Dodgem

Daily Draw: Jane Austen Tarot ~ Hermit

Mr. Bennett uses his library as both refuge and escape from an ill-matched wife and the responsibilities of five daughters.

I'm reminded by this card of the times I've done the same and been sorry afterward. Avoiding making decisions means someone else makes them for us, be they friend or stranger. Better that we steer our own ship.

"It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities." ~ Josiah Charles Stamp 1880-1941

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
