The one who suffers from repeated bouts of relational betrayal should seriously consider their part in co-creating the tragedy that continues to befall them. Betrayal in other words, often betrays the one betrayed, and that's the perverse angle one must learn to perceive.
The Alice Tarot gets its distinctive lush look from the Baba team's unique approach to illustration. Each card is based on photographs of places, animals, objects, and costumed people, collaged into seamless tableaux and blended through skillful illustration.
The Arab-Israeli conflict has been there my whole life, but this latest war has been more destabilizing than any other, disrupting any effort to manufacture the illusion of individuality, the illusion that we are not only subjects of history and nationhood.
I've been calling my friends and family in Israel a lot more since the war broke out -- indeed, I've probably phoned my brother more times in the past four weeks than I have in the 20 years since I left Israel to live in New York.
