I spilled an entire cup of orange juice all over my laptop's keyboard.

[tumblr.com profile] spinecrawlerrush is paying for the repairs, but it's still kind of traumatizing. >_> This is the first time this has happened to me in ten years of owning (and eating around) laptops, and of course it would happen to the expensive one.

Anyway, our writing may be slowed down a bit in the meantime. >_< We're currently using [personal profile] chozomind / [personal profile] burning_ground's spare laptop, Hiraeth, and it doesn't have anything set up the way we are used to.

(Incidentally, the tarot deck that [personal profile] chozomind made is really cool! You should check it out.)

From The Divine Witches of Cyberspace, by Leigh Alexander:

Nathalie Lawhead, Weil’s Monkey Fortunetell collaborator, believes faith bestows certain psychological advantages, and as [people] our tendency to read meaning into nearly anything means that tools of fortune, even digital art games, can help us psychoanalyze ourselves and give ourselves appropriate care.

I've personally found tarot to be extremely useful for things like realizing what is important to me, and what I am really afraid of. Not everyone owns a deck or knows how to do readings, though, and I think there's a lot of room for different apps and other aids to help people gain insight.

(I actually know someone who's working on just such a project, but they have not taken the wraps off of it yet.)

I don't usually write about the occult, because I don't think about it a whole lot. I'm not as scared of it as I used to be, though, and can actually think objectively about it ... both in terms of "what is the evidence for this," and in terms of "what works for me personally" and "was this a good experience". And seeing as how [personal profile] avia, [personal profile] spectrum_x and [personal profile] mesh_mask are all writing about it lately, I thought I'd chime in with my thoughts and experiences.
