Today’s card is The Dreamer Prince – Gift of Liberty from the Tarot of the Sidhe by Emily Carding. We see a Sidhe prince with his hands over his ears and from his head a flock of birds is taking flight. When I think of the twittering of the birds in my garden, this flock of birds could be deafening for our Prince. So many idea’s, so many thoughts are sprouting from his ever busy mind. He always has inspiration enough. His well of ideas never runs dry. But it is very difficult for him to stop his train of thoughts and to focus on one subject or idea and to elaborate on it, let alone do something with all his bright ideas.

I have all these thoughts about what I want to do and most of them never gets done or when I am starting vigorously with something new, I am losing interest along the way too soon and so I have a pile of unfinished projects stacked away for more productive times.....
Since I am getting older, I also seem to leak my greatest ideas without being aware I’ve lost something precious. So now I am always, wherever I go, carrying a notebook with me to jot down the things I want to remember. I also like to make lists and mind maps to keep my thought process a bit within limits.
