My dearest friends, the time has come for me to tell a Tarot Card Readers tale! But this week, it's more of a Tarot Card Readers confession!!! You're buddy KenBoggle is developing a little addiction and he needs to confess! So, let's BLOG about it!
I simply have too many Tarot Decks and refuse to stop buying more!!! It's like this... I started with the SteamPunk deck. I LOVE the SteamPunk deck and I only use the SteamPunk deck. However, I constantly buy other decks!!!
We all remember the short-lived glory of the, "Gold Deck." Remember? It is the one that has Gold edges and was all I could talk about for a hot minute??? It was wonderful and very impressive, but one day they stopped working for me! The information was not coming out accurate! What was coming out was disconnected and fragmented. Sadly, I put them away, never to be used again.
Shortly after, I purchased ANOTHER expensive deck. It was supposed to be the ORIGINAL Tarot deck, the one we all remember from the 70's ... with the yellow box. WRONG. These are a reprint and aren't vintage at all. I purchased 2 more decks, making the same mistake EACH TIME. I kept all three of these decks, never to be used again.
Then, there is my "prized" deck, the WatchTower Angel deck, autographed by Michele Bellanger! I purchased it at Scarefest, this year. I love them, they are stunning. I look at them EVERY day. But sadly, I haven't been able to sit down and enjoy getting to know that deck. Further, it is so prized that I don't want to use it in EVERY reading. SO, I treasure it from afar, never to be used.
Then comes yesterday.... Yesterday, I purchased ANOTHER deck. This one has SILVER edging, REAL SILVER!!! Those of you, who have seen me in person, know that I rock the silver... i.e. silver rings and braclet. So, they match!!! On top of that, the imagery is GORGEOUS!!! But they were so expensive, I feel bad for even opening them. So there they sit.... never to be used.
Can we all agree that I have a FREAKING problem?! Add to this my growing OBSESSION with "Easy Pay" on QVC, and you've got your self a KenBoggle storm a-brewin!!! I need an intervention!!! I've got a problem, y'all!
So, what can I do to fix this? What would make me feel better? I believe that having a use for these decks, that would help. Should we autograph some and give them away? Should we resale them at a bargain book store? I don't know. I do know that I will be keeping the Gold deck, because... GOLD. I will be keeping the Silver deck, because... SILVER. Doubtlessly, I will be keeping the Michele Belanger deck. And of course... I will be keeping the SteamPunk deck.
How many will I keep using? Probably, just the SteamPunk deck. Why? Because I have a FREAKING problem, y'all.
