Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

Wednesday of the First Week in Lent

James Jacques Tissot, Brooklyn Museum.

While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them,

"This generation is an evil generation;
it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it,except the sign of Jonah.
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
At the judgment the queen of the south will rise with the men of this generation
and she will condemn them,
because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon,

and there is something greater than Solomon here.
At the judgment the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation
and condemn it, because at the preaching of Jonah they repented,
and there is something greater than Jonah here."

                                                                            Luke 11:29-32

Am I seeking a sign, or am I a part of the sign that is being given?
