… is a little late this month.
Nothing unusual in that as I generally take a day or so to re-do the backgrounds and palettes for a new month, but these past few weeks I’ve been decidedly below par and so energy levels have been low to match. Which is why you, my faithful regular readers, might recognise parts of this post as it’s already up on the INKorporated blog… *does red-faced shuffle*
Some of the following HAS been changed however, to reflect the difference we celebrate on here! 😉
This is not to say there’s nothing going on here – far from it! The house refurbishment is going on apace, and we’re now entering the final phase of the planned projects for this year. The major elements of the kitchen are all in place now, and it’s looking really great, pending the final touches of paint, new tiling and flooring, which should all be done in the next few weeks, starting tomorrow! The rest of the living room decor should also be going in soon, so, come mid-Autumn we should be looking pretty much complete. 😀
So, today it’s high time to change the palettes and backgrounds. Now, if you’re a regular, you may already know that I’ve been using some of my major arcana tarot designs to go with the Tower of Destruction banner at the top of the page. This time of year, when the harvest is being gathered, and the fields are being returned to dormancy before next year’s planting, I thought it was time to trot out The Justice.
It’s a fantasy-themed deck, so when I put the image together I opted to use something that nodded towards the wisdom and balance aspects of Justice and chose the Greek pantheon to carry the theming in the shape of Athene Parthenos. So, we have wisdom and integrity, with the owl and the sterner aspects of the goddess with the righteous sword and empty-eyed helm. The sword also forms the nasal shield and is about to cut through the golden cobwebs… There is also a nod towards the endings and new beginnings that are inherent to the administering of justice that seems to fit into the start of autumn. Also reaping the fruit of the harvest before winter comes, as we gravitate to the hearth and home comforts to plot our course for the birth of the new year. Entering this final phase of home improvement means that I’m spending money like water (nothing new there!), but I’m also looking to up my game and get more organised with DreamWorlds Publishing. Hence the rebirth fixation… 😛
So – here’s to a little more dynamism and activity coming along on here, and in other places as we head towards the close of the year. Lots of nurturing, tending and fruition of plans and schemes for a more abundant and fertile future – and a whole heap of new home comforts and outlooks.
Did I mention that the garden’s getting a makeover too? 😛 More about that later in the month! 😉
