The Last Drink Of The Night

The Last Drink Of The Night

It's not as good as the first, but still
it does the trick, whatever trick you need it
to do. My life, laid out in front of me like
cards, what next? There are words that make
you feel everything and nothing at the same
time -- Novocaine, morphine, amnesia of desire
of sadness. Ask and you shall feel nothing
for as long as it takes to break open your
soul. I put my crystal ball in the dishwasher
today and it emerged, gleaming.

Michelle's Spell of the Day
Tarot meaning of nine:
Nine's hold energy of attainment and completion, but with that closure, we understand we are also faced with renewal. There is no ending without a beginning (indeed the Latin word for nine is novem which shares its root with novus, meaning 'new').

The number nine is an important one in the Old Norse religions and myths...there are Nine Worlds, Odin impaled himself to the world tree for nine nights to gain knowledge, after killing the great serpent Jormangondur, Thor took nine steps before he died from the monster's venom, etc.

Nice pic, btw. :)

Last drink of the night... is the last drink the best or worst when its the first drink of the morning?

Because the last drink of the night is a one trick pony maybe we should have a second or third last drink to get us to the right trick of feeling everything and nothing at once.

I always found the last drink of the night a rather sad moment. I wanted to prolong it.

Hiya Chickie, Up north we have a charming and appropriate saying that coins the last drink of the night. We call it "one for the ditch". HeHee. No ditches for us!!xoxo
