This Page of Discs most assuredly is not like the Page of Pentacles -- it's not like the Princess of Discs from Thoth, either, the 'Malkuths of Malkuths,' as DuQuette calls her. Cilla Conway suggests in the companion book that this Page of Discs is holding a mirror with an ornate back, but instead of looking into she is angling it toward the window. Conway calls her 'the impartial observer', and says she is a 'thoughtful, quiet person who reveals themselves as unexpectedly earthy, witty and perceptive.' She's certainly not like any Page of Pentacles or Princess of Discs in my experience. This is sort of a new character for me. I'm trying to get my head around who she is.
I can relate to the 'impartial observer' part. Yesterday, some stuff went down at work. I need to stay out of it, keep my thoughts to myself. The times, they are a-changin', and some folk don't like it. Fortunately I am not directly involved, and I'd like to keep it that way, as much as I can.
What do the Devas of Creation have to add? Oh wow, another amazingly synchronous draw.
There's something about the outline of the deva that reminds me of the famous image of Scarlett O'Hara from 'Gone with the Wind'. She, too, in a way, stands steadfast while the world falls apart around her.

Now, I'm not saying my world is falling apart (crosses fingers), but things are a bit uncomfortable right now at work and I could easily find myself in the middle of it -- a place I don't want to be! So I can certainly see how being the 'impartial observer' will stand me well today. Point taken!
