• Disappointment begets inertia

    Have you ever felt like your tools outright hate you? I don’t mean your electric drill suddenly turning on you, à la Skynet. I’m talking about things being generally uncooperative. You know, the spoon that spills and splashes, the key that refuses to fit in the lock, the gawdamn USB that won’t go in the slot. Or, specifically in today’s case, the divination tools that won’t cooperate. There are certainly days I feel under attack my physics in general, and there are days when it seems metaphysics is out to get me. It’s hard when a tarot deck that has taken a disliking to you keeps turning up cards the…

  • Reading 22-1-9

    This is the first time I’ve added runes to my divination, though I’ve had this set for quite a while. Something else that turned up in the mail weeks after I’d forgotten I ordered them and my interest had waned. Of course, when I did stumble across them again my interest quickly renewed. Which isn’t to say I’ve read the book or done any real research. Unfortunately, trying to embed new information into my brain by memorisation is doomed to fail unless I use that information regularly. If I practiced with runes – and cards for that matter – more often than once every month or three then memorisation would…

  • Promise and Resolve and Tangents

    Audio. What’s this audio about, anyway? I think every year starts with promise – and promises. I could wax philosophical and suggest every day starts with the same, or that it’s all a construct by consensus because time is both relative and meaningless.

  • I suck at accountability – but I have an idea

    Audio What’s this audio about, anyway? I seriously suck at holding myself accountable Below, I go into at least a little detail about why this has become a real problem when it comes to achieving things that matter to me, but in case you’d rather not read through that ordeal, here’s a quick precis of what this post is about: I have something I really, really want to achieve but I can’t do it on my own. I enjoy writing and I’m pretty good at it, but I can’t write for myself. No amount of word tracking or magical apps for word sprints or promises from friends to read it…
