Curiosity Helped the Cat
So, I decided to give the old video reading another go for a bit of practice. For this one, I wanted to try Ana Cortez's Cat Spread with tarot, which meant amending my deck to suit. I tried to upload a decent resolution video to YouTube, but after a whole night of uploading and it still showing two hours left and growing, I scrapped it and have put out this low-res version. To be honest, it doesn't make that much difference to the essence of the film. I did notice, however, that I make one mistake. When I say that there are 13 weeks in a lunar year, I actually mean a season. That's what happens when nerves get the better of you. Gosh, I hate watching myself on camera. Part One of the reading can be seen here.
I wouldn't say it is my most accomplished reading, but as I continue to repeat to myself, practice makes perfect. We live and learn, eh? One of my old art lecturers used to advise me to not hide my mistakes and to 'get the s**t out'. His idea was that once we had tried (whether a success or failure), we would make way for greater things. So this is me, 'getting the s**t out'. Part Two of the reading can be seen here.
