it's been so neat reading all your stories. mine is also a very interesting one, but it will take a bit of telling; bear with me ;}
this week, my friends for some reason all started trying to put scarves and blankets or anything else they could find underneath my gill deck. i've had this for a year now and use it constantly. no one (not even the deck) has ever asked me about putting a scarf or any such thing underneath it. i took this as a definite sign that i needed to go through my scarves and pick a few out to try out with my gill deck. so, thursday night, i took out a red, brown, and green polyester scarf that we all decided was the best (even more appealing than the silk ones i had brought over) and i tried to do readings with my gill deck on it. she -[hated]- it. she likes being in touch with whatever surface i am reading on. she thought i was being silly. clearly. so, now i was a bit confused at why the universe was so clearly telling me to pick up a scarf for my deck when my deck clearly didn't want one.
it didn't hit me till late last night...
while out at the mall with a friend last night, i walked past a shelf with the faeries oracle on it. implusively, i bought it, along with four faerie postcards (i collect faerie cards of all sort if you'd like to send me a postcard or two!!!) and a postcard that says "i poke badgers with spoons" which is exceptionally funny since two things my friends know me best for is my love of spontaneous badger attacks (while playing d&d) and my slight spoon fetish. the world is so very in love with me right now and i am loving it back
so, anyway, to get back to the story... last night, while at my friend's house, looking at the cards, i knew they didn't want to go back into their box. and who could blame them? so i pulled out the scarf mentioned above, and they seem so very happy there, though much happier when i have them out and talking.
but, i won't be posting much else here for a while, i think. i want to talk with them more before i talk about them. they are -[so]- talkative, but i don't yet understand their language and would rather learn from them, at first anyway, than from others.
right now, i'm talking a lot with luathas and himself. and the topsy turvets seem to have a lot they want to say also.
i am so glad i got this deck, and so amazed at their personalities. while my gill deck might be decidedly a she, this one can only be described as a they, a collective.
