough, according to Wald Amberstone, The Hanged Man is The Empress’ son. I not only buy that, it also resonates with the way I build back in and nourish my creative process like a Master Gardener, like in the Reflections image above.

Gardening Reciprocates

Gardening reciprocates, naturally. Great for all involved. My BITCh method creative process was gifted and is ingrained in my texture from my Mom, and is unfortunately the extent of my current gardening. Mamma’s boy?Pardon, while I contain my laughter. We’re now resonant peers. My apple didn’t fall far from the tree, though it’s a great apple. And, I gather she Is able to add some more choice words about how we are each our own. I’m nodding glad that my apple doesn’t have a worm. Nodding glad is mo’ betta than fighting mad. It’s just an apple. That in itself rocks!

To Dial In, I’ll Share This

So, to start off this week’s gig… hmmm what vid of mine will I share?… Cool, Ok, I’ll go with that thought: simple numbers Adding up much like Birth Cards are generated. It’s 06132020 = 6 + 1 + 3 + 2 + 2 = 14 = 1 + 4 = a 5 day. So, I’ll abduce a 5. Sometimes 5s present a problem card for people. I don’t feel there are any bad cards, though, and that’s robustly understandable that Nature of the 5 gets under some peoples’ skin. Depends on how you take it? Depends on how your perspective responds? WHat do you think about the 5s, or 5 in general?

Also, notice the use of abduce above rather than abduction. (Period not italicized, or is it?). No abduction here. Abduction is a bully level of petty controlling behavior based on being afraid rather than fear. There’s plenty of abduce-ing to be experienced here, plenty drawn out and to draw out.

What do you abduce?

How do you draw your creative ideas out?

Or, do they just arrive?

I See 5s as…

I see 5s not as chaos, but as a number of Nature. In fact, THE number of Nature. 9 is the Nin or 9th kanji of Ninjutsu mediation where the concept is Tao, and the color is White and you view through your thumbs-index fingers raised up as a digit-ized circle to focus the Moon in the night sky. Interestingly enough, if you count the segments along the path of your thumb and index finger, 7 each hand, that’s 14 = 1 + 4 = 5, so the 9 of the Nin kanji brings YOUR Nature to form the seamless segue segmented circle of YOU as you swim in the Moon.

3 is the number of the 1st group, the 1st self-supporting structure, and the impetus and/or onset of perceived beauty reified as an externalized gig. Call 3 Beauty-DNA. 7? Oh yeah. 7 is where the shit potentially hits the fan. At 7, you are far enough away from base camp origins in the process so to speak so as to not be able to safely turn back, though you also have not yet reached the false summit of the plateau of 8 where you can safely rest. 7s can rock you. Best to forget endurance and will with the 7s, the snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed much like chaff falling off from wheat in the wind kinda thing and just keep on keepin’ on. You’re not off the mountain until you are. You’re not at a safe pause point until you are. Keep going. Breathe. Drink water if you have it. You’ll get there.

Nothing Ever

Nothing may ever be resolved with a 5. Though, with the perspective that 5 is THE number of Nature and the weather simply is what it is… there’s Justice and straight up owned honesty that, without even the concept of honesty or integrity anywhere. Nature doesn’t need that stuff as it doesn’t lie. Of course it doesn’t tell the truth, either. What is, simply is. What’s the weather like? What’s your Inner Weather like?

And, Nature is… uh hem… so natural, right?! In Nature the concept of facts is also ridiculously ludicrous — though, not to mean discernment and response aren’t warranted. I ask, with Nature, why would there even NEED to be resolution? Instead, there is dynamic experience that yes, has plenty of intereference patterns, though no more than all the earth, trees, flowers, animals and wind on a windy day. Each experience is what you make of it. Is it a crazy-making static-generating wind, or just a good clearing out to freshen the air? I feel 5 is weather incarnate. 5 is honest without fail and without intent, just like Nature. Nature doesn’t have emotions. Nature has weather. Whether you weather your Inner Weather or do something with it or about it, that’s of course your call. What do you feel about 5?

2 Questions

Are you your best Self when naturally aware of your internal weather?

Does that inform you how to be more wise in time in the moment? To continue to build rather than bring you to hit the inner beep beep beep of reverse gear to back up and apologize?

5 of Pentacles Mystereum Tarot Moment

Some people say

Don’t toot your own horn. Seriously?!, shaking my head. Guess they’ve never been on stage or in a band or been on point with their life on the line? Maybe that’s wonderful for them, though that’s as close to alien to me as I know. Again, though, excellent for them as they certainly have a different mode of being and experience to live out. SaWEET! All similar, each unique. Everyone is different, like everyone else.

It’s been an intense week,

and I see that now in how

I’m handling this post. GEEZUS, get on with it, Dood. You just FINALLY got to the beginning! 🙂

so… without further adieu…

Don’t toot your own horn?

