That's a good one, Tom.  It made my day twice; the first time is when 
it starting snowing.  The trails on Moscow Mt. are nice, but they 
need some new snow.

As I've said many times, Christians avoid the divine feminine at 
their peril.  The Hindu Goddess Durga is no one you would want to 
ignore for too long.

Happy Solstice,

"Truth is the summit of being; justice is the application of it to 
human affairs."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Abstract truth has no value unless it incarnates in human beings who 
represent it, by proving their readiness to die for it."
  --Mohandas Gandhi

"Modern physics has taught us that the nature of any system cannot be 
discovered by dividing it into its component parts and studying each 
part by itself. . . .We must keep our attention fixed on the whole 
and on the interconnection between the parts. The same is true of our 
intellectual life. It is impossible to make a clear cut between 
science, religion, and art. The whole is never equal simply to the 
sum of its various parts." --Max Planck
