Daily Draw: R-W Tarot ~ The World

Many readers get all fuzzy and damp eyed when they get this card, feel it predicts a perfect outcome. Sorry, no such thing, not in this world anyway. We can come close occasionally, a beautiful day spent having fun with people we care about or doing something we love but the real world always raises its head before long.

I'm reminded by this card there is a blessing somewhere in everything but nothing is perfect, and nothing lasts.

"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert.
Near them, on the sand, half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, tell that its sculptor well those passions read which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things; the hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:"My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings: Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing else remains. Round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare the lone and level sands stretch far away"
