Entrances and exits

Entrances and exits June 4, 2020

Arcades Tarot by Camelia Elias, limited edition, 2019

As part of the world is invested in looking at the larger picture, the only mantra I can activate in solidarity with the underprivileged is to say, ‘about time.’

I put six cards down for it, from the Arcades Tarot, a Tarot I made with images in a mirror, as I wanted to get a sense of the inverse of the situation when entrances and exits are swapped, as it were. Some governments that got in are now going out, and one can only hope the the replacement will do a better job at fair administration.

But as the the world is full of fools and devils (World, Fool, Devil), with more devils being ushered through the doors, what guarantee is there that the broken relations will be restored in a temperate way and beyond mere compromise as dictated by emperors?

I like the Star at the top of this pyramid, doing her thing. Communities can do many things together, but the thing to remember is also that communities are compromised, fools and devils being part and parcel of the worldly package.

There isn’t much to say other than to point to this: when the world is invested in taking stock of the larger picture for the benefit of all, vanquishing the imbecile leaders and exorcising the hatred that has been disseminated, giving it all you’ve got as a free and inspired individual is the only saving grace.

May the Star guide us all.
