Day #7 – Tarot

The sign read: Celtic Cross $15. The disheveled man was crouched in the nook of a tall, brick building in the middle of a bustling city street. Perched on a short stool, he sat quietly allowing his eyes to drink in the sight of his approaching customer. His smudged hands reached for the black satin bundle at the table’s center.

The two unshaven faces locked eyes as the reader handed the sacred deck to his audience of one. “Concentrate on your question and shuffle,” was the only...
