Daily Draw: Tarot of the Cat People ~ King of Cups

Karen Kuykendall, the deck author, indicated this King holds the cup of knowledge and that it can represent among others, a lawyer. I know a lot of funny lawyer jokes, and in fact worked for a group of 11 attorneys for nearly a year. One of the shortest jobs I ever had, just couldn't stick it out. That said, they are just people, with an education and a shingle to hang out. A thought for the day though, how many really smart, educated people do you know that also have common sense? We had a highly educated couple living next to us for many years; we hoped they'd never move because they provided weekly entertainment in just how little common sense they had. That isn't a put down, just a fact based on long observation.

I would always recommend jumping at any opportunity to further higher education, but if I had to choose between book smarts and street smarts I'd take the street smarts any day.

"Common sense is genius dressed in it's working clothes". ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882
