Jupiter rules

Go outside at five in the morning and look straight up. Jupiter dominates the sky. Below it, like an omen, is winter's iconic constellation, Orion. Morning now will be evening soon enough.

Sunday thoughts: the Republicans, or at least the extremists among them, will try and steal the election. They've already begun. And they may well succeed. Some ugliness during election day, including violence, would not surprise me. Citizen civility is a relic of the past.

I really don't want to hang around to see the worst of Nature's logical response to human greed. Damn I'm glad I'm old. Hope I'm old enough to pass naturally and miss it.
