Daily Draw: Greenwood Tarot ~ 7 of Coins/Stones
We were on the road at 4:30 AM yesterday, put 538 miles of beautiful America under our wheels and were tired when we got here. First time this has ever happened, I literally did not sleep a wink. So of course I thought this draw was all about me...
I'm reminded by this Healing card, of books I've recently read. Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Finding Me by Michelle Knight, both prisoners in very divergent ways and places. I doubt either one of them were ever allowed a peaceful sleep or a good meal or a day free of pain. Who was I to be cranky as I drank my fresh brewed coffee and ate my fresh muffin, and walked my doggies in the gorgeous morning...I wish the hope of Healing to all unjustly imprisoned and tortured, the world is full of their tears.
