When Marcy Erb posted her Tower bird tarot card, it reminded me that when she had previously posted the Wheel of Fortune, I meant to look for the one I had done long ago.  So I finally did.

I produced this Photoshop Wheel of Fortune when computers were toys, not necessities.  A friend who was a graphic designer sold me her old computer, complete with graphic programs.  I took a Photoshop class and had fun experimenting until all of a sudden I had lots of paying work and little playing time, and then the computer died.  I lost the thread of what I had been doing, but it’s fun to think about where the ideas might have gone had circumstances been different.

And the poem…perhaps a tritina.  At the very least, a nonet with a coda.

I’m taking a break until 2016.  Happy New Year to one and all!

    I’m not sure which it is, both probably. Very mysterious-sounding poem, exactly the kind of mood to suit tarot-related things.

    I really, really love this and am amazed at your prowess with Photoshop. I’m not sure if I’m taking a break or not, I’ve been on a roll and it helps to post. Anyway, I could never attempt to do a drawing of this (I wanted to but then took a good look at it). You should definitely do more of this type of work. Genius.
