|A PERSONAL NOTE
There's something to be said for living near Dover, Delaware, in the agricultural heart of a small state that has been dubbed facetiously "slower lower Delaware". Here, "south of the canal" (the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, which halves the state in order to link the Chesapeake and Delaware bays), and also, as we've found out, below the Mason-Dixon Line
, a different pace is
offered than what I was used to in New York.
People, as is always said about the South (since that's technically where I now live), are more gracious, more polite, kinder. They are friendlier and hold the door for you even at the Mall or the WaWa. They walk across the store to show you where an item is, if they are salespeople. And they help you to carry out your groceries and pack them in your trunk, if they work in the supermarket. All this is in great contrast to the sullen sourness that I had remembered in New York, and in fact re-encountered during our visit up there during the holidays. The change of pace is like a change of vibe.
Carl and I drove down to the beach the other day, even though "no one uses the Delaware beaches in winter" (at least they say so) - but the truth is people are out walking their dogs with scarfs and gloves, or biking and walking, just to be near the seaside. So they do use the beach! And there are stores and traffic and all the perks of civilization down there. But, oh, the trip from Delaware's capital of Dover to Delaware's hopping beach destination of Rehoboth... bucolic is the word!
In the winter, the fields are dry and flat, but they stretch for miles, and you can see big sky country with beautiful sunsets. And in the summer the fields are tall and corn-full, and you feel surrounded by nature during these long rides. Delaware's marshes are also wildlife preserves, and its historic qu
aint little towns are cherished and well-preserved. On our recent drive, we saw an amazing sight: the sky was filled with migrating geese settling temporarily in the fields to eat the seeds and worms and whatever else geese eat. In driving down, it was like a documentary from Africa with masses of birds twirling and turning in concert, filling the big sky by the zillions; then, while driving back up, the snow geese, as they are called, all white at this time of year, covered miles and miles of ground as they rested in their journey, looking just like a blanket of snow.
This pace affects the psyche. It's calming; it's restorative. The very ruralness of the area that's disparaged by Wilmingtonians - those cosmopolitan hipsters - is what seniors such as ourselves and our neighbors
, coming from the bustling Northeast, are finding restful and healing. It's a back-to-nature thing, and it allows a certain type of space to form in the mind between the agitated torrent of thoughts that make up our days. Here we have the night sky, the vistas, some wildlife, and the joy of nature. We have peace.
I couldn't wait to get back from New York. This is home now.
With blessings and always, with Smiles,

Movie Review: "Life of Pi", (Fox2000 Pictures), Directed by Ang Lee, based on a novel by Yann Martel, starring Suraj Sharma

This wonderful movie deserves its Oscar nomination. Seen especially in 3-D, the visuals are remarkable in their beauty, sweep and color. It's been said, truly, that nothing like this has as yet been seen on the screen, and for these reasons more than the plot, I did enjoy the film.
Life of Pi presents a young Indian man whose family business is zoo-keeping. So from the earliest age, he becomes comfortable with a menagerie of large and small animals, some predatory, and his father makes sure to teach him strong lessons about caution. During the boy's adolescence, he becomes curious about religions other than Hinduism, going so far as to explore Christianity and Islam deeply. This innate spiritual pull will serve him well later.
The family undergoes setbacks and decides to relocate by sea, packing their entire menagerie of animals on-board a freighter. A calamitous storm ensues. Everyone has seen the movie poster showing the boy in a small boat with a Bengal tiger. Suffice it to say that his family as well as the boat's crew are cast into the sea and, for the most part, drowned, whereas he manages to scramble into a lifeboat along with, initially, four other animals: a chimpanzee, a hyena, a zebra, and the tiger. Chaos ensues, and eventually just he and the tiger are left in a very uneasy stalemate, with the tiger commandeering the lifeboat but unable to survive alone, and the boy resourcefully using its supplies to create a raft, and feed them both. At one point, the tables are turned, and the boy can allow the tiger to drown but rescues it, having established some empathy with this stunningly dangerous creature.
(At no point was the actor ever stuck in a boat with a real tiger - it was all created with computer graphics, and is as realistic as it gets... another Oscar-worthy achievement.)
Many adventures later, pitted against the sea and nature, they are rescued, and the story is told in flashback to a reporter. Here is where I had problems with the movie, because the story - unbelievable as it is to such people in the story as insurance agents - then gets totally revised, whereupon the animals are seen as people who scrambled for survival aboard the lifeboat. The viewer is left with ambiguity: which story was the truth? Ultimately, there is no message or resolution in this plot, but there is a beautiful sense of a soul being uplifted by nature during extremis. My recommendation, then, is to see the movie for its gorgeous cinematography but go without expectations of being told a satisfying story, for I feel that that is where you might be let down.

