My dear dancing friends,

I hope all is well wherever you are on this beautiful planet. In California we are fighting wildfires as are a lot of other countries, including Algeria. Fortunately, my home is not near those fires, but we do have a lot of smoke from them. As always, I am trying to raise the vibrations by dancing through the hardships.  

Recently, Algeria has been suffering from wildfires. It breaks my heart to see both of my homes being destroyed by fires. If you are willing and able to donate to the cause send money here: 

DON’T FORGET!!! I will be holding a lecture on The Misconceptions of Women in Colonial Postcards and Photography on Oct. 2nd at 1pm-2:30pm PDT. Email me for more details.

I am still available to be booked for a tarot card reading. Here is a recent review:

“I have had several readings with Amel Tafsout. She is extremely gifted and can truly “read” what is happening in your life. Over and over, she has correctly predicted what might be in my future, even when I doubted the truth of what she spoke. Amel is the real thing. I am deeply appreciative of having been able to work with her”.
