FROG: I built up my FROG piece by piece with each now analog, arriving at the final version with the third analog. Foolishness, armed to the teeth, overpowers Wisdom in the short run, but it sows its own seeds of destruction. Wisdom may be downtrodden in the short term, but its legacy will have lasting power. The foolishness of the Bush administration has done great harm to this nation and to the world, but its legacy will not be favorable. It is time to start talking about the Bush administration in terms of its legacy and prepare ourselves for a new wisdom to be born of a new administration.
Also, it is always important, when doing a reading, to realize that although the wisdom we impart (or at least, try to impart) may seem to “fall on deaf” ears, it is a seed that may just need time to grow. I know that sometimes I take the short-term view of the effects of people’s mistakes and bemoan those effects. But deep down, I know that in the long term, and in the grand scheme of things, acts of wisdom will be what really count. I just need to keep that in mind more.
