Skimming

Daily Draw: Mandala Astrological Tarot ~ 8 of Wands

Optimism. Perhaps the wind  beneath the wings of the world? More so than money, sex, ego? Or a knack for visionary thinking?

I'm reminded by this card the most common vision of the 8 of Wands shows eight sticks or arrows going up or down with great speed. Skimming. We skim or share bits of knowledge all day, most of it out of mind by the next. To stop and listen or think on a subject draws out the bits we missed or didn't recognize as applicable, as adding to the richness of our life.

"General jackdaw culture, very little more than a collection of charming miscomprehensions, untargeted enthusiasms, and a general habit of skimming." ~ William Bolitho 1890-1930

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
