>From: Jason Fisher <visualweasel@...>No, all that was just off the top of my head. I studied Tarot several years ago, and find that it often becomes a useful template for viewing things.

>I couldn't help but think of Italo Calvino's The Castle of Crossed Destinies, which makes very explicit use of the Tarot as a storytelling device.He's not the only one.
