Love That Brain

Daily Draw: Mythic Tarot ~ Ace of Swords

Athene, goddess of justice. She did not initiate the curse of the House of Atreus, but she did end it. With her (enormous!) double edged sword.

I'm reminded by this card, and human kind's ability to think past a situation, to think beyond an event, when one thing ends our mind thinks up something to replace it. When something new begins we immediately think about ways to grow it, alter it. Everyone that draws an Ace of Swords today will have a unique way of interpreting it, and it will still be the Ace of Swords. How cool is that?

"Imagine the brain, that shiny mound of being, that mouse-gray parliament of cells, that dream factory, that petit tyrant inside a ball of bone, that huddle of neurons calling all the plays, that little everywhere, that fickle pleasuredome, that wrinkled wardrobe of selves stuffed into the skull like too many clothes into a gym bag." ~ Diane Ackerman 1970-   An Alchemy of Mind. The Marvel and Mystery of the Brain


  1. Wonderful quote! I love calling our mind a "dream factory"!
