As with so many cards in this deck, there are some interesting twists here. I love his red-and-white checked tunic, and larger checked saddle, as well as the warm orange of his horse, all symbolising the element of fire! Okay, so that colour probably isn't called orange on a horse, but I don't know much about horses :)
On the other hand, I was surprised to see him looking backwards, as to my mind this guy is all about forward momentum. He may not have great follow-through, but while he's got the bit between his teeth, there's no stopping him!
Perhaps his positioning suggests he's easily distracted. His eye caught by the next "shiny thing", even as he gallops on by. Yeah, I can se that ;)
I could certainly do with some of the Knight of Wand's enthusiasm today. It's just over two weeks til the Lenormand Workshop I'm running in Atlantis Bookshop in London, and I've been a little slack in the advertising department. Part of it is that I don't feel very comfy doing any kind of self-promotion. Another bit, I guess, is that it somehow didn't feel real or close until we'd passed Christmas and New Year. Now, though, it looms large! *eek*
Yesterday I distributed a few flyers, and got tweeting. I also compiled a list of places that might have notice boards, so today I need to get my skates on - metaphorically, it's far too hilly around here to be safe roller skating ;)
I am grateful for the energy to get stuff done.
