Conflict

Daily Draw: Legend the Arthurian Tarot ~ King of Spears/Wands

We met Pellinore in the 7 of Cups, he of the obsession with the Growling Beast. He is also credited with killing one of the rebel kings, King Lot, whose sons later were knights of the round table...where they spent their time nursing a blood feud with Pellinore's sons.

I'm reminded by this card, life is complicated, no matter who you are, what you have, what you do. In myth or real life it is the conflicts that move the story along, lest we die of sheer boredom.

"Boredom is the shriek of unused capacities." ~ Saul Bellow 1915-2005   The Adventures of Augie March

  1. I wonder if we don't sometimes create them for entertainment.

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
