This is an anti-Valentines newsletter. If you were hoping for an essay full of crayon drawn hearts and Valentine’s cards, then stop reading now. Usually, Valentine’s Day is not even a thought outside of work. At an elementary building, everything is celebrated: the beginning of the month, lost teeth, but especially Valentine’s day. The exchange of cards among classmates makes the whole building buzz.
With my own grief experience, if help was someone's effort to make the grief go away, then there was never going to be help. But if help was simply being a bit of light in the darkness, well, that was a different thing.
As for Valentine's Day, I get a kick out of how people can celebrate, but we don't do anything for it. Our son's birthday is the day after, and this time of year is always tough for our finances. We'd rather spend the money on his day.
Your Tarot class looks great! Good luck with it! And lots of good thoughts and light to you.
I hope your grief becomes memories that make you smile and laugh, making your life richer.
I'm wondering if this might be something you'd like to check out? A friend of mine introduced me to Uncertainment Lounge. Info at https://practicesof.org/.
Sending good vibes your way.
