Holiday tarot reading

A couple of weeks ago, exasperated by the rain and needing to Go Somewhere, anywhere hot, I booked a trip to Spain. Camping on the coast and a city break at the end. Em texted and said she’d come too. Perfect! The night before, after packing our small bags, Em and I drew cards for …

Community building – Three of Pentacles

Three is the magic number, right? With the Three of Pentacles, we can see why.

The Chariot

This week, I’ve been offered the opportunity to submit a business proposal for a new project. The work is not something I’ve considered before… well, that’s a lie.
