Sharpen Or Soften

Daily Draw: Pearls of Wisdom Tarot ~ 3 of Wands

Rather than back to the world facing the sea of change, this figure has back to sea and sailing ships, and appears to be cogitating on what comes next and how the vines of life interwrap into patterns.

I'm reminded by this image of my own patterns. Yes I have them even though I like to think I'm so out of the box to be patternless. Our nature leads us to those patterns, and I'm not sure it is possible to change, only sharpen or soften.

"Our nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome, seldom extinguished." ~ Sir Francis Bacon 1561-1626


  1. I have found that when I'm stressed, I go back to those patterns that are so familiar. I have to make an effort to do "different" rather than "comfortable."

  2. Going back to patterns can sometimes be a positive thing. And even wanting to be patternless can become a pattern :)


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
