As I enjoyed my chicken green tamales breakfast, I heard the unusual thunder of a rain storm in Texas. But then again, it seems like these days everything is out of the ordinary. It reminds me of the Harmonic Convergence many Raza accredited to the 5th Sun legend in the mid 80’s and its relation to the Aztec prophecies.
It could be that we reach into the mysticism in our cultural heritage when things just make no sense. And no, I am not talking about the end of the world because after all Nostradamus prophesies extend into the XXII Century but maybe we are indeed in a special period of time when we are witnessing historic changes.
It’s actually not that complicated, just look for the signs; on Friday, October 7 for instance, Obama issued a “presidential policy directive” that lifts restrictions on Cuban cigar and rum imports as part of the president’s on-going plan to end the United States government Cuban blockade, Guantanamo is next….
Furthermore, on November 14 there will be an extra-bright moon otherwise known as “supermoon”, something that hasn’t happened since 1948 and will not happen again for another 18 years. Science claims it is an illusion created when Earth is between the sun and the moon and the moon orbits closest to our planet, but to us it is a sign…..
Another sign is the rise of the Chicago Cubs with the game that gave them the first World Series since 1908, rallying unified support from all sides unlike the presidential election that has radically divided public opinion in an unprecedented fashion.
Speaking of which, electing a woman as the United States president regardless of the actual ramifications, is definitely a wrinkle in history. After all it’s been over 100 years since activists and reformers won women’s suffrage right when in August 26, 1920 the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, declaring for the first time women deserve all the citizenship rights and responsibilities afforded to men.
I don’t know about you but on November 14 you’ll find me looking up trying to find the (wo)man in the moon clutching my Lotto ticket on my left hand
