Cranky Large Medium reading, 23 September

Go away.

When will you go? Now is just a little too late for my preferences. But life is full of little disappointments, isn't it? Such as your appearance at my retreat. And, by the look on your face, my appearance to you. Well, then, let's just cut these disappointments to a minimum. You turn around and head back downhill, and we'll both be satisfied, no? No? Well, hang it all, what on earth is your problem, then? Oh, I see. You came for something, and you won't go without it. I hate to break it to you, but the mining rights for this pile of rocks is worthless. Not the rocks? Well, then, what do you want -- as if a medium couldn't glean immediately? You want a reading. And if you get one, you will go happily? Well, buckle on that grin, here you are:
You are not entirely an idiot -- you can quickly learn to copy the actions of others. Of course, you lack originality, but, in the case of someone like you, an original thought would be a very dangerous thing. At least, therefore, you are prudent and cautious. You enjoy being the center of attention, and, fortunately, you do not complain when you're not.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But then, what do we care? Happiness is relative. Besides, in a few minutes, you'll be on your way down the path, and that puts you ahead of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, found the ends of all their paths: Azai Hisamasa, John Rogers, James Van Fleet, Herman Boerhaave, Jean Chacornac, Urbain Le Verrier, James W. Alexander, Pope Linus, Robert de Sablé, John Jewel, Richard Adolf Zsigmondy, Francesco Forgione, Snorri Sturluson, Robert Dodsley, Prosper Mérimée, Wilkie Collins, Pablo Neruda, Robert Bloch, Fujiko F. Fujio, Vincenzo Bellini, Billy Gilbert, Cliff Arquette, Chief Dan George, Bob Fosse, Mary Frann, Sam Barry, Lyman Bostock, Jerry Barber, Aurelio Rodríguez, John Ainsworth Horrocks, José Gervasio Artigas, William Marsh Rice, Sigmund Freud, Salvo D'Acquisto,
Etta Baker

and Ronnie Dawson.

Pack that action and take it on the road.
Happy birthday, anyway.
