Our task, though monumental and historic, is quite simple. To assist in maintaining cohesion within the collective consciousness of the fellowship of humanity, TODAY WE ARE PATIENT. Patience.  That’s all.  It is simple.

The world and our country are poised in the edge. Astrological aspects are major. Politics in the US – even bigger. The global chess game for the control of the free world is looking Grim in 3D. But is it being played in 4D or 5D?

Do we Jump? Will we be pushed? How much will be revealed?

I have been absent from writing for the last month. Has it been lack of motivation? Possibly. Fear? Also. The holidays and lockdown? That too.

I do not know what I an going to say about our country tomorrow. We are the land of the free and the home of the brave. The the faction that is about take over does not support that. And I . . . cannot allow that.

So we must be patient to see what is going to happen. To see how we end up.

So I see a future. I imagine it the way I want it to be. That is our job.

I read an interesting passage on Facebook attributed to Kurt Vonnegut. It speaks very closely to the energy of my Happy Monday message.

Kurt Vonnegut:

“When I was 15, I spent a month working on an archeological dig. I was talking to one of the archeologists one day during our lunch break and he asked those kinds of “getting to know you” questions you ask young people: Do you play sports? What’s your favorite subject? And I told him, no I don’t play any sports. I do theater, I’m in choir, I play the violin and piano, I used to take art classes.

And he went WOW. That’s amazing! And I said, “Oh no, but I’m not any good at ANY of them.”

And he said something then that I will never forget and which absolutely blew my mind because no one had ever said anything like it to me before: “I don’t think being good at things is the point of doing them. I think you’ve got all these wonderful experiences with different skills, and that all teaches you things and makes you an interesting person, no matter how well you do them.”

And that honestly changed my life. Because I went from a failure, someone who hadn’t been talented enough at anything to excel, to someone who did things because I enjoyed them. I had been raised in such an achievement-oriented environment, so inundated with the myth of Talent, that I thought it was only worth doing things if you could “Win” at them.”

This reminds me of life growing up. My brother, who was a year and a half older that me, had his IQ tested early in elementary school. He was labeled as Gifted and allowed to take part is a special program called MGM – Mentally Gifted Minors.

I entered 1st grade and never received that test. I was not labeled as special or gifted. It really frosted me too. My Mom always would tell me that while he had a high IQ, I was blessed with a strong drive to succeed.

I do not know in what piece of Dr. Spock horseshit she found this definition, but I was always there gutting it out. And He seemed just to get things easily. It allowed him to be lazy. Mom would say that he was bored with classes and did not pay attention.

All I know is that I graduated 16th in my class – in the top 5%. When he graduated, he was sweating it out to the last minute where if he did not pass a test in one of his classes, he would not have received a diploma.

It might be typical sibling rivalry, but it always stayed with me. It was the choices that I made in my education. What classes I took. What electives I took. How hard I would work in one class vs another.

It’s the question of whether it is the destination or the journey that is the point of the trip. And how many places you stop along the way, and what you see while you are there.

Do you visit the giant ball of sting? And Boot Hill? Or do you just stop at the truck stops and muse upon the Chili of the week?

Or do you even make the trip?

I just read a very interesting and fascinating article.

The Great Silencing of America and the Hallmarks of Woke Totalitarianism

It makes the case that, well, we are fucked. Our beautiful, free society has been taken over by 1984-esque psychos. And we have welcomed it in blindly. It has taken over like a disease (think Gonorrhea rather than COVID19).

It is linked here, but i do not recommend reading it.

WOKE TOTALITARIANISM ARTICLE HERE IF YOU WANT

You can try if you would like. but it is not written in English. Or at least not in English you or anyone wants to understand. It’s over-the-top academic gobbledegook.

And I am an expert in readability. Part of my goal here on Astrogardens is readability. I will let you in on a little AG secret. When an article is easier to read, more people read it and understand it.

I use a secret tool that tells me how readable an article is. It is called the Flesch Kincaid Reading ease score. They look at all sorts of things like spelling, grammar, word length, sentence length. It send the piece through a special machine somewhat like the Star Belly Sneach machine from Dr. Seuss. In the, you get a score.

For my basic writing score, it generally comes in between 5th and 7th grade reading level. The Totalitarianism article came in at 20th grade.

You may ask, isn’t 5th-7th grade level a little simple? Might it almost be insulting to your readers? Think again. Or read again. Look at the article above and see if it catches your interest or whether you just skim past all of the ponderous sentences and big words. Even better, read it out loud. Read it in front of an audience. Your spouse. Your kids. Your Dog. Does it keep their interest? Then read Astrogardens. You will figure it out pretty quick.

You do not need long sentences and big words to make important points. You need to be articulate.
