On it we see a couple, each behind what look like riot shields, and wearing blue helmets and clothes. I'm guessing, though, that the protective shields are meant to be seen in a more scientific light. In between the two people floats a flaming shape within a bubble. I think it's a three-dimensional version of the Star of David, but I have no idea what it's called (any ideas, please comment!) They appear to be floating on clouds, themselves, with a rather brown, amorphous landscape behind them.
It seems like they are watching a version of the original Big Bang, though I think I'd want rather better protection in that case. Either way, this is a card of new beginnings, of the magic of everyday life. It reminds me a little of an old song: "Children of Coincidence" by Dory Previn (it's too old to appear on youtube, sorry). The song talks of all the tiny coincidences that go into making up our lives "If you hadn't made that left hand turn, if I hadn't made a right..." So too, here, this is a card of potential, of the wonder of what might be...
Today may well feel like a new beginning for me - it'll be the first time in over a week that Big Boy has gone to school. Even with others around to help out, it reminds me of something Carla over at Rowan Tarot said a while back - that between work, cooking, eating, and sleeping, there are very few "free" hours in the day. So, even a few less makes a big difference - I haven't done anything on the Celtic Lenormand all week, and am just barely managing my daily blogs. Have barely shown my face on other people's blogs (I will try to catch up now he's back at school) and have also been AWOL on Facebook - hmm, perhaps that's not such a bad thing ;)
I am grateful for a little more time to make a start on things.
