The long-suffering reader here at Hestia Towers might know that I am quite keen on Tarot. Once a month I go up to Glasgow and provide a 2-hour workshop for people who want to develop their skills.
Last weekend was one such workshop and we were looking at spreads - everything from the value of single card readings right through to a big 36-card spread.
I spend ages writing the hand-outs, packing in as much as I can into the 2 hours with lots of practical excercises for the attendees to experiment with. I even stand in my bedroom and deliver them to the wall so that I can work out my timings so that I manage to get through the entire worksheet. Oh yes, I CAN work quite hard when the mood takes me.
So at the workshop, one lady, who is a regular, is sitting in front of me while I deliver some lines. I pause, allowing the team to start getting their decks organised for the first exercise.
