Thank you, tamster! Yeah, the Renaissance Soul book by Lobenstine REALLY helped me come to terms with my varied interests. Sadly, the author--Margaret Lobenstine--died in 2015. Another great author for this niche was Barbara Sher, who called Ren Souls "Scanners"; I have her books, too. She passed a few months ago. Both ladies were so helpful for me coming to terms with who I am--and why I can't (and won't) stick to "just" one thing (like some). :o)

On Twitter, Stephen Langlois asked: I’m a talented writer, but am rarely published. Am never solicited. My book has been rejected by nearly every publisher I know of. When I do publish, no more than 10-15 people read my work. With each rejection, my art brings me less joy. Legit... Continue reading

After my neighbor (who just happens to be my former 11th grade English teacher!) dropped off homemade strawberry jam yesterday morning--"just to spread joy", she said--I realized just how needed joy spreading is during these challenging times. ❀ So I started a new Facebook page and will be giving away...

Quick: What's the difference between a maze and a labyrinth? ::plays Jeopardy! theme song:: For one, mazes have dead ends--but labyrinths have one way in and one way out. The former is frustrating, the latter is meditative. When I was in High School (over 30 years ago... *wince*), inspiring English... Continue reading

I am so sorry you had this happen to you, too, Andrea. Did you happen to use PayPal? They're really good about rectifying sales. You could even report this guy as a repeat thief. Thanks for stopping by and take care. -- Janet
Tamster, that's an interesting point about those of who grew up "analog" may fare better during these times (and we'd def fare better should there be an internet outage!) πŸ™‚ So many have substituted screen time for tactile/physical hobbies and time in/with nature, that they'd likely feel lost during a web blackout. I'm glad my post offered some comfort. Totally my intention. ❀ Thanks for taking the time to comment!
Those with strong Hermit archetypes have already been self-isolating. In fact, self-quarantine is a natural state of being. The Hermit goes it alone, seeking knowledge--and trusting that his next step is lit by destiny. This energy is comfortable by itself, not needing the company of others to entertain, distract or...

In the mid-1300s, the Bubonic Plague--aka "The Black Death"--was the most deadly disease outbreak in human history, decimating 1/3 of the European population. The sick, dying and dead lined the streets. The poor and rich alike were infected--including doctors and nurses. Although the contagion struck fear in the hearts of... Continue reading

No longer the domain of germophobes--especially with the descent of COVID-19, aka coronavirus--hand sanitizers are now a part of best practices when it comes to protecting yourself against viruses, bacteria and germs (along with frequent hand washing). With many stores running out of hand sanitizer, DIYers are turning to natural... Continue reading

As much as I love Nirvana, I think music started to go downhill after grunge. And the downfall of Napster. The Industrial Music Complex (πŸ˜‚) churns out mediocrity; everything sounds the same. Cynical, obectifying, violent and materialistic lyrics are SO lowest-common-denominator (and chakras).😝
Agree on all counts. :o) You know, there's a difference between cooks who follow recipes to the ounce--an innovative chefs who know the ingredients so well, they create marvels on a plate. I think you know what kitchen you and I are in... πŸ˜‰
I love 60s music (even though I wasn't born until 1970). Some of the music I was listening to as I formulated my Hippie Blends: And "our song": I swear, the best music was made prior to 1985... Continue reading

Sad to hear things are still the same with the online Tarot world. I had such bad experiences with so many in the Tarot world that I just decided to not blog, vlog, podcast, teach or write books on the topic anymore (despite some begging me to return). Their whole zeitgeist is so ego-driven--so toxic, materialistic and grade-school cliquish--that I couldn't stand to be "among" them anymore. It's an embarrassment--and another setback for Tarot (which already gets labeled a "devil's tool" from the ignorant)... Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Much appreciated. :o)
