from bad comes good

the messy teak topped desk this weekend - working on a very fun, kinda secret typographic illustration project - check out my latest type/illustration for American Greetings here

Take a breath – or three. Let go of any expectations for the moment, let go of a need to control or master this changeable situation. Don’t fight the current, flow with it. 

from Saturday's post

Spent the weekend really pondering the above phrase from my last week's "airy fairy" if you like Tarotscope - ya huh " A combination of Tarot card & Zodiac sign. Hey ! I'll take any advice I can get. Sometimes great advice arrives from the weirdest places. I pondered, I wrestled, I chewed on it for days - this idea of letting go of expectation. I've spent a lifetime clinging, like my life dependended on it, to most all of my expectations. And I have a trunk full. My expectations have sub catagories & chapters. What's left without an expectation ?? I think many of us, though the idea of letting go sounds incredibly appealing, have absolutely no idea how to let go.

take a breath
uncurl those fingers
let it go
let it fall
let it drop
until you lose sight of it 

take another breath
now, how's that feelin'

So much goodness came from a weekend of pain & hurt - isn't that always the way. Good Ness. 
Last week's Tartscope card was the Moon who's wisdom got me through a rough patch. This week's card is the 6 of Cups - perhaps the sweetest card in the deck - oh boy !

Go ahead and be carefree this week – that attitude, that lightness, has a lesson for you. Let yourself play.
