April 9, 2014

Today's tarot card is The Fool.
A young man stands in a hoop, bracing himself as he prepares to roll along. He doesn't realize he's on the edge of a steep drop.
That's him, in the bottom card.

The fool is the first card in the Major Arcana, and represents the neophyte as s/he starts out on the journey of life. The card is about new beginnings, adventure, naiveté, and being easily distracted. The young man is so excited about the ride in the hoop, he doesn't see the danger right at his feet.
It's a reminder to pay attention to what's going on right under your (my?) nose.

Today's art image is of a liturgical comb depicting scenes from King Henry II and Thomas a' Becket.
The first side shows Thomas being named Archbishop of Canterbury. The other side, Thomas' martyrdom.

Today I'm grateful for:
1. The nice man who let me use his restroom
2. Beautiful weather
3. The extra boost of energy I've had the last few days.
