God met duif

Our Lady of the Fruits of the Earth

 Now the summer is over its height, inspired by this beautiful picture, I will answer the question today: "What is my biggest bliss this summer till now?" 


                                                             


I pulled grail ten (ten of Cups) from the Arthurian Tarot. A very happy card,  meaning happiness and fulfilment.

Depicted in this version is an open tower on a sunny beach in which the grail is held; a place of peace and contentment. The tower is protected by a thorn and an apple tree, both feary trees. I love this card, the openness, the sun, the breeze on the beach, and the seagulls. You can enlarge the card by clicking on it.


                                                                                                                  

I have been there, so to say, on our holiday this summer. It was very warm and sunny then. We went to a little lake, to the beach and to Amsterdam. My daugther took part in an opera workshop in Autzterlitz, and sometimes my mother came visiting on her bike, very lighthearted. The thorn and the apple tree acted as our guardians. Great bliss!
