(The High Priestess) 36K, Tarot card, 3x5", 1978-1981 by Chris Wayan.

The card of intuition, dreams--and asking.

She knows all the secrets. And might just tell you... If you riddle her.

The real question is, can you take her answers? King Oedipus couldn't. He tore out his own eyes because he couldn't bear the answers he saw.

"If thine eye offend thee, pluck it out." Well that's one answer.

Or, you could pace your questions.

Or, learn to endure a bit more offense.

Truth is not out to get you.
