1-19-11 - Tarot not Taro

I love to get an email like this. I can't spell well and don't tend to even remember a word's spelling when I look a word up. However, I love details like these. Thanks Andrew! - DC

David,

"I'll miss our long conversations and your Taro readings." [From DC comments on Michael Gilmore's passing 2-16-11]

"Taro is native to southeast Asia. It is a perennial, tropical plant primarily grown as a root vegetable for its edible starchy corm, and as a leaf vegetable and is considered a staple in African, Oceanic andAsian cultures. It is believed to have been one of the earliest cultivated plants."

<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taro>

I believe you mean Tarot (pronounced the same):

"The tarot (first known as tarocchi, also tarock and similar names), is a pack of cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe to play a group of card games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways."

Best wishes,

Andrew
