Gone on Vacation

Kira and I will be on that beach at the Bay of Fundy in a couple of days. Nova Scotia, here we come.

In response to Tom's wondering about the speedlinks while I'm on vacation -- sorry, I'm taking a break. I'll be posting from time to time while I'm gone, including photos. Posting will be lite and infrequent for the next 9 days or so, but will get back to the usual rhythm on or around September 11.

There might be more posts today while I am waiting in airports.

Here is my Daily Om horoscope for today -- seems fitting:

Take A Global Perspective
Taurus Daily Horoscope
September 2, 2006

You may notice that your awareness of the world around you may take on a global perspective today, which could make you feel as if your consciousness is expanding. It might be that you realize that you can make a contribution to the world by thinking more deeply about the issues that affect you. Perhaps you could use this heightened sense of awareness to learn more about an issue that is meaningful for you. A good way to do this today can be to find a cause you believe in and study more about it. That cause might be something such as current environmental or social issues. After becoming familiar with the issue, you may even wish to get involved by volunteering to help at a local or national organization. You might find that this helps you expand your knowledge about the world and maybe even the role you feel you play in it.

Learning more about the issues that affect our lives increases our understanding of the world around us. Sometimes we may feel that there is too much information and could perhaps even feel inundated by it. Making the effort to engage ourselves and focus on an issue that means something to us, however, allows us to develop and change our perspective. In doing so, you will open yourself up to a greater part of the world, be able to think more deeply about what affects you, and be motivated to take action today.
