Jackanapes

Daily Draw: The Brownies Oracle ~ Wheel

At first glance it seems the big walking wheel has fallen over and crushed many Brownies. Closer observation sees many Brownies actually carrying the wheel across the landscape, toward a ravine.

I have to wonder why. Is this Palmer Cox's reaction to the wheel of fortune? Advice for drama queens? Response to crushing news or disappointment? General Brownie jackanapes? I'm reminded by this card of Ginger's proclivity for jaywalking. Her theory? Never look at oncoming traffic and they will never hit you. Maybe we are prone to take the Wheel too seriously.

"You oughta be thankful.
A whole heaping lot.
For the people and places.
You’re lucky you’re not." ~ Dr. Seuss 1904-1991

  1. Crashed over like that, it reminds me of times when life seems to stand still, both good times and bad.

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
