The Straw That Tips

Zillich Tarot ~ 10 of Wands

I look at this woman and shudder, remembering the world being black, gray on a good day. Which led to thinking about writing reviews, and wondering why it brings out such meanness. And if taking reviews in this computer age into consideration is part of our life shouldn't we be leaving them? Thoughtful honest ones?

I look at this card and see hardworking authors who've gotten a one star because the book arrived in poor condition. What the hell are people thinking to misuse the power words in this way? Totally ineffective toward a solution to their problems, such powerful and depressing long term real world ramifications.

Honesty allows for color, it doesn't require mean-spiritedness. and we have no idea what 10 of Wands burden the receiver is carrying. Do we really need to be the straw that tips them over?

  1. I get irritated at the same thing. Terrible reviews because the reviewer doesn't like the subject or because the book came damaged. Ridiculous and unhelpful.

  2. Words, once spoken we cannot take them back.

    "Honesty allows for color, it doesn't require mean-spiritedness."

    I like this and agree.
