Well

Daily Draw: Green Witch Tarot ~ Death/Lord of Shadows

While my mind composed great words of keeping the life free of stagnation and brimming with fresh growth...I got sidetracked by wondering if ancient wells generally had the equivalent of a thatched roof.

I'm reminded by this card I have no fear of being dead, I will simply be gone. That is perfect for my needs. It is the dying that worries me. so many bad ways to go. Never mind, I'm here today and our own well is pumping along. As is life. Death can wait.

  1. It feels like he is waiting in this card, just there where we can't see him but we do know he is there. This knowledge makes us eager to life and to make the most out of life. So that way he is more about teaching us how to live than about how to die.

  2. I appreciate Prachett's version of Death. :)

    Death: I THINK PERHAPS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. PEOPLE’S WHOLE LIVES DO PASS IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES BEFORE THEY DIE. THE PROCESS IS CALLED ‘LIVING’.

    “YOU FEAR TO DIE?
    "It's not that I don't want... I mean, I've always...it's just that life is a habit that's hard to break...”
    ― Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

    “DON'T THINK OF IT AS DYING, said Death. JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.”
    ― Terry Pratchett, Good Omens

    1. I've used him as quote lines a number of times, but have never been able to make it through one of his books. My square peg mind?

  3. I've been down the thatched well route - first google fail in a long time...

    1. covered water well and ancient water well brought more
      Not the numbers I expected though. Some have gorgeous circular steps going down. We have four wells on our property, all non-functioning. Thank you asshat who sold the place to us.

  4. I have had a glimpse of Death no sense worrying. It's the how of it that concerns me as well. A time in and a time out.
