The Sky Like A Scallop Shell

The adventures and passions of K. D. Hume

Your world is as big as you make it.
I know, for I used to abide
In the narrowest nest in a corner,
My wings pressing close to my side.

But I sighted the distant horizon
Where the skyline encircled the sea
And I throbbed with a burning desire
To travel this immensity.

I battered the cordons around me
And cradled my wings on the breeze,
Then soared to the uttermost reaches
With rapture, with power, with ease!
Your World, Georgia Douglas Johnson

NaPoWriMo #22

So I fell behind, but now I’m writing like crazy and making a fool of myself all over the internet. I’ve put up 71 poems inspired by tarot cards and runes and most of them are pure crap. Feeling pretty vulnerable, like all the people who hate me are probably reading what I write and laughing (god knows I laugh at the things they say, so it’s only fair). 

You know what would be fun? You should send me anonymous secrets. About anything. Yeah, let’s do that.

My new tarot deck! I’m considering coloring them in if I can find an appropriate type of pen.

Where the you buy your deck? I will love to color my cards I believe is a side of therapeutic very symbolic of your own personality

I picked up mine at The Psychic Sister, which a really nifty vintage clothing store/divination gathering place, but it’s called the Hermetic Tarot, and I think you can find it just about anywhere online, including Amazon.

A friend of our gave us a Corona beer ad, but Corona beer ads don’t really jive with our rainbow science fiction themed decor, so I fixed it. Not sure what I want the sign behind her to say.
