How to Read the Tarot
Begin by brewing a cup of tea,
a nervine, lemon balm or chamomile,
this is after all, your future.
A reading at the dark of the moon is best,
before the night creatures crawl
and bad humours fill the air.
Pick a circular deck, with a fairy-tale motif,
and no reversals.
Hold a question in your heart,
shuffle the cards and place them on the table.
Choose only two.
Like the ancient Israelites,
these are your seer stones, Urim and Thumimm,
black and white, yes or no.
Isn't that all you were asking?
It has been a lean hard year, but my husband David and I are still holding ground. A local Naples artist, Monsieur Paul Arsenault has created signs for the entrance to our beaches featuring a masked mermaid. I hope it works but Naples is littered with anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers. Sybylla, the veiled mermaid that lives in the retention pond behind our condo approves of the signs. I am lusting for one of these posters. But I am a good citizen, I mask in public, and I don't steal public signs. I wrote a letter to the editor suggesting that Arsenault make these available for sale and donate the proceeds to a local food bank or Covid relief fund. We can all benefit from a bit of whimsy this year.
