You once said I could be your younger brother... I'd love to hear this story told by your voice!!!

Thank you for sharing!

I really envy your son - I'd prefer to be your elder son rather than your older bro! *LOL*

Goodnight... :*

That is a lovely story - thank you for letting us hear the rest of it. It is nearly time for me to 'close my eyes and go to sleep' and I think that when I do I'll have your story in my mind.

That is a great story....not just for kids but for illustrating the major cards to someone new to Tarot :)

Thanks for sharing it...I printed it out.

thank you for sharing your beautiful story diana. i'm going to print it out, and look forward to sharing it with my children. my 6yr. old daughter informed me yesterday, that she was making her own deck. (she started with the queen of wands.) this will be a perfect time to share your story with her.

Love this story Diana. I'm printing it out and save it for the day i have children of my own :)

This is so cool! It makes me want to write my own tarot-fairytale. Hey, maybe we could do a passover story, you know, where everyone writes a bit and then passes it on? That would be fun and useful at the same time. I think the main character should be the fool, though he doesn't have to walk through the tarot in order, necessarily. That way it'd be more surprising, and fun, and educational. Yay! Everything in one!

So, any takers?

What a sweet story! It's a wonderful tale, for kiddies, and adults too :)

Good idea. Why not start a new thread with your ideas, and we can decide how to go about it?
