Gilded Tarot SG - 10 of Wands

I originally saw the card differently from what is said in the book. Here is what I see:

the man is carrying a heavy burden. he is straining, but he doesn't look upset. he seems to have taken on the burden by choice. He may not realize how much the burden has been building up. He probably took on the wands one at a time, not realizing how heavy the load would get. But he made a commitment, and he won't back down now. The sun is setting, and he is not home yet, but he still trudges along. There are stags looking on in the distance. Are these the same stags from the 2 of wands? Is this the result of the path he chose in that card?

Now according to the book, it is sunrise, not sunset. He has been carrying the burden all night. There is a full moon and dawn is on the horizon. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

After reading this, I began to think that maybe the book is right for the upright position - there is light at the end of the tunnel, the dawn is about to break. but maybe for the reversed intrepertation, maybe the day is turning into night with no end of the burden in sight.

What does anyone else think?
