|Sacred Isle Tarot - The Empress|
The Empress is a card of grace and abundance, or rampant growth and creative expression with tangible results. For me, I have to remember that all my ideas are only as good as the effort which I put behind them in order to to see them grow. The Empress does al of what she does from a place of love and surety that growth is inevitable.
My boy recently looked through some shaky amateur footage of his basketball games, and while he found plenty of great things to feature in his video, he lamented the lack of the things he wished he could showcase that were not there. "If you want to see it on film, you have to do it. I can only film what you do," I told him in the semi-sarcastic way I sometimes have, and the same is true for me. If I want to see my garden grow, I have to plant the seeds. If I want to see my dreams bloom in the full glory of their potential, I have to nurture them and take the steps. It's that simple. And that hard.

I can't recommend them enough for beautiful, functional and well priced apps!
