A Big, "Howdy Y'all" From Texas!

I became interested in tarot back in the late 1970's. I read extensively from the books available at the time, collecting material over a period of years. I used the information and cards mostly for meditation and self improvement. But, I eventually did some readings, and even set up a tarot table at a local (California) psychic fair. Then, an odd thing happened. Our Catholic housekeeper of many years became spooked by my tarot materials, and up and quit us. My wife at the time became concerned, and she insisted that I give up the cards. So, I did. Now, it's thirty years later, and everything has changed. My previous wife died, and I've remarried. I just recently discovered that my new wife, Susan, has her own R/W deck, and has used the cards herself for many years. So, my interest in tarot has been re-kindled. I've set out to re-aquire my tarot library, updated of course, and to refresh my knowledge. I've forgotten so much! I've started out to re-read Meditations On The Tarot, which I always felt to be a most inspiring work. And I have Sally Nicholes' and Barbara Walker's wonderful books lined up to re-read next. I'm so excited to be on the path again! And now, there is the internet and this marvelous forum to help me along. I am so appreciative. Thank you all for being here, and I look forward to participating with y'all in the years to come. Blessings to all.
