If You Believe



If you believe in astrology this is right on for my day.

My horoscope today via MSN says "Today's planetary energies bring opportunities to meet new and interesting people, dear Virgo. When it comes to relationships, you have developed a whole new strategy recently, and this will come into play today. One person in particular could open new doors for you and help you expand your social network. This, in turn, will lead to many changes in your life. It could all happen in the blink of an eye!"

Plans put in motion late last week are directly related to this tidbit.

I'm meeting a fellow blogger Paolo tonight. Although he is not new to my Internet world, he will be new to my real life world. From what I can tell, he is interesting. His artistic creations and endeavors inspire me. His philosophical side speaks to me. I am really looking forward to meeting him. Sharing, laughing, getting to know one another in person.

Here is to planetary energies bringing new opportunities my way. Hopefully a new friend too.

************************************************************************************* Anyone else see the lunar eclipse this morning?

I felt small.

Yet I felt connected to the universe at the same time.

Reminded me we live in space.

It is easy to forget.

Our world is but a piece of the whole.

And speaking of being a part of the whole, it was today in 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke the words of his "I Have a Dream" speech in front of more than 250,000.

Other noteworthy events happening this day include


  • in 1884 the first known photograph of a tornado was captured
  • in 1898 Caleb Bradham renamed his carbonated soft drink Pepsi-Cola
  • in 1907 James E. Casey founded UPS in Seattle, Washington
  • in 1996 Prince Charles and Princess Di divorce

Want to know more about what happened on this day throughout history, who was born or died on today's date? Go here. I think you can look up any day desired for that matter. If so, I see a birthday card insert idea...

Peace and Love Peeps.

Okay, so I'm just going to say be safe tonight - meeting strangers makes me feel scared for you. Go to a public place. =)

I didn't get up til 4:45 this morning for my run, so I missed everything, but the sky was really clear, and all the constellations were easy to see. Bummer I missed out on the eclipse, it was just too early for me to have to get up, and too late last night for me to stay up.

Good luck with the horoscope stuff, and have a great time tonight!

OOhhh I think meeting people you've read about is so fun. One day girlie you and I shall meet and it will be *magic* [said like Meg Ryan in the car in Sleepless in Seattle]

You can count on that.

Have a good time and enjoy yourself!

I didn't get to see the eclipse. I got up, but it was not visible here on my side of the world. Pisser.

Mo said...

Um yea. I am a dork. Chicken and pollo are the same thing.

I meant to say fajita fiesta pollo or something like that.

And yes Kim. It will be magic. The heavens will sing for us. We will bask in the glow. Seriously. It is going to happen one of these days. Hopefully sooner than later.
