A Sirius Wish (Retired)
The truth is out there. Diving deep or flying high you have to keep searching and stay engaged.
Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols, as well as their interpretations. The ability to communicate an idea is nearly impossible. It is honestly magic that we do do it. When you are studied in stories, words, symbols, tropes, references, memes, gifs, emojis, etc., communication becomes possible. The sharing of knowledge fuels our species and allows us to reach for the stars.
Sirius, the Dog Star, shines brightly in the deep blue sky from across the galaxy, over two and a half parsecs away. It shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow, depending on which moment you choose to look. Schrödinger’s star can be all the colors at once in your mind’s eye.
A harbinger of the flood, when you spot Sirius it is time to make a wish, to tap into hope, and to speak your truth no matter how hard. Flood can be literal, or figurative. All that to say, an abundance is going to flow into your life. Of what? We could not say.
Those that can read the signs can foretell the future. With an understanding of symbols, the simplest of ideas can be conveyed. And the slightest change of context can completely transform the translation. But with a little effort, we can fight through and understand each other across the vast expanse of the galaxy, err, Internet™ ... Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.
A SIRIUS WISH showcases the dark night sky where a million billion pricks of light beam down to remind us to make a wish.
