Small tricks to still the turning world
It is always difficult when the world is busy and noisy, when there is too much to do, to centre and ground yourself.
In the process of tidying my space I spread out the hare oracle designed by Hannah Willow on top of one of my plan chests.
I shuffled the cards then laid them out, at the moment like a clock as I have a curious obsession with time. Each morning, if I remember, I shake the bag with the rune stones in and let one fall into my fingers.
Today it was the ancestor hare.
It gives me time to think, opens pathways, stills the world that spins too fast.
Today I have put the stone into my pocket and will carry it with me as I ride over the hill, above stone, and look out across the sea. We ride past a site of ancient burial where our ancestors placed their dead in cromlechs.
