Not the Hegel Society journal, Minerva…more the owl coming in for a landing on a rainy day in Georgia: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/456572/minervas_glen.html
and a poem of thanks to go with my best botanical rendering of an owl which I borrowed from one of my art gallery blogs: http://secretmoonart.blogspot.com
Astrologically, the asteroid Minerva’s keyphrase is this: ‘the desire to be accomplished.’
And we all like to be accomplished at something, don’t we?
Seems his drawers have been ransacked, but here’s a post from Jan 2007 concerning Bush’s SOTU address of this very l o n g year which is on the way out.
And yet time flees! All too soon it will be time for his nibs’ Jan 2008 speech which is sure to be groanworthiest of the groanworthies…assuming he’s still around town.
Here’s a smally post on the Full Moon of Nov 24, Moon 1Gem55, Sun 1Sag55:
The chart in relation to America has me feelin’ droopy so my post won’t have all the info you may want about the subject, but of course this Full Moon (being a lovely Snow Moon and all) will be oft’ revealed–your browser will have great difficulty missing it in various spots slathered over the ‘net for your perusal.
And you may wish to click above link to find Crystal Pomeroy’s ‘portal to the Snow Moon’ article, plus the chart for the Full Moon itself shining over the White House, 9:29:48 pm est, Icarus ascending.
Yet Moon stuff is cool even if you don’t do rituals and such.
And it’s quite poetic to read all the same, isn’t it? After all, the Moon was placed in our neighborhood to cast light in the evenings so that our paths may be lightened. Courteous!

And in honor of the season–and hopefully you’ll have a few root veggies roasting in a pan some chilly night–here’s ‘Limerick for Common Veggies’ which I published at http://judecowell.gather.com already…set the butter out:
The spicy little raddish
is not considered faddish
but take a bite
it’s always right
for lassie and for laddish.
The ordinary pea
exalted here by me
will do you good
by land or air or sea.
And then we have the leek
the vegetable you seek
snug in a stew
it’s tasty too
for lunch one day next week.
You know we love the beans
way down in New Orleans
with rice all brown
to toast the town
that knows what good food means.
Up North the spud is king
a broccoli-laden thing
with cheese or not
just serve it hot
and kudos soon will ring.
So steam your veggies hot
in saucepan or a pot
the joy they bring
is what I sing
and that says quite a lot.
