What does this event have to do with me, and Astrology? My Dad created the film, “Weapons of Gordon Parks,” referring to his photography, music, films and books he created. Parks was a brilliant man with amazing talents. My father did a documentary film on Parks in the mid-sixties and I had the honor of meeting Gordon Parks (as a teen) in our living room in Larchmont, N.Y. and recognizing the immense presence and charisma of this, oh so talented human being. Gordon was born on November 30, 1912 in Fort Scott, Kansas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Parks My Dad got along with Parks. Both were Sagittarians and had a spiritual philosophical perspective on life, and loved to talk about it.

* In case you are not aware Gordon Parks passed away in March of 2006. He was a prominent photojournalist also for glamour magazines including Life and Look, he was an author   ("Learning Tree," was made into a film, was one of many books he authored) plus was the director of the well known film, "Shaft," and it's sequel, "Shaft's Big Score." He was also a classical composer! He was incredibly magnetic and handsome too.

I hope that you will get a chance to view this LIVE event tonight July 16, 2020
