Celestial Events on March 20th.

Couple of big things happening over the next 24 hours.

First, there is an asteriod that is going to eclipse a star — Occultation of Regulus..  Very rare event, unfortunately only those on the east coast in a narrow band (about 50 miles wide) will be able to see it.  But you can read about it and even watch a real-time video through:

And then tomorrow, March 20th,  is the equinox — equal day / night.  Also called “ostara” in german and eostre in old english; a common pagan practice to celebrate was dyeing eggs.  And the rabbit was a sacred symbol of fertility.  Hence the easter bunny altough this year it’s a month later.  A good source to learn about the equinox is:

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
