bewildered

I don't get this World depiction and for that matter I don't get our World in action.

At the base of the card the creator of the deck has given us Aere perennius.  I had to look it up.  It comes from a poem penned by Horace as "Exegi monumentum aere perennius" translated as 'I have made a monument more lasting than bronze.'  Horace attributed this to his poetry that would outlast him and most anything else.

Whatever happens in the World, the World will outlast us.  Eons have passed and things constantly change with the lovely planet Earth.  I am but a footprint that will disappear with the rotation of time.  Does that forgive inaction?  Is there something that I can do that will make a significant contribution?  Ethereal questions that whisper in my mind. 







The Tarot of Durer

  1. Probably because of the cards I drew today, it makes me wonder what legacy I might leave behind, even if it is only kindness or unkindness.

  2. Durer didn't actually do a deck,to make decks based on artists body of work, someone had to pull images that 'sort of fit'. It has only been in the 20th century that decks began to shift away from a christan/catholic world view. I see the fire, I see the flood, so this body is waiting for the great rapture?

  3. My legacy? I don't spend much time thinking about it. I am more of a day by day person I guess
