Deviant Moon Tarot (U.S. Games, 2007) creepy.
In this Ten of Wands we have a rather prehistoric looking character. With his three fingers and three toes, and his head like a pterodactyl, he’s hardly going to win any beauty contests. He walks along a light path, surrounded by a bleak landscape. The colours are all muted, from the dark brown and black of his robe to the dusty brown of the twiggy-looking landscape. Even the landscape looks like a sepia take on black, with a full moon shining from above. The brightest things are the gold of his mechanical eye and the red of his lips, which only serves to highlight the sharpness of his teeth.
Still, I find hope in the fact that he walks a bright path amongst the rough landscape. Though burdened by ten thick, wooden staves, he carries on regardless. His mechanical eye peers out at the world, assessing where he is going. Sometimes, we need that kind of unthinking dedication to help us move forward.
It's funny, I don't really feel this way today. I have plenty to do, it's true, but none of it has a fixed deadline, which I always find more stressful. Though some of the paperwork I have to read is certainly going to be boring... The only really burdensome thing is that I have to wait at home for a couple of deliveries (medical equipment for Big Boy, and a present for his friend, whose birthday we're going to on Saturday).
I am grateful for the ability to order things and have them delivered to my home.
