GO ON A VIDEO WALKING TOUR OF THE PENOBSCOT BLDGS
Karen Wood Got my allergy shots there every week as a kid in the early 60's. Remember seeing JFKennedy driving in a convertible with his entourage through Detroit in 1960 as we came out of the building. Brings back so many memories. Beautiful building!
Wilson Pickett and Jimi Hendrix -May 5 1966
This was at an Atlantic Records party to launch Percy Sledges' 'When A Man Love A Woman' album, with Cornell Dupree behind Wilson.
Pickett is in top form, backed by guitar-slinger Hendrix, who gives no clue of the counter-culture hero he would become in a mere few months..By the end of the year Jimi was in London getting Experienced.
THE MOON appears in a reading when you are not sure of your destination, or even of the path you are travelling but you travel nonetheless. You may have lost your way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by your inner light and intuition. You need to go on without a clear picture of where you are, where you are going or where you have been.
The Moon is a card of intuition and psychic forces, so let go of your conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk, and allow your intuition to guide you. Your dreams, intuitions, and inner promptings lead you forward toward higher levels of understanding if you listen carefully and use your judgement to help interpret the veiled messages of the unconscious. Not only will the way forward be revealed but in many cases you will learn lessons about yourself that will be valuable in later journeys.
