A recent not-tarot (oracle?) image from the free weekly email The Sloth and The Manatee (found at https://betsystreeter.substack.com)

Not-Tarot card: Ocean Sun
This one is about energy and how it converts and travels.
Looking at a rock you can see the origins of the planet. Looking at a puddle you can see the water cycle. Looking at a tree you can see that it’s a whole new batch of leaves and bark, like a recording of tree-ness.
Where does your energy come from? Where does it go?
These come out weekly at https://betsystreeter.substack.com

This is Hitch. Hitch knows that the infinite social scroll is exhausting, which is why Hitch recommends books. Self-paced, hand-held, random-access books. Like this one: Sofa Stories, a picture book for grownups by @betsystreeter and @monteiro .
Numbered signed edition at https://etsy.com/shop/betsystreeter or available where books are sold.
