Can you see Hotel Andino down there?

“In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.”     -J. Krishnamurti

Quito Ecuador – This past week Miguel, owner of Hotel Andino, sent an email to warn me to expect ‘something different’ for my one-night stay.   When I arrived, Miguel explained that they were full with an out-of-town group of business people, but there was one option.  He seemed hesitant, and I said that I loved surprises –“… Show me the space!”

We went into the main part of the house, and I wondered where in the world an extra room could be, and then we stepped toward a petite door located beneath the staircase.  …

Debunking the National Eclipse

Correcting eclipse fallacies and some good advice!

NATIONAL ECLIPSE BLOG

debunked (Eclipse photo by Luc Viatour / http://www.Lucnix.be)

(Need eclipse gear for August 21? Visit the NationalEclipse.com eclipse store.)

In our last post, Staying Safe on August 21, we called attention to the fact that the media sometimes inadvertently provides incorrect or dangerous information about how to safely view a solar eclipse. Needless to say, this is a disturbing pattern because so many people never think to verify or fact check what they read or hear in the news. Unfortunately, that blind faith can lead to irreparable eye damage on August 21. But the media, and people in general, also make other kinds of factual mistakes and false assumptions when it comes to the subject of solar eclipses. Some of these errors are the result of long-held beliefs; others are simply due to an innocent mistake that quickly spreads and propagates online. Although these mistakes don’t necessarily put anyone in danger, they do…

FBI Seize Smashed Hard Drives From Crooked Wasserman Schultz

Tragically we have an infiltrated Congress (in more ways than one):

Nwo Report

FBI agents have seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT aide.

According to two sources within the bureau, Pakistani-born Imran Awan, right-hand IT aide to the former DNC Chairwoman, had persistently tried to prevent the FBI from obtaining the hard drives.

Dailycaller.com reports: An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi…

A New Economic Vision, in 27 Words

With this I can agree:

The Baseline Scenario

By James Kwak

A couple of weeks ago I posted a 6,000-word essay laying out a new economic vision for the Democratic Party. It kind of vanished into the ether, although Stephen Metcalf was kind enough to say this:

So here it is, in 27 words:

All people need a few basic things:

  • An education
  • A job
  • A place to live
  • Health care
  • A decent retirement

Let’s make sure everyone has these things.

If you want more, there is always the long version.

New Moon in Cancer, June 23, 2017

Water, Earth, and great insights with the New Moon in early Cancer!

Libra Seeking Balance

What a difference a lunar cycle can make! We dive back into the deep waters again on this New Moon at 02° 47′ Cancer on 23 June 2017 07:31 PM PDT. Water and earth are clearly in charge on this lunation with three planets in signs that they rule: Moon in Cancer, Venus in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces.

The luminaries create a stellium in Cancer with Mercury, entwining the thought process with emotions. While this gives us the ability to articulate our feelings, it is important to be aware the bias is towards subjectivity. If we do our best to keep this in mind, we may avoid the blind spots created tripping us up big time down the line. The best workaround is to engage our emotional intelligence and tune into what our intuitive side has to say.

The other planet in Cancer is Mars, and his strength is…

Interiors of the Soul

Zeebra Designs & Destinations

Jama Ecuador – My creative mind immediately painted the room’s interior walls with vibrant colors.   In seconds, that easily-accessed area of my imagination organized what was inside, traveled to the market and returned with tossed-aside crates previously used for transporting fruits and vegetables.     In another direction, my mind found discarded boards from construction projects, which could be altered to make shelves.

Click, click, click  – My imagination zoomed with ideas.  It would almost work for a temporary studio…   But – wait… water.. .a sink… a bathroom.

“Perdon,” I asked with an awkward approach, “Do you have a bathroom?  Water?”
