divination, anyone?

"No, Solomon, it was a good dream. But the game wasn't over."

"It never is," Solomon said. "So let's go to work."

Today's Buffett Oracle is as follows: 140. Once you see that no one really wins, then the magic begins.

My random Chaos Working for the day is "Today or tomorrow, find a way to meet someone new. Learn something interesting about that person, believing that there is no such thing as a boring person."

And I'm thinking about a baseball game.

I think that today's agenda is obvious to me.

I would really like to add in another oracle. I'm on the lookout for one to put in. Anyone got ideas of where to find one, or perhaps an oracle I can create on my own? I have a runic one in the works, but it's proving more difficult than I'd hoped.

Voyage to the Planet Eris

I looked up from the hammock and saw the crescent of the waxing moon still very visible in the bright blue sky overhead. Watching the moon above me, I had a sudden sense of my place amid the mysterious inner workings of the universal clock. As I rocked in my hammock, the earth was spinning like a giant gyroscope as it orbited the sun. Out there beyond the blue, the distant invisible planets and the Milky Way moved with us.

It never seemed so grand and mysterious in a classroom. Maybe teachers ought to approach astronomy from a hammock on a deserted beach as well as from the lenses of giant telescopes. The earlier in life we know we are part of something magical and mysterious, the better off we are.

Eris' mother now has her own heavenly body. I can't wait until Eris herself does. I'd totally lead *that* expedition. . .

You know, not to insinuate that Eris' body isn't already heavenly. Because, like, it totally is.

She's a hottie.
