I’ve talked about mental illness before. But in my opinion, as someone who’s had extensive experience in this area, you can never talk about it enough. There are lots of peeps suffering out there with one form or another of this insidious disease.
It’s been created in response to the current scandal surrounding Facebook which has seen many users ditch the social media platform. In the most damaging controversy to ever hit Facebook it has been accused of allowing another company to harvest personal data to influence the last U.S. election.
I finally got around to watching Westworld. Despite many recommendations from friends, I didn’t like it’s misogynistic overtones. Of course, once I started, I couldn’t stop. Which doesn’t mean it was perfect.
Here are my many thoughts on the Tarot of Westworld.
You’d recognise the above image then. A Weeping Angel. One of the most feared and truly terrifying creatures in the Whovian universe. They kill with a single touch. Propelling their victims back in time, before birth, so they can feed off it’s potential life energy. If you stumble into their lair, you have to keep your eye on them. Literally.

Of course, all addictions are not created equal. You can addicted to cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. You can also be addicted to coffee, or in my case, milk for forty years. Some cause more damage than others. But they all cause damage. We all want solutions.
Tarot actually has a lesson to teach about addiction, which goes something like this…
I finally watched the Wolf of Wall Street and it was just as morally repugnant as I expected it to be. I had resisted it’s siren song for that reason for years. Honestly, life is too short to expend it watching peeps behave in a disgusting manner. But I recently succumbed because I wanted to see Margot Robbie’s breakthrough performance. Margot is not only a luminescent screen goddess but a fair dinkum sheila from Australia, like me (the Australian, not the goddess part, lol).
