Visibility Emblem: Tarot Cards

I feel that it’s only natural to continue with the fortune teller theme using tarot cards as the emblem of visibility.  Tarot cards contain only pictures on one side.  This leaves them at the mercy of their interpreter.  Once again, one must have the ability to create a story from what they see.  Cards can be interpreted in different ways.  For example, death doesn’t necessarily mean death of the body but it can be a transformation of the soul or a rebirth, if you will.  True, with these loose interpretations, the cards will always be right.  What is more important than the future being told is the precise way in which someone reads the cards, intelligently and creatively.  Like Calvino as a young boy making up stories for pictures without words, the tarot card can be interpreted however the reader pleases.
