You are Thoth, the most intellectual of the Egyptian gods. You savor the muses in all their forms, and you'd rather observe than take action. You are considered peerlessly just, and so you are often considered the arbiter of the gods.
Spiritual enlightenment, inner illumination, hidden power. Link between seen and unseen. Balance of positive and negative forces. Receptivity. Unseen guidance. A young woman sits on a throne holding a scroll labeled "Tora" meaning "law." On her breast is the sign of the meeting of heaven and earth, the Maltese cross. Her crown is the full orb supported by horns, the crown of the Mother Goddess Isis, who rules all things changeable, shown by the moon at her feet. Her power, upon which her throne rests, derives from the creative principle of duality, shown by the two pillars of light and darkness. To those who know and love her she dispenses the sweet fruit of the world itself, symbolized by the pomegranate.

Only and idiot tries to fight a war on two fronts and only a madman tried to fight one on three.Travel was good. The trip to Virginia to visit family was a lot of fun. It may be that we are not all complete lunatics, but it'd be a close thing. There will actually be more pictures, but these are the ones that turned out best with the digital camera. We took almost a roll of pictures (to finish off the roll of film) so we'll see how those turn out when we get them back. (The film goes out with tomorrow's mail.) The trip back was snowy, but quite beautiful. Luckily the roads were quite clear, so even though we had precipitation the entire way, we did not run into any difficulty. I learned that when taking pictures from the car, the clarity of the picture is dependent upon the cleanliness of the car windows. One of the pictures was taken with my window open. Nice picture, but quite cold.
