In May 2020 I had a dream, a fortune teller read the Tarot to me, and it was a deck with beautiful and rare images of Revolution and Pandemic and things related to the pandemic and our time.
I decided to ask my artist friends to create this deck all together, and after several months I got 78 images of 23 artists. Later I had another dream, where the fortune teller read me the Tarot but with poems. When I woke up I started calling my friends local poets, and after few months working in that part, I have 43 poets involved in the project.
It is fantastic to have a community that supports dreams, which when made real will cause more dreams and new realities.
I finally got a local publisher for this project, J. K. Fowler form Nomadic Press, and this is really a dream coming true.
Thanks to all my collaborators, specially Reneé Baldocchi, I can recognize love and artwork, as a revolutionary act in the middle of pandemic.
