Woke up a bit later than yesterday, my muscles thanked me for that. Started off the day unboxing the BATSchwag that Llewellyn and US Games, Inc. send out to attendees (thanks companies for the neat stuff). Attendees received a Mibramig Magical Tarot deck and Intuitive Tarot workbook. Soon after, I was called into the main room to help out with orders and whatnot.

That’s where I stayed most of all day. I manned both the Tarot Media Company booth and the Millard Fillmore Memorial Spiritualist Temple Garage Sale items. Drew voluntold me for the lunchtime sherpa rush (seconds after I mentioned to RoseRed about not wanting to do it, hahaha karma!) and I got some good exercise in during that period of time.

In the afternoon, I was able to slip away for one class. This was Anastasia Haysler’s Tarot by Numbers. Now I have known Anastasia for years now but have NEVER been able to attend a class taught by her. She has a great energy and passion for Tarot and numbers. While much of class revolved around using a number system to “read the cards,” she also included information regarding the Pythagorean Theory and how that can relate back to the cards. Also, the Fibonacci sequence. It was a good mental exercise and I now have ways to get my nerd and geek friends into Tarot.

The symposium concluded with a round of giving away fabulous prizes and alas, I did not win anything. We also tore down and packed BATS back into the bags that the conference lives in the rest of the year. Usually at this point I would join my friends once more in the lobby for drinks and restoratives but a good friend of mine arrived at this time to take me to see NIN at the Shoreline.

 

Yes, I was THAT close to the stage at NIN

By midnight, I arrived home, safely to my “home away from home” feeling sore, happy, satisfied and tired. One more BATS in the can and I look forward to my next Tarot adventure in October: Theresa Reed’s Soulful Proprietor Retreat!
