19 Nov My first reading
My first tarot reading for somebody I didn’t know was for Cristina. Cristina was going through a hard time. A friend of Mari’s. Her parents’ were ill, she just broke up with a boyfriend she had for many years. When asked if I would read for her, I hesitated. Cristina showed her interest in meeting me before I started to read tarot. She had asked Mari if she would come to Scotland, would I be willing to talk to her and Mari to translate. I thought at that time this is a bit too much and now, when she was facing problems, the fact she didn’t know English was even more in the way. I was not ready to play such an important part in somebody’s life. That feeling lasted one or two days, I don’t remember exactly, after which, completely vanished. I am finding myself late in the evening, at Mari’s door. The ex-boyfriend is in Spain, Cristina with her parents in Bulgaria, me and Mari, at a farm in Scotland, reading tarot cards live on Skype, in English, a language which is none of our native language. Mari is translating for Cristina in Bulgarian. The bond is perfect.
