Mystic crystal revelations...
It's January 21, the first day this year that the Sun is in the sign of Aquarius, ruled by Uranus (stop snickering), the bringer of all that's wacky, unexpected, humanitarian, innovative, off-kilter, rebellious, enigmatic, and quixotic. Aquarians are a misfit lot of visionaries, vagrants, vagabonds and wunderkinds. To even tap the surface of those who are Aquarians (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,Oprah Winfrey, and Emo Philips. Now that's variety!)is to astonish you with the aurora borealis of characters who've woven themselves into the tapestry of the ages as creators, geniuses, and philantropists, all possessing vibrant personalities and often the complete inability to sit still for more than five minutes.
I proudly stand alongside the likes of "Monty Python"'s Terry Jones, Christopher Guest, Eartha Kitt and Alice Cooper, as your uniquely Aquarian guide through vintage amusement parks across the country, not just your garden-variety travel tip book.
Expect the cow to actually jump over the moon.
