The snow started yesterday with periodic snow squalls. One moment sunny, the next a white-out. I was out in it briefly yesterday and very happy once home to be an observer from this side of the window. My view over to my little forest is like a winter wonderland. Oh so very pretty. I do not see what the roads are like and the challenges the snow creates. I have heard it is quite a mess out there. When I got up early this morning and saw all the snow on my trees, I knew this was to be a relaxing, enjoyable day. I would make it so.
And I have. I almost feel guilty as there are many things I could/should be doing. The choice is mine though isn't it. I catch myself distracted and lost in thought as I look out the window. I can just lift my head and there it is. Perhaps it is time well spent. This lost in thought time.
And perhaps the Universe is telling me just that, as only minutes ago from the Sacred Circle tarot (Anna Franklin & Paul Mason) I pulled:
Different setting, same idea. I feel the card is telling me to take advantage of my thought process. Definitely use my own mind, develop my own ideas. Also to be careful to actually use the information coming to me and the information I gather myself, not just store it.
My mind can be rather restless. This card reminds me to use "thought" to make some sense of what is in there. A meditation of sorts.
There might even be a surprise for me!! Hmmm ...
