Daily Draw: Journey to the Orient Tarot ~ Queen of Swords
I knew this card would come up today, and when it did I wanted to shove it back in the pack. My mother's mind, always sharp as a sword, is failing. Today I travel to see if my little sister and I can come to some safe situation for her.
I'm reminded by this card, I was supposed to be the safe situation, and I've failed. Dementia and cancer, what a pair of sharpies we'd make.
"Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis." Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882
The cards open previously closed doors to my own heart with their merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
