Nap w/Ghost

Daily Draw: Shakespeare Tarot ~ 4 of Swords

Hamlet,  the ghost of Hamlet's father

Upon seeing his father's ghost, who claimed to be held in purgatory, Hamlet was at cross purposes. The government, who ran the church, had decreed there was no hell. Purgatory was now a figment the population was to put out of mind. Believe his eyes, believe his father,  or believe the church?

And once again the play, and Shakespeare, prove his words are ageless, as nothing ever changes. Anything we see as change will fit the bag we choose to put it in. Where do we put the concept that Shakespeare didn't even write the play? No wonder folk need a good 4 of Swords nap.
