writing for the joie de vivre

Now that the art for the Joie de Vivre tarot is complete, scanned, designed, and sent to my publisher, it's time to write the Little White Booklet (LWB.)  Writing is a creative energy in which I love to partake, but it's an altogether different energy from that of the visual art, or the musical creation. 

Bringing forth little stories for 78 cards isn't necessarily as fun as a barrel of monkeys, but I'm greatly learning from the process. Having just completed writing the suit of coins (aka pentacles,) I'm reminded that the materialistic-structure of the characters and earthy energy of this suit enhances an understanding of the necessary balance between material and spiritual manifestations. Writing stories for the sword cards shines light on their heart-wrenching journey, yet also exposes their healing flame of revelation.  The firey, passionate energy of the wands has the potential of unleashing the lionheart within. 

Writing, writing, writing, and feeling happy about this project. Should be completed the writing part within the week. THEN it shall be done!
