Dear --name--

There is no doubt that Frank Jensen's passing deeply touches many amongst us who have been around the tarot (or indeed anthroposohical and cinematographic) world for some time. Amongst his many other connections, Frank shared not only a tarot interest, as well as, though in quite different ways to myself, having a connection with Rudolf Steiner's works. As Lyn has written the in memoriam, I shall leave it for readers to refer to the above article. Needless to say, I am sure I share the feelings of many in passing on my condolences to his family and close friends. He will be missed.

On Saturday and Sunday, Victoria Chorale (with which I am involved) will be singing the Requiem by Mozart - I'll keep Frank in mind during this timely rendition.

On a different note, I'll be addressing the post-graduate students at the Charles Darwin University next month, with a focus on the development of Steiner-Waldorf education as an instantiation of one branch in what Steiner referred to as the three-fold social order.

ThreeHares in New Scientist

A fellow member of the Victorian Lodge of Research has allerted me to a short piece included in a current issue of New Scientist on the same motif as my own website. As I mention on my homepage, I have long been interested in the three-hare 'problem', and the author of the article and I had been in touch some years ago. It's certainly good to see that this interest is capturing the imagination of others!

All aspects of Tarot and Divination are of potential interest and for 2017 there are specific calls for participants in sessions on
