Lunar Eclipse 12 December 2010

“Mercury the wise communicator and universal trickster turned retrograde….Mercury’s retro phase tends to bring unforeseen changes…”

I got up this morning at 2:30 am ET to view the eclipse and welcome the winter solstice. I was moved in the cold and windy night. Low-powered binoculars made it clear that I was looking at a sphere, not the familiar disk of white.

Earlier, as if on cue, a spark jumped from body to device and I spent the day today mending the electronics that were overcome by the power I unknowingly transferred.  A reminder, power flows invisibly and sometimes unexpectedly. My belief in omens is slight – I call myself pragmatic yet I take heed of the possibility that signs point out our paths if we’re observant.

Change is in the air – I have been living it, feeling it and transmitting it. Following my signs.


That’s my sister they’re talking about

Teachers inspire – and when they do it right, they inspire for a lifetime.

“Our reason for choosing Mrs. Rothman as a woman who we should all aspire to be, has nothing to do with the fact that she was our teacher, or that she’s often on big time TV shows. It’s simply because, she’s built her entire life on love and passion, and in return it has paid her back well.”

Our Cherry blooms first and every year I celebrate by photographing it. This year is no exception, but the composition is new.
