Daily Draw: Tarot de Paris ~ 7 of Swords
Thomas makes a good point with this card; by the very choices that move us to where we want or need to be, we often manage to cut ourselves off from someone or something else.
My hindsight is fine, I can look back on my life and see lots of actions and choices that put me in the loner category. That was never the result I was working toward but it's what I got. As a side issue I wonder if someone who is really at the top, say Hillary Clinton, has made any true friends in the last 30 years or just knows millions of people. Oprah Winfrey? She likes lots of people, it's in her nature, but as far as I can tell Stedman and Gayle King are her friends. And go back to 'before' the climb.
"The stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet when we want shoes." ~ Jonathan Swift 1667-1745
