[Nodding, nodding.] The Ace, I like the way you phrased that.

I see another go 'round on having too many decks over at AT. We've all traded decks at one time or another, so that is meaningless as a benchmark for seriousness or scholarly dedication, and the insistence that people have little intellect, depth, or reading ability because they collect decks is misinformation at best and ignorance at worst.

I'm not quite sure why some cannot parse this connection to exploration and its concomitant vitality. If I had the money, I'd take all of Adam's courses on Tarot Art and History; not because it will make me a better reader, but because it will make me a better human.

However, I am quite excited to see you have bought the Dante! The art on that is exquisite.

And thank you for your comments on my web site--my reconnection to art and creativity is a direct result of tarot cards.
