…i came across my friend’s blog – they write:

“Most people know their sun sign. Friends have told me they don’t believe in horoscopes because how can it be that every single person born in the same 30 day period be the same? They’re not! Knowing the positions of other celestial bodies at the time of birth tell you a lot more about your personality than just knowing your sun sign alone. And it comes down to the day, the minute, the second. Interested? Enter your birth info here. If you don’t know your birth time, just ask yo’ mama…”

when i was in korea, i went to a fairly well respected fortune teller near shinchon rail station. it cost me $200 – ridiculous, i know – but for some nagging reason, i believed, or tried to. if there is anything to be said, those fortune tellers are mythic in their knowledge of chinese characters. after asking me preliminary questions, he came to the most important; he wanted to know the exact date and time of my birth. when i told him that i didn’t know, and the circumstances as to why i didn’t know, he shook his head gravely, told me to give him a “best estimate”, and promptly gave me a discount. he started with the preamble that without knowing that information, his ability to “read” accurately would be impossible…

Zodiac

i guess i look in strange places for answers i only wish i had…

to then be denied even these simple answers, for the lack of answers themselves…
