Proverbi Figurati Needed To Knit:
Do I see myself as the cherub of largess? The benevolent benefactor? The Sister taking in aid of others? The down and out who could really use a hand up? In a well lived life I can say all these things. Which part needs some knitting? Today, the Sister I think.
When I had my brick and mortar salon I often sponsored others by bring them to the attention of my clients. Maybe this year it's time to Walk the Walk myself. A quick google shows the American Cancer Society is doing a local kick-off tonight, for this year's Walk For Life and Bark For Life...something I and my doggies could do for others? Hell yes. I was out after dark having fun last night. Two nights out in the same week let alone the same month? These cards are little instigators...
Need to Unravel:
By the same token, there are things I'd love to do for the betterment of the world; for one, take every person who raped in the name of a cause/war and hang them by the testicles until dead. Would that help lighten the load of the world? I don't know, don't even know if it would make me feel better, probably not. What did our mother's teach us? Two wrongs don't make a right.
I need to let some of the crushing weight of the world go in order to clear my mind for fights that might or can make a difference. Engaging in unwinnable global battles of the mind obscures real potential for personal movement and change, within and without.
Mitelli's Proverbs? Googlishly translated:
I grow never too poor to give alms.
He who has nothing but anger dies.
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.
