Turncoat

Daily Draw: Spiral Tarot ~ 7 of Swords

Daring, undercover, impulsive, detective style actions.
To view this character as just 'sneaky' limits us from grasping both sides of the story.

Are traitors also heros? Of course, depending on which side has them. Turncoats, or just someone coming to their senses? Who decides who our 'enemy' is? Those with a hand glued to the cookie jar.  Even the worst of the worst in my personal experience, traitor to me, certainly aren't seen as traitors to the someone else. Dizzy-making thoughts, good to chew over in the course of my day.

Is Mt. Rushmore a travesty or America's greatest monument? Is it art or is it all ego? Do a few chips of rock matter to the mountain? I'd consider those behind the creation to be traitors to ecology and nature. Do those hordes who stop to view it and buy a bucket of China made souvenirs from the gift shop ever think "why? what were they thinking?".
