Readers Studio 2010–Thursday Evening

Hello from New York and the Tarot event of the year!

Thursday evening is the early start of the main event. Some of the attendees went to an optional class taught by Wald and Ruth Ann on Color, Custom, and Choreography. These lucky folks also got to visit the Merchant’s Faire.

I was not one of those lucky folks. But I was lucky, too, because I hung out in the bar with some well-known tarot readers, authors, and teachers.

There is nothing quite like sitting around a large table and talking tarot with people you have so long admired. We discussed controversial subjects such as tarot certification and the role of the tarot reader in society. We talked about decks we loved. We talked about excavating the centuries of tarot history to discover what we may have left behind and what we might “rediscover” and incorporate into modern tarot practice. We ruminated over the difference between serving tarot or making the tarot serve us. We waxed nostalgic over our dearly departed Santo Brian (aka Brian Williams, a much loved tarot artist who was taken from us too soon). We laughed. We were silly, giddy with the fabulous energy created as the tribe gathered to celebrate the art and craft that we love so dearly.

And now, I must find some breakfast before the big first official day begins!
