Follow The Hand...

Well folks,

I've learned quite a bit tonight, and from the oddest source...
MY OWN BLOG.
Seems I was born in the (Chinese zodiacal) year of the Ram.
Makes sense to me, having been born an Aries... but I understand it doesn't always work out that way-- in fact the chances are inly 1 in 12 (and when we multiply 12 signs by twelve Houses, the odds read more like 144%...)

Another thing I learned by "following the hand"-- i.e. clicking on a phrase when the mitten icon shows (versus the arrow icon)-- is that if your interest is, say, the Mediaeval Babes, and it is linked (underlined) involuntarily, click on it and it will list others on the blogger that have a similar listing in their profiles.

I understand this may be eye-rolling elementary for the majority of you hackers out there; for me it could be a gods-send, a way to connect w/ other like-minded Folk and, minimally, a way to discover who else may be typing similar related topics I may be curious to browse.

Mayhap, yes, even to build a larger following:)

's what it's about, non?

Non, mais it'd still be cool, because it would mean more of those folk who DO share common interests would be (at least semi-) interested in your take on it all.

All that, and that I am an Aries (that much I knew:)) born in my very own year!!!( That is news to me). And that is one of those topics whereupon, with further research, I'll be able to demonstrate to you faithful followers how Magic IS such an integral part of my being.

For the night, though, I'm gonna log off and see if anymore Metallica fans are as beautiful as Rosie...

More Soon, Folks

and Thanks to Mannanan and Ayla the Fire Goddess for the knowledge...

Hi Cygnus.. what a cool name and you're a fellow Aries too? Thanks for your comment. And yes Ayla is my archetype/hero and I love the Earth's Children series.. it's my favorite set of books of all time. Takes me back to the time I think I truly belong in.. except I was born about 25k years too late to experience it! Well maybe next lifetime I can go back..

Cheers and happy (upcoming) solstice to ya..

P.S. have you seen Jupiter and Venus these last few days in the night sky? Absolutely gorgeous..

P.S. Here's a painting of "you" that I did.

It's called "Cygnus in the Ocean of Bliss".

Always something new on the horizon...so much to learn, so little time (on this plane, at least!)

Keep up the good work...
