No matter what image is crafted for The Emperor, this is the flash image that my minds eye sees when he makes his appearance. The RWS deck was not the first deck that I worked with, but it is the one that I have spent the most time with.
Today I will obey the rules because I think the advice this emperor is trying to tell me is spot on. "for once Carolyn just do as I say"
If he would just say 'recommend' instead of 'say' I wouldn't get my hackles up.
Reminds me not to cut my nose off in spite of my face. Ha
Today I am grateful that I can still choose the direction of my days.
