Weapons Of Mass Deflection

Daily Draw: Fairy Tarot ~ Knight of Wands/Acorns

Snowbird: A person, usually retired, who flees the cold northern winters for warm southern climates. I've never known a Fairy to go to war and I believe they are vegetarians so what is the quiver of arrows for in the bleak landscape this snowbirder is passing through?

I'm reminded by this card of our own protective armor that we begin building from first hurt. I knew Rob's dad for 40 years, but the image I'm working hard to remember is from the last 6 months of his life. His face seemed totally different to me because his eyes no longer had that life-long guarded shielded look. How much pleasure and joy do we unknowlingly block out of our life with our carefully built personal weapons of mass deflection?

"For an impenetrable shield, stand inside yourself." ~ Henry David Thoreau 1718-1762
