Broken Sanctuary

Daily Draw: iTongo Tarot ~ Ace of Swords

This Ace is represented by uKhahlamba/Drakensberg National Park in the Zulu Nation.

I'm reminded by this card of the insight and wisdom of the founders of many nations in setting aside some of the most beautiful areas in the world for the public enjoyment and use.
Sadly, they are also one of the first things to be mentioned with the potential for being sold to private parties now these same nations have spent themselves broke. Explore these sanctuaries while you still can, they now hold the potential for gated communities stuffed with McMansions.

"In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia." ~ Charles A. Lindbergh 1902-1974

  1. McMansions in national parks, what a horrible idea. Perhaps this Ace of Swords can represent a new idea that would make this unnecessary... Always the optimist :)


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
