So. I have that deck of Sacred Invitations cards, y'know?* Every now and then, I shuffle the deck and pull out a new card and stick it on my desk. To think about and ponder and live with for awhile. To see where it takes me.
Yesterday, I pulled this card.
And I laughed out loud.
Because I just randomly pulled the "grow" card from a deck of 48 cards? Now?
So initially, I thought . . . no brainer here, right? Because spring has arrived all of a sudden. (As it does.) And my garden is finally waking up. GROW . . . it's just all around me. I can see it. Nothing to think about. No need to ponder.
As the day wore on, though, I kept thinking about the card and the word. What seems simple and obvious at first glance . . . is often deeper and more complicated. If you consider. And really look. And open yourself just a little bit.
Maybe . . . there's more to this card than the obvious connection to spring and my garden and its coming to life again.
So I'm going to live with this word for a bit. To see where it might lead me (besides the garden). What can I explore? How can I grow? Where will I go?
Let's see. . .
