Foundations. The great pyramids were already ancient when Tutankhamun ruled Egypt 4000 years ago. Their groundwork and plans were solidly based, and each new layer maintained the same thoughtfulness and care, leaving us a legacy that astounds and inspires still.
As I enter a new phase of my life I'm reminded by this card to put the same kind of foundation under me as I move forward. I haven't got so many years left that I can make some huge financial mistake and recover from it.
- Be careful what you wish for, you might get it
- Don't bite off more than you can chew
- Build in haste, repent in leisure
I don't know why I feel such urgency to move forward, and I'm sick of spending my life being plagued by cautionary roadblocks."When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I'm sure it made the work seem that much more urgent." ~ George Carlin 1937-2008
