As any readers on these groups probably know, I have been going
from one lunar phase to another, making predictions that never
I liken this to Sysyphus rolling the rock up the hill only to have it
roll down just before it reaches the top. The rock rolling up
the hill is like the moon waxing from new to full, and the rock
rolling down the hill is like the moon waning from full to new.
My story may also be similar to the folktale of The Boy Who
Cried Wolf, in Aesop’s Fables, where a boy keeps making
false reports of a wolf, so that after a while the villagers
ignore him, even though eventually the wolf does come.
The wolf (since it howls at the moon) I think can be
associated with full moon, whereas I associate Raven
with new (dark) moon, which is approaching.
Good night (3:21 a.m. here now),
