Weird Time....

Is some planet in retrograde? There's been a rash of strange and upsetting events in the lives of People I Know lately. These aren't nearly as traumatic as the hurricane-related ones that happened in the Southern states, but it's as if quantum ripples from that huge event are causing smaller traumas in the lives of people here in the Northwest.

For example, yesterday I spent several hours poking about Mt. Tabor, on the off chance that the thief who smashed a car window might have tossed the stolen purse into the bushes after emptying it of its contents. It's not really my story to tell, but the Person I Know was at the park about twenty minutes the night before to have a picnic and watch the sunset with her boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. They had a great time, until they arrived back at the car...

And there are other events, but again, they're not my stories. If one knows enough people, there will always be a friend going through a difficult time; that's just how Life is. So this apparent increase is probably well within statistical norms, but let's be safe out there, okay? Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best. And know that you are loved.
