The Act of Untethering

Adj. 1. untethered – not confined or restricted with a tether. unbound – not restrained or tied down by bonds.

Faced with this scene in the alternative universe I have been inhabiting, I had cause to ponder upon what is tethering me at the moment, restraining me.

  • What has me tethered? The Death card reveals so much. After carrying the sweet soul of my beloved dog to lie in a fertile space death still has me tethered. I am restless, wandering almost aimlessly, numbed by the void that has been left behind. The place seems ‘deathly’ quiet and I would have her back, pain free, in a nano second. I have found it has been necessary to put myself into a kind of convalescence and I have isolated myself.
  • What is blocking my path? Profound grief at the loss of a companion who has walked with me and born witness as I have sought to reinvent myself.
  • How can I break free? Ultimately I will break free, especially when I meet and work with matched minds.
