Daily Draw: Oracle of the Radiant Sun ~ Mars in the 11th House
When I drew this card I mumbled harangued thought war is stupid war is weird was ever a war worth the cost in lives? Was ever a war not instigated by the gray beards? Have the soldiers ever had shoes that were comfortable? Was a sword ever worn that wasn't awkward and movement limiting? Was there ever a knob of land held at huge cost that wasn't abandoned when the war moved on as it always does? They had numbers in Vietnam, I died for hill 314 has a nice ring for the families doesn't it.
All that said, my little rebellion this morning was working out in a word document how to print Friday's quilt mystery clue with just the pertinent images and directions. Forty-two minutes later...was the ink saved worth forty-two minutes of my life? War is like a ball of saved string, the first string looks simple, but shortly there are a thousand strings all knotted together and no way to get the eighty-first string out without disassembling the ball...No good answers here. Don't start but if you do blow them off the map, get it over and done with? If this incarnation of civilization all goes up in smoke is it any loss? Not in my mind. But then I'm on the prod about my lost forty-two minutes aren't I?
