Darkest Entertainment

Dear Friends,
Author of The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern vividly paints all manner of fantastical imagery within her traveling, black and white-themed circus. The magical spectacle only appears during the darkest part of night. As you can imagine, there is a colorful troupe of carnival characters – each specializing in something extraordinary – one such person is a Fortuneteller. She reads tarot cards and sees into the beyond.

My delicate daughter bought her first set of tarot cards a few weeks ago. She couldn’t resist. Barnes and Noble cleverly places bewitching, giant red dots on sales merchandise. She has since been learning the way of the cards. I was her first reading victim. According to the cards: My present looks hopeful. My future looks either quite amazing or very frightening. The delicate daughter wasn’t sure which. I guess I’ll have to wait and see…

Thank you. May you dream of good fortune throughout your present and future…

  1. Love the Red Card Jester! And tarot cards … I didn’t even know B&N sold them! I’ll have to look in my store next time I go (which should be any day now). I suppose you’ve already taken your walk for the day — good for you! You have inspired me to get out in the mornings before I go to work. For that, I thank you!


    • He was fun to do – I thought his head was a bit too big then I decided to leave it and let him enjoy a huge cranium 😉 B&N sells many sneaky things and we always walk dangerously close to those darn red dot sales bins 🙂 Yes, the hubbie and I walked, now sipping coffee, of course, then off to get ready for whatever the day is going to bring.


  2. I think quite often our amazing futures are frightening…the cards are most likely right! I love my tarot and wish I knew how to use them better. And your red queen is delightful! – Fawn
