Daily Draw: The Classic Tarot DellaRocca ~ Queen of Wands
I look at the raiment; silk, brocade, satin, elegant trims, dainty little shoes, and wonder how they ever got them clean. There isn't anything cloth in her attire that wouldn't require dry cleaning today. And the ancient Egyptians with their beautiful linens, much of which was worn knife pleated. Ever own a linen skirt? You look at it, it wrinkles...what did they use to press with?
I'm reminded by this beautiful queen the scientists and archaeologists don't have a lock on the why and how questions, I'm full of them. I think I'll give this queen a ring, see does she want to do lunch. I'll bet she'll literally give me the clothes off her back in trade for my modern wonder fabrics.
"Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your body and less of your raiment." ~ Kahlil Gibran 1883-1930
