What makes you feel powerful?
I don't /need/ to feel powerful anymore. I'm sure there was a time -- in my youth, as I was grappling towards success -- that I did. But now, or at this phase in life, I don't want or need power at all. Not in my personal nor professional life. In fact, letting go has become my mission. The more perceived "power" you have, the less interesting you are (not to mention hated and/or feared). If anything makes me feel "powerful" it would be those who /really/ hate/dislike me following me around. lol...Can't help BUT feel powerful when this happens. But I don't seek it out, nor do I want it.

I like those little opening page questions :) Even if they are inane.

There's a difference, I think, in empowerment (or controlling your own world) and power, however slight :D

Yep, it's a slight difference :D

But I've found that I have a natural ability to lead, and my confidence and personal empowerment, leads to me having power over other things :)

As do *I*; however, I also make the decision to do it or not. I choose not to. Been there, done that, finished the t-shirt :)

In the editorial world, everyone /tried/ to wear it, but very few of us successfully did :)

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
