Daily Draw: Runic Tarot ~ Ger/Jera
In agricultural societies, a good or bad harvest meant life or death and what you couldn't grow yourself could be expensive or difficult to get. Now we have grocery stores and EBT cards and a comparative bed of roses life.
I look at Ger and wonder what my harvest has been, of the fallow years devoted to anger and illness. Of the productive years and all we've accomplished and gained. Of a working life with few vacations but fun every day Rob was home; I'd choose that again. An overharvest of possessions, oh yes, I'd redo that in an instant. Totally differently. And I wonder what exactly am I harvesting now. Will I look back in ten years and wonder, "what was I thinking?".
"Life is not a harvest. Just because you have an apple doesn’t mean you have an orchard. You have an apple. Put a fence around it. Once you have put a fence around everything you value, then you have the total circle of your heart." ~ Sheila Heti 1976- How Should a Person Be?
