Vacation. The word sounded so foreign to her. It wasn’t something she had even thought about since she first got her job with Rider. Once she made up her mind she was going to get it done without pause and that had been the idea for the last few years.
She walked the streets of Illium, feeling a strange calm that only the colony could give. She decided to grab some food and think about what she would do next. She found a small little restuarant. A real hole…Continue

I hope it is safe to talk about these things, it's been a while. I used to work as an electrical drafter at NASA Glen. It was a 5 year contract and when it ran out, I tried to get an extension.

No white walls or coats there, small sliver of a dingy room behind rows of iron barn type doors. There was a strange place though, I don't think I was allowed to go in there. Pretty big space, had…Continue

Years ago I had an interest in all things mystical, of late African astrology. I thought it was maybe similar to today's horoscope so I was ready to match up Egyptian names to Roman names and call it a day. Now I read that African astrology was not star science alone. Then they showed a person 'consulting the bones" and I said wait a minute. Then they explained a system similar to Iching. How in the heck can you...........the key to this "science" is geomancy. I understand because geomancy…Continue
