Beltane

So, how was your pagan holiday? As I predicted, mine was most unexciting. No sign of the Queen of the May at the library. Oh well. Did get to see the cover of the new ish of Flytrap, featuring stories and poems and whatnot by people I know. Oh, and I'm in there too.

For those interested, this month features the Double Comet Show of 2004. Starts with Comet C/2001 Q4 (NEAT) around May 5th and continues with Comet C/2002 T7 (LINEAR) a couple weeks later. Comets are supposed to be harbingers, portents, signs of great change and great events.

Hmm. Think I can use them to invoke mailbox voodoo?

Or would that be overkill?

Reading: Currently Ben Bova's nonfiction Faint Echoes, Distant Stars: The Science and Politics of Finding Life Beyond Earth. More science than politics at this point, but that's ok. Also recently Tau Zero, the hard SF classic.
