Detours and Diversions

This morning was one of those mornings where nothing went to plan. The sort of morning that bothers some people but which I strangely enjoy. I like that my daily routine is only semi-routine with lots of room for twists and turns and mini grand adventures. It amuses me how you can go completely off […]

Back to Basics

I thought that this November would finally be the November where I sat down to write that novel… For as long as I can remember, I’ve had people tell me that I should write a book… And currently sat in draft are a few opening sentences and a list of phrases that amuse me. Words […]

Wasting Time

Often of an evening, I pick up people that I’ve dropped off in the morning and they ask me – Karen, what sort have day have you had? I invariably reply that it’s either been good or great, which then leads to the further question of – Oh, so what did you do? Now some […]

Inside a broken box

Sunday morning, I woke exhausted from a dream that was strange even by my standards… At some point the dream turned lucid, the me inside the dream taking care to notice and remember the symbols I saw so as not to forget them on waking… The me outside of the dream knew it was time […]

When I first looked at today’s waxing, I was struck by what looks like an ethereal figure, radiating light… I asked myself the question – Is that some kind of guide? Who is that..? As I held that thought in mind, with my inner vision I could clearly see an image from the Orphaned Oracle… […]

I guess the first thing that strikes me about today’s waxing is the complete shift in energy… Yesterday’s image spoke of closing off chapters… Of doors closing so other doors can open. Today’s image comes swimming in like salmon heading upstream… Everything feels to have changed from what has come before… New colours and new […]

I look at today’s waxing and see many things relating to a fledgling project… It’s very much under wraps at present, a skeleton in place, muscles gathering in another place… Conversations unfolding as to how the pieces fit together… Creativity stirring but I’ll not say more as this fledgling is nowhere near ready to fly […]

Today’s waxing left me with a conundrum… I found myself rich in thoughts on a day when I’m time poor… Hmm… Should I roll it over to tomorrow or should I find a way to work more quickly today? I looked at the blank white space… I glanced my eyes around the room… My line […]

Today’s waxing opened up a conversation with Odin… admittedly, I didn’t see him at first. Initially, I was drawn into the cabbage like shape and drifting in idle thoughts trying to decide whether those lines looked like the veins in a placenta or more like an evolutionary tree of life… thinking about how shapes in […]

Waxtober 15

Looking at today’s waxing, the first thing I see is a pencil sharpener and pencil shavings. I guess it’s an echo of the amount of time I’ve been sat at my desk over the last couple months, making edits and tweaks. And whilst not actually using a pencil, it is fair to say that I’ve […]
