WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT: It seems like every day we learn something new about the universe, with incredible pictures of distant stars, strange nebulae, or colliding galaxies that dazzle astronomers.

I was recently able to speak with her about this newly published epic poem, as well as inquire about her inspiration and her thoughts about cosmology...
"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that the Aquarian deck I remember had been purchased at some funky Georgetown shop that reeked of Patchouli...
Editor's Note: I discovered the most amazing thing a couple of months ago. The Huffington Post has a blog by a political Tarot reader! I wanted to find out more, so I contacted Tarot Politico, asking for an interview. She graciously accepted.

Organic is an important ingredient in my son's life. life. Born with Down sydrome, he is an extra sensitive digestive system.
