Cat's Eye View

 Ananda Tarot ~ Hanged Man/Reverse

I generally see the Hanged image as being locked in, by circumstances, indecision, roadblocks, fear or anger keeping me from breaking lose and going forward; sometimes pure unadulterated stubbornness, often simply blinders. 

I'm reading a kind of crazy book, The Dalai Lama's Cat, it is a little heavy handed on 'the moral of the story'...but by fact checking and one thing leading to another I've learned a some interesting things about Dalai Lama and his home town. He has a number of fine watches for instance, the one he wears the most is a Rolex Day/Date. Why not? A watch is a watch is a watch, and why not beauty and fine workmanship. He also likes working with tools and fixing things. Does he actually have a cat? I don't think so but has often been photographed in the company of animals.

The point being, I think, by taking a completely different cat's eye view of a revered personage, I've unstuck something else, and been able to move forward. I seldom understand my method to the madness, but it works for me.
