    • There is still time for me to take up this career, and you may have something there!

      Once at an exhibit, instead of leaving cards for people to pick up, I made index cards with cryptic one line sayings (clipped from magazines, ads, that kind of thing) and my info on the back. Put them in a box with a sign saying to take one, don’t cheat and try more than once, to get a fortune. And having done that, you have heard from the Oracle (a clay statue I put next to the box). At the opening I heard people discussing these proto-snippets very seriously and when the exhibit was over, the cards were pretty much gone, and I had made about 200 of them.

      Goes to show you. People want to have some guidance. I’m willing to provide it. But – let the buyer beware!

      I am having fun with snippets right now, aren’t I?

      • You certainly are! I think you should keep an eye on those flour bags though. Sound like dodgy customers to me.
        People just love to have a harmless brush with the supernatural. Your cards were just that. If you’d charged they’d still have taken them.

      • I just hope I don’t run into the flour twins because they sound like they have way too many ideas and I question my ability to keep up.

        You are right about the fortunes, and especially if I had dressed the part, although I think the clay statue (one of my goddess lady ones, largish) persuaded some people.

      • They did that at our local library! Just a few words on a piece of paper, take one…it was great. I think they called it “fortune cookie without the cookie” or something like that. But what a great idea to do it at a show. (K)

      • I was tired of just handing out business cards and I thought this was fun for me, fun for the patrons, and maybe they’d keep the card longer than it took to get home! I would like to do this again, if the opportunity presented itself. It is amazing what power people will give you, if you seem authoritative! The Oracle speaks!