Teachings of The Brotherhood of Light Workers
By Judi Thomases
The following segment has been received, word for word through a psychic process known as channeling. It is an invited procedure. The teachings always serve to guide us through the journey of life. Compilations of many such messages are available in book, PDF and audio formats: Compilation of BoLW's Messages
THE IMPORTANCE OF LIFE'S DAILY GRIND
If you are questioning the purpose of daily events in your life, and meaningless repetitions of actions or necessities, thereby feeling dragged down and discouraged by monotonous or non-varietal experiences, know that these play an essential part in grounding the personality in its identity, for it is not the highs or unusual and exciting experiences - the events that would carry you over a conditioned response into something thrilling - nor is it the lows, those moments in which your spirit feels crushed and you cannot see the daylight of life's purpose, that make up the meat of the life experience.
If life were a series of exciting thrills and depressing lows, you would feel like a pinball or rollercoaster, an agitation that would not give you sufficient time to process the intermittent and entertaining moments, and in fact, people who cannot sustain neutral periods without acting out or feeling numb are those with mental disorders, and are labeled bipolar or even schizophrenic.
Take a moment, then, to appreciate the daily grind, the boring sameness, the loop that you seem to be waylaid in and never freed of, for that is the sustenance, the foundation, the continuing pattern in which an identity is built and sustained. Not peaks and valleys, but long periods of flat ground. It is from these long stretches that you have time to think your thoughts - thoughts which can be full of variety and interest; thoughts which can move you emotionally into highs and lows rather than events doing such; thoughts which are really the whole game and purpose of life.
In these periods of boring activity but space for the movement of thoughts, you are building and maintaining your identity in this life. You are laying the basis and gradually putting up the structure of who you are. It is from this structure that you will have the opportunity to evaluate the experiences and events, to contrast one against another, and chew upon them with thought, and thus bring yourself to wisdom. Here is where you will find the treasure of the lifetime.
Therefore, appreciate your moments of routine. Doing laundry. Driving on errands. Fiddling with the television. Walking the same route. Seeing the same people. Having the same conversations. Appreciate these as the sand, dirt and gravel of your life - not exciting but oh, so necessary.
It is a wisdom in itself to know how important the everyday seemingly trivial details are, for it is you who grow out of all of them. You who develop. You who base your individual characteristics against this ground, or background.

FEBRUARY 2013 ASTRO TIDBITS
For the world, February starts off with depleted energy (Mars conjunct Neptune), but soon brings inspiration and fun on the 7th (Venus sextile Uranus, trine Jupiter; Mercury conjunct Neptune). On the 10th, humanitarian progress butts heads with economic reality (New Moon in Aquarius square Node), but unusual opportunities in technology blossom through the 19th (Jupiter sextile Uranus). The 18th sees a slowdown and process of maturation (Saturn station retrograde in Scorpio). A lack of realism is problematic on the 21st (Sun conjunct Neptune). Plans and discussions will have to be readdressed on the 23rd, especially if they are vague or overblown (Mercury station retrograde in Pisces). The 25th indicates a tug-of-war between careful precision and extravagant expansion (Full Moon in Virgo square Jupiter). While idealism is the keynote by month's end (Venus conjunct Neptune), there is stability and positive changes regarding traditions (Pluto sextile Saturn).
The U.S. continues a long transformation of the American Dream (Solar Arc Pluto conjunct U.S. Neptune). Hollywood's image is affected through the purse (Solar Arc Ascendant conjunct U.S. Leo Node in H8), but the tendency for risk and excess is still present until the 9th (Uranus square U.S. Jupiter). February 3rd can bring a transportation accident or a marked emphasis on posturing (Mars in H3 conjunct U.S. progressed Descendant/Solar Arc Jupiter). The 6th-7th is fine for love (Mars trine U.S. Venus), and the 9th is highly energetic (Mars trine U.S. Jupiter), but the 13th indicates aggression (Mars conjunct U.S. progressed Sun). There will soon be extra efforts made to cooperate, even bend over backwards (progressed Moon opposite progressed Venus), but unclear or magical thinking can arise by the 19th (Sun/Neptune conjunct U.S. progressed Descendant in H3). Between the 16th-24th, there will be much discussion, probably about gun deaths and control, but not much calm (progressed Moon, ruler of U.S. H8, sesquiquadrate Uranus in H6, ruler of H3, and square U.S. Mercury, ruler of H8). The last third of the month provides a lot of freedom to innovate on the tech or humanitarian fronts (Jupiter conjunct U.S. progressed Uranus). On the 23rd, harsh words can erupt (Mercury station retrograde conjunct U.S. progressed Mercury, square U.S. Mars). The 24th sees a return to diplomacy and pleasantries (Venus conjunct U.S. Moon), and the month ends with a great deal of idealism (Neptune trine U.S. Venus).
President Obama begins the month pleasantly (Venus opposite his Mercury, trine his Moon) but by the 6th he is irritable (Mars square his Moon), and between the 9th - 13th there is tension, arm-twisting, and much anger (Mercury and Mars opposite his Pluto). The issue is undoubtedly the budget efforts and "fiscal cliff" yet to be resolved (Solar Arc Mercury conjunct his Mars/H8). In general, his tenure at this time shows a fruitful relationship with the country (Solar Arc Ascendant at 7 Aries trine U.S. Solar Arc Ascendant at 7 Leo), but his immediate experience by the 18th feels blocked, frustrating, and tiring (Saturn station retrograde square his Sun, conjunct his Solar Arc Mars). From the 17th-18th, he can take a much-needed fun break (Venus conjunct his Ascendant, sextile his progressed Moon), but on the 25th there is a pattern of bullying or being bullied (Full Moon conjunct Pluto in H7). He is weary and escapist by month's end (Neptune opposite his progressed Venus, quinqunx his progressed Sun; Neptune starts squaring his Moon, ruler of H6), and in need of a health check-up (progressed Midheaven into H12; Saturn square his Sun; hard Neptune aspects).
