Feeding On The World

Daily Draw: Santa Fe Tarot ~ Chariot

Where do your home contents originate? Bananas from Fiji, canned mandarin oranges from Thailand.  Lettuce from California, celery from Mexico. Dishes from England.  My Jeep is the last model entirely made in the USA, many of my decks were printed in China. B'Ganaskiddy stands for the Harvest chariot. He brings seeds to the People and returns at harvest to gather some for the next planting season.

I'm reminded by B'Ganaskiddy if it was 1940 I'd probably be labeled islationast. As small as the world is now, that isn't an option, if it ever was. Our Chariot feeds on the commerce of the world, gives cause for some hope, creates envy, and current politics offer the opportunity for derision in spades. We are, just average, after all.

"Maggie and Millie and Molly and May went down to the beach (to play one day);
and Maggie discovered a shell that sang so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,
and Millie befriended a stranded star who's rays five languid fingers were;
and Molly was chased by a horrible thing  which raced sideways while blowing bubbles;
and May came home with a smooth round stone as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea." ~ E. E. Cummings 1894-1962

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
