There was once an advertisement whose message was 'the mind is a terrible thing to waste'. Yesterday I was reading the current issue of Smithsonian Magazine and was impressed as always with just how learned a person can become.
I'm reminded by this card our IQ is probably set at birth. I will never be able to design and build an engine, or understand calculus, or translate the Dead Sea Scrolls, but I can pick up a book knowing when I've finished it I will have learned something new. That is a gift I treasure.
"I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book." ~ Groucho Marx 1890-1977
The Bosch Tarot was published in 2000 by Lo Scarabeo, based on 16th century art and times of Hieronymus Bosch. Last used here in 2008.
