Flee Compassion

Daily Draw: Guardians of Wisdom ~ Queen of Wands

I read the local paper yesterday, the first time in many months. I seldom do this simply because I can't comprehend the brutality humans are capable of. We throw the word depression around so casually that to say it depresses me minimizes the impact.

I'm reminded by this card, I guess if there weren't people with compassion and empathy the world would be a much poorer place...but those are reactive words. How can someone like me ever be proactive, stop these stories before they ever become one? There are enormous government programs in place and they don't stop abuse and destruction. So. All compassion does for me today is make me want to go back to bed.

But you can see why I don't use reversals, the card drawn upright will be plus/negative/minus as needed.

"I had such scant offerings to give to the world, that the one thing that justified my existence at all was my agony." ~ Elizabeth Wurtzel 1967-
