Civilization

Daily Draw: Runic Tarot ~ Os/Ansuz

What makes a civilization? Writing systems, architecture, sacred kingship.

I'm reminded by this card, to wonder what makes them go? Weather changes for one, which drive ancient civilizations ability to feed the population. All the civilized markers in the world can't be maintained on an empty stomach.

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
~T.S. Eliot, The Rock, 1934

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
