death card

I was away for a week, but I see the BBCT is still a hot topic.

The above quote sets the stage (so to speak) for your Death card. It certainly looks as though the black kitty might be making this speach as the white (siamese) kitty clutches at her breast and both look to the heavens. I think a theater is a good setting for the Death card. The 'world is but a stage and we are all just players' metaphore is apt. Each role we play ends, but the show goes on and on and on.

While this card's image does not paraphrase the Coleman-smith image of Death, there seem to be enough clues that will allow the reader get the message. (even in the small low resolution version).
