Tarot by Jacqueline | Lessons from the Ancestors

  Grandma and Grandpa Graves had passed some time ago.

Tarot by Jacqueline | Who’s Zooming Who?

In the past year and a half, the calls for correction in what some call ‘cultural appropriation’ have been echoed through blog posts and social media to the point that I have decided that I too, must speak my peace. It is in the spirit of fairness to all cultures that I have a viewpoint that I think is being overlooked and not considered when we look at the bigger picture of all of us accepting each other and what we bring to...
