Gunnar Gets to the Core of Things
It’s Saturday but I think it’s Sunday. What does this mean? I don’t know but it gets confusing.
I grabbed four decks to use for a bit. First up is the delightful Experimental Tarot, one I love just because he used the CorelDraw library for clip art. It looks so crisp, so linear, so gorgeous, and the font is a favourite too.
8 CORE (8 of Pentacles)
Nothing less will do.
I did actually ask a question before drawing this: “Tell me about pain.”
This reminds me of the last line of Yeats’s wonderful poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree: “I hear it in the deep heart’s core.”
I like the hint Gunnar Kossatz writes in the book:
“Your limits are much wider than you may think they are. Take up the task. Endurance is a valuable learning experience in this world.”
So, disciplined effort and extreme tenacity will bring me to the ultimate depth, Alpha and Omega, the core of things.
I hear it, I see it like an eyelid opening, like the heart of a seed springing to life, and I keep going and wait.
