Book covers

Something is amiss in this portrayal of the Three of Pentacles.  The Marco Polo Tarot has an Asian based theme, and these three don't appear to be of Asian decent. Are they master craftsmen, paid labor, or prison labor?

I best be aware today because all may not be what it seems.  Makes me think about the adage - don't judge a book by it's cover.  We really should not make assumptions of people.  The clothes that are worn, the work that they do and the places where we find or meet them.  But we do.  Most all go by first impressions, though to do so limits us of real discovery. 
So today if something just doesn't feel 'right'  I will give it some extra attention.  Practical observation with no presentiment hopefully will give me insight into a possible difficult situation.



Thank goodness for craftsmen and women, who build and develop so many useful tools that make my life easier.

  1. Maybe they are part of Marco Polo's crew or those who built his ship before the journey?

  2. Carolyn's profiling :) Rob's shoulder pings at airports, so he always gets a good going over. I think it is probably shrapnel from 'Nam.

    Anyway, great take on a gorgeous card.

    1. You are right they would definitely give him some serious extra attention. I wonder if I will ping if I go through a metal detector with those screws in my neck?

  3. Great observation. I go with Bev's idea. Did you watch The TV Series "Marco Polo" from Netflix. M and I really enjoyed it

    1. I never did. Maybe this winter I will order it up and watch it on those cold winter days, with my hot chocolate of course.
