Two more books land in my mailbox

Picture 18

Hello everyone, another week has come and gone. It was a sad week, a dear friend of the family has passed away and he will be missed.

Bookwise, I have received two new books. New Page Books was kind enough to send me a copy of Lisa Barretta’s book “Conscious Ink: The Hidden Meaning of Tattoos:

515ld0bcj4l-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Mystical, Magical, and Transformative Art You Dare to Wear”. I didn’t like her last book but this one looks much better.

“Conscious Ink” … There is hidden, powerful wisdom in tattoos. Did you ever think of your tattoo as a charged body talisman or a portal into your spiritual self? Ancient cultures practicing shamanic tattooing laid the groundwork for our modern exploration of consciousness. Tattoos are both a revelation and a proclamation of your embodied archetypes, dreams, emotions, even a hint of past-life memories.

Hampton Roads was kind enough to send me a free review copy of “Fortune Teller’s Handbook” … For those who have wanted to try their hand at fortunetelling, this comprehensive sampler of divination strategies offers a thorough introduction to a wide range of options.

From more elaborate systems such as numerology, palmistry, and the I Ching to simpler dice and tea reading, you’ll come to understand the history and usage of these ancient arts. Learn to read futures in a crystal ball, tarot cards, runes, or your own visage. Predict ups and downs in love, career, relationships, and finances. Find meaning in dreams, the structure of a flower, and even the placement of moles on a person’s body. Expert insights, sample readings, and instructive illustrations provide practical guidance for the budding fortune-teller.

This book is fun to use for yourself or with a gathering of friends. Techniques include: crystal ball reading, numerology, rune reading, using a pendulum, palmistry, tea leaf reading, and using the I Ching.

Are you destined for good luck, money, and a great career? Will you find love or travel to distant lands? The answers can be found in these 20 easy-to-use predictive techniques.

Should be some fun reading next week…

Reading The Eagle’s View

I’m about halfway through Fievet’s “The Eagle View: Five Steps to Modern Mysticism.” Iced coffee, potato chips, and a good book, what more could anyone ask for?

Review: Medicine Wheel Plain & Simple by Deborah Durbin

Medicine Wheel Plain & Simple: The Only Book You'll Ever NeedMedicine Wheel Plain & Simple: The Only Book You’ll Ever Need by Deborah Durbin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had a blast reading through this book. I am a “Raven”. If you are like me, you will immediately turn to the page with your zodiac symbol and then look up family and friends.
The charts are clear and easy to understand, the clipart is incredible, Durbin hit the ball out of the park with this one. I loved every minute of it — as did the people I shared it with.

Review: Fairies Plain & Simple by Ralph Harvey

Fairies Plain & Simple: The Only Book You'll Ever NeedFairies Plain & Simple: The Only Book You’ll Ever Need by Ralph Harvey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought that Ralph Harvey’s book “Fairies” was a good book. In the 131 pages, he quickly walks you through the basics of the Fairy realm.
I liked the clipart and the poetry scattered throughout the book. There is a lot to like about this diminutive book.
I did have a few “eye-roll” moments when Harvey introduced chakras into the “Finding Fairies”.
That being said, I think that this book will appeal to the fairy collectors and will make a nice Christmas stocking-stuffer.

Cha-cha-cha busted

My cha-cha-chia pet is showing signs of life. My family gave me a Bob Ross Chia Pet … I’m such a geek. At any rate, I didn’t do a very good job putting the chia slime on Bob Ross’ head so Bob will have some bald spots. The biggest problem that I had with the chia pet was the tray. The tray had a crack in it and water leaked from it onto my sofa. What a cha-cha-mess. I’ll have to find a better tray.

As you can see my apple seeds have sprouted and I had to move the Christmas cactus into the Floridaroom because the squirrels were eating them. Damn squirrels.

I hate hospitals

nurse-110817

When I say that I hate hospitals, the word hate doesn’t seem to be a strong enough word. I spent about 10 hours in various waiting rooms — waiting.  They offered up the carrot of “going home soon” but ended with an “I’m sorry”.  Even leaving the hospital, the nurse asked me to bring around the car and she took so much time that the valets had me drive around twice.

At any rate, the important thing is that Darlene is resting well at her home.

Wrap-up of the week

The family gathered for breakfast as usual. Darlene didn’t eat anything; she is due for a gallbladder procedure Tuesday. I guess I’ll spend Tuesday in a hospital waiting-room — again.

They came bearing gifts. They gave me a Bob Ross Chia pet ( because everyone needs a Bob Ross chia pet ), some melaleuca honey, and some pineapple-orange juice. I suppose that I will be eating these leftovers for the rest of the day.

I have finished reading “The Medicine Wheel: Plain & Simple” by Deborah Durbin, “Faires: Plain & Simple” by Ralph Harvey, and “The Eagle’s View” by Paddy Fievet. I haven’t reviewed them because — I’m lazy. Trust me … Soon.

The weather is warm here in Florida. Today the temps will hit the 80’s — when will it ever be Fall?. The squirrels have developed a taste for my Christmas Cactus and they’ve eaten about a third of it, little bastards. They also chewed up a plastic dipper for fertilizer, what the hell?

Oh well, time to play with my chia pet. Have a great week everyone.
