Change is in the Air…

Change is in the Air…

Things do not change; we change. Henry David Thoreau

A change is coming my friends. I have had another opportunity thrown at me, and it’s a good one. One dream I have always had, besides music and writing, is to run a restaurant. I have a meeting today with a gentleman that is opening a restaurant in one of the nicest areas in Boise, Hyde Park in the Northend of Boise. In my lifetime I have run every facet of restaurants, from back of house to front of house. This is a great opportunity for me and I can only hope that I get it. I know that it is going to soak up every bit of my extra time, but I am ok with that. I will let you know how it goes. We went for a walk down to the river last night with Rosie and I took some more pics and thought I would share them with you.

The Empirical Path

The Empirical Path

Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
“Here’s one of my favorite quotes from American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson: “I hate quotations. Tell me what you think.” The current astrological omens suggest that this is an excellent message for you to heed. It’s crucial for you to know your own mind and speak your own thoughts. It’s smart to trust your own instincts and draw on your own hard-won epiphanies. For best results, don’t just be skeptical of the conventional wisdom; be cautious about giving too much credence to every source of sagacity and expertise. Try to define your own positions rather than relying on theories you’ve read about and opinions you’ve heard.”

This is what my Free-Will astrology said for the week. It is reiterating a basic truth that is taught by Buddha.  It goes like this, do not believe anything you read or hear just because another has said it or wrote it down. You must take all words, whether oral or written, digest them into your being and decide for yourself what you feel is empirically true. Do not follow a path in ignorance simply because another said it was so. You must understand these things and by your nature and determinism decide if they are true or not. To do other wise would be the blind following the blind and the one who leads in ignorance is the Sheppard and his flock is sure to fall off the same cliff of obliviousness.
