Our Little world

Tarot of the Origins ~ World

Megalithic circles. Standing stones. Neolithic henges. Halls, temples, shrines, dolmens, barrows, pyramids, forts, amphitheaters. In perusing the Wiki list, tombs are the most common ancient structures remaining.

Seeing the mass burials going on around the world (what did people expect would happen?) I wonder what the guilty still living will erect. Something expensive no doubt. Designed by committee probably. The dead won't care.

The World goes on, ice age, nuclear winter, plagues, and wars. Only a human thinks in terms of being remembered. We lost another family member this week. Rob's mom gave her up at birth, we only met her once. I grieve anyway, and wish she could be interred in our family plot. Remembered. In our Little world.

  1. A local poker group is still meeting on the sly in different locations (sending info on Facebook). R's tried to tell them this is a horrible (and now illegal) idea. They say 'we're grownups and can make our own decisions.' At our hospital, a baby daddy showed up in the delivery room with his baby mama when she went into labor. After he had been there, they found out he had tested positive for the virus (which he knew before he came). I wish they would have a special jail for these idjits.
    Rob's sister may not be in the plot, but she is carried in the heart.

    1. the preachers pressing people to go to church...they should be in that group lockup too. And the people deliberately coughing and licking the food in the groceries.

    2. Here all churches are closed and have been for about 3 weeks. I saw a lovely item on the news though. A priest in the Philipines in an empty church. He was giving his Easter message and each pew had just a photograph of the person that normally would be sitting in that pew but were sheltering at home.

  2. Crazy times. Sorrowful of a missed relationship.
    The aches we carry.

    1. I don't think there are any storybook perfect families. Couldn't be with flawed humanity.

  3. So many people refusing to take this seriously when it affects their own conveniences. It's hornswoggling, is what it is. How stupid, how selfish, how blind and deaf ... wow. However I'm unlike my son, who thinks the human race should be wiped out because so many of us aren't too smart or decent. I believe most of us ARE smart and decent -- at least, most people I've known. -Kate

  4. Holy shit.
    If there are any close to us, we haven't heard it yet.

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
