Like a Puppet on a String

Today I have asked myself the question "How did 9.11 influence my life?"

I have pulled the King of Swords from the Baroque Bohemian Cats' Tarot. 

I feel as the puppet on a string on this card in the face of terrorism (the puppet even looks like me, eerie!). I feel controlled, not only by the terrorists -not knowing if and when an attack comes (the sword)- but also by the safety-measures that are taken against them. Last Saturday it took me four hours to travel home by train from Amsterdam instead of two. One of the reasons that it took so long were the precaution-measures that were taken. I went from train to train, doing what the station-managers told us passengers to do so. Of course these measures are important and necessary, but they make me feel not in control.

Because the safety-measures are taken because of terrorism, this stern grey, manipulative cat signifies terrorism itself.

I do not want to give him that much power as I do now!
