Hello, Jill. I'm a big fan of yours from Nashville, TN. I've seen you photographed a few times holding what looks like a 9 of hearts from a Lenormand deck. Why this card --or what does it represent to you? ~Thanks much, Chris Lindsey.
Very astute Chris! I find divination in found objects. For the last twenty or so years, I've collected stray playing cards I find on the streets—I call it "sidewalk divination" or "cosmic poker." Boxes and boxes, hundreds of them are displayed in my apartment; they're some of my most precious belongings. Specific ones are with me at all times, just like my talismans and charms.
So always on my stage keyboard, found cards are hiding.
Fans from all over the world now send me cards and the shared energy is incredible. The 9 of Hearts has special significance to me, as a wish card. It's my most personal card. That particular Lenormand card was sent in a bundle from a fan.
I hope I can pass that energy on to you— the purposeful hidden magic in stray things. xox
Just was at the Edwardian Ball this weekend for both nights and afternoon tea and sorely miss your appearance, not quite the same without you as this years MC was a bit of a drag, in not mysterious, just rather whiney and self degrading.JILL TRACY responded on 01/25/2017 Next question
Jillian, I be curious to your ancestry, as you remind me of a long lost love from Wales. Alas, she was a Silkie mind you, and upon finding her seal skin, swept away from me on a full moon night back into the sea and far away from me. She has eyes as blue as skies, reflected from a shinning sea, much like thee, and a face that would beckon a kiss from a heart so beholden. But she's been gone these seven years and I do wonder if you might be related to these ancient ones from the Irish sea, these Silkies whom play in the surf and taunt mortals like me!JILL TRACY responded on 10/06/2017
