Mary Beach could draw horoscope charts in great detail. It was a serious hobby of hers. She only did them for people she knew, and if they piqued her interest. I completely forgot she had done mine — it was so long ago, circa 1967. An old friend reminded me the other day of what Mary said the future held for both of us. I’ll leave that to the commentary on the card.
Postscript: Coincidentally, the very funny palmistry cover for this week’s New Yorker offers a lighter touch.
