October Dawns with Much Unfinished Business

October has dawned with the usual prospects of the sweetness of fruits of harvests along with the expectations of cooler temperatures to reinforce the advent of Autumn.

Yet, with the beginning of October, some old business from earlier this year, some from last year, some from the past decade and some from the previous millennium, remain unsettled.

The advent of October brings continued rescue, clean up and recovery efforts from the deadly natural disasters - earthquake and tsunami, in Indonesia from last Friday. 

In the United States (US), many Carolinians are still witnessing their homes and businesses under water from the recent flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Furthermore, controversy continues over a Supreme Court nominee as a trade war escalates with China and Democrats gear up to win one or both chambers of the US Congress to place checks upon a controversial president. 

And sadly, in Yemen and in Syria, war still rages as the conflict in Syria nears a decade of human destruction. 

Political discord persists in many jurisdictions as the war over ideology transcends national borders to circumvent on the Internet.

October offers to usher in some change - political, economic, weather or otherwise, and therein lies the beauty of the month of Libras. Welcome October!
