So, I sat down to shuffle the cards and pull a reading. I shuffle first by the traditional riffle method and then the underhand method and wait until random cards fall or stick out of the deck. The cards are pretty well mixed in. And even so, I got the three cards from yesterday's reading. … Continue reading Windstorm Bop
Night is falling, the western sky outside my window shows the silhouettes of trees, the pale glow of pink and orange rising into the pale pastel blues of the high desert evening sky. The winds are high; the pinon pines and junipers wave their branches in homage to the currents of air. Candles have been … Continue reading Shabbos Oracle: Ease
There are very few things that 'get' me the way that lies do. I understand little white lies that do no harm and ease your life and the lives of others. The key word here is 'little'. Of no consequence. But it seems that lies are a big commodity right now both in the larger, … Continue reading Lies

We last saw Death in White Horses as it left the young woman by the shores of her lake to ponder her future. Death was troubled.

When I was a child, under seven certainly, I did not want to go home with my parents after a visit to my dad's parents. I was so clear about "I don't wanna!" that I would hide under their bed. Way in the back so no one could get at me from either side. Many … Continue reading I Don’t Wanna!
