End of May Trio: Love and Growth in the Home
For some reason I find this deck particularly satisfying to photograph, which is probably why I have posted with it fairly often on the blog. I'd guess it is because of the stark black and white images--they are very memorable and full of contrast.
I pulled these cards yesterday morning, and I thought they were an interesting trio. Yes, that's my steering wheel and no, I wasn't driving at the time. I was parked with the car turned off. I just find the steering wheel a convenient way to hold cards sometimes!
There are, as always, lots of ways to go with this, because I guess I saw, in a general sense, personal growth stemming from cultivating love and projects around the home. I'll be home, as I often am, but with my daughter, over the summer, and I hope to find new ways to love from that place. Also, if you want to get really literal you could say, 'Grow to love your home.' We're doing that--seven months into living here, we're finally doing the deeper sorting and organizing and decorating, and we're at the tail end of it.
My goal for the summer, hence my divination hiatus, is to work steadily on home improvements that I've been putting off since we've moved in. For instance, two dark, patchy gray rooms which sorely need a bright coat of paint. And the downstairs den which also needs a coat of cheerful paint. I don't like painting walls very much, but it does have such a profound impact on how a room looks and feels.
Speaking of growth, we're also going to be cultivating a veggie garden (the set-up of raised beds and compost bins being a gift from the previous owners), so that's a very literal meaning for the Growth card. Either way, growth is what's happening in and around our home.
Sending love to y'all,
