The 17th day of the third month (UPDATED)



Today is the 17th day of Athyr/Hethara in the ancient Egyptian calendar, marking the death of Osiris. This one's going out to stalwart Secret Sun supporter Jason- "Isis and Osiris" from The Magic Flute.

Synchronistic-wise, it's also the birthday of my old friend Heather, whom I met while working on the 17th floor of the Empire State Building.

UPDATED: Andre has the scoop:
WASHINGTON (AP)- President Barack Obama stayed in all day before taking a motorcade with Michelle Obama to the Blue Duck Tavern to mark their 17th wedding anniversary...
The Obamas were married Oct. 3, 1992 in a ceremony at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

How about that?

  1. This is odd... Just saw this posting today (19 Aug 10), linked from the "Black Swan" posting... not sure what was happening around this time that I missed it. Anyway, thanks for the dedication, even if I didn't notice it until almost a year later.

    Mozart is my wife's favourite composer (along with Monteverdi), and Magic Flute was the first opera we saw live together... although we were on a double date with our respective significant others at the time. (My ex- seemed to like Papageno, or "the bird guy" as she called him.) Funny how these things work out.
