Everests looming up ahead

Today's Astrocenter horoscope said:
If this month were a mountain, today is the day you would plant your flag on its summit. But before you go back down into the valley, it might be wise to take a look at the path you took to get there, and ahead to your future, especially since you may be a little depressed about not reaching even higher peaks. Not everyone can climb Mount Everest. Perhaps you are in training for an even higher climb to the top!
Is there any truth to it?
  • There's some truth, but more about the "little depressed" part.
  • I definitely feel like I'm in training. Most of the time. Like just about everyone else.
  • Today's summit feels like a minor mountain pass at most. But there are a few hours left to climb higher, right?
  • I'm definitely not in flag planting mood. What flag?
  • Should I worry about lack of oxygen with the peaks looming up ahead?

I am another

Je suis un autre
– Arthur Rimbaud

er, one with
cruel blue eyes, with
cool hardness. “Who are you?” – I could
not tell at that mo-
ment. Anoth-
er had

Early, early morning

Late night out with my son who just came back from a year in Malaysia and Singapore.

It's great to have him back (or at least nearer).

So many things to talk about. It's like he left yesterday and we resumed yesterday's talk.

Shamanism in Hinduism, the God greeted in the German 'Grüß Gott' as well as 'Namaste'.

Sartre's grasp of Man's contemporary loneliness, but without a spiritual, universal, historical or future perspective.

And zillions of other things we touched on.

No posts in about two weeks ... no time, never the right mood.

But oh did time fly by!

On heavy, heavily plied but swift wings, with lots of upheavals and downheavals.

Much too fast to grasp.

To be mostly deleted for soothing numbness.

And that's the statement for today and the past weeks.
