Be careful what you wish for

I have been thinking the last couple of days of those " haves and haves not."  This card reveals just such a thing.  Wishing for a thing and then getting it can become a harness.  To some, this innkeeper has it all and he thought so too when he wished for it.  Now he has long days, constant backbreaking work, and endless things he has to do.

Those five cups on the shelf and five doves in the cage give me pause for thought.  Those doves can fly at anytime since the cage door is open and those five cups above his head brings to mind the typical five of cups image, despair at loss and inability to see there is still more to life.  He could walk away at anytime, but then he would be a 'have not' so he stays with it.
Do we do that, stay with what we know and allow that security to limit our lives?

The other thought is up in the corner looks like a old Pangaea World Map, the way the Earth's land mass was millions/billions of years ago....

  1. I think this holds not only for the more stuff we have, but also the more social commitments. More isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it does stretch our time and energy to the max.

    1. I can relate to that. It is hard but it is worth it
      Seems you both open up some old wounds today, ladies :D

    2. Maybe we should consult an astrologer and find out what kind of sky patterns are occurring that has us evaluating what is in our lives.
