I know you thought I ran a business that provided overnight care for pups (Camp Run-A-Pup) and sold deer antlers (Deer Antlers for Pups). Well, I do…but I read cards and told fortunes long before I took care of pups or sold antlers.
I haven’t read cards or told fortunes in a very long time, and I’ve never had a red flashing crystal ball in my window. But I did use to have an appointment book that was full of clientele ready to cross my palm with banana nut bread and cookies. I was invited to some cool parties and fortunetelling became my hobby, so to speak.
Life got busy after Cole arrived on the scene, and I needed to focus on different priorities, like groceries and utility bills. So my hobby took a back burner and Camp-Run-A-Pup and Deer Antlers, along with being a full-time mom, took off. I still told fortunes, but only for a select few.
I’m not a witch. It takes a whole lot of work and study to become a witch. One does not just wake up one morning and start waving a magic wand. I do love the clothes, though. I just have a natural talent for fortunetelling. Or so I’m told.
As I have mentioned in past posts, I’m a big believer in synchronicity…and lately, all signs have suggested I revisit my fortunetelling hobby: a book from Cousin Carla, people I haven’t head from in a decade asking me to read for them, random and various people asking if I still tell fortunes, and an invitation to read for a Halloween birthday party, along with a very specific dream. The universe has been persistent in suggesting I pay attention to this area of my life, but I have resisted. And then a friend asked me for a reading and at the end of the reading she said, “You know, you could offer to tell fortunes on Odd and see where it takes you.”
My motto in life is “Why Not?”
So here is the deal. If you want me to tell your fortune, leave a comment with a question or two. I will pull a tarot card or gaze into my crystal ball and do my best to answer your question or provide direction. I’m not a mind reader, so please be specific. Feel free to make up a name; if you use your correct e-mail address, nobody will know it’s you and you won’t be whisked away to my spam folder. Please provide me with feedback. In the comments or by e-mail. In time I may read fortunes regularly on Odd, but let’s just take it one question at a time. If you want a more in-depth reading, e-mail me and we’ll work something out.
One last thing: I don’t take myself too seriously, and you shouldn’t either. If I did, I would call myself a psychic advisor or professional tarot card reader and charge you a small fortune. (Ha ha.) I’m told that I’m accurate, but do take my readings lightly unless I tell you to go to the dentist or check a stone in your jewelry.
