Daily Draw: Santa Fe Tarot ~ 8 of Swords

She stands in a circle of earth power, daring the pain to pass her by this time. She holds no tools but her own mind and personal dignity.

I'm reminded by this card of all the people in the world who are wedded to pain with no relief in sight. I am grateful that is no longer the life I lived for sixteen years.

"Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind" ~ Margaret Atwood 1939-


  1. My daughter gets migraines regularly, but unfortunately due to drug allergies, the only thing she can take is Tylenol (along with the use of an ice pack). She has learned to use her mind to relax her body rather than tensing against the pain. While not magic, it does make the pain more manageable. Our minds can do amazing things, both good AND bad...

  2. This deck has an undeniable charm.

    You have the best quotes! Do you have a favorite quote resource? Anyway, just curious.


  3. I use lots of different sources but probably most often.

    Sometimes the right quote takes as long to find as the post :)


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
