Today marks the start of this blog three years ago. It came during a transtional period in which I needed a creative outlet. Keeping a handwritten diary, day planner and sketchbook were other alternatives, but I wanted something that I could share with people who had the same interests. The journey has been brimming with light and self-discovery, and today I stand clear on all the questions that I had when I first started blogging. This creative outlet allowed me to connect with other creatives who enjoy documenting their lifestyle and practices, and I admire them in more ways than just for committing to being bloggers. They do a spectacular job at it, too.
As compared to 2012, 2013 has presented the setup for a whole new lifestyle dynamic. All of the goals that were set for last year have been checked off the list, which feels like a hearty accomplishment in itself. There is something empowering about going through projections that you were hoping for some time ago. Looking back at the pictures makes me smile, too.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS?
What will you be doing this Halloween? Are you going to dress up and go for a night around the town, or is there a special event that you have been looking forward to?
I am thinking of going to see Grendel live at Das Bunker with my friend Kelly. You may remember her and Mat from last year's Japan adventure. We went to Tokyo Decadance and had a spooktastic time partying with Tokyo's children of the night. It was magical! We don't know what it is about the season that inexplicably brings us together while we are so far away, but I think at this point it is a good idea to deem it as the annual tradition that we share together. Let's see if it's a possibility for next year. It seems geographic differences are not limitation enough. Who knows?
This party is going to be so much fun. Grendel's Zombienation song has been playing at every industrial party I have gone to around Halloween time. Das Bunker is celebrating their seventeenth anniversary with LA's first live performance by Grendel in over 5 years, the Das Bunker debut of High-Functioning flesh, and welcomes back DJ Jasyn Bangert of God Module. Additionally, my clubbing friends are all going to be there. What is there not to be excited about? All I am missing is J's company, and we're all set.
Thinking about what lies ahead, I think that the next year isn't really about goals. The impression that I am getting is that it is time to enjoy what was worked so hard to attain. Now that the circumstances are different, my gut feeling says it's time to switch things up a little bit. Starting now, Hello Witches is scheduled on Sunday. Tarot Dreams will remain on Wednesday, but may or may not be posted just once a month in a lengthy post. The Friday editorials remain in the same day, but may come at a bi-weekly basis. Let's try this dynamic out, and if it doesn't work, I will reverse it to the way it is now or figure something else. Blogs evolve as you go along.
Thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to me that you come back to check out what's new, and most importantly, that you get involved in what is going on. Let's look forward to what seems to be a sparkly, emotive new year. Let's share our stories of life adventures, tarot card readings and journeys through the job market. I want to know more about you.
The special offer is back! Since the year starts winding down in November, I want to extend an invitation to my readers and clients for Annual Reviews or insightful general readings. As part of the invitation, there will be a special discount offer made available until January 05, 2014. I am knocking $20.00 off my one hour readings, which totals to the amount of $45.00 instead of $65.00. You can find it on the right hand side of this page or in the Tarot page.
