The Cards You're Dealt

When I was in college, I used to read people's tarot cards. I was pretty damn good at it. The less I knew you, the better the reading. I remember doing a reading for a guy at a party, a mini party obviously because if I was doing keg stands at a big party I wouldn't have had time to do a tarot card reading. He was a bit skeptical and I ended up flooring him. This was a friend of a friend of a friend and I'd never met or heard of him before. I read in the cards, and in my heart, that he was applying for college and trying to decide whether to major in music or engineering. I never gave him an answer but I hope he went with music. Because while the reading told him to follow his heart, it didn't say to follow Zube's words.

I miss reading tarot cards. I miss feeling psychically in tune. But it is tough for me to navigate being psychically in tune and being a little too woo woo. And I was pretty woo woo lo those many years ago. But now I'm just a little too practical. I'm a swinging pendulum. Wondering when I'll start swinging the other way. And hoping gravity will help the pendulum swing less and less either way. Until I'm right in the middle.

And when you're right in the middle, you'll miss those extreme ends. Nice new page setup...glad to see you're posting again!

But the middle ground can be a little boring.

Just when I think you've revealed your most personal and private bits of yourself, you announce that you're a swinger and you go both ways. Next thing I read is going to say something about you actually being a man, right? ;)

It's good to see you writing more, and I hope your pendulum lands wherever you want it to, because it's all about how you use your pendulum, you know?

I would not have guessed this about you. And, you know, the woo woo can be pretty darn cool. You can be in tune and still be practical - the best ones always are, I think.

oh, i think the woowoo is *very* cool!

You know, you are all right. Here's the deal. I've been thinking a little and I think that really, I associate my woo woo-ness with "A Really Fucked Up Time in My Life." And that's, well, an appropriate association. However, it was kind of a beautiful time, too. Lots of growing. And learning. Thanks to the woo woo.

Thank you for the comments. :-)

I used to read tarot cards for those free tarot card reading sites. It was really a good way to sharpen my skills. I had to take a test (read cards for the owners of the site) before they'd let me do it.

I kind of miss that stuff- but I really have to be in 'the zone', and 'in the zone' I'm not these days.
