What I see here is a Native American riding a proud steed, a rough, wooden club held in one hand. He wears an amazing, intricate cape, as well as red headgear with a red-tipped feather. Five more wooden clubs hand in the air, as though suspended by the sharp lines of the background that jags betweeen pale blue, tan and indigo.
This card makes me wonder what image the Native Americans had of success when they started fighting the invaders to their lands. They have achieved a lot more in the way of recognition and independence in the last couple of decades, but I wonder whether their forefathers would appreciate that, or simply see what has been lost.
We don't always achieve what we set out to. Still, it is valuable to celebrate our victories, no matter how small nor how different from our original intentions.
Big Boy is somewhat better, though he still has spikes in his temperature and the occasional coughing fit. Sleeping much better, though, and that is a victory I'm glad to celebrate. And I have been doing quite well on my new intention to do at least a card a day for the Celtic Lenormand. Of course, I'd love to have the time to do 5 or 10 each day, and some additional research. Still, I'll count my blessings and celebrate what I do manage :)
I am grateful for more sleep and more energy to devote to the projects I value.
