Today is the sacred feast day of the Roman Concordia, goddess of understanding, peace and, of course, concord. Her temple in Rome served as the meeting place for the senate. In sacred images she is often shown seated, holding a sacrificial bowl in one hand and a cornucopia, provider of limitless food and symbol of fertility, in the other. My hope is that, on this day, the powers that be might possibly get their collective heads out of their asses and get something done as opposed to spending their time, and our tax money, slinging mud. On a smaller scale I'd say this is a good time to sit down with family or friends and make peace in the home and in one's daily life.
