Daily Draw: Tarot of the Cloisters ~ 4 of Swords
My back has been killing me for two weeks. None of my normal routines for dealing with chronic pain touches it. When my friend Ruth's cancer returned it was in her back, a pain she ignored for 4 months because she had a job to finish and didn't have time to see her doctor. Of course it killed her 18 months later. We currently do not have health insurance, one of America's many great unwashed.
I'm reminded by this card to snap out of it. Pain is one of the three constants in my life, I'm just fine. Give it a rest. What will be will be. It's all in my mind. It's just stress. I'll be laughing about this shortly. Or the ever refreshing parental fix, "Quit your whining or I'll give you something to cry about".
"While others may argue about whether the world ends with a bang or a whimper, I just want to make sure mine doesn't end with a whine." ~ Barbara Gordon, I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can
Tarot of the Cloisters is the brain rinse for last week's Liber T, polar opposites. Created and Illustrated by Michelle Leavitt, Published by U.S. Games Systems 1993. It has been out of print for years, but a little digging turns up still sealed decks...at a price.
