Why thanks, I think! That screen cap captures Ennis in mid-kick, dispatching one of those bikers! I also put in images of Aguirre, OMTwist, Ennis' dad (of course), and the crow from the post divorce scene.

Re: The Brokeback Tarot Deck-The High Priestess

Here is the High Priestess (of the Tarot deck, not of BetterMost--that would be our friend Meryl), Ms. Annie Proulx, author of the story Brokeback Mountain, which first appeared in The New Yorker Magazine in the October 13, 1997, issue:



In addition to her portrait (taken by me at the October 2006 Literary Festival in Casper, Wyoming, there is a picture of the Mint Bar in Sheridan, Wyo, where she was first inspired to write the story, and two scenes from the story that I think are among her best: the Reunion and the Dozy Embrace. There is also a photo of Jack during the Lake Scene saying "I did once" and a photo of clouds, since her nature imagery is one of her hallmarks.

This card features the scene of Ennis' truck driving up to the Twist house in Lightning Flat. THere are also scenes of Ennis and Alma Jr. in the truck and of Ennis and Alma at the drive-in where Alma Jr. just starts to make her presence known by kicks, which Alma wants Ennis to feel. I also included a couple of pictures of the real-life truck taken in Estes Park, Colorado at the BBQ!!
