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.
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 handsome 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 at this time. 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 to laughingdakini at twc 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
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.
I’m very excited that I am moving my tarot office to uptown Kingston, NY. The wonderful old building in Woodstock where I have been working out of for a couple of years is for sale, and so moving makes the most sense despite having had a great time there and really appreciating the landlord and the great downtown Woodstock location.
Details will follow, but it looks like the first of February I will open the new place, with a lot of new options, like twenty-minute sessions as well as the forty-minute sessions, and one day a month with pay-what-you-want. I’ll let you all know!
I had been taking a break from doing the candles for a few months due to being busy and feeling a little under the weather. On 12/16/19, I decided to just plain do a candle each for me and for my partner, and WITHIN THE FIRST FIFTEEN MINUTES the partner brought in the day’s mail, which contained a holiday card with an unexpected check for $5,000.00 for me. It seemed like an obvious reminder to do the candles even if life seems too busy or if my health feels droopy, as can happen in extreme cold sometimes. I will let my regular clients know when the service resumes, and I think it will be fairly soon. I’m sorry there has been a break from doing them and look forward to resuming them soon.
Since my business cards have my old email address on them, some folks are still trying to reach me that way, but I do not get those emails. PLEASE ONLY CONTACT ME AT LAUGHINGDAKINI@TWC.COM and not my old email address which is still on some of the business cards. The current one gets checked every day. Any other email is no longer current for me and I can’t access them.
Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.
