That Pleasure…

‘That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.’

Eyes Wide Open…

 With our eyes wide open, we…

 So this is the end of the story,
Everything we had, everything we did,
Is buried in dust,
And this dust is all that’s left of us.
But only a few ever worried.

Well the signs were clear, they had no idea.
You just get used to living in fear,
Or give up when you can’t even picture your future.

We walk the plank with our eyes wide open.

 Some people offered up answers.
We made out like we heard, they were only words.
They didn’t add up to a change in the way we were living,
And the saddest thing is all of it could have been avoided.

But it was like to stop consuming’s to stop being human,
And why would I make a change if you won’t?
We’re all in the same boat, staying afloat for the moment.

We walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we…
 
With our eyes wide open, we walk the plank, we walk the plank.
 
That was the end of the story.

Row 1 – Rider, Road and Anchor.

A seemingly contradictory combination due to the Road/Anchor which mean the exact opposite of each other, however given current circumstances in my life, in particular my professional life, I believe this to mean that I will receive news which will see me change direction within my particular field of employment, but I will remain with my employer.

Row 2 – Clouds, Stork and Sun.

I am at the silver lining stage of things and stagnant matters will now start to be resolved and will have optimistic outcomes.

Row 3 – Tower, Child and Fish.

Someone older from my past or fate is guiding me and a business in its infancy.

Column 1 – Rider, Clouds and Tower.

News is on its way about someone older/from my past and my own way of thinking will influence this.

Column 2 – Road, Stork and Child.

I will shortly go on a journey (I’m going on my trip to the US/Canada in less than a month) and pregnancy.

Column 3 – Anchor, Sun and Fish.

Staying put, optimistic outcomes and money.

Diagonal 1 – Rider, Stork and Fish.

News awaited will cause a sudden flurry of activity and money.

Diagonal 2 – Anchor, Stork and Tower.

Staying put, a sudden flurry of activity and someone older/from my past.

Summary.  

News will be received this week that will cause lots of activity to occur and will be positive. I believe the news to be work related although there are no cards to indicate this. It’s a gut feeling.

I am being looked after by the Gods, money looks sound and that ambiguous Child card is back. There is confirmation of my up-coming holiday.

The Distance…

 IMG_8742

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags go up.
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup.
They deftly manoeuvre and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank.
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns.
Their prowess is potent and secretly stearn.
As they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
The fans get up and they get out of town.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he’s driving and striving and hugging the turns.
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

He’s going the distance.
He’s going for speed.
She’s all alone
In her time of need.
Because he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse,
He’s going the distance.

No trophy, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no wine,
He’s haunted by something he cannot define.
Bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse,
Assail him, impale him with monster-truck force.
In his mind, he’s still driving, still making the grade.
She’s hoping in time that her memories will fade.
Cause he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he’s striving and driving and hugging the turns.
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

Cause he’s going the distance.
He’s going for speed.
She’s all alone
In her time of need.
Because he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He’s going the distance.
He’s going for speed.
He’s going the distance.

Breakthrough…

 IMG_8639

Everybody wants to feel high on top of the world

But you really can’t enjoy the view when it’s mighty cold

Everybody climbing one another gets so hard to stand

For those who’re at the bottom need the helping hand

 

We need to

We’re all in pain

Cause another breakthrough

                     Let it pour like rain                       

 

We don’t want to be the ones who lost control

Armed with a pen and I don’t know if I’m all alone?

Summer of love and I just feel like I don’t want to be out

Cos seeing it all can make us other ones fear in doubt

 

We need to

We’re all in pain

Cause another breakthrough

                        Let it pour like rain                       

Strong enough to make a move

But we’re all insane

 

And it hits you like…

Need another breakthrough

Can you hear the cry?

Row 1 – Child, Anchor and Moon.

The Child is an ambiguous card in so much that the cards around it do not offer a definitive meaning in this specific reading. So it could be a reference to me, because I have a child and it is my first card, or it could mean my child, or it could mean a childlike state of wonderment. Otherwise, the Anchor refers to staying put, and the Moon is beauty and luck. It’s a positive row which ever way it is read and only time will tell its true interpretation.

Row 2 – Bear, Rider and Stork.

Important news will arrive and cause a sudden flurry of activity.

Row 3 – Dog, Clouds and Coffin.

Negative thinking about a friend.

Column 1 – Child, Bear and Dog.

Something big/important regarding a friend and me, or my child which may have me in a childlike state of wonderment.

Column 2 – Anchor, Rider and Clouds.

News will arrive that confirms I will stay however I must stay on top of my thoughts eg  remain positive.

Column 3 – Moon, Stork and Coffin.

Something delayed will now begin to move forward and it will be beautiful and lucky.

Diagonal 1 – Child, Rider and Coffin.

There will be delayed news about me, my child or leave me in a childlike state of wonderment.

Diagonal 2 – Moon, Rider and Dog.

News about a friend is beautiful and lucky.

Summary

A bit of a convoluted reading offering dual meanings and occasionally ambivalent meanings. Anything relating to the Child is the latter whereas the Dog is suggesting both positivity and negativity relating to a friend. Otherwise news is on its way and it promises to be excellent. It will also indicate that I’m remaining where I am although I have no idea what area of my life this is referring to.

Flume…

 IMG_8730

I am my mother’s only one
It’s enough
I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon

I am my mother on the wall
With us all
I move in water, shore to shore
Nothing’s more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leery loons
Leaving rope burns, reddish ruse

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon

~ Bon Iver: Flume ~
