Compatriots

Daily Draw: Paulina Tarot ~ 5 of Wands

This card is often shown as strife, fighting, discord...but this deck has shown a different view. By the faces this isn't a pleasant gathering, but there are only four imps, not five. The fifth Wand stands in the center, the remaining imps and wands form a tableau around it.

I'm reminded by this card of a women's group I used to lead. There were about 40 members of which only one was a royal PITA. I stood it for two years, then finally removed her from the membership. But you know what? She had been with us long enough that her absence was felt by me at least. We all make our impressions on those around us, I hope my presence here on earth is notable enough that my absence will be noticed when I'm gone; not because of negative impact but positive. Alone we are a cypher, our lives only have impact by leaving our impression on others.

"If you think you are too small to have impact try going to bed with a mosquito in the room." ~ Anita Roddick 1942-2007
