Emotional

Daily Draw: Tarocco Piemontese ~ King of Cups

"I am the active spirit of this suit, having gained the mastery and use of emotional energies" Signe Echols

How many ways have I epitomized this King lately?
Kitten Kiwi dies of seizures. Lost it
Last uncle dies who was always a favorite person. Keeping it cool, at least until the military service Friday. Up in the air.
Had opportunities to help neighbors, provided cheerfully with gratitude for good people on both sides of us. Win
MIL was in the hospital, no one told us, we didn't butt in when we were told. Win

I'm reminded by this card humans are emotional creatures. Containing and directing that force is an everyday task. Always has been always will be.

"Emotion turning back on itself, and not leading on to thought or action, is the element of madness." ~ John Sterling

  1. I am not sure we can ever gain mastery. Sometimes I feel like an eternal student
    but the older we get, the more we learn about the variety and depths of our emotions

  2. God, so sorry about the losses of your uncle and little Kiwi. Glad you still have the memories of the uncle, and glad that Kiwi at least got to spend some time loved in a home. (((S)))

  3. Good thoughts for you my friend. Even kings, especially those kings of cups get emotional. When we love and they leave, there is a hurt.

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
