“A Place of Restful Possibilities” by Ian Bryant

I Was Recently Sent

I was recently sent a link by a friend:

You might like what Ian Bryant is up to on Tarot Sushi.

it was certainly not click-bait.


Yes, I do like it TWO-FOLD! Of course I like it as Ian Bryant is driving the Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck the way it was meant to be driven, HIS way, AND also his piece A Place of Restful Possibilities written as a meditation on the bed of a Mystereum slab altar as a spread is dialed in and connected and alive and refreshing. It took me on a journey at the intensity levels of deck creation when I was immersed and swimming and dialed in connected with the archetypes and characters as if we were old friends, because we are.

I Encourage You

I encourage you to check out Ian Bryant’s Story A Place of Restful Possibilities, and as well his work on the Tarot Sushi site. I cherish the story A Place of Restful Possibilities as a sculpture, Mystereum as the armature, and the warm-up armature of M is not part of the visible performance —references from teh book owned and fully made his own — filled Ian’s tanks with the high octane good stuff for a wonderful journey to connection. Oh, nah, that’s not a spoiler. The writing and story are too good in Ian’s piece for that one detail to be anything more than vague and ambiguous tease here. No tease there, though. Check out Ian Bryant’s A Place of Restful Possibilities on the Tarot Sushi site.

I am Honored. I am plussed. I cherish Ian using Mystereum the way it was meant to be used… to enhance and reinforce and strengthen and amplify His Life, His Way. Your Life, Your Way is the Way of The Land of Mystereum, ImaginAction, and ImaginAction 2.0. Best to you always finding your best way.

May the ground always rise up to support your every step. Especially, when there was no ground there as you began to step.

~ Jordan paraphrasing an Irish Proverb to The Fool for the Leap… where The Fool might not even leave the ground, simply experience the flight in the interstice between each and every steps. Skip in the step, anyone?

Thank you, Ian. Treasure. Your Story is True Treasure. Thank you!

    Jordan, I just saw your comment on my piece on the Tarot Sushi page, and then this appears in my subscriptions Inbox! I’m so honored to know you liked the piece. It’s your deck and writing in the accompanying deck that sparked the fire for this and as a newly formed storyteller it was an invaluable tool in getting me to completion. I’m still in the early stages of my relationship with Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, but I am all in! Such a refreshing tarot and truly a portal to new worlds. Thanks, again. This really made my day and I look forward to more of your wonderful posts on this blog. Every one of them takes me to new places. Cheers!

      Oh MY ARE YOU all in, Ian! I am honored and thoroughly look forward to continued engagement with your work. It’s a pleasure to hear that my fresh language took a spark to a flame!, especially since you are just getting into Tarot in the Land of Mystereum. It feels to have dropped you right in the drivers seat with a Queen of Cups and King of Wands natural emotional and energetic balance with dynamism. Having little or no previous experience with the deck, it feels almost as if you are site reading, and that’s one of my favorite gigs. To open and go, actionably..

      This has really made my day. I had ablution tingles throughout my body reading your story. Yes, there was the seed husk of high octane fresh to fuel the spark to a flame, though as I moved through the journey of your story, it was your story that was dosing the tingles. Such a resonant connection full-on dialed in expressed in “A Place of Restful Possibilities.”

      This is is such a pleasure to have my work be a high octane fuel to dial in yours. Here’s to portals to new worlds!

      I thoroughly appreciate your accolade on my blog posts, and on Mystereum being such a refreshing Tarot and truly a portal to new worlds. Cheers!

      Thank you, Nilesh, and I appreciate your read! I feel it to be one of the highest accolades for my work to be the/a creative catalyst of Ian Bryant’s “A Place of Restful Possibilities” story. I love that the warm-up is often not part of the performance, and that he owned and made it his own everything my book juiced him with. Catalyst, fuel in the tank, though the vehicle and the expertly creative writing driving skill is all Ian’s own. I wholeheartedly receive the story as highest accolade and at one and the same time cherish that even I FORGOT about my book (yes, I recognized the references) and swam immersed in Ian’s story “A Place of Restful Possibilities.” THe tingles I received cascading through me inspired me back from the story standing on its own! Now, THAT’s some soulful tennis. 🙂

      Again, thanks for visiting, Nilesh. Your comment is received and appreciated.
