Daily Draw: Ship of Fools Tarot ~ 3 of Staves

First glance shows me a one-man-band with more instruments than he can handle. He needs to hire some assistants or find simpler instruments that are conducive to one-man-bandmanship. The harp, lute, and bagpipe require singular attention for mastery.

I see this card as a reminder to hone the skills I have. To scatter my attention between too many jobs or interests will result in "jack of all trades, master of none". I can also see it as a reminder to have some fun; life is short and then you die... In the Narrenschiff this image is on impatience of retribution: "If you rejoice in vulgar pipes, and harps and lutes distain, you ride in carts with fools."

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
