Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

Hey, how would you like to win a signed copy of my novel, MIRIAM THE MEDIUM? (Simon & Schuster) All you have to do is give the best answer to this question:

Do you believe in fate? Why or why not? Serious or nutty answers are always welcome!

I absolutely believe in fate, but I also believe you can change your fate, too. I don't think things are predestined. At least I hope not!

Fate is a concept I am grappling with, because in the Buddhist culture I was brought up in, we believe in predestination. But in Western society there is much emphasis on free will. I would like to think of fate as like an overall design for life, but within that design one has the freedom to move about. That is my conception of fate, and I know it is still a premature one. But that is the best I can come up. =)

I believe in Fate and Freedom of Will.God the Big Psychic of them all knows what we are going to will, right? Then there be fate and he would tell his Prophets what we were going to do so they could tell the people and Freedom of Will because we actually get to choose.

When and where does fate exist in the time/space continuum? If at all? One of my favorite quotes (my birthday is Dec. 28) came from a William Shatner (aka Capt. Kirk) cop show that was on TV in the 80s, I think. "I don't believe in astrology because I'm a Capricorn and Capricorns don't believe in astrology." My own experiences with precognition are mysterious and wonderful. But I always wonder if it's just coincidence that I encountered.
