Wednesday’s Child

Wednesday’s child is full of woe. That’s what we’re told anyway. It reminds me a little of the 5 days in the Aztec calendar in which if a child was born, it was considered unlucky. Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy, eh?

From Wednesday on I’ll be posting an excerpt from Jean Desjardins, which should, barring some weird alignment of the planets, be available on November 29.

By the way, I was born on Thursday and have far to go.

    To be honest, I’m rather old school: the planets align and the sky falls.
