Screen Shot: LGBT Friends around the Web

I haven’t mentioned much about the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision last week in regards to gay and lesbian marriage becoming the law of the land in all 50 states of the Unites States of America. Maybe it’s still sinking in…

 

But I swear to you, I wept in the car as I heard the news on the radio while driving north to Burlington last Friday.

 

Today, while logging into Ravelry.com to check-in on my knitting homies, I noticed something in the upper-left-hand corner… something different about that logo…

It is so lovely to find friends and compatriots among that big vast world wide web… Thank you, Ravelry.

Dare to be as holistic as your vision allows you to be. This concept is important in so many ways… not just in reading the tarot, but with respect to the environment, and with the choices that we make every day of our lives.  Without a holistic vision of our predicament (utilizing prudence), we are simply shortsighted…

 

 

 

 

Even More Places to Find Humility in the Tarot

Humility in the Fool? You think I must be joking… But research would seem to elucidate an element of humility—or lack of humility—in the history of the fool. In either sense—present or absent—we are provided a mode of observing, or gauging, or ruminating upon the virtuous nature of humility.

Community: Great Words

Dorotheos of Gaza was a 6th-century monk, eventually becoming an abbott of his own monastery. His writing, in the form of instructions for his charges, particularly condemns pride among his monks, deplores ascetic competition among the community, and places humility as the summit of monastic life.
