Keeping Her Own Counsel

Daily Draw: Buckland Romani Tarot ~ High Priestess

I wonder if she is thinking how glad she is she isn't just starting out in this world. I wonder if the Romani's who've stayed within the clans still respect the wisdom of their elders? Or their king. Is elder wisdom even practical wisdom for today's world?  Is their king any better at leadership than ours are? Or are they all corrupt and self centered also?

I'm reminded by this card, approached one on one with a willingness to listen our elders still have a lot of wisdom to share, earned in living life, observation, and the school of hard knocks. It is just that each generation seems to need to experience those hard knocks themselves. Probably why our High Priestess keeps her own counsel, and simply reflects.

"I have often thought what a melancholy world this would be without children, and what an inhuman world without the aged." ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge 1772-1834
