Innies and Outies

Daily Draw: Thoth Tarot ~ Art/Temperance

I like hidden object games. This deck can be a similar exercise. Can you spot the raven on the skull cauldron guarding or sipping putrefaction? This card features most of the usual suspects found on the Lovers card, now oppositfied via alchemy.

Don't ask me, no clue. But applying yesterday's card to today's Art, having the same thing, only different is a pattern well represented in my own life. Which are or were all the same thing only different.  Folk are funny...

"Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it," ~  George Santayana 1863-1952  Forbes Dec. 2015

"There's no such thing as a free lunch" contradicts "The best things in life are free."

"You're never too old to learn," argue some, but others disagree. "You can't teach an old dog new tricks."

"Birds of a feather flock together," and yet, "Opposites attract."

"Fortune favors the bold," unless you believe that "Discretion is the better part of valor."

  1. Nice. I love reading and seeing the oddities and contrasts in things. Often pondering those nonsensical bits of this n that.

  2. Funny how being at an extreme (opinion-wise) can make us feel more powerful but less peaceful. Santayana was a wise man.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
