About

I generally like to let my writing and. . . um. . .exercises in creativity speak for me.

I read a lot. I have a large card collection that I use for creative writing and generally messing around. I find the artwork and creativity of others inspiring. I also like to learn continually and cards can be a surprising conduit to knowledge about people and the world.

This blog is a way to ramble through tangents and learning to keep in touch with my collection of books and cards and to avoid having my card collection languish on a shelf.

Some considerations:

~ “I need more than one factor, at least two. Two factors that are not related in any way. The creative act for me rests in the coupling of these two different factors in order to produce a plastic poem.” [Man Ray]

~ Dogmatism is the worst enemy of education. [Emma Goldman]

~ Ubiquity is not a measure of talent. [Judith Johnston]

~ “The prize is the pleasure of finding the thing out, the kick in the discovery…” [Richard Feynman]

~ L’OSTACOLO ƈ VINTO DA UN’AZIONE DECISA
The obstacle is defeated by a decisive action.

    Holy moly. 344 decks. Wow. That is very impressive. I just came across your blog so I’m going to wonder through and enjoy reading. Keep it up šŸ™‚

      Actually, I’m hunting down 350 soon as a friend of mine in the UK just sent me something.

      There are many, many people who own more decks than I. I’ve come to the point where I am somewhat picky about what I buy–hard to believe but true. There are a lot of copycat decks out there or poorly done digital decks and collage. Been there, done that.


  2. Greetings: What a superb blog you have created. I have added your link to the Card Readers Community Directory. I found your link on Jase on Cards blog (lucky for me). You are a gifted & creative writer. Thank you for sharing.
