Stumble Away

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ 8 of Cups

"A drinking melody by eight gods". This card is dedicated to poets and artists of the Tang dynasty, 618-907 BCE. I wonder if being remembered for this is preferable to not being remembered at all?

I said this once before here, but every single part of my life I regret was fueled by alcohol. I don't want to remember it, let alone being remembered because of it. Walking away isn't always a sad/bad thing.

"It is the wine that leads me on,
the wild wine that sets the wisest man to sing at the top of his lungs,
and laugh like a fool – it drives the man to dancing...
it even tempts him to blurt out stories better never told." ~ Homer   (c. 750 BCE)  The Odyssey
