Cards: 10 of Cups

I recently had family visiting, hence my writing absence. The visit was welcome and expected but nonetheless exhausting, fitting as I am going to be closing the suit of cups with this post.

The two ofContinue reading “Cards: 2 of cups”

Cards: Ace of Cups

Heavy shifting and big transitions have been underway in my life recently. It seems fitting I initiate this new foray into another suit with the Ace of Cups.
