This is the oldest form of astrology. It is the astrology of nations, groups, world events, geology and weather. Personal astrology wasn’t even thought of before the 4th century CE. Although astrol…
I’d like to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the women who bore children and raised them. Motherhood must be the most difficult job in the world and so many women bear it with love and joy. Kudos. I have ultimate respect and admiration for those women who, by choice, default, or “oops,” gave birth and stuck it out to love and protect their offspring.
I’m not a mother–by choice–and would really love it if people who know that about me would stop wishing me a happy Mother’s Day. I know it sounds bah-humbug. Maybe it is, but I still chaff at it. I take full responsibility for my reaction. It is my problem and not a judgement of the well-wishers. Something to work on overcoming with my NLP, I guess. But for now, it still rankles.

We may think that we think what we think.
But what we don’t know is that we are what we think.
And what we think is not what we think we are thinking.
My life has been so busy lately, trying to edit my first novel for print and work on the second one, that I have neglected Confetti Head and all my other blogs. I hang my head in shame.
This morning I awoke early and for some reason couldn’t bring myself to open my manuscript. I need a break. Well, that is after my writers’ group meeting this morning and tomorrow night. After that, I’m taking a short break from the world of Planet Arkhon and the Gods of Terra.
I have written so much, that my first thought was, “Well, I’ll just pull something I’ve written about before.” But no matter how many articles (those not intended for posting on my blogs) I opened, none felt right. It’s almost like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, “This porridge is too hot. This porridge is too cold . . . .” So there was nothing to be done but to write something new. But what? I found the story below in a lonely folder marked “unfinished.” I rescued it out of the bits and bites of cyber cobwebs and gave it some TLC with updates, edits, and new material. Continue reading
So Christmas is upon us yet again. Didn’t this just happen last year? This holiday is so polarized that I’m surprised there hasn’t been a march down Main Street proclaiming the right way to celebrate.
Oh, wait, there has been. Every year there is the put-Christ-back-in-Xmas campaign. These are the folk who don’t like and don’t understand the origin of Xmas.
The X is the Greek letter Chi, the first letter of the Greek word for Christ. The mas is the Old English word for mass. Xmas is a legitimate, religion-based word for this holiday. So, protestors? Stick a the candy cane of factual information in your mouth and shut-up about it. Continue reading
