Have you ever seen reruns of the The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson Show – one of the most watched television shows of the 1960’s and 70’s. Carnac the Magnificent would make regular appearances as an Eastern Mystic who would be introduced to the audience as the “great seer, soothsayer and sage!” Carnac claimed the power to “divine” the answer to a question that was written on a card inside a sealed envelope. Often irreverent, usually inappropriate, but always humorous, the comedy came from an unexpected question to a seemingly straightforward answer!
I found this feather on a walk around Providence and then I remembered Carnac the Magnificent. The set up or design for this liitle birdie came together quite quickly. If only Douglas Adams had used Carnac to provide the answer to the question of Life, the Universe and Everything [it was 42!]. But, hmmmm, maybe he did. 42!
