4 of Swords : The Sun : High Priestess
The first day of half-term break from school. Yay! I spent the day reading The Narrow Road to the Deep North and couldn't put it down. I have about a quarter of the book left. It is so well written and so compelling a read (although harrowing in places). It made me smile somewhat when I saw The Sun at the centre of the spread for the day. Yes - it signals happiness and contentment (which is great) - but the image also contains a sun burst so reminiscent of the Japanese flag (and my book is all about the POWs captured by the Japanese who are working on the 'Death Railway').
This time out (4 of Swords) is exactly what I need at the moment - a chance to recharge the batteries after a stressful month since school started back in September...and at the end of my three-card draw is the High Priestess who is there to remind me that wisdom and knowledge often come from quiet reflection...
