Worst We Have To Offer

Daily Draw: Minchiate Etruria ~ Devil

A simple recognizable word for the worst we have to offer.

I'm reminded by this card to wonder if bad rides on our shoulder more often than good or is that the impression because bad is the much heavier burden?

"I am not an angel and do not pretend to be. That is not one of my roles. But I am not the devil either. I am a woman and I would like so to be judged." ~  Maria Callas 1923-1977

    1. ah, but that is why I don't believe in the devil. no one makes us do anything. but many use him as a place to lay blame with no consequences of their own.

  5. Another name for our self-absorption to the degree we are willing to harm others.

    1. I looked at the image before I uploaded it, what looks like a mesh toeless sock is actually cross hatching shading by the artist. There is so much to be gotten out of this deck!

    1. I'm not sure what you are referring to? I post to my blog every morning. I use a different deck every week though, otherwise I'd be getting into image copyright.

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
