Less Broom and More Gracious

















I will clean the wasp nest
of my thoughts by unplugging
from the electronic stream
of two cent opinionators.

I will be less broom and
more gracious and apply
my fingertips to the spotted glass
that smudges my view of the garden.

My tarot card reading for the day:

The Empress:

Be ambitious today, in a subtle way, and meet with a lot of cooperation and good will. Your ambition does not have to be grandiose. Concentrate on small projects and sweep away a lot of loose ends and complete things that have been long lingering. Act and speak with authority, and be fully respected. Do as much as you can today, and don't look back.

You had me at "Less broom..." All right, so you had me way before that, but "less broom" is just so awesome.

An affirmation. a card, a meaning, a poem

Interesting irony or tension here between powers of a goddess demonstrated by the lighter touch.

Love it, Susie. Leave it to a woman to want he windows clear. Two cent opinionators, are they the ones who wear the three dollar fascinators?
