The Long View

Daily Draw: Legend the Arthurian Tarot ~ Star

Contemplation, renewal, reset. The Firedrake reflects the turbulent and cruel time prior to Uther the Pendragon and the adventures and later ascension of Arthur.

I'm reminded by this card, myths and history both have star crossed times. Hazy math for age of England or Wales, 987 or 200,000,000? By what reckoning, time or government? How old is America, or North America? America is the new baby on the street only 241 vs 200,000,000? Give or take a year or two...

The point with the Star, is we can allow ourselves to be in total turmoil 24/7 by focusing on the instant. Time is a great leveler, reducing moments and people to a grain of sand.  Step back. Take the long view rather than the screen view, contemplate star time. Breathe. Relax.

    1. I've been reading a lot of American history this year. And over many years both British and Egyptian. Some leaders weren't/aren't worth even disposing of. As is true today...which is just a blip in time.

  2. I'm embarrassed to say I have no idea how old my country is...on the other hand neither does google. I suppose it depends on the terms of reference. This moment is a grain of sand but a good one :)

  3. Everything looks big and important under a microscope. :) In perspective, not so much...

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
