Tarot & Whiskey

I can't believe I started blogging back in 2008/2009.   I used to post a lot, and under different blog names (mommydrinks, mommydrinksalot, mommydrinks abroad, ladywarfield presents....).  My life has changed a lot sense those early posts. They were more focused about fashion, beauty, celebrity, profiles on my talented friends, etc.  At times I still do that, but it has been about 10+ years, so it's good that we grow, change, and find new directions.

This Blog is more about what's going on now- when I do find the time.  It's still just me. So it's really whatever I feel like, at any given time.  Which might include my philosophy, introspection, being a woman gracefully and lovingly journeying into my 50's.

So, it's quite possible, you might want to stop following me... that is if anyone out there still is.   Sometimes the question might come up, why blog?  Well, it's like live journaling.  I never cared if anyone was reading it.   And if so, it's probably just a few of my close friends. But, sometimes I make a connection out there with someone likeminded.   It's a quiet mysterious world in and out there.  But I read other peoples blogs, pages and instagrams eagerly, so maybe someone would like mine.

Truth be told I haven't kept up very well in the past 3 years. I was working on my Travel blog, when I was living in Germany.  When I moved back, I printed it, and shut it down. I just didn't want it living out there.   And then I started ups new career- making hats- and I have a "professional" blog. Well, really it's just apart of the website, that might promote events.

But there is something else I do.  Or have been doing, and slowly it's growing more and more in me, and ready to come out.  I am studying the Tarot.   That's a longer story, and I'm might get to it another time.  But basically, this blog, and the facebook page that really acts with this blog, by sharing other content of similar interests, is about my spiritual journey, being a woman, and just life.   So with that said, there won't really be any fashion here anymore. Not that it isn't all something I love.

If your interested, and have Instagram, by all means follow my little Instagram called Tarot & Whiskey @tarotandwhiskey.  Just remember, this is all beginner level, and only for the open mind.  

 I am but a wild child, a wise woman,
a seeker of light and beauty in all things. 
I am here for the truth.
only spiritual warriors enter

I love to share wisdom from other lovely women.  And this is something I found a bit a go, about our journey onwards.   I hope you enjoy, as I do.  I very much relate to this poem.

I am becoming the woman I've wanted,
grey at the temples,
soft body, delighted,
cracked up by life
with a laugh that's known bitter
but, past it, got better,
knows she's a survivor-
that whatever comes,
she can outlast it.
I am becoming a deep
weathered basket.

I am becoming the woman I've longed for,
the motherly lover
with arms strong and tender,
the growing daughter
who blushes surprises.
I am becoming full moons
and sunrises.

I find her becoming,
this woman I've wanted,
who knows she'll encompass,
who knows she's sufficient,
knows where she's going
and travels with passion.
Who remembers she's precious,
but knows she's not scarce-
who knows she is plenty,
plenty to share.
