Subject: FlashCards

As an interesting bridge to understanding, some years ago I created a Tarot deck in sign language using Sign Writing to translate the basic spiritual concepts of the ancient spiritual tool into ASL. The readings were always interesting and fascinated both my Deaf and hearing friends. Here is a bridge from a visual intuitive system to a visual language.

This deck is available to anyone interested, I just have to retrieve it and try to retype it all as it is written "receptively" not the present "projective" standard.
