Earth Wisdom Tarot Sacred Art

This is how we restore ourselves, how we jump off the negative spinning cycle of worry and anxiety, of drama on the national stage and on the oh-so-personal stage . . . we take it all to the Mother, and she restores our joy to us. 

The Earth is our Mother, She will take care of us,

The Earth is our Mother, We must take care of her . . .

    What a beautiful area! I would much rather spend the morning enjoying Mother Nature in her natural state…rather than all the mowing I did this morning. I saw a quote once that said once we try to control the environment it begins to control us. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Joanna,
    I’m a relatively new blogger…lurked for a bit & have now got my own art blog 🙂 & I hope it’s ok to give yours a link there.
    These photos remind me of the river close to where I live! (Cornwall, UK) I find myself walking the dog down there when I need some soul renewal..just beautiful!
    Also just want to say that I can’t wait for the Gaian Tarot to be published, it’s just stunning. Your work is so inspirational, & the online reading is unbelievably accurate!! 🙂
    *Embarrasing sucking up now finished* LOL

    That first picture is beautiful. Reminds me of the lyrics “we all come from the mother/and to her we shall return/like a drop of rain/flowing to the ocean”
    Thanks for sharing these photos 🙂

    Joanne, yes well mowing is not particularly fun, I agree! I always pay a neighborhood kid to do it! 🙂 These photos were taken at Whatcom Falls Park, a huge city park here in Bellingham, one of the most beloved places in town. It is all the more precious to locals since the (oil) pipeline explosion in 1999 that killed three boys and devastated a huge part of the park. It led to many of our citizens becoming activists.
    Julia, you live in Cornwall, how wonderful. I got to visit parts of Cornwall on a journey to “Avalon” I did a few years ago. I sure hope to come back someday. Since one of my mermaid sisters recently moved back to Wales from Canada, there’s a good chance I will get there at some point. You do really lovely artwork yourself! Thanks for jumping in and commenting.
    Garnet, lovely association with that song. Thank you!
