Appropriately dressed

Posted on

Mountain Dream HermitMy card for today was the Hermit, how fitting, since I am not in a mood to be around people at all. Instead of being a social animal I do hermit-tasks, like laundry (washing my cape even) making beans and bacon (perfect food for an outing in a cave) and walk out in the snow to get some sunlight to cure my SAD (trying to find the light)

At least this Hermit is appropriately dressed for the Swedish winter. I would have knitted her some mittens though. Well, not me, but I could have given her one of the 8 pairs my mom knitted for me. I know how to knit but nothing fancy like thumbs.

In-between loads of laundry I am reading John Green’s young adult romance ‘The Fault in our Stars’ and quite like it. People have commented that teenagers don’t talk like they do in that book, but I say sure they do – teens can be utterly pretentious, at least I was. Reading my journal from when I was 17 I had pages and pages about life and death and religion and Literature. See, how Literature got a Capitol L but life didn’t? That’s me at 17… Someway along the way you would have thought I would have changed more.

Mountain Dream Tarot

Mountain DreamLast week I got Bea Nettle’s Mountain Dream Tarot in the mail. I had it on my wishlist for at least 10 years but it has been OOP a lot of that time. Now it is available again and I just adore it. It is the first photography deck!

It is basically a RWS clone and I usually don’t like those, but there is a lot of feeling and flare in this one. That whole 70:ies groove. Unfortunately the deck is a bit warped but nothing I can’t work around. If you want to order the deck go to Bea Nettles shop! She got lots of other awesome stuff too that I wish I could afford some day 😀

MountainDream4cI picked this lovely 4 of cups the other day. It is not perhaps done so ‘flawless’ you can see how the boys hand has been superimposed over a cup. Today we would have just digitally added a hand actually holding a cup. But Bea Nettle worked with what she had. The 3 cups on the ground are all different, with the fourth, we can’t yet see what it really is, the hand both offers it and hides it.
