Woodsong Reading

Hi there!

I hope your week's been going well -- I've been captivated by the news from New Orleans and Biloxi. Haven't really been able to concentrate on anything else.

I used to live in New Orleans -- I remember the big fear about hurricanes wasn't the rain or the wind; it was that a storm would hit just east of the city. That way, the leading winds heading west would push water from Lake Pontchartrain up against the west back (where there was nowhere for the water to go), then southerly winds after the storm passed would push this pileup of water south against the levee. That's exactly what happened this time; it's a total worst-case scenario.

We spent the weekend watching hurricane coverage on the various cable channels. I think Fox News was the best, followed closely by MSNBC. CNN wasn't bad, but The Weather Channel was the absolute worst! Their hurricane "expert" was so clueless that it was almost criminal. At one point when it was plain the eye would pass to the east of New Orleans (see previous paragraph!), the "expert" proclaimed "Well, that's good news for New Orleans. This will mean only some brief flooding from rain." Was his name Dr. Steve Lyons? I'm always leary of people who insist on the "Dr" part -- usually indicates they're short on ability so they make up for it with credentials.

The story from these hurricane-stricken areas is going to get much, much worse. New Orleans may never recover. I'm still shocked when I look at the coverage. The website is going strong with pretty good local coverage.

I believe I skipped the reading a while back when the tsunami hit; it's probably appropriate to do the same thing here. I just wanted you to know I didn't forget about you. I'll be back again next week with a reading; I hope you're doing well and please send some good wishes down to the folks in Louisiana and Mississippi!

Hi there!

I hope your week's begun well -- it's hot and humid here in Houston. Actually, you could just cut and paste that weather description of Houston and use it over and over again most any day of the year.

Finally got around to reading the new Harry Potter the other day. I had been saving it for a time when I could read it all in one swoop. Finally got a day where I knew I was going to be sitting in airports all day. Perfect time for Harry Potter!

This one's my favorite so far. It sets you up perfectly for the final upcoming book -- you know the gloves are coming off and the battle between good and evil is finally going to be resolved. I had forgotten all about one of the major characters being killed off (I'm not giving anything away -- this had been announced long ago), so it was a surprise when it happened. I'm really looking forward to the final book!

Other than Harry, I've just finished reading all the books in the Horatio Hornblower series (C.S. Forester). I've been reading a lot of Napoleanic history recently, so this fit right in. Really enjoyed them. I haven't been able to get into the Pat O'Brien novels as much (Russel Crowe did a movie on "Master and Commander" not long ago); also saw where Dudley Pope has a similar series to Hornblower with his "Ramage" series. Grabbed his first one and will give it a try.

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:

Four of Cups (Reversed)

Four of Pentacles

This first card's an interesting one -- I look at the Four of Cups as suggesting discontent with current events. It also suggests a strong malaise or sense of ennui. What makes this card interesting is that it is reversed. Reverals usually suggest some type of distortion of the card's message. If we take a card that has a slightly negative connotation and distort it, we could end up with a more positive message! Rather than a card suggesting a slow down and discouragement, we have a message of action and interest.

Our second card helps us refine things. The Four of Pentacles is really a warning card -- it reminds us not to shut ourselves away from the outside world. For instance, if we concentrate only on those things around us, we may become discouraged (the Four of Cups). However, if we expand our interest to the larger set of opportunities presented by the world at large, we find many things than can interest us.

In fact, that's probably how we should look at this reading -- from the back forwards. The Four of Cups represents what might happen if we succumb to the lure of the Four of Pentacles. The reversal suggests we strive to NOT let this happen. If your immediate situation looks grim, then expand your options. Reconsider the parameters of your situation -- you don't have to accept what's presented to you. If you don't like your options, then see what you can do to change them. Once you actively take part in changing and selecting the options available to you, you concentrate more on active growth and less on introspective limitations.

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 !
