Chasing Chickens

Chasing Chickens

I assisted my father as a chicken farmer up until I graduated from college, I started at the 4 or 5 helping out, raising chickens from egg and down to helping to prep them as food. I learned at an early age to understand and appreciate the food we grew and raised, raising them with care and admiration.

My favorite thing was visiting the hens early in the morning and after they laid their eggs, I loved their relaxed chatter. To this day that sound still makes me smile and is a comfort to hear. If only I could share an audio file.

Today I did my one-card draw and pulled the King of Pentacles. As you can see in the image, keywords are listed, and the little write up that accompanies it (I use learntarot.com to reference Continue reading “Friday One Card Draw”
