It's been a while...

It has been a long time since my last post, and I felt it was time for an update.  I have been taking a hiatus from tarot readings and my blog to focus on school and a new career.  During the past two years I earned my Associates Degree in Environmental Studies, and got a job at an outstanding local environmental organization that I love working at.  I am still in school part-time working towards my Master's Degree in Environmental Science.  It is so fulfilling and an honor to be working to help our Mother Earth. With the writing that I do between work and school, my writing energy is quite drained which is why I have not been posting much since starting this chapter of my life.

Last weekend I attended Convocation. It was so nice to be with such a large group of spiritually like-minded folks. I enjoyed the lectures, especially Ellen Dugan, who is honest, funny, and intelligent.  I admire her confidence and have much respect for her. I would highly recommend her books if you have not read them, and if you have an opportunity to see her speak definitely do so.

While at Convocation I picked up a new tarot deck, The Sherlock Holmes Tarot.  My husband is a Sherlock Holmes fan, and I thought it would be fun for us to share this deck together.

I also got a beautiful labradorite necklace. Labradorite is one of my favorite stones, I usually have one close by.

That's all I have for now, but I will leave you with this quote:

"Stay close to nature, it will never fail you." - Frank Lloyd Wright

Be well!
