Investigation with No Published Results: Tchiya Amet, on her Experience of Neil deGrasse Tyson

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


Tchiya Amet is a survivor in the true sense of the word. For the past 35 years, she has survived. She has done her best to live, to grow, to participate in the world, to love, and to make art and music. It has not been easy.

Monday Morning Horoscope #168 for March 18, 2019

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


One of the most unusual Mercury-goes-direct moments I’ve ever seen is now in progress, and is taking place in your sign.
