Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)


I have asked the question: “Who am I today?” 

I have pulled my card from the Tarot of the Secret Forest and I have received the card of the Lovers. 


There are two butterflies on this card. One is naked and has really big red wings, so big, that they are quite difficult to keep them in the air, but ah well, she has got them, so she has to live with them, cannot get rid of your wings as a butterfly, can you? One of the wings is damaged. That butterfly is me.

The other butterfly is black and male. Mind you, that is me too. He is small, but fiery, at least that is how I perceive him. He is more hidden, does not come out much, but wow, he is important to me. I am lucky to have him today. Well, that is not quite honest, I’d rather not listen to him, I look the other way. But still, he holds me steadfast, so that I can find a balance, not being overwhelmed by this big, damaged red wings.

So there is me today, finding balance, being uphold by my dark and sensible me.
