Enjah's Global Tarot
Enjah mounted an exhibit of her global tarot cards - she has so far finished the major arcana and is in the process of finishing the rest. Her cards are interpreted in an earthy, gorgeously-colored style that is solid and familiar, yet surprising and intuitive. Each card contains words of wisdom - click a card, and a statement randomly drawn from several apt statements is the card's response. The opening was on Saturday, and there were lots of people there - I wish I'd got a photo. I'll add one later of the exhibit.
At the opening people were talking about metaphysical things, of course. I said something about how it is better to think there is something more, since if you are wrong and there isn't, you are dead by the time it matters anyway. Well, something like that. The trouble is what I say is not exactly what I think, which prompted Sel to say, "I understand what you mean but I'm not sure I agree." - when the whole problem to me is that I can't say what I mean, not that someone else can't understand what I am saying. Even I don't agree with what I say most of the time - I am crap at moving my thoughts into the realm of words. Words in my hands are very blunt and inexpressive - I feel like an untutored child banging on a piano. I'm clumsy - words come out in great ringing tones of equal weight when there should be nuances and subtleties to match my thoughts. Oh well, I don't think in words, so I suppose it's like translating something into a language I'm not fluent in.
