I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Thank Yous

From the Brady Tarot, the World; from the African American Wisdom Knowledge Cards, 'Willie Mays:'

          Feathers (wands), horns (cups), roots (pentacles) and an arrow (swords) are all woven together in this picture. To find fulfillment and reach completion, we need to make use of all of our resources, not just our favorites. The cracked egg hints that what has been concluded also marks the start of a new journey. Willie Mays was a 'five-tool player' - he was a power hitter, had a high batting average, and could run, throw and field well. Though he was a legend, the quote on this card is his acknowledgment that Robinson paved the way by breaking through the color barrier in baseball. Robinson's tenacity in playing well while dealing with racism at its worst gave others like Mays hope that they too could play in the majors. At the culmination of any achievement, there will always be those who deserve our thanks and recognition.


  1. The World gives us gifts, all of us. Just depends on whether we use them.

    1. I couldn't agree with you more. I think we miss them at times because they aren't in a package that looks like what we expected.

  2. the world I live in puzzles me more every day. why is someone who disagrees with a queso recipe called a hater? I could go on for hours, I think the egg is cracked because we are irreparably cracked.
