Lennie Week 4 - White Owl + Giveaway!

Weisse Eule
Tomorrow I'll showcase another free resource on-line, but today I wanted to go with a deck that takes tradition and adds a touch of colour to it: the White Owl (AGM-Urania, 2008).  There are various Blue and Red Owls, and it's good to check carefully before you buy, as some have playing card inserts, while others have verses in one of a number of languages.  Overall, I prefer playing card inserts.  Still, the verses can be fun in that they give some tips on how to read cards via the distance method, as well as giving base meanings right there on the card.  I'll show some decks with verses later this week...

Anyhow, the White Owl is always with playing card inserts, and has fun, funky colouring.  Both the Ship's sails and the Lilies are pink, the Storks are black, and the Paths has a multi-coloured signpost, to name but a few.  As for today's cards, we have Letter + Coffin + Whips.

The papertrail of an ending leads to difficult discussions.
Headaches over paperwork require a do-over.
Doctor's prescription: exercise!

All of these feel relevant, and perhaps even connected, to me today.  I'm still dealing with the troubles that surfaced last week, and have paperwork to fill in.  Not only are there some tough choices which bring up inner discussions, but dealing with various different individuals and institutions also means repeating stuff a fair bit - definitely a pain.  So, some exercise would be a good way to take my mind off it all, if only for a short time :D

I am grateful for exercise: good for body, mind and spirit!

And now for the giveaway ;)  I have had this deck for a while, but recently decided I needed a book by Fiechter that only came in a set with the deck.  So, I ended up with a second, shrink-wrapped, unopened copy with box and LWB to giveaway!  To be entered in the draw, all you have to do is comment on this post, easy as that :D  The giveaway will close on 24th Feb and I'll randomly select a name on the 25th.  Good luck, everyone!

  8. Sitting on your rear end doing nothing doesn't sound like an idea you're going to be allowed to get away with, is it? :)
    Good luck! As it happens, I wanted a coffin day, however, I feel as if I've been whipped into getting things sorted, whether I wanted to or not! :)

  16. I would love to be in this competition :) Also, I'd like to recommend hot Yoga for exercise. Hot Yoga has changed my life and cleansed me body, mind and soul. It's a journey as much as a form of exercise and it's also amazing for your skin :) I'm doing a 30 day challenge at the moment though which is a bit of a killer :P

    1. Hi ruthy82, you're in :) As for Hot Yoga, been doing it since the 90's, and love it ;) I don't do it every day, but it's a great practice, even without the heated room. I'm not so keen on actual hot rooms, as your muscles can get overly soft without sufficient strength to support that degree of stretch, and some people end up with injuries because of it. However, the structure of the practice is great. Okay, former yoga teacher rant now over ;)
