I got a deck of blank Tarot cards some 20 years ago. ("The Inspiration Tarot" by Patti Provo) I decided to improvise a song for each blank card. The goal is to pull a vector art shape from the song and use that for the card.
I looked at blank cards and sang them songs.
This is one of 100 songs I sang over two days.
These are very rough, as it was less about the song than about the process. The normal Tarot is 78 cards, but I'm working with an expanded Tarot of 105 cards where there are five suits named directly after their elements, there's a zero of every suit (bumping suit size to 15 cards) and the Major Arcana was bumped up to 30 cards.
In addition to the simple vector-style art for the blank cards, I needed a key meaning for the card so I could reasonably compare it with other Tarot resources.
Key Shape: Three Planets
Key Meaning: At Home in the Unknown
I considered calling this card: Time, Space, Mind
Time and Space!
The Material Plane!
Transcend Beyond Them and it's he same!
Planes and planes and sometimes toruses.
Sometimes spheres of indeterminate size.
What do you think?
What's in your mind?
Lots of places to explore.
What will you do?
What will you see?
Traveling inner spaces that's never gone before.
Brand new times!
Exploring the worlds
deep in your mind.
Or maybe, maybe not in your mind!
Actual other worlds!
Actual other places!
Far away and quite close by.
Maybe we could get there
with our minds.
What kind of spaces do you have inside?
Lovely, lovely spaces full of kindness.
Terrified spaces full of teeth that gnash.
What do you have inside?
Where have you been?
So many spaces to go my friend.
So many places to find yourself.
What do you do when you come upon a foreign place
and find yourself already resting there?
Quiet and comfortable and quiet at ease
in this strange world, deep within.
