A Gift

Life

My husband and I watched a documentary on the Tarot a few weeks ago. This jogged his memory that he’d bought a few tarot packs when we lived in Santa Cruz, so he went upstairs to look for them in our spare room. He came downstairs with them and started sorting through the Rider Waite deck while I picked up the Morgan Greer deck and shuffled through the cards. As we were marveling at the illustrations in both decks, Raf said, “you can have the Morgan Greer deck.” I was all, “Cool! Thanks!”

It’s funny because technically this deck has been in my possession for as long as we’ve been married (20 years this past June) and I have laid eyes on it every day because it sits in our bookcase in the room that I meditate in. I literally have started at the cover of this deck for at least 10 minutes everyday for about 7 years. I’ve never touched these cards once (or any of the others. I do like to play with a digital version of the Tarot on my phone, though). Yet when Raf said, “you can have this deck” it suddenly felt like a very precious gift. I’ve looked at them everyday and I love them. I love the illustrations and I love attempting to do tarot readings with them. I look forward to using them in the future. 🙂
