Leader of the Band

Good day to you, Tarot Tots!

Today I have something entirely new for you. I am reading a book called “A year of Inspired Living: Essays and Guided Journaling for Self-reflection” by Kelly McGrath Martinsen. It is very interesting so I thought I would do some work on my blog about it.

The first thing I came to was June. The question it asks is “How will you share your music, stories, freedom, and kindness with those you love?“. So I will answer in my own way.

Music is a very interesting thing for me because I listen to a lot of goth music (I’m goth, sue me! Jk) and alternative music. I also listen to a lot of different and unique musical things. I’m listening to the suggested song “Leader of the Band” by Dan Fogelberg and I am definitely inspired. It’s nice to hear how someone can live through their life trying to live to be like their “leader.” TBF, I do not get along with my own Leader. He was not kind to me as a child and is on the verge of disowning me as an adult, mostly due to the fact that I am so very “different.” My brother has and always probably will be accepted because he leads a much more “normal” life than I do. In some way, I have a sort of love for my father. It’s one of those peculiar kind of loves of “Yes, I am related to you.” But, it is not and probably won’t be much more than that. I won’t go into that too much. Just know that I, and my father have a sort of understanding. It’s not a good one, but it works for us.

The next thing that it talks about is stories. As a Bard, with OBOD (Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids), I am learning about telling stories. It’s nice to see that as well. There are so many people working on their ability to tell stories. Some day I will write a book and it will be a fascinating book about tarot. I’m sitting here reveling in the Saturday morning lofi hiphop music now as I write this part. I don’t know if I will ever be like my fellow Bards and OBOD members because I don’t listen to that much folk music. Sometimes I think that I am doing it wrong but my mentor tells me I’m doing great. I think i will pass my story on through this Blog and other social media that I have (Find me at VyvyanWormwood almost anywhere). I want to pass on the stories of the things I’ve done. Not that any of them are particularly interesting,but I still want to pass them on.

Freedom is something that I wish for everyone. I want all to be free to love and live as they please, as long as it does not harm anyone else in some way. I dont’ think there’s much for me to say on that topic.

And, of course, we have kindness. I find that kindness is hard to find sometimes. People do not treat others with their feelings in their thoughts. My parents did instill in me the ability to think about others. I am not a parent, nor will I ever be (Vyvyan is incapable of having children, as is their husband. They have chosen to never be parents and raise cats instead), but it is nice to help pass on my teachings of kindess on to people on the internet. You all have come here expecting that teaching and kindness to be passed on! I am so proud of you.

Show everyone your love. We all deserve it.
