Point of View

Daily Draw: Art of Life Tarot ~ 9 of Swords

Renaissance man. da Vinci started far more projects than he finished. Perhaps as few as fifteen completed paintings exist. Was he a procrastinator? A perfectionist? A dabbler? A one shot wonder?
If we stick him in the guise of the 9 of Swords, he was pretty useless, because he didn't finish much.

I'm reminded by this card he was a genius. He wasn't 'just a painter', but a sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Perhaps that is the glory and despair. So many thoughts, so little time. By leaving his starting point journals and projects, as seeds, he enabled generations upon generations the starting point of techniques and ideas that have changed our very way of thinking.

Pretty good for a 9 of Swords man.

  2. It is hard to image all that swirled in his head; so many extra areas of active brain.

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
