Magic Windows #16

by angeliska on August 2, 2010

Well, I’m sure it’s a bit cliché by now to be so thoroughly taken in
by an iPhone doo-dad like the Hipstamatic, but I must admit that
I like very much what it does to my everyday surroundings. My
studio has been my haven even more than usual, and I’ve been
slowly making it into more of a harmonious workspace for writing,
drawing, giving tarot readings, and general inspiration. I love this
room so much – and it’s getting even better, as I’m removing things
that aren’t beautiful or useful by the bucket-load, and gettin’ down to
business. Feels good. Finally, so many of the things I’ve been putting
off for months are getting scratched off that eternal, infernal list!

I would love to make an appointment with you for a tarot reading. Perhaps we could trade? I usually do my own readings, but I feel a bit stagnant and too close to my own issues to do a proper reading…..

What do you charge for tarot readings? (not sure if this will let me know you’ve replied.)

Extraordinary, wonderful.
Someday I will be in Austin again & will make a tarot reading appointment with you. In fact, it’s on my bucket list (but I think now it must be a gilded, coral-encrusted, bone-jazzed bucket).

This is so inspiring and so very timely. Now that I am a single lady I have a whole section of the house to myself… that was not really “mine” before. I have dreaded even crossing the threshold for 3 months now…but I think it is time to turn it into a bit of an office or studio or writing nook or something. Why shouldn’t I?
Now I don’t have a Reginald to sass-talk me or anything, but I think I can make it work!
PS
Your garden watcher is perfect. He’s got a real “DON’T F*CK WITH ME, RABBITS!” vibe.

Dear Cassandra,
I could be down for a trade. I know what you mean about doing your own readings. It’s like trying to give yourself a massage.

Dear Bean,
It’s $60 for an hour long reading. I’m open to some barters, also.

Dear Odette,
That would be lovely! I like to ride in your fancy bucket!

Dear Lady Ghoul,
I didn’t realize you’d been through these changes lately! Well, that’s very exciting about your new space. Take it back! I just know you’re going to do something amazing with it. Give it a good cleansing, and then make it into the room of your dreams. Reginald sends you a bushel of sass and rabbits.
love,
A.
