PREVIOUS THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY|
November 1st to 3rd
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 1
Life on Neptune
There is no life on Neptune... as far as we know. We cannot be completely sure of this. We can though, be sure of something. If intelligent beings do exist on that planet, they won't see diamonds as anything special. No matter how rare and precious those gems may be to us, they will just be boring old raindrops to the Neptunians. Perhaps, even now, they are looking at Earth in awe and amazement. "Guess what," they are saying to one another. "Down on that distant blue planet with the single moon, it rains pure, clear WATER. Those human beings just don't know lucky they are."
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 2
At the start of the year, I decided not to take a holiday from my column this year. I felt that wherever I went and whatever I did, I could take the horoscopes with me. Recently though, I have been working on a very big project for 2001 as well as the daily and weekly forecasts. It has dawned on me that I may not be superhuman after all - and I probably need a short rest. I am delighted to announce that one of the astrologers whose judgement I respect most in the world, has agreed to stand in for me next week. I shall introduce him to you tomorrow.
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 3
Introducing Bernard Fitzwalter
Twenty years ago, when I first started studying the art of reading the sky, I attended many lectures and classes. In the process, I was lucky enough to encounter some of the greatest living experts. I have vivid memories of feeling like a sponge as I sat in front of one particular speaker, soaking up his every word of explanation. Ever since, I have held the work of Bernard Fitzwalter in high regard. I'm delighted to announce that he has agreed to sit in for me here, from Monday to Friday next week while I take my annual holiday. I think you're in for a real treat.