DAYum, somebody’s gotta start the band.

Uh 1 a 2 a 1 2 3…

Serendipity Itinerary for June 13th

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

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 come up, though somewhere there’s no need? Like Nature? Yep, me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here 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.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence.

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. Gorgeous watercolors. Hi Mom! She loved 1st bill last week, though suggested that things that stay in one spot stagnate, and to keep the placement organic, more artful. Love it, Mom. Love, Jordan

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?

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 ore words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… Note: some people make trite and puerile attributions to Princess. Inspect your expectations? Remember, a Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting. You might find her in the garden with the succulents. Sometimes rolls that way… intensely.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like 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 here with consistency and structure, and not limited by either.

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

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said.

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.

So, Music This Week?!!

Disturbed. The Sound of Silence

Alejandro Aranda. Audition? More like Debs for Doods. Oh Yah!

Phantogram. When I’m Small

Where’s Reznor Now? — no, not the ceiling heater unit

Q: Not what you expect from Trent? A:Artist;’s Art. Experience…

Nine Inch Nails. Letting Go While Holding On

Different than what you expect from Trent? It’s not Head Like A Hole, though just as good… It’s Trent. Need I say more? Different than you’d expect? Why? It’s Trent! He’s an artiste! Follow his process, don’t expect to stay comfortable. 🙂

NUN WITH A MOTHERF* & *ING GUN

Meg Myers ~ Desire. NSFW, full-on YES!

And, just because (Some Metric next week?)

Silversun Pickups: Circadian Rhythm

Judas Priest. Painkiller

So, Disturbed’s cover of The Sound of Silence CERTAINLY played the BUILD TO A CRESCENDO and resonated into its finale and ROCKED IT, though… …. …. And, the award for best BUILD in a song this week goes to…

Bullet For My Valentine ~ Your Betrayal

Grog say! ::: JORDAN, a Video from 2004?!! Did they even have internet in our caves back then?? How did they shoot the video? Hmmmm. Grog See. Hmmmm. Still no know how still relevant. Hmmm. Is!. Wise AND Grog SAY Hilarious. Grog keep from last week. No questions! Grog say COOL.. Grog go now hunt for dinner! Grog say, can I borrow your phone to call for delivery?

😉

DAYUM. Grog’s getting it!

Underwear Goes Inside the Pants

Texas-Born Waking Up

Beware: Poignant video below, magnanimous splendor of a system.

The Texas Boy vigilante in Me is waking back up. Am I becoming a Prison Abolitionist? Thank you for the name for it, Charles C Earl!

That part of me waking back up from a 17-year Cicada Sleep, I see something in our culture. What is it I see? I see people using shaming behavior systemically under the petty guise of education of what’s right right and (sic) moral.

Dafuq? Lambasting someone for mistakes does not make them work harder to do better to not make them. It drives them to hide their mistakes. How the hell is someone going to be Sovereign with themselves when they have been taught to pay their dues before themself instead of with their work, and have it implied to be slippery-stealthy with their Self even to themselves? Mistakes? Nope, there aren’t any. It’s about experience and OFLs — Opportunities For Learning. Can you powerfully witness someone this week with no words? Just let them go on until they are finished to really feel what they are saying? Just a question if you’d like to give it a run. I’d be curious to see what happens. Disconnection? Connection? Deepening in a more simple and natural and intensely natural way?

I reject the bullshit pause behind the curtains of moral and right puritanical and guilt-based statements. There are not fetishes. There is simply no accounting for taste, and how anyone else and oneself included plays out their life as resolved now. Your whole life brought you right here to now. I’m honored your whole life brought you to this point in my blog. 😉

Heck, isn’t guilt just an upper octave (read in: bottom-feeder, low grade rob-power-from teachers kind of people) form of digested shame that people allow themselves to be influenced by in the 1st place?

Our teachers don’t need to be yoked by having to buy their own supplies. Free them up such the contrary-to-popular-belief-God’s-last-name-isn’t-dammit educational system listens to the teacher rather than the other way around. Similar in medicine versus/with insurance companies? Similar in lots of areas in … pervasive is a word. Enough is enough. This video brought cascades of ablution tingLes and tears when I 1st saw it. Still does as well now, though it is now simply a gardener watering my constitution and resolve. May it resonate and influence you in ways that are important to you as well.

Step Into the Circle

Pheww!! What a great week! Great week to get some amped up and vigorous rockin’ ‘tude In the mix. Love this community I’m discovering and I’m lovin’ it just doin’ it! Love it… 5 words for 2 copyright violations in those last 5 words. Good poets borrow. Great poets steal ~ Jordan Hoggard. Ok, not really. ~ T.S. Eliot. 🙂

What meaningful thing can you abduce, draw out of yourself, this week? Not abduction. Abduce. Be kind to yourself. Things inside might just start to surprise you even more.

Have a Wonderful Week!
