Shelter in Place, Day 14: Hyperion Night

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

Tarot Card of the Day: 10 of Pentacles. Long-term success. Good stuff in the physical realm.

I’m loving it!

And I’d love to tell Abigail about the card, and that everything’s going to work out. Of course it will! Our Tea and Tarot room is NOT going under. But she’d likely just punch me.

Sometimes, my partner can be an illogical, discordant incongruity. (Thank you, Lovecraft Word-of-the-Day calendar!). But she’s worried about her grandfather and Uncle Tomas, who are more vulnerable to this fiendish protoplasm.

Abs has even taken to leaving the shopping, as well as offerings of lasagna and peanut butter cake, on her grandfather’s doorstep rather than risk exposing him.

And she’s worried about our business, which has been closed since this disaster began, and about her staff. Customers have been dropping by for takeout tea and scones, and it helps. Abs won’t say so, but I can tell she thinks it’s not enough.

The Tarot, however, says otherwise – 10 of Pentacles! And the Tarot never lies. Not to me, anyway. We will survive. We will get through this. And we will deal with whatever comes next.

We always do.
