My Inner TV Lover


Since I was a little girl in the sixties, I have always been drawn to the television. To me, it always seemed to be a temple of magic- a way to get to know people I ordinarily wouldn’t meet and to visit places that were beyond my family’s reach at that time.

As I grew older, I came to realize that certain TV shows were similar to the books I loved to read- portals into other worlds, a vivid, visual, visceral means of StoryTelling.

I made this card to honor this part of me who loves discovering new TV shows that make me laugh, make me think, make me cry, and connect me to fascinating ideas and ways of looking at the world.



Who are you?

I am the one who watches television and who is brought into new portals, new worlds.

I am the one who is entertained by the shows I watch, but I also learn so much about myself and the world around me.

I love being captivated by the STORIES I see.

What do you have to say to me today?

My message for you is this- Sometimes I blend with you. Sometimes I take over. I work with Addiction to shield you from anger and loneliness. I don’t want to hurt you, only to protect you and keep you entertained. Just let me know when I am taking over and I will step back.

  1. Thank you for sharing this Anne Marie! Your card is just beautiful- I love how you recreated the tv screen to look like a triptych. I also love how you framed what I often feel is a bit of a guilty pleasure or waste of time into something so affirming. And your words to yourself were so life-giving and positive. I love this SO much and I want to make one for myself. Quick question- did you purposely find the image of the girl (online?) or did you just have her in your collection?

    • Thanks for commenting, Jackie! I’m so glad this resonated with you. I found the image of the girl while looking through magazines one day and immediately recognized her as the part of me who loves TV, and felt led to make the card to honor her. I don’t remember which magazine but I think it was an older one. Not sure. You will find your own!
