The Written Word

©McCracken & Worthington
Today's card is a reminder that I have writing to do, and also that I have a contract to keep.  I haven't been writing on this blog much, in large part as I'm trying to get on with writing the actual companion book to this deck :)

The Letter also talks about correspondence in general, reminding us of the importance of keeping in contact.  Christmas is a good time for that: sending and receiving cards, connecting with people we may not have heard from for a while.  The Letter can also show the necessity of leaving a paper trail, and keeping our accounts in order.

These days, the written word takes so many forms: letters, emails, texts, tweets, blogs.  Then there are things like receipts, invoices, contracts, articles.

I'm sure there are plenty more ways we use the written word.  What are your favourites?

  1. One of my favourite ways to use the written word is to deliver card readings. I find it more effective, for me, than live readings. Everything is there in black and white and can be kept for future review, unlike a live reading, where both you and the client tend to forget exactly what it was you said. (At least that's the way it goes for me). Readings in writing are definitely best for me!

    I also like the written word for journaling, journeying and meditation.

  2. Hi Carla,

    I agree, written readings can be powerful, and it's nice to be able to go back and read them again. Journaling, and journeying are also things I enjoy, but I've never quite figured out a written meditation...
