Hello all. Sorry for the lack of content this week. Took Monday off to meet with my illustrator and parter in crime Matthew Brownlee to do some Jupitarian work. Between Monday and Tuesday, through the agency of Jupiter, we had contacted 16 different spirits and recorded their names and sigils. Much like the planetary sigils, these sigils appeared to Matt in a trance state and their form is directly related to their function, rather than being extracted from a kamea or rose.
Than, as often happens when there is some kind of major reality disturbance, something happens to shut me down for a few days. In this case it was food poisoning. I lost 9 pounds between Wednesday night and Thursday night. Gained five right back of course, but I am just now getting on my feet.
Sunday is over though and while tomorrow is a holiday (MLK day here in the states) I will be plugging away finishing the book and hopefully popping out a few blog posts.
In the mean time, if you want something fun to play with, go to moneychimp and play with the compound interest calculator. You can figure out all kinds of neat and occasionally depressing things. For instance, those of you with kids: if you pt $50 a month into an index fund for your kids every month from birth until retirement (a total of $39,000) , given an average interest rate of 8%, you will wind up with $1,197,016.76
How’s that for magic?
