Daily Draw: The Llewellyn Tarot, Eight of Wands

This week I have twice drawn the Seven of Pentacles (decide on your direction) and the Chariot (get moving). Today I have the ‘hurry card’. I get it.
Two things long overdue. My new blog site and my research career. The former a short cut to what I want to do and the latter the hoop jumping for academic respectability. Pathological perfectionism getting in the way. More so in the case of the latter.
Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft.
Anne Lamott, 1954-


  1. Congratulations on taking this first step. The next one will be much easier :)

  2. Heehee, the cards can be as blunt and to the point as Anne Lamott! :) Looking forward to stopping by here with my morning coffee.

  3. Ah thank you both for dropping by on my first day. Very kind :)
