Snakes and Ladders

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:10 pm by Aleksan

A shake of the dice and count the squares – up a ladder, nearly there! Shake the dice, count the squares, fear in my thumping heart….no! Not fair! I’ve landed on the head of a sinister snake – down I go to the bottom of the board and start all over again!

Snakes and Ladders on my grandparents Victorian Board was, in retrospect, a great training for vicissitudes of Life. The Gods play with us, as Utred says in the Last Kingdom – Destiny is All!
