Make Haste

Daily Draw: Spiral Tarot ~ 8 of Wands

What an evocative image, it shows so clearly what Waite's original doesn't, speed. I did a search of my blog for other 8 of Wands images and they run the gamut, Waite's conception of the wands can be seen in the December 3, 2007 post about half way down the linked page.

I'm reminded by that group of images that we each have a different idea of speed or hurry. I'm a darter when something needs doing. I often run smack into the back of someone who is moseying along. I'm glad I finally accepted that as long as the job is getting done it isn't my concern how quickly someone is doing it.

"If you must be in a hurry, then let it be according to the old adage, and hasten slowly." Saint Vincent de Paul 1580-1660
