I thought this was a photograph the first time I looked at it.

It captures so many perfect moments; the drop that has fallen in the water, has merged with the water, and has created ripples. The gleaming drop in the center, about to fall. The present moment, in which nothing is happening. And we wait.

As I look further into the card, I see that the water is perfectly still, except for the drop, and I see reflections of trees on the surface of the water, and the silouette of one head--or is it two?--as well.

The traditional RWS 8 of Cups is about the sadness of leaving things behind. I don't sense a trace of sadness in this card.
