Shaped by the Potter’s Wheel

Rupert Spira (March 13, 1960) This man looks familiar, although I’d never heard of him before yesterday. The title is inspired by his love of all things pottery. I suspect he’s approve of my use of the metaphor that we … Continue reading

Is This the Real Thing, or Just a Fantasy, Too?

I Could Have Sworn I’d Written about This Years Ago

David Bowie (January 8, 1947 – January 10, 2016) Is this one of my prime examples of the Mandela Effect? I even remember discussing the fact that David Bowie‘s birth time of 9:00 am should actually be 11:50 pm, as … Continue reading

All You Need is Love…

Mahatma Gandhi (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) I cannot think why I haven’t done Gandhi‘s birth chart until now. As always, the intention was there, but so many other things cropped up to distract my attention. However, I’m … Continue reading

Did You Just Ask, “Sutton Who?”

The Dig (2021) Sometimes, you just have to ask yourself: how come I know about this, even though it happened in 1939? We watched The Dig last night on Netflix. The sense of deja vu was extreme, at least for … Continue reading
