Star Births

     The change of work hours at my job, has me less enthusiastic about writing when I get home. It is funny that just one hour’s difference can completely alter one’s attitude and thought process, but that is what happened and why these intros are shorter and lacking, at least in my opinion, the verve and elan of previous posts. So just imagine what changes in our lives, personalities, fortunes etc. could have meant to us in our star chart, if we arrived on this earth one hour later, or one hour earlier..What if…?

     Have a safe and sound Sunday,


What a difference a day makes?


Star Births

Where the stars

are aligned

at the time

of our birth,

thus determines

our disposition

and fate.

But, I can’t help

but wonder,

who or what

I may be,

if I were born

a bit early,

or late.

    Ahh…poor Jamocha is out of whack! Totally understand it though—just like when we travel—-it takes a bit to get back into sync even if the time difference is only an hour. And I think you would probably still be you if you were born an hour either way—doubt that anything could take that away! Happy Sunday!! Catching up today!

    • Aw, you are so kind. It was just a thought about life in general and what determines our lot..I can tell you are catching up though and I’m glad you are back..Kemo Sabe.
