Bulling On

Daily Draw: Minchiate Etruria ~ Strength

Stubbornness.

I'm reminded by this card how many times I've just bulled on, sure I was on the right track. Instinct isn't everything. Common sense helps.

"Our instincts are at war. Each instinct, if you listen to it, will claim to be gratified at the expense of the rest." ~ C.S. Lewis 1898-1963

    1. it is a beautiful deck, I was surprised LoS let it go out of print so soon. Lots of cards but this particular edition shuffles like a dream.

  4. Makes me think of 'speak softly and carry a big stick'

  5. assuming the stick carrier is in the right, rather than just thinking they are. That is where I go off the rails sometimes because of assumptions and narrow vision

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
