Scorpio for this week:
It’s unlikely that you or I or anyone we know will become famous enough to earn a mention in the historical records of the future. The odds are probably 10 million to 1. But if you do manage to make such a prominent name for yourself that our descendants will be able to read about your exploits and contributions, it could very well be because of events you set in motion during the next six weeks. The possibility that you will make a mark on eternity is as great as it has ever been.
Mmmmmmm, motions….let’s see, calendar discussion with my friend and his wife, during my captivity at LeJeune. My Zoomie gets here for a whole week of fun and excitement…..not sure what else, but there will definitely be marks. *eg*
“I’ve been practicing radical authenticity lately,” my friend Brandon told me. “I’m revealing the blunt truth about unmentionable subjects to everyone I know. It’s been pretty hellish—no one likes having the social masks stripped away—but it’s been ultimately rewarding.”
“I admire your boldness in naming the currents flowing beneath the surface,” I replied, “but I’m curious as to why you imply they’re all negative. To practice radical authenticity, shouldn’t you also express the raw truth about what’s right, good, and beautiful? Shouldn’t you unleash the praise and gratitude that normally go unspoken?”
Brandon sneered. He thought my version of radical authenticity was wimpy. I hope you don’t. As a budding lover of life, you have a mandate to be honest in both ways.
The boy is catching up….Well done!
