Woodsong Reading

I hope your week's been going well -- things are pretty hectic here in the South. Houston's got about 250,000 Katrina folks in town -- most of them being folks who were able to escape New Orleans before the storm although the news mainly covers the 15,000 evacuees in the Astrodome. All the stores are pretty jammed -- went to the grocery store the other day and it was packed like it was holiday-cooking time. Same thing at the mall -- clothes stores, electronics, furniture (my sister sells furniture -- she sold as much in one day last week as she normally does in a month), real estate (my son's a realtor -- he's been doing volunteer work at the shelters trying to help folks find apartments and homes), house supplies, etc.

We can get email into our family in Baton Rouge, but still can't get through on the phone. I hear Baton Rouge has grown by about 350,000 people -- more than double their pre-Katrina population!

Back in the early 1900's, Galveston was the leading city in Texas. Center of culture, architecture, commerce, etc. A hurricane pretty much wiped out the city ("Isaac's Storm"). The city rebuilt, but it took long enough to recover (plus many folks didn't want to live there anymore) that it lost it's prominence as the number one town in Texas. It's now a sleepy little beach town while Houston has grown into the commercial monster.

I wonder if the same thing will happen with Baton Rouge and New Orleans? It will take time to rebuild New Orleans -- in the meantime, commerce must continue. Baton Rouge is a deep water Mississippi river port (meaning it can handle the large ocean-going ships and tankers) and it may handle much of the work previously done in New Orleans. New Orleans folks are buying homes and enrolling their kids in B.R. schools -- putting down roots. Plus, I wonder how many people will want to go back to New Orleans? Could be that Baton Rouge (now the largest city in Louisiana) may supercede New Orleans as the state's main city.

Baton Rouge trivia: The dollar sign ($) was first devised and used in Baton Rouge! I believe it was a Spanish clerk who came up with it.

How about some quick words from my sponsors, then on to the reading.

We'll again pull two cards -- the first suggests something we should focus on for the week. The second suggests things we might consider in order to fully benefit from the attributes of the first card.

The cards are:

Page of Cups (Reversed)

Ten of Pentacles

The Page of Cups suggests the beginnings of an emotional attachment. It's not yet a committment, but it is an earnest interest. Some of these develop into greater emotional concerns -- perhaps ones that can provide a base of good feelings for the remainder of your life. Some don't go that far -- and some don't really go anywhere at all! Still, you've got to start somewhere -- and just because most won't develop doesn't mean you should avoid them. In fact, if you don't invest some time in these initial emotional considerations, they'll never have an opportunity to grow.

Our second card is the Ten of Pentacles. Ten's suggest the logical culmination of the aspects of a suit. Since Pentacles refer to financial and physical matters, this Ten suggests the achievement and enjoyment of financial or physical well-being. It doesn't really suggest wild spending sprees; it more suggests the freedom of stress from having to worry about these types of matters.

I was watching an episode of Gene Simmon's Rock School the other day (I'm not only a sucker for reality TV, I'm really a sucker for musical reality TV!). He was participating in a debate with the students of the school (subject: Rock and Roll has no place in modern society). He had suggested that rock music was basically today's folk music; he also said it was a commercially viable product and that he had earned quite a bit of money in rock music. One of the student's replied "Yes, but money isn't everything."

Not to debate whether this statement is trite nonsense or deep wisdom -- but you might go one step further and ask "If it's not everything, then what missing pieces do I need to add?"

I think this two card spread suggests an answer. If we want to enjoy financial well-being, then we have to have emotional assets to rely on. If we don't have emotional attachments, then financial or physical well-being is rather hollow. If we have developed emotional matters, then we can most enjoy them in the reduced stress environment of physical well-being.

So -- if you have great goals in life, it's okay to have money or health goals. But, be sure you don't ignore your heart as you progress along your journey!

And that's about it this time! I hope things go well for you this week and look forward to talking to you again next week. As always, if you're interested in a private reading, please try my sponsors above or my list of readers at . I also welcome your comments at !
