Daily Draw: The Tarot Classic ~ 6 of Cups

Every time I woke up last night I made quick notes about my dreams, for a year end spread I'm doing. Veddy interesting...As my 90 year old father in law says, "when I have time" I might make a dream journal.

I'm reminded by this card that souvenirs do not have to be seaside kitch or Remington bronzes, but can be our memories. Much easier to carry around and store. Sometimes they are faulty, or fuzzy, or painful, but we are the sole proprietor and they are ours to draw upon when needed. It is certainly another way to exercise the brain, critical to keeping dementia at bay.

"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.". ~ Jeremy Irons 1948-

Another beautiful deck this week from Lo Scarabeo published in 2007. Lo Scarabeo has published a good number of reproductions of ancient and classical decks and I for one, am very grateful. It is certainly the only way most readers could ever hold and use these tarots. The original 1835 deck featured engravings by Carlo DellaRocca of Milan, and was then printed in Lombardy by Gumppenberg.
