Although I loved the name Mourning Glory (named after my great great grandmother) it was only a part of my personality. I've been a tarot reader forever and lately I've been doing more tarot readings for people than I have been making dresses. I needed a new look for my business that wasn't solely based on dressmaking. I started by redesigning my business cards at first with a new logo which I love. But I quickly realized I needed to change more than just my business cards! It was time to hit the reset button.
The new name comes from an old song by Led Zeppelin. I've always loved this line...
Leaves are falling all around, It's time I was on my way.
Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay.
But now it's time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way.
For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way.
Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I've got one thing I got to do...
That song has always made me think of Seattle in the fall. The cold rain has moved in and fall and Halloween is on its way. I think of a beautiful moonlit trail through the woods lined with ancient evergreens and moss. The autumn moon shines through the trees to light the path towards true happiness. That song has always just made me feel hopeful and nostalgic. So this new name has significant meaning to me.
This blog will still be about alternative fashion as well as tarot. They are both a huge part of me. Who knows where all this is headed but it's really exciting for me to share my love of tarot reading with everyone!
