For the past five years or so I’ve been curating a deck of 54 cards that I gift to individuals I come across in the world. Friends, family, and strangers. Each card has a different message / reminder intended to uplift, inspire, and/or awaken the human spirit. They embody the creative impulse that gave rise to the four different art installations, and collectively convey the essence at the heart of Inspiration Campaign and Verto Publishing.

To the right is the current collection of cards in the deck.

They reflect what I call The New Human Story.
The core beliefs about who, what, and why we are.
The human psyche de-facto ‘operating system’.
As individuals. As humanity.

What’s important?
What’s meaningful?
What’s free will and how does it relate to fate and destiny?
What’s it mean that everything is energy?
What’s it mean to be Spirit-as-a-Soul-in-a-Body-as-a-Character?What on Earth are we, indeed, doing here?!

To explore / call attention to the importance of beliefs, I recently completed a book manuscript and am in the process of finding an agent / publisher to bring it into the world. To the right is the working graphic of the cover.

Also, below is the Human Story Survey from the book’s Appendix. I’d love it if you’d take a moment to fill it out as part of the exploration around our beliefs / our Human Story. Where are we in the spectrum of our options?

To learn more or share any thoughts, please contact me anytime. And if you’d like your own deck of the cards to be inspired / empowered by (or to gift away), you can get ‘em in the store.
