To prove she has been "working", here are some pictures she took and a poem she wrote at a Writing the Tarot workshop led by Jenny Alexander (who blogs in the House of Dreams, if you want to know more).
|Katherine's random major arcana card - "The World"|
I am the World.
I am the centre from which all things spring:
The moon and the stars,
The air and the sea,
The growing green,
And the corn that feeds man.
I am the flaming torch and the burning fire,
I am the sword and the cauldron.
I am desire.
It was surprisingly hard work...
|The boys - Jonny Zucker and Joe Friedman|
|The girls - Rosemary Hayes, Lynne Benton, Jenny Alexander, Jackie Marchant|
|The thinkers - Miriam Halahmy, Celia Rees, and... can you identify the sleeper?|
We all started with "The Fool", because this card means new beginnings. In two of these packs he is foolishly/innocently stepping off a cliff as he begins his journey. Fortunately, in Katherine's pack (centre) he is just setting out up a tempting sunny path that divides ahead and might lead to the cliff, having ignored a baby with its hand in the fire and its screaming mother. I am not in The Fool cards (because I am no fool, obviously!), but if you look closely at a tarot pack, you might well find unicorns in some of the other cards.
