Daily Draw: Faeries' Oracle ~ The Soul Shrinker
Hard to believe there are fun and funny cards in this deck, considering the darkish cards that have been coming up. The Soul Shrinker is the one tucking into bitter fruit when we do something malicious or wish a curse on someone.
I'm reminded by this card, back in those 20's that mostly embarrassed me, there was one man who I cursed maliciously (double serving!) and I'm still waiting to dance on his grave with delight. The only reason it still draws darkness from me is because it was my Rob he hurt, not me. Those are hurts that go deep, when they happen to someone we love, and probably why there is still a shrunken puckery spot on my soul there.
the dark colony of night, when I consider man's magnificent capacity for malice, madness, folly, envy, rage, and destructiveness, I wonder
whether we shall not end up as breakfast for newts and polyps." ~ Leo Rosten 1908-1997
