Nebulous Nonentity

Daily Draw: Mystic Meg Tarot ~ Devil

Too stylized to be scary? The devil we like to blame is often incredibly attractive. I see a feral cat that needs to be neutered and would like to be socialized enough to get 3 squares a day. I see a fellow that thinks with his little head rather than the big head. I see two figures linked by anything but love.

I wonder when the idea was planted "the devil made me do it"?
Once again off-loading our sampled temptations onto someone else's back. The devil, like a hypnotist, can't make us do anything we don't want to do. Even eating too many Whoppers Robin Eggs...that is a temptation I've never been able to overcome. But it's me, all me, no nebulous nonentity at which I can throw shoes and blame.

"Truth cannot be defined or tested by agreement with 'the world'; for not only do truths differ for different worlds but the nature of agreement between a world apart from it is notoriously nebulous." ~ Nelson Goodman 1906-1998

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
