I also drew three cards from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004), including the four extra cards published separately, but which match.

A few weeks ago, Arwen talked about how she considers truth sacred. My own approach is a little more flexible. Just as I wouldn't make love to my DH in public, so there are other things that I also don't choose to share in public. I rarely outright lie, but I do keep some things private when I can. Just today, I was faced by this dilemma in trying to increase my social networking. The software wouldn't let me link up my blog with my official page, only with my personal page, which I don't want to do. This isn't just about the personal page, though, it's about how I try to keep my life compartmentalised, how I'm still in the broom closet. And that is becoming harder and harder with the way so many sites these days want to link everything up.
What it comes down to, I guess, is that lies, even white lies like, "No, I'm not on Facebook," create barriers. And that's not always a bad thing: sometimes I'd like a barrier between myself and someone I don't necessarily like or trust fully. So, it's more about recognising and accepting those barriers, choosing where you want them, being aware of why they feel necessary. And sometimes they may block me from something or someone that I would rather get closer to. Still, that's a risk I take.
There's something there, too, about acknowledging that sometimes those barriers may fall, accidentally or on purpose, and being aware of what the consequences might be, and whether I can live with them....
