Card readings have been familiar to me since I was a very young child. My maternal Grandmother was the one with the ‘gift’ for telling people’s fortunes using a regular deck of playing cards. Her intuitive abilities were apparent when she was a young lady, still living in the old country (Italy), and it was a gypsy fortune teller that recognized Grandma’s gift and mentored her until she was confident and capable of using her gift, along with the cards, to read for friends and family members. By the time I met Grandma and was allowed to observe her readings, she had honed this art along with all the classic drama of a matronly Italian Grandmother of the 50’s. I was duly impressed. Grandma was magical and just a bit scary to a 5 year old, but the magic part was always the best! So, in my continuing fascination with all things magical, informative and fun, for the past almost 5 years, I’ve been using an intuitive, user friendly, do-it-yourself website for readings along the lines of Grandma’s. It will never be the same as her dramatic presentation, but is perfect for checking in and learning how to ask the right questions. With that said, Click here for a FREE Tarot Reading, and let me know if you find it helpful, entertaining or post whatever your comments are on the subject of card readings. I’d love to hear your opinion and experiences on this subject.
More Mango talk… guess I get a bit carried away on some projects, but am still enjoying this one and it has already taken on a life of its own. Pauline Goldsmith, a fabulous botanical artist, friend and fellow Fairchild Garden volunteer has curated a Mango Art Exhibition for this year’s annual Mango Festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. I’ll have 3 of the Making Mango Salsa series artworks on display in this show and this week plan to have all of them available for purchase online. Will let you know when they’re ready! In the meantime, you can see most of the series on my New Work page. Sign up for my occassional newsletter and special offers and you will instantly get a copy of my Zingy Mango Salsa Recipe – the same one that’s the culmination of the Making Mango Salsa series.
