I’ll Take One World, Please

The World from the Victorian Romantic Tarot

Served up with a lovely side of flowers.

The World card indicates pretty much what you see: Being on top of the world, having things come out in your favor, your plans coming to fruition, cause for celebration.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. — Helen Keller

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world. — Oscar Wilde

I wonder if Wilde really thought of that as a punishment. Some of the most compelling moments in my life have been watching the sun rise. It was one of the things I loved about my commute to my last job, cresting the hill in the road and seeing the sun about to rise above the hills, the different and stunning clouds in the morning, or the fog laying in the fields below. I always meant to pull over and get some pictures but never did, in the rush to get to work on time. Plus that stretch of road was two-lane, and there really wasn’t any place to pull over except into private driveways. Alas. Maybe some weekend on the bike.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. I know what you mean DD. I’ve wanted to take so many pictures of some of the things I see here everyday but just never seem to be able to make it happen.

    Thanks for the beautiful message to start the day/week. I’m back at work today and wouldn’t you know it?…this grindstone is exactly where I left it. 😦

    And to top it all off, we are having the same wonderful weather you had yesterday, “blah!”

    Have a good week too!


    1. Welcome back to the grind 😉 Hopefully the rain won’t last too long for you down there. This is going to be status quo here now until, oh, roughly May or June. With luck we’ll get some dry days in March and April, but the next few months are pretty much a guaranteed soggy mess. Oh well.


  2. I would like wallpaper of this if you please. What a great card. Oscar Wilds was so wonderfully dramatic. He’s someone I wish I knew. AND…Apollo is back…well, that’s what I call him. Look at those abs.



    1. Isn’t this lovely? This whole deck is another beauty, it’s by the same people who did the Baroque Bohemian Cats Deck. Yes, our heartthrob fallen angel does seem god-like, doesn’t he? 😉
