Last night Busted posed some questions on the Paul Newman blog in regards to Venus Neptune type stuff. That is Judge Roy Bean was in love with Lillie Langtry who he’d never met. I thought the questions were interesting but responded saying I could not get my mind on it because the soldier and I had spent the day “making plans for the apocalypse”.
Del asked if I knew something others did not and I said, no. “I just like to talk about this stuff and so does he.” And when I initiated the conversation it went like this:
“I want to talk about this. You know all kinds of stuff and so do I. You have training, profound knowledge of history, years and years of experience… any number of ways of figuring out what is going on. I have my way of knowing things and I want to put all these resources together (8th house!) and figure this out…”
I went on to explain, “Because I can’t talk about this stuff. People don’t want to hear it. It’s negative and when you speak up you become repulsive. It’s not welcome conversation, you become someone to avoid. People decide you’re crazy rather than look at this stuff squarely and I want you to talk to me because I just can’t stand acting like nothing is happening when it is so obvious something is. It’s like having a friend with a man who beats her and we are all supposed to act like this doesn’t happen. I hate that…”
So we spent the day going over our various impressions and comparing notes. It was very satisfying so here’s a chance for you to do the same.
What do you think will happen in the next few years? Be specific!! And if you want to use a fake name… disassociate yourself from your comments, please do. I really want to know what people are thinking out there.
