A wheelchair sits in the bottom right hand corner, with three pentacles as the visible wheels. In the top left corner, two more pentacles hang in the sky, overlapping each other. The wheelchair suggests sickness or disability, though not necessarily the poverty or dearth of resources often associated with this card. And those two floating pentacles suggest the hope and resources seen in the traditional stained glass window of a church, without the Christian associations.
Strangely, this card makes me think about the fact that we are often a lot more able than we think we are. I guess it's because I've been thinking about my business trip, and how I often feel at a disadvantage speaking in German. Although it was the first "foreign" language I learned, I've never mastered some of the basics. The fact that they have 16 different variants on the word "the" might give you some idea why!
And yet, realistically, I do speak it well. It's fair to say I'm fluent, simply that my German grammar is nowhere near as good as my English grammar. Then again, there are plenty of blogs out there that show even native speakers (in this case of English) don't all have great spelling and grammar skills. So, while I have decided to get a German tutor for a while, perhaps I should also cut myself some slack, and appreciate the abilities I do have!
I am grateful my workshop tomorrow is in English ;)
