'Ware, 'Ware

Daily Draw: Animals Divine Tarot ~ 7 of Swords

Sometimes we sneak up on ourselves, all the while shouting it isn't fair it isn't fair. We protest so loudly you'd think we'd hear ourselves coming and get some preparation in order.

My feet touch the floor when I walk and you'd think that would be enough, but the legs attached to those feet are short. So all the years I was a secretary and then customer service director at a mall I wore high heels. Long story short I earned myself a nice bursitis in my left ankle. Holy crapola that hurts.

I learned my lesson and went to flat shoes (here comes stubby, they shout) but sometimes that bursitis comes back. I've just spent two days getting around the house on my hands and knees.  I admire how sharp women look in heels and think  "7 of Swords 7 of Swords, 'Ware the 7 of Swords,.. it is thyself".

  1. My recent pain has me chanting two quotes from Pema Chodron:
    "Pain without loving-kindness is just warfare."
    "Pain is not punishment, pleasure is not reward."
    (Pain in this case meaning just the inevitable consequence of being human.)
    Hope you are bipedal soon. ((S))

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
