Waspish Page

Hmm, maybe there's also a bit of the horror genre in this deck.  Certainly, today's card from the Tarot of Metamorphosis gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Like a weird cross between Mary Poppins and some horror movie (can't think of the name, I don't tend to watch them, but I'm sure there was one like this), this Page of Swords takes flight, dissolving into his constituent wasp parts.  There is certainly a sting in the tail of this Page, and I can imagine his comments being sharp - lots of small, pointed quips that hurt. 

On the up-side, I guess he doesn't see truth as a single thing, being open to numerous perspectives.  Also, he allows his ideas to raise him up, taking flight on a whim and a dream.

Today it's back to work for me, both seeing clients and reading for my dissertation.  However, this Page's umbrella makes me think of a novel that should arrive later today that I'd love to get stuck into.  Recommended by Barbara Moore last summer, it looks fun - Soulless: The Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger.  Definitely one I could get transported by :)

I am grateful for the wealth of ideas and books in the world.


  1. OMG that image is PERFECT for the first day back to work after the hols! Hope it went well and that you get to enjoy your novel :)

  2. Hi Lisa,

    Well, the novel is sitting on the table tempting me, but I haven't had a chance to start it :( Still, it's all about choices, as I have read a few blogs and some posts on FaceBook ;) Hope you're enjoying being home, too!
