To be honest I wasn’t quite in the mood to blog today but my daily cards decided otherwise. I couldn’t resist to write down the message of these two cards. Also they are a perfect pair to follow up the Ace of Wands from a few days ago. That was such an energizing card; so promising and exciting. But then after my birthday nothing happened. Everything was the same and I felt stuck instead of eager to play with the new art supplies I got for my birthday.
And then I drew the Daughter of Wands, an ideal card to promote experimental play in my art journal. Just to have fun and feel free to explore all kinds of ways to paint and collage and stamp and whatever comes to mind at that particularly moment. But nothing of the sort happened. The thought crossed my mind that maybe I was tired of my birthday festivities.. .Yeah right. Who was I kidding. I was afraid to open my book and to be unable to make my mark today. Or that it would be more of the same and nothing new and exciting would appear on my page. Why, what is the matter with me and then I drew The Tower. Often when we do daily draws and we get The Tower it is not as bad as it seems but today it perfectly represent my fear of being inadequate. Fear is often very great exaggeration of the actual things that might happen in a certain situation. I mean honestly, what is the worst thing that could happen if I did "fail" today. I am quite sure the lighting wouldn’t strike me.
So after posting this I am going upstairs and open my journal, put some paint on the page and see what happens next.
