Forgot To Remember

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Animal Lords ~ 7 of Cups

A newly created mythical creature astride an ancient mythical creature. Sort of like our memories sometimes...wishcraft to a high degree.

I'm reminded by this card of how tricky human memory can be. Everything we see, do, think, is lodged in our brain somewhere, so much that occasionally it is hard to remember what we ate for breakfast. But what purpose is gained by disremembering an event and recreating it to suit our ego's wishes? We've all been there when someone is telling a baldfaced lie. I'm betting we've all done it ourselves. We aren't kidding anyone. Why rebuild the past, painful as it might be? Why not move forward and create with purpose and intent, exciting and interesting memories of mythical proportions founded in truth? When presented with the opportunity to do so, seize the day and make a memory worth telling.

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened ~ T.S. Eliot 1888-1965
