Just Enough to be Dangerous

I love the expression “I know just enough to be dangerous” because it reflects a total honesty about oneself in the determination to know more about any particular subject. While such honesty invariably reveals a boldly naked look in the astrological mirror of the mind, the person who has attained such a responsibly frank observation

Tragedy in Miami on the Ides of March

This is a quick news blurb I can’t put off. My plate is full, but there’s just too much to ignore here. Several are dead in Miami at this hour as a pedestrian bridge installed less than a week ago–on Saturday–collapsed. At least eight vehicles have been crushed, at least five people are in the

Envisioning and Reflecting, and Somehow It All Comes Together

I sit here on the morning of what the media are calling the “first Super Blue Blood Moon Trifecta since 1866,” shaking my head a bit at the word they missed–“eclipse.” But then how many types of “first” can you say in tandem before that mouthful reaches the point of the absurd? Perhaps this is

And Baby Makes FIVE…

Some articles will say a lot in few words. This is one of those fairly rare ones just to send warm congratulations to new parents!

Mayhem and Murder in Manhattan

Every day, somewhere in the world, we see accidents, murders, arguments, skirmishes or outright war between people and their nations. That much doesn’t usually surprise any of us, I’m sure. But when an attack in New York City that has come from a green-card carrying foreign national who has been in the United States for

World Tapestry: From Mumbai 2008 to Las Vegas 2017

Mumbai, India Somewhere in the Sunday night blur of news on the October 1 Las Vegas attack, I heard a reporter make a one-time reference to the 2008 nights of terror in Mumbai. Perhaps the reference didn’t connect with others. For me, it stood out above all the rest even though I don’t even remember

Welcome to Jupiter in Scorpio!

UPDATE: Jupiter made ingress to Scorpio this week (on the 10th), and the words strike such a familiar chord for me. I hope you’ll find that to be true for you as well. Jupiter’s ingress for the USA took place on the 10th of October at 9:20:19 AM EDT (Washington, DC), the same day at
