New and Improved

Daily Draw: PetraK Tarot ~ 5 of Wands

Constant resistance working against the push for activity.
Pressurized magma clamped down by the weight of the mountain. (DuQuette)

Where does it end? Should it end? When is running forward sheer foolishness, yet at what point do we allow ourselves to fall back to the luddite choir?
The internal common sense is gasping for air. Faced with thousands of NEW and IMPROVED choices each day, where can we go for a time out? When we go to work in our invisible flying machines should we still have a Walkman duct taped to the dash? There's your 5 of Wands...It's us pushing and dragging ourselves along trying to catch up with ourselves. Senseless isn't it?

"At Starbucks I like ordering a 'tall venti in a grande cup.' That is basically me asking for a small large in a medium cup." ~ Jarod Kintz 1982


  1. I too find the amount of choices sometimes overwhelming. I am not always aware of it but it's building up until for instance I am not able to choose which eggs to buy or something simple like that :D

  2. I had a cassette Walkman for years (way beyond the expiration date, lol). I don't mind new and improved, it's just that I don't want to get rid of my "old and reliable" until it doesn't work any more. :D

  3. Ah, but it's life isn't it? I've been wondering lately how I could learn to stop swimming against the current and go with the flow more.


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
