Salt Of The Earth

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ Star

The star of longevity, Canopus, is represented by this elderly figure who holds the peaches of the tree that produces its fruit once every 3000 years. The stag is the conductor of souls in many beliefs and cranes represent faithfulness and long life.

I was reminded by this card to finally get around to taking a longevity test, this one from the University of Pennsylvania. My results:

Life Expectancy: 89.14
Lower Quartile : 82.44
Median Lifetime: 90.45
Upper Quartile : 97.01

More than 30 years ahead of me; I can live with that. One thing I've been working on is changing my favorite food from salt...it didn't do a thing for Nancy Crater (Star Trek 1966) and I'm sure it isn't doing much for me.
