Daily Draw: Shakespearian Tarot ~ Hanged Man

Here is a child from a dysfunctional family. Unable to rise beyond the sins of the past, in the end it took him; heart, mind, soul. It is a timeless story, the sort that makes the paper every day; you can't even imagine the daily nightmare so many children live through and sometimes don't. Yet like the Hanged Man, there they are, unable to get away, not even knowing they could get away many times. After all, family is what you have when you don't have anything else, right?

I'm reminded by this card to keep my judgments to myself; I can have no idea where their behavior is coming from. There but for the grace of God go I.

"Stupid or smart, there wasn't much choice about what was going to happen to me. Growing up was like falling into a hole....It all looked bleak to me. No wonder people got crazy as they grew up." ~ Dorothy Allison 1949-
