Eastern Forest Playing Cards
Turn on your senses and explore the forest! Every suit is a sense. Hearts are invitations to touch and feel through your skin: textures of plants, heat of animal bodies, and springiness of wood. Diamonds awaken eyes to flash of firefly, gleam of wildflower, and patterns on leaves. Clubs open ears to the forest’s many howls, songs, footfalls, and tree rustles. Spades call us to taste and smell yummy fruit and bitter leaf. Shuffle the deck and deal a miniature ecosystem. What links the lives of the creatures in your hand? What connections – seen and unseen – do you have to these sylvan beings? Feel, look, listen, and smell: seek out the forest.
