Arranged

Daily Draw: Lover's Path Tarot ~ 2 of Cups

More fallout from politically arranged marriages. Tristan was sent as proxy wooer for Mark of Cornwall. Isolde was furious about the whole business, but a spell gone wrong ended with Tristan and Isolde falling in love.

I'm reminded by this card, don't send a man to do a boy's job.

"Marriage must incessantly contend with a monster that devours everything. Familiarity." ~ Honore de Balzac 1799-1850

  1. Trying to manipulate/manage/control other people never seems to work out well.

  2. I'm not sure that it's familiarity that's the problem, but rather complacency...

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
