Today, I am .....

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

I am......

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

April in Texas

Well, we had snow for Easter in parts of Texas. My grands in Belton made a snowman on Easter sunday.

I'm thinking about what to do with my yard this spring and summer - have let it get away from me. It looks like a wild pasture right now. This is what I'd like it to look like. This picture is from the Home and Gardens website. This would take a lot of work and $$$, but I may do it. More power to me!

Texas Independence Day

No longer openly celebrated in Texas (not politically correct for some reason), March 2nd is Texas Independence Day. This day celebrates our war-worn freedom from Mexico in 1836, which marked the beginning of Texas' nine-year stint as a sovereign nation before it became part of the United States of America.

Wow, I wonder what happened?!! Sir, can you answer that question?
