Notebook: Page 7
New thoughts + next steps . . .
Over time, I’ve looked at a lot of newsletters, blogs and websites that just stopped, with no explanation. I didn’t want to do that! I won’t be publishing EP on a regular schedule, or even often going forward, and I wanted to explain why. But I also want to stay in touch with whoever is interested, so I’ll send out occasional posts about what I’m up to.
Substack is getting very crowded—and I’m thinking the EP approach to Tarot needs to go further afield. I’ll be figuring out where/how that can happen. (Sort of a butterfly thing!)
Second—here’s what I have in mind (at this moment) for the remaining transitional posts.
A couple of promises still need to be kept—part 2 of our look at Arnell Ando’s influential work, and some notes on Team Tarocchi’s “Virtual Study Day.” (I did watch—but it’s very technical, and half is in Italian, so not easy to summarize!)
Remember that list I found on an old legal pad? I followed up on items from the first two pages—but there are three more pages. I’ll post the remaining items, and hope to hear from anyone who does some further exploration.
I’m going through accumulated notes to find things I can share as-is, instead of writing about at length.
Third—I want to make some further connections and recommendations within the Substack network.
Substack now has a “follow” feature. If you haven’t followed me, I hope you will—that way you’ll know about all my Substack activities in future. And I plan to look for interesting writers to follow. As I do, I’ll share them here.
If you have a Substack, blog, or website—or you publish anything elsewhere that might interest EP readers—please leave a link in the comments to this post. Ditto if you know of someone else’s work you think folks should be aware of. You can also email me directly if you want to share any ideas.
Finally . . . some visual interest:
That’s “The Sun,” one of 78 paintings by the artistic collaboration Hilma’s Ghost. The paintings were reproduced in a deck titled Abstract Futures Tarot. Here’s a snap of the Major Arcana cards, taken from Benebel Wen’s review.
And here’s more about the gallery exhibition, “RADICAL SPIRITS: Tarot and Automatism in the Works of Hilma’s Ghost.”
See you tomorrow. C
