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.
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.
