The Line Backwards

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~ Ancestor of Protection

Physical? Mental? Spiritual? Until we are old enough to know better we act as we've been acted upon. My recent ancestors were agrarian, protestant, blue collar, life span of 50-90 years. None of my direct line have yet made it through higher education.

I remember my fraternal grandfather going on and on about 'straight democratic ticket', probably because of Roosevelt's efforts to pull the country out of the depression of the thirty's. I'm guessing all my recent ancestors did the same.

Sometimes that protection might result in square pegs, effort being made to not follow the family path. If asked I wonder how many of my cousins would be in the square corner? Me for one, but if we were clothes pinned to a line we'd lead straight back to what we came from. People don't really change.

  1. The older I get the less I resemble a square peg. :)

  2. Most really don't, like the tiger that can change her stripes. We are what we are. I have always been a bit of an odd duck.

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
