“There are two sorts of romantics: those who love, and those who love the adventure of loving.”
~ Lesley Blanch
Gah. This was one of those... "creative block" episodes. I could NOT get these pesky Lovers to in any way look... lover-ly. I think my inability to articulate The Lovers in image form stems from my somewhat conflicted feelings about love, in general. Romantic love is, of course, a vital component of the human experience. From a personal perspective, however, that kind of love has been as painful as joyous. The Tarot card is meant to symbolize being "in love," making contact with a "true love" and, usually also represents finding happiness and satisfaction in this arrangement. However, in my own life, the only perfect and flawless love I have ever experienced is that between myself and my children. Perhaps that is why I found representing "lovers" to be so challenging. My own heart belongs to a different kind of love. And so, instead of portraying passion, I tried to show the innocence and sweetness of love in its purest sense with this card.
