I made a little update to https://laughingdakinitarot.wordpress.com/what-to-expect-during-a-reading-with-me/ to address concerns that I might be ‘too psychic’ for some people, who feared I might have registered-trademark Special Powers that would know too much about them if they came to see me. Nope, I don’t. I’m more of a precision tool for certain things, and it would be foolish to waste that if it wasn’t wanted and didn’t benefit the client. So, please review that page, and feel free to ask questions here or at my email laughingdakini at twc dot com.
The new office in uptown Kingston, NY, will be open by appointment on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Be aware that weather may affect the appointments–too icy or snowy equals ‘not safe to drive’, so I will not be there and will reschedule.
The office in Woodstock, NY, will be permanently closed as of January 31, 2020, due to the pending sale of the building it was in. It was a lovely place, but so is the new one, in a charming old Victorian house at a crossroads, interestingly enough loosely surrounded by antique churches and some gorgeous big old trees.
The way to make an appointment is to email me at laughingdakini at twc dot com–I don’t use a voice phone for the business. That is also the email to use for questions that are not addressed online–the website is incomplete and not fully as I intend, but life has been very busy. New clients will be expected to prepay the first appointment by Paypal or Google etc. to manticore517 at gmail dot com to assure that none of the appointment gets spent fiddling with payment–it seems a waste of time, especially in a 20-minute appointment. The address will be given to new clients after appointments are confirmed.
Details are still emerging so this post will get editted–for example, there will be longer hours as the days grow longer, and I am trying to arrange a day once a month for pay-what-you-want–but I wanted to have this current information available for those who have been asking. I look forward to seeing you there! Please feel free to email laughingdakini at twc dot com with questions or to book your appointment now.
Thanks and best wishes
In our community chat In Mexico, here, they sent this excellent summary to avoid contagion. I share it with you because it is very clear: The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular (eye), […]
via USEFUL INFORMATION FROM JUDY DYKSTRA-BROWN ON COVID 19 — Serendipity Seeking Intelligent Life on Earth
A local (Ulster County, NY) nature-oriented group, Wild Earth, provides opportunities for camping and outdoor activities. They just sent out this list of their best resources for the current situation. It includes health links, policy links, hotline numbers, all that kind of stuff, as well as information on hiking responsibly and not contributing to the climate change problems. They also want to hear ideas for more links to share (their email is included on the page). Please check this out if interested, and consider following their emails if you want to stay in touch with a nice group interested in preserving outdoors for all.

Thanks and best wishes to all
I only ever tend to write about me me me and the tarot business here, but I wanted people to know about this brilliant idea someone smart came up with. https://www.socialdistancingfestival.com/
The site features magnificent and diverse works of dancing, music, theater, all kinds of things, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York to the Paris Opera to many multicultural works, and they are free for all of us to check out. Enjoy, and they are always looking for more work to feature, especially if its performance has been cancelled due to the coronavirus reactions, so maybe your work can get there too, with this great international platform available.
It isn’t here yet, but I have ordered a phone dedicated ONLY to making appointments and confirming payments and other business-related issues, so soon you will have the option to text me or leave a voice message for appointments (I will never pick it up but messages about appointments can be left there and replied to promptly). This will make it easier for those who want to contact me to see if there is an available spot that day, or for any other appointment-related situations. I hate cell phones, but in this case, dragging a laptop (my favourite dinosaur) around everywhere to confirm email-made appointments and payments just wouldn’t be practical. It will never be answered in person, only by voicemail, and spammers will get nowhere and their own cooties will very likely fly back in the direction of any phone/text spammer; this is going to be for business appointments only.
I will post the number as soon as I get it, which should be within a week or so.
Thanks for your patience, everybody!
I do not see that this sent itself out to the readers, so please forgive me if it did. I just wrote https://laughingdakinitarot.com/what-to-expect-during-a-reading-with-me/ to help people get an idea of what to expect from my in-person readings.
Check it out.
