Why Bother?

Daily Draw: Native American Tarot ~ 5 of Swords

Reappearing from the Judgment card is the Buffalo, this time in the latter stages of emaciation, and is much more frightening than the Tower in this deck. Here he carries the world on his back in the middle of some cataclysmic event.

I'm reminded of our retirement accounts riding on the back of a broken world economy. It is a little futile to look down our noses at those of our generation who haven't saved a dime toward their old age when what we've worked so hard to save is so diminished. Why bother comes to mind. But then I'm on the prod today...tomorrow's card will bring a new mindset.

"So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that we have no appropriate sword other than laughter." ~ Gordon W. Allport 1897-1967
