Well, since the blog didn’t end up getting deleted, which I now know was because the “confirm” email was sent to an alternate email address I’ve not checked in eons — and since the blog has been left mostly unattended, I decided I’d spend a bit of time and energy getting her back in shape today.

Based on viewer/friend feedback, I have separated the Daily Dose categories.  The Daily Dose category now only holds posts with the full daily correspondences, as opposed to duplicating each tarot card and fairy oracle.  I’ve created individual categories for the Tarot Card of the Day and the Fairy Oracle of the day, and have also added two new features – Animal Medicine Cards, and Tao cards.

Because my “faerie tales” articles were buried beneath months of Fairy Oracle daily draws, and because I intend to write about more than just faeries, I have re-named that category, calling it Otherworldly Enchantments, and have moved the articles here, separating them from the Fairy Oracle card posts.

In going through my archives, I noticed that when I began the Daily Dose posts, I often titled the posts, “Daily Dose: Today’s Tarot” and included the date, but did NOT include the title of the card.  The same was true with the Fairy Oracles.  So, I’ve gone back and edited the titles of all of the posts in the Tarot Card and Fairy Oracle categories so that the title reflects the card drawn.  This makes it easier for seeking out specific cards, and in tracking patterns or repeat cards.

I’ve revised, retitled, and moved the “About” page.  It’s now called the “Welcome” page. This includes a brief introduction and a full tour of Autumn Sunrise: The Road Home. 

I’ve removed the animal totems from the bottom of the sidebar.  While they served a purpose for me, they were confusing to others and took up un-necessary space.  I’ve still got a full post on my personal totems and what they mean tucked within the Know Thyself and Animagick categories.

I’ve added a “Divination” category to house my writings on tarot, runes, palmistry, numerology, and other divination subjects.  The content in this category is limited as of yet, but I intend on adding to it in the near future.

It felt good to give the blog a little love today.  Now, having had a long nap and a big bowl of macaroni and cheese, it’s time for me to finish my traffic school course.

Life is good.

Still feeling icky from this cold that’s got me.  Nonetheless, I was up early and eager to transfer more from my archives to their new home here.  This morning, I worked on poetry.  I posted quite a few, but I’ve got lots left to transfer.  I may wait on those, though, and shift my energy tomorrow to including prose and things I’ve written about the art of writing itself.  Eventually, I’ll have it all transferred over and can begin writing and posting current material again.  For now, I’m finding a great sense of healing in reviewing and posting my older pieces.

In reading some of the poetry on love, I had mixed emotions, really.  Of course, there’s a sadness that takes over when a relationship fails, but I’m learning that it’s important that I don’t discard or discount the blessings inspired by those relationships while they were in tact.  Each time I wrote of love, I wrote from my heart – innocent expressions of true emotions.  Each person I wrote poetry for remains in my heart… and it’s true, I will love the essence of those people for eternity… not the “in love” kind of Romeo and Juliet sad ending kind of love, but an appreciation for the roads I’ve travelled and the company with whom I’ve walked those paths. At the same time, I realize I’m currently creatively blocked, most specifically in the areas of love, romance, and writing out those genuine emotions.  I think I’m searching for a new way to express myself, without repeating what I’ve already expressed in the past… a new way to love, even.

At any rate, I’ve updated the About Page to include the new Poetically Yours category.  Tomorrow morning, if time allows, I’ll begin transferring some of the prose, or “freestyle” writing from my past.  I’ve got some pieces in there that really thump me over the head and I’m looking forward to re-reading the notes I’ve left for myself.

Quiet time for this morning is over… it’s time to go to work.

Life is good.
