The Traveler – Harlequin of the Road

Today’s image serves as a notification that I have added a new page to Implied Spaces – The Keltic Layout for the Tarot : Plot Structure. Claudia McGill  had expressed interest in how the Eden Gray Keltic Layout can be used as a writing prompt, I finally have the page up and properly linked. The layout contains elements of both plot outline and the character sketch. Check out the page for more information.

NOTE: The image, one of my early attempts at creating a Tarot card,  is from What if Wednesday: Travelling to The Knick of Time , which is found on my blog, Dark Pines Photo.



Asemic Tarot Cards

Asemic Tarot 1 – Intersection Tooshna#-bib0ski-c/ha



Asemic Tarot 2 – Roar chah!k perogies

Asemic Tarot 4 – Basilikatata Vectorible ᐅᒃᐱᒃ-urgnto*?h

Asemic Tarot Background & Uses


Asemic Tarot cards are distinctive in non-being. There is no accurate meaning/interpretation for any card, nor is there any formal layout. The ranking is capricious, as is the size and shape; they do not fit any standard. The names are a blend of real and alternative languages using a mix of cultures and symbols. For example, ᐅᒃᐱᒃ is an example of the Inuktitut constructed script.


Note that the back/front side of the cards are comparable to an inner side of a Schrödinger box. You won’t know what it is until – see it, perhaps.

The most often displayed sides can be used for kitchen sink clairvoyance or getting rid of earworm melodies. They are effective tools in holistic detection of random events and objects, as well as helpful in remembering words/names you forgot you knew. They can also be arranged to present a possible map/chart to something or other, maybe.

The cards are very effective at anticipating/remembering alternative timelines, and ruptures in Hypertime or Déjà vu. It is best to record any insights using Doodles, Surrealist Automatism or Glossolalia.



walking after midnight



I go out walkin’ after midnight

Out in the moonlight

Just like we used to do, I’m always walkin’

After midnight, searchin’ for you…..


I walk for miles along the highway

Well, that’s just my way

Of sayin’ I love you, I’m always walkin’

After midnight, searchin’ for you……

Phantasm Photos: 1-4



Over the years the phantasm has been photographed . While changing photographic methods captured impressions of the entity to varying levels of success, there remains evidence of some features being consistent. This gives hope that one day a better understanding of the phenomena will be achieved. It is unfortunate about the photographers though, quite curious,….. Makes it rather difficult to get photographers willing to participate in research.

Wearing out shoes in my sleep


Wearing out shoes in my sleep,

I walk along the right angled

curvature of implied spaces.


Stopping to smell the roses,

their bushes have dog biscuits for leaves –

the thorns, are the mourning dove’s call.

Knotty cabbages –

such fine billows bugle outward,

petrified olives.


Feathers fall slowly,

turn to grains of sand, bleeding –

trombones’ sleeping eyes .


Saltation ‘s shoreline –

glass harpsichord’s kiss slips by,

jellyfish rumba .

Whispering willows –

tooth paste tap dancer steps out,

coral cormorant .


Lounging out the door –

now creep pages without words,

peckish cranky oust.


Wings of cow dung hit –

a lento, cavalier stars,

a corpuscle of soil –

sandwiched between fast seconds,

soles slide past boughs of strange sheep .


Be prepared for sharp turn ahead –

watch for falling molluscs & steam tractors,

summon superlative hexagons,

small blacksmith artifacts.



Old Woman Moon laughs

as the bridge spins platitudes of pudding.

The hive is now full of tranquil ditties

sharpened on spider silk.

Finally, defoliate whine glasses

as the silence seeps into the toes.
