Cope And Excel

 Animism Tarot ~ 2 of Swords

Cheung  presents our panther as blind, yet able to use its other senses to not only cope but excel. Life is nothing but choices, day in day out, big 'uns and little 'uns. I'm pretty proud of how I'm dealing with failing sight, not so much how I'm not coping with failed family relationships and a nation divided. 

Perhaps it is because I can't do anything at all about the last two that makes me feel so ineffective and useless. I'm thinking I need to take tea with Buddha, and practice some more mindfulness of what is, and detachment from what isn't. 2 of Swords...gotta deal with it.

  1. Those nicks and cuts throughout our days. As we get older the longer it takes us to heal.

  2. Having just spent time with my cousins who look through Avery different lens to view life, it's finally dawning on me that you can't have a logical discussion with others when the subject is based on emotions and personal experiences. Learning never seems to stop.

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
