I like to go into a little shell and be a hermit and make music for a while. Delta Goodrem
There’s no doubt in my mind that this is my time to be a hermit. I’ve stayed on my land inworld, working on creating ideas for my blog. In real life, I got lost in a sea of music and books–anything creative. Sometimes being a hermit takes the edge off of living. It allows us to escape into our own little private bubble. And I needed to wrap myself in a bubble, allowing myself to laugh as much as possible and smile at the best things in life. I buried myself in the endless whole of netflix comedians. I have to say, being a hermit didn’t suck. Actually, it was quite relaxing.
Yet there comes a time, when you have to interact with the world. You have to pop the bubble that you live in, because people aren’t designed to be alone all the time. We’re social creatures, even if it means only spending time with others sometimes. I felt bad for needing space, because not everyone understood the silence. People take it personal. I had many reasons for wanting to close myself off this week, getting lost in my work inworld or spending time in real life.
This past week, I was very busy with real life and I’m going to take a brief second to talk about my real life–only because it effects my time inworld. I’ve waited all summer for a surgery date, but I had to get scans and tests done, before I could even think about booking it. I finally have a date set for surgery. Since I have a date for surgery and now all the details to go forward, my blogging will be sporadic after September 10th. I want to thank my sponsors for their patience and understanding at this time. This was my main reason for needing time alone. I’ve had a week of calling family and friends, giving them all the details. It has been a bit draining, so I needed time alone in all worlds.
Since I felt like a hermit, I decided that this was the perfect time to create a picture of this card in the major arcana. I can relate to it so much this week. It has a simple meaning. “The Hermit Tarot card suggests that you are in a phase of introspection where you are drawing your attention and focus inward and looking for answers within. You have a strong need to understand, not just at the surface level but to really know why life is the way it is. The Hermit reflects that your consciousness has moved inward and you now realize that the truth and understanding you seek is within yourself and not in the distractions of the outside world. This is a perfect time to take a step back from your day-to-day life and deeply contemplate your motivations, personal principles and values.” I definitely needed time alone to recharge my batteries and gain perspective.
As I was withdrawing from the world and evaluating everything, I decided to create a set that reflected my current feelings. So I looked no further than Collabor88 and Equal10. There are so so many items in this picture that are from this round at C88. I’m not going to go through every item, because this blog would be very very long. BUT I will make a quick mention of Equal10. A friend and designer created these cute whimsical bunny ears with flowers–Eliavah at Equal10. They are so so cute. I knew right away that I had to be a “bad” bunny. I also want to mention romp. My mask is from cubic cherry at romp. Finally the majority of the furniture and my body suit are all available at Collabor88. If you like anything featured in the photo above, please check out my credits below.
