Devise and Bequeath

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Spirit ~ Brother Earth/Knight Coins

Akin to mining the diamonds in your own back yard, this figure is amending the soil and carefully choosing the type of seeds to sow. Easy to say in black and white, harder in the real world.

Our appointments to rewrite our wills begin this morning. Funny how hard it is to verbalize the general ideas we've been  harboring. It was much easier 20+ years ago when the whole family was younger and a little money could have made a big difference. 20+ years on we can see how most have ignored their soil entirely. Oh well, perhaps we'll go out like mother, having spent the last penny and not a care in the world.

"People who under ordinary circumstances are perfectly upright and amiable, go as curly as corkscrews and foam at the mouth, whenever they hear the words 'I devise and bequeath." Dorothy L. Sayers 1893-1957 Strong Poison

  1. Spending it all wouldn't be such a bad thing, as long as you both had what you needed while you needed it. :)

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
