One thought on “Memo to Self”

  1. “An adept astrologer might offer more insight than a mediocre psychologist.”

    So true… at least in my case. I was a skeptic of both, had one session with each; the mediocre (or terrible-for-me-only, perhaps) psychologist seemed to want to coldy pick my brain, and wanted to do so over many sessions (I refused); the adept astrologer helped me understand possible aspects of my own soul, in a way that was surprising, felt nurturing, and healing — within the space of single hour. (Has been a long while… maybe it’s time for me to contact her again.)

    “Some quandaries are mythic, rather than mental, and some truths need tracking along a higher dimension of story.”

    Wow… beauty. Rather than digging… to climb/soar along/above them.

    Happy to read your memo at this mo’ :)) xoxo
