ESPL: Dances of the Planets
The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos.  There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realize.   The idea for this article is from a book Larry Pesavento shared with me.  The book, 'A Little Book of Coincidence' by John Martineau, illustrates the orbital patterns and several of their geometrical relationships.  .

Take the orbits of any two planets and draw a line between the two planet positions every few days.  Because the inner planet orbits faster than the outer planet, interesting patterns evolve.  Each planetary pairing has its own unique dance rhythm.  For example, the Earth-Venus dance returns to the original starting position after eight Earth years.  Eight Earth years equals thirteen Venus years.  Note that 8 and 13 are members of the Fibonacci number series.

    Earth:     8 years * 365.256 days/year  =  2,922.05 days                   
    Venus:  13 years * 224.701 days/year  =  2,921.11 days (ie. 99.9%)

Watching the Earth-Venus dance for eight years creates this beautiful five-petal flower with the Sun at the center.  (5 is another Fibonacci number.)

Bragging rights
I have the same number of fingers and toes as almost everyone else. I like to cook. I am not a type A personality. In fact, I am an ENFP, the most fluffy, soft, round, non-linear, not goal-directed type, and I am deeply thus. I am proud and nervous about that. I am a green belt in karate and movin it!

I am a new student here, and I am diggin' it!! Mr Letourneau and his team of black belts put on quite a class! Several, actually. Large classes are broken down into mini classes that meet the needs of those on the floor. A black belt might take one or more students to work on the basic kicks, blocks and punches, and I have seen (and sometimes experienced as well) more advanced students engage in kata, swordplay, nun-chucks, bo staff work, sparring, work with the hanging bags, and BOB, the (nonbobbing) mannikin... and probably more! Sometimes two classes share the floor, with one class working on aikido while the other learns karate. This is just what I have observed in my first 3 weeks!! There are quite a few young folk out there with advanced belts, and there are some adorable tots who get to play jumping and running and kicking games to learn the martial arts. The atmosphere is relaxed yet energetically charged. The teaching is clear and concise, with attention paid to each student's needs and challenges. I know what I need to learn to progress, and I am taught not only that but so much more! This is a great place to earn a black belt!!
