The Tarot of Mental Illness

I’ve talked about mental illness before. But in my opinion, as someone who’s had extensive experience in this area, you can never talk about it enough. There are lots of peeps suffering out there with one form or another of this insidious disease.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Easter is a time of hope. It therefore seems the perfect moment to explore the riveting survival tale of the Jewish man who tattoed prisoners at the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War 2. His story has not come to light until now because of the incredible guilt he carried about what he was forced to do to his fellow prisoners.

The Tarot of a Music Concert

Most peeps think a selfish mom is a bad mom. Women are under enormous pressure to put everyone else’s needs before their own. From their children. Their husbands. The parents at the school gate. The media. Their own expectations of what’s right.

So what could possibly be good about having a selfish mom? Continue reading
