I am Fileg, also known as "Daughter of Printers, Lives with Artists."
I thought I might get my feet wet in the journaling community by introducing the concept of "Found Tarot."
I have been reading Tarot most of my life, and I have been surrounded by people who have designed and created some beautiful decks, including my Heart-Sisters Chris Smith and Robin Wood, my last Lost Boy Lee Moyer, the beautiful and talented Annaliese Moyer who is working on a photodeck idea with me, and my husband Jim, who has designed several overly-specific decks for me.
For several years, Chris and I have been collecting pictures that have come to us through chance, and trying to organize them, like found verse, into a usable whole. Since we are not systematic about it, it is still far from finished. But the idea persists, as does the recognition when an image hits the myth center of the brain. I thought I would share them with you.
It is original art done by my very much missed friend, Tim Standish, as a magazine illustration. It's myth is Beauty and The Beast. How do you perceive, and how you allow yourself to be perceived? Are you your image? Who do you pretend to be? Do you don that guise to hide or to aspire? Will someone be perceptive enough to offer you a kiss and a rose?
