Why not use the computer for journaling.........??????????

My LIFE is in the computer (and yes, I backup everything every day).

Anyway, I don't think I could hand write anymore even if my life depended on it......

Bravo!!!! Umbrae where were you when I started out? *LOL* I remember how overwhelmed I would get sometimes with the books ... and trying so hard to memorize those meanings. One day I just tired and I bought a notebook and put up all my books and did exactly what you said ... that is when I learned to love tarot. I cannot imagine living without my notebook(s) and pencil.

Hi Umbrae,

I've just stumbled across this/these threads from another one I was following.

Thank you for giving me another viewpoint. One which is helping me make more sense of my journey. I am a complete beginner, trying to reach my intuition, which upbringing has blocked off. I know that if I become wedded to the LWB I shall never be able to sever the cord!

In this thread you recommend reading 'A Wicked Pack of Cards'. I've looked on Amazon (.co.uk) and there are several books with the same title. Please can you tell me who the author is?

I felt that way about Connolly book "tarot - a new handbook for the Apprentice" which a friend gave to me years after I had gottenn into tarot. She found it under her bed where it had been for years. As I read this book which follows similar lines - that you must know ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING ABOUT A CARD BEFORE YOU EVEN TOUCH THEM (?????) - I was struck by the concept of how boring they were making Tarot for the apprentice. Looking at the notes my freind made in the margins, it took her a lot of time to start (and give up, finally) on this book. I calculate that a VERY interested person would be studying for at least four months before they ever touch the cards ... NO way, Jose!

Wow Umbrae, that was fantastic. You’re a really engaging writer. Thank you for all that advice. I know you said spiral notebook but I really like the pretty journals…. so I went out and got one and I’m stealing a pencil from work. Oops I mean borrowing

Why don't you ask Umbrae if he won't PUBLISH A BOOK!!!!!!!

Maybe he'll listen to you. He doesn't listen to me.
