I make a single post here nearly every day.

The messages come to me in my daily Tarot reading.

The messages are not always expressed with words so I find a piece of art that I feel conveys the essence of it.

I feel Tarot isn't about giving us answers, but more like a guide that helps us focus and find our way.

People open up to each other about creative pursuits because they want to share ideas, not opinions.  Judgement is not a contribution. Interest is.
