The Owl of Minerva Lands on Thanksgiving Day

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? 

remember Bush’s ‘drawer full of diamonds’?

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.


Snow Moon in Gemini comin’ Nov 24

 Moon Shining Across Lake

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

it’s understood

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.
