Savoring Abstinence

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Origins ~ Hermit

Research Solitude Abstinence. Ouch, abstinence isn't a word that comes to mind in this nation of plenty. Or in my life.

I'm reminded by this skull, and early man in the socket, saying here ye will also be, to give a thought to what I could cut back on, in order to savor it all the more.


  1. Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder

    1. I was thinking I should abstain from my peanut M&M's.
      Not sure I could man-up and do it.

  2. I think there is a line between enjoying something and using that something to change the way we feel.

  3. What a bizzare Hermit card; lived alone and they only found the bones.
    When I quit smoking years ago M&M's was my substitute for the cigarettes. I ate way too many, and now not so much. It is a sure bet when I by a bag it is a signal I need a fix for my stress.

  4. this whole deck is bizarre in many ways but I love using it, cuts down on bs. I went with gum when I quit, I must have drove everyone around me snapping snapping snapping.


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
