After posting two posts this morning, I turned on my T.V. just in time to see cars coming in a gate – with grim rumor! Was Queen Elizabeth – dead? Then we are told the flag will be lowered – if she is dead! An hour later – the flag is lowered! I went into a trance – in order to feel – what is now gone. I said;
“The last Christian – has left the planet! She – endured! Now – she is gone!”
I wanted to take my first thought – back! How – severe! Then I considered how many times I felt like The Last Christian Standing – after being betrayed by all members of my family – and there go my last friend! I will – persevere! I am….not alone! We have all taken a turn on the cross – on the hill.
I got to know the Queen of England when I became friends with an English family who left that Blessed Isle. But – she was always with them – in America. She was that lone great oak – on the crag! I too learned to use her as a litmus test – an acid test. No matter how crazy the world got – along with her family…..She persevered
“If she can do it – so can we!”
My granddaughter will not see the great oak tree, or, even believe it existed! How like a lighthouse The Queen – was! I have so much to say, but, will say it on the day the Great Flag is draped on her casket.
For now, allow me to redesign the Tarot card – The Star. I always thought it was too vague and wishy-washy….a woman’s card for sure! There will be the ruin of a lighthouse. If you look closely you will see the image of Elizabeth in the heap of stone. Above the lighthouse – is a star!
Do you see? Do you get my drift?
The new card will be titled…
“to persist in what one has undertaken, to pursue steadily a design or course,” late 14c., perseveren, from Old French perseverer “continue, persevere, endure” and directly from Latin perseverare “continue steadfastly, persist,” from persevereus “very strict, earnest,” from per “very” (see per) + severus “serious, grave, strict, austere,” which is probably from PIE root *segh- “to have, hold,” on the notion of “steadfastness, toughness.” Related: Persevered; persevering.
