Struggling with a concept - Please Help!

Major Tom  15 Dec 2001 
Ah my friends! Gather 'round while I tell you a story to illustrate my problem. :-)

I've been working on Major Tom's Tarot for more than a year now. I've completed 28 cards so far - only 50 more to go! :o

Most of my friends have no interest in tarot. When I started working on the deck it took quite a bit of talking to convince my friends that it was a worthwhile thing to do. :D Some outright refused to take part - while others went along with me - if only to keep me quiet. :D

My friends in this community are interested in tarot. :-) Here, I've found most everyone friendly and supportive. Kiama, DarkElectric and Tarotbear immediately grasped that I needed some help and sent me photographs. (thank you) The wise Faunabay and Talisman have promised me photographs. (thank you)

My difficulty lies in another attitude I've encountered here. The idea that appearing on a card in Major Tom's Tarot is some sort of honor. :o If having an impact on my life is an honor - a whole lot of people have achieved the distinction. :D Anyone I have ever communicated with qualifies. :D There's so many people in this community that qualify that I have difficulty understanding the concept that it's somehow an honor to appear on a card in the deck.

So - is there a card that particularly appeals to you? Let me know.

If you are reading this - you automatically qualify. }>

(Mostly, I need court and pip cards) :-)

please post your website link. i tried it on the aeclectic site but the link didn't work. i have an interesting picture of my brother WAY UP IN THE SKY on a fire/rescue ladder. he's an army medic. it might be good for a wands card if an army guy in the deck wouldn't offend a former airforce guy. ;) i know he wouldn't mind. i have some other ppl pictures but if you could clarify some of your ideas so we might help.

I don´t mind to be on one of your cards - just tell me what you want .......

uh and I checked your new cards out - they look greate - love the little lucifer cat, and the fact you´ve put him on lovers as guardian, hehe that reflects pretty well what lovers should be about, instead of the dead boring waite "Garden of Eden" thing.

I wouldn't mind being a court card or any other card you think would best suit your needs. Tell me what you need! (I don't know what I'd fit as though.) You can see a picture of me on my site http://www.angelfire.com/mi3/BashaCoves/index.html though my hair is darker there than it is now. ;) You can also e-mail me through the site.

Major Tom;

Well, it's true. I can be a little slow.

Only picked up on your project after reading this thread. My reaction can only be described as...glee. What a great thing to do! 


Major Tom  17 Dec 2001 
Truthsayer, Bec, Dagda and Blue - You have e-mail. :-)

If I get photos from the four of you - that will keep me busy for a while. :D

Did I mention I'm making a set of full resolution scans to distribute to participants? Should they want a set of course. }>

Thanks everyone. :-)

Actually, I DO consider it an honor to be a model for one or two of your cards, Major Tom! Your deck has a better chance of getting published than my book! LOL!!! We all have different ways to define our 'Fifteen minutes of fame!' Me? I need at least one 'Fifteen minutes of fame' a year!

LOL - i suppose honor - like beauty - is in the eye of the beholder. :-)

Actually Tarotbear you are on 2 cards and I have photos for a third. :-) (I'm struggling a bit with the 8 of Cups...)

I have no intention to ever publish Major Tom's Tarot - beyond the website that is. }>
