I have not been known to make little mistakes. When I do, they are so big it is impossible to miss them.
The predictions for the following year are usually taped in September. It is different this year, due to Kanashibushan's hospital stay. Eventually I asked Anita Perez to assist me. I worked up my usual overlook of 2014 in September, assuming I was starting in January 2014. To refresh your memory the predictions are for the United States of America. Here are my notes.
- She exists in no time, no space - yet she still exists. Stagnation, hunger and poverty. Timelessness, aimlessness - not knowing where to park your bones.
- Search for perfect balance of strength, failure in thoughts, determination, unreal dreams & fantasies; a slightly unethical or immoral triumph, failure at different things at different levels.
- Male energy, we will cease to think with the right head. You may have changed your time and go back to the present, which will change what you said before. Be careful - a single face has a thousand masks.
- Success can bring loneliness, perhaps you should sleep alone. Profits - the goat always reaches the top of the mountain. You have not learned the lessons of Saturn - a severe but fair judge. With surprise on your face, you can fall as quickly as you rose.
Imagine my surprise when I realized I was looking at the month of October......to the point of the Government Shutdown. Rather than explaining what the predictions said, try to decipher it yourself. It is ALL there!
Exasperate is the word of the month. Irritate intensely, infuriate, annoy. Provoke and antagonize.
Once again politics ruined many lives, we still have to absorb the Sequester and it appears the gap of rich and poor is widening with each stupid decision more people are being hurt. Since this crazy mess was delayed till January 15, 2014, I am hoping NOT to be RIGHT twice!
My friend Justin Wright was on a planned adventure. He wanted to accomplish the task of “PIEING” 1,000 faces in Washington,DC. Imagine his surprise when he approached the gates to the Zoo in Washington and the doors were locked. A picture worth a thousand words and he became my poster child for what was October 2013.

He did accomplish his goal of 1,000 pied faces, but I was worried about my friend, especially while Congress was in lock-down for a period and a woman, upon her surrender, was shot to death close to the White House.
The Shutdown was renamed Slowdown, some called it a COUP!
3 Storms in the Great Northwest (PNW) rattled nerves, destroyed property as they arrived way too soon in the season and again we wondered why we are not calling winds 75+mph hurricanes. I suppose the people living in the PNW would take heed much better than just calling it a nasty storm.
Hungary declared being homeless ILLEGAL. I suppose with the speed what appears a war on poor people we are not too far behind. During the Shutdown I watched a 3-part movie. It was called the ALDON. It was the story of a 5-Star and very famous hotel in Berlin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_AdlonI
I found my timing amazing since it showed me similarities with the present, inasmuch as the RICH/ELITE Patrons continued their festivities undisturbed while at the same time outside of the famous Hotel the rest of the world was experiencing bloodshed and hunger. It made me think how unattached, ruthless and uncaring politics can be.
Another series I accidentally ran into was called Wiesensee. It was about the DDR into the 1980's and the hardships and behavior of the people. I can understand how it came about that the European Block is very disturbed of the knowledge of present surveillances on some of their citizens.
PBS aired a series: Voices of the First People and told the story and the plight of John Trudell
Some may not agree with war... speaking from experience ….when soldiers return home the whole family is victimized and life is never as it was before. It effects spouses and especially the children to adjust to a parent no longer whole. Mentally or otherwise.
Driving across the Olympia Bridge.....which separates the Sound from Capitol Lake... I noticed a strip of land I had not seen in the Sound. When the flow of water changes it usually announces a major earthquake.
After the 2001 Nisqually Quake a local artist painted a mural on one of the damaged buildings and showed what the bridge looked like before it was destroyed. Eventually upon completion of the repairs of the building it was painted on, it was removed and it is for that reason I am unable to credit the artist. It is amazing what beauty can come out of a disaster. Not sure if anyone else took a picture. So it is with many things. We work and take joy in creating something, whether material or emotional and then someone else comes along and removes what is so dear to us. I am just ranting I guess, but tell me, how can a few people make decisions for the rest of us, misuse our trust to have elected them to represent us and all of a sudden end up in a power-struggle or better yet, a pissing contest, with no regards for people's well being and continued existence. When people look back on this in 40 years we must appear primitive and yes, crazy to behave in this fashion. And here is the point I get back to the bridge. Did I get sidetracked, or did I get sidetracked.
Speaking of Earthquake, we were very shook up when we saw the pictures of the 7.2 quake in the Philippines. Some of our friends were very affected, all we can do is hope for a quick recovery from the tragedy.
A 7.3 Earthquake hit Japan and worried many of us on the West Coast of USA about the radiation issues we are already experiencing from the last BIG ONE.
Family members were in Car accidents with VERY serious injuries, and my daughter and 4 of her children are misplaced by a house fire.
Don't forget to VOTE!!!!!!! Hopefully you will vote YES on I-522 in Washington State and we will have labels on our GMO food.
A meteorite was recovered from a lake in Russia, a man swam in a frozen lake, I wanted to equate this with our 16- day-shutdown- dilemma and then the newsman gave me an idea...wait for it...................... SHRINKAGE!
Love and Light,
PS. In order to show how crazy October was, here is a segment from Rachel Maddow Show. …. A must watch story from The Rachel Maddow Show
