Spoons and Screwdrivers

Daily Draw: Spirit Keeper's Tarot ~ Shining Quarry/Knight of Coins

The Shining Quarry is invoked to increase material resources and assets, and to cultivate fruitful abundance.

If we purchase something that doesn't work out to be what we need, did we waste resources or increase knowledge?
If something we own has been outmoded by technology, have we lost something or gained something?

My biggest thorn in the side of good stewardship of resources? Planned obsolescence. Towns had appliance repair shops, villages had a fix-it person, we could get our blender or tv or bench grinder fixed good as new. We could say the cost of labor outgrew the cost of replacements. Or is it our push for cheaper stuff that got us hoist on our own petard? There is probably no going back now unless the world goes dark, at which time all those tools and appliances will be replaced with spoons and screwdrivers.

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
