No people are uninteresting.
Their fate is like the chronicle of planets.
Nothing in them is not particular,
and planet is dissimilar from planet.
And if a man live in obscurity
making his friends in that obscurity
obscurity is not uninteresting.
To each his world is private,
and in that world one excellent minute.
And in that world one tragic minute.
These are private.

From "People" by Yevgeny Yevtushenko...b.1933

Not feeling well, going offline for a while...

oh! Yevtushenko!
I had such a passion for the Russians when i was young.
The poetry especially, but also the novels. The big passions, dramas, against the bleak.

Many truths, as you say Jane.

If we could all see that, there would be no war, no violence, no 'bad them'...

I agree with your last one jane.

The Russians are interesting. It's amazing how national character develops.

And it just dawned on me!!!!
The comments are going in at the "wrong" time.
Could this be our Saturn/Neptune fracturing the linear?????

I think you're right about the Saturn-Neptune involvement in the messed up timestamps!! :-D

Btw... off topic... I am working on some personal stuff, and your node write-ups are proving very, very helpful. I want to thank you, once more, for them. I understand and appreciate all that went into manifesting these wonderful tools. My heart extends its gratitude to you.

It's so easy jane. I love the nodes as much as anything I can think of. I've been waiting many years to speak. It's my pleasure fully.

if only the "tragic minute" was minisculy short and the "excellent minute" a lifetime...

If only, dawning. I wonder if we could alter our perceptions at least to expand the excellent minutes.
At least they keep coming.

Speaking of time. I left my neighbourhood in February and entered a new one. I returned to the old hood today to find out my coffee shop now accepts debit! No more 'cash only..'
So I said, a lot changes in a month.

'A month?' The woman said. 'We have had debit for a year.'

I swear to you. They. did. not. have. debit. in. January! But I did not argue because I am embracing my Libra NN and I am enjoying Saturn/Neptune messing with my sense of time.

I think I'm going to start calling it Satune. Come to think of it, that's going to be my stage name.

That'll teach 'em! Stage names and real fantasy!

That is so weird, chrispito.

My keyboards are all lit up tonight. The Sequoia performance is the only answer.
