4 of Cups

This is a tricky card to figure sometimes.   A card of imagination/fantasy, disgust, weariness, vexation, novelty, unearthly gifts. 
Usually this design for the 4 of Cups has someone not paying any attention to what is going on around them. Its a card of depression, but not total sadness (much like the 5 of Cups) and like the 4 of Swords, it is a card of rest.
Reflection would be one way to class this card.
Relationships are tested greatly when this card pops up as cups are the suit of emotions.

I have to admit, in all the years of studying tarots, this card has been a pain in the ass for me. I've always seen it as a card of boredom and blindness.  Never too sure how to take this card.
