Tarot of Metamorphosis shows its Sci-Fi side...
I don't see much of the apprentice in this card, though I guess the aspect of working hard could be seen in having to follow so many different perspectives at once. I notice, though, that his "face" is blank - information overload?
This cyborg fellow with his old-fashioned computer monitor head and strange long-limbed body also makes me think of how people are attached to machines. Watching an episode of the first season of Two and a Half Men two nights ago, Alan and Judith were trying to organise their calendars - PDA's which in this day and age would be half the size with a hundred times the functionality. We get so used to seeing people everywhere gazing at their smartphones, it seems bizarre to think back to the early '80's when the Filofax was the accessory of the year!
Today is Big Boy's fourth birthday, and he is definitely of the generation that uses technology as naturally as breathing. He loves "his" iPad, and the software we have on it just for him. Makes me wonder in what other ways his experience will be different to mine, growing up in this far more technological era. Still, we read him books often enough that they won't seem a foreign territory to him, even if in the future he does read them on a Kindle (or on his iPad) rather than on paper.
I am grateful for four years of learning and growing with my beautiful son.
