Life Noose

Daily Draw: Santa Fe Tarot ~ 4 of Cups/Water

A spotted water creature is trapped by a water lizard.

I'm reminded by this card, once in the early 90's I went more than a year without touching needle and thread. Life had given us so many difficulties on so many fronts I was like the spotted water creature, trapped and overwhelmed. That was the first time I worked out a good suicide plan.

As always, this too passed and when I picked up needle and thread again I found my dry creative well had refilled. The water lizard is still there, I don't doubt, but it no longer presents a life noose. 4 of water in a nutshell...


  1. I would be curious to know how many people by age 50 have at least considered suicide as an option. Thankfully most find a ray of light in the darkness.

  2. The Reptilian Brain, Fight or Flight. We are creatures of our evolution. Glad you hung around.


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
