I need to do some work. Writing is fun, even when it isn’t. It is consuming, even after I’ve been consumed.
I didn’t sleep much last night. My mind was racing, thinking about things – nothing in particular – everything, the work I’m supposed to be doing, the writing I’m not doing, the sparrow outside my window right now, the writing I am doing, correspondence, the correspondence I’m not doing. I need to meet with a bloke about some potential work, and I haven’t even made an appointment. The sparrow outside my window again, and the golden tabby who stood at my window yesterday, who probably would have liked to “play” with that sparrow.
Stagnation while moving, moving while stagnant.
Yet, today’s card is:
The Knight of Disks. A dull, heavy, preoccupied fellow, laborious and patient with a weak intellectual grasp of most things. He is successful through instinct, rather than initiative.
How does that relate to me? I guess I am preoccupied and instinctive. I need some help, perhaps a second draw:
3 of Disks. Works.
Attainment through effort. This card often marks the attainment of goals, or collaboration in achieving them.
The two together could mean that there is some sort of stagnation or patience required in achieving those goals, perhaps a reminder that I need to send that email to set up that meeting. It would be a collaboration. We started work on something about 15 years ago, then he moved away, then I moved away, and he moved back.
The sparrow just flew away.
