Snark

Daily Draw: Etruscan Tarot ~ 7 of Swords

"woman hides face and knife" Minetti

"I pass by complicated quilts at shows, they are made by people who have too much time on their hands."
This wasn't directed at me, but an opinion on a quilt forum thread.
But I did indeed take it personally. Rude, insensitive, unthinking? Yes and no.

I'm reminded by this hidden knife and its carrier, we hear and say stuff like this all the time. Sometimes hidden behind snarky intent, sometimes totally unintentional and undirected. I've been a lot more thoughtful about my interactions this week, I'd never want to denigrate someone else's passions and work. If challenged, can't you take a joke, makes it intentional. I do not want to be the figure on this card.
