Daily Draw: Sacred Sites Tarot ~ 9 of Cups
The Fountain of Youth. We have a solider lying down on the job, and a local climbing trees. Which activity will help retain youthfulness?
With this card I remember Always taking stairs two at a time. When did I stop doing that, at 50? I remember camping or staying with friends and sleeping on the floor or ground. When did that become a deciding factor in Not going somewhere, 30? I remember when I thought my hands were pretty enough to work as a hand model. When did they begin turning into my mother's hands, 40? I wouldn't go back for anything though. As my body has aged my mind has flexed and grown and I would keep that before I'd wash away the wrinkles and gray hairs and pain. And between yoga and walking I'm stronger and fitter than I was at 40 or 50 anyway...that magic is in me. This is a 9 of Cups I can understand and live with.
"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age." ~ Sophia Loren 1934-
