The Hit List

The Hit List – Divination is IN

by Theresa Reed on September 22, 2018

“Is divination out?” That was the question posed to me recently. Apparently, there are a few folks in the mystical realms who are once again trying to convince the community that divination or the dreaded “f-word” – fortune-telling – are no longer in vogue. Nope, instead, some sort of therapeutic law of attraction mashup is […]

The Hit List – On experience

by Theresa Reed on September 15, 2018

In the instant gratification world we live in, it only takes a swipe for something to happen. So I guess it should come as no surprise that people expect that they can master a subject in ultra-short order and start profiting from that said “expertise.”  The idea of taking one’s time to develop a skill […]

The Hit List – Forgive or forget

by Theresa Reed on September 8, 2018

A long time ago, a friend betrayed me. The pain reached all the way down to my marrow and stung like a thousand bees all at once. There would be no going back, no healing, no friendship or contact with her ever again.  Those wounds are still there to this day. Except now, there is […]

The Hit List – Still breathing

by Theresa Reed on September 1, 2018

I’ve written a few weeks back about my manuscript fiasco. Since that time, I’ve been able to patch my rough draft together into something that resembles a book. But now…the editing begins in earnest. Frankly, I prefer the editing part. Trimming things down, weeding out the grammar issues, and wrangling the writing not to mention […]

The Hit List – Squirrel Trouble

by Theresa Reed on August 25, 2018

Last Sunday, I had a bucketful of good intentions. I would have a stress-free day and write my face off. After getting coffee, of course. But when I arrived back at the crib, a baby squirrel changed up the whole order of my day. As I got out of the car, I noticed something lying […]

The Hit List – Bit by bit

by Theresa Reed on August 18, 2018

There’s an old Yoruban proverb that I read in a book a long time ago that went something like this: “Bit by bit, we eat the head of the rat.” (I believe the book might be Ibase Orisa: Ifa Proverbs, Folktales, Sacred  History & Prayer by Awo Fa Lokun Fatunmbi.) Sounds pretty gross but the proverb is […]

The Hit List – Apologies accepted

by Theresa Reed on August 11, 2018

This past week, my daughter and I were discussing the art of apologizing. It seems the Mercury retrograde had brought out a few misunderstandings – and we wanted to clear the air immediately. Apologies accepted all around. Life moved on. We’re good. Sincere apologies form the foundation for healthy relationships. I truly believe that. It’s […]

The Hit List – There are good people out there

by Theresa Reed on August 4, 2018

Last week, I had a no-good, crummy, very bad week. Like, a total suckfest. The worse part? I lost my mail. Yep, I was walking around with my mail hanging in the side pocket of my adorable kitten and spaceship camo purse when somehow the bills fell out. I didn’t even notice until I got […]

The Hit List – Helpers need help too

by Theresa Reed on July 28, 2018

I had a rough week. Like, super-sucky. It started out well enough: the husband was gone for the week, which meant I would be able to declutter and do my work in peace. I did manage to get a bunch of junk out of the house and some writing done.  But then everything seemed to […]

The Hit List – Brushes and Cards 2018

by Theresa Reed on July 21, 2018

Two weekends ago, Chris Zydel and I hosted our second Brushes and Cards workshop, a day-long painting and tarot mashup. It was fun, insightful, and a fab way to connect to the cards. Plus: a day with Chris Zydel is my idea of time well spent! Here are some pics from our epic shindig! We’re […]
