The Fool and the Hermit

A good friend of mine (Annie Pritchard) drew this picture of me on the first day that we met.

We both volunteer at our local hospital, and I remember yapping a way – a mile a minute – about the first topic that came up that day.

When our shift ended, she showed it to me and I was finally speechless! The way she captured my features (especially my hair! lol) just blew me away.

Well, this Saturday, she managed to do that to me again. And this time she left me speechless for some reasons that I was not ready to admit. ..

My Annie brought in her Tarot cards and gave me a reading. She tried to give me a quick disclaimer about her skills lacking, but I found that hard to believe considering how on point those cards were!

Once I shuffled them, the first 2 cards that she pulled were: ‘The Hermit’ and ‘The Fool’.

As she explained what the cards meant (and how the other 2 – which I can’t remember too well) I had to face the truth.

I am a dreamer. A dreamer who has many forks in the road on figuring out what it is she wants to do and become in this world. Sigh.

I have goals, plans, and now deadlines. Though the thought of them makes me want to hide sometimes in my room and just watch k dramas while eating gummy bears in the dark.

Now that I am aware of fact, I now have to do something about it. Time to get to ‘adulting’ and stop fooling myself with thinking that the universe is going to just deliver things to me – especially if I am not prepared for them when they do present themselves.

So, starting today, I am going to clean up the last chapters of my book to give to my editor and illustrator for review.

I am going to start making videos to post on YouTube (and I will share them here too!).

I am going to get to recording cover songs to post onto my soundcloud.

I am going to start my #giveit100 challenge and finally get back to making sweet sounds with my guitar.

Being a fool will only get so far, and a hermit will get no where in my opinion.

And I refuse to remain either.

Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
