A generation ago in the Arctic Quebec community of Kangiqsualujjuag a government officer was explaining the virtues of hard work and efficiency to a rather polite Inuit audience. During his talk the enthusiastic official used the expression “time is money” and the interpreter, confused but compliant, translated this gem of capitalistic wisdom as “a watch costs a lot!” Inuktitut indeed has no word for time, not, at least, in the abstract, regimented sense commonly understood in Western industrial society.

And stories, whether mythical or historical, timeless or temporal, never exist in isolation. They are linked to other stories, forming a timeless or temporal web.

We Spiritualists, or Spiritists—we call ourselves both, or either—never ask anybody to believe us. If they do, well and good. If not, all right. Our attitude simply is that facts are facts. There they are; believe them or not as you like. As I said the other night, in conversation with Aristotle and John Bunyan and George Washington and a few others, why should anybody believe us?

OK which one are ya?? I can't decide if the bulb needs to be changed!
Ah, well, I'm on a cusp.

I can't decide if the lightbulb needs to be changed, but once I DO decide, I clean the socket, polish the bulb, install it, and get an engineer to check the work ;-D

My husband is a Leo, and that punchline is RIGHT on the money :)

Yeah, I'm a disorganized perfectionist. I want everything in it's place, but am too disorganized to decide WHERE it should go, lol. Add to that a Moon in Scorpio, and Aquarius rising, and I'm a mess!

Sexuality

English Canadians: Puritanism touched by orgy./ French Canadians: orgy tainted by Puritanism.

To science, not even the bark of a tree or a drop of pond water is dull or a handful of dirt banal. They all arouse awe and wonder.

Now it happens that inconsistencies and puzzles in science are like oxygen to my blood! My entire philosophy of science is predicated on the motto that anomalies are gateways to discovery.

Retirement

I went home, discussed it with the boys, put them to bed. I walked until midnight in the storm, then I went home and took a sauna for an hour and a half. It was all clear. I listened to my heart and saw if there were any signs of my destiny in the sky, and there were none—there were just snowflakes.

The word Savage was a handy word for whites to use against the natives. Yet it was the whites that stole the lands and forced their religion on the natives.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

Religion

The beliefs of savages are a veritable chaos. Not only do they vary from one place to another so that, for instance, along the shores of British Columbia scores of different religious systems can be found over a distance of a few hundred miles, but within the same tribe even various individuals will give widely divergent views on religious subjects. Within the mind of the same native even the most varied and contradictory opinions live together. It seems extremely probable that this diversity in space is paralleled by a similar diversity in time.
