My dear friend and beloved ex-husband Larry Silverman has made this amazing documentary about a guy who lives in Arizona who makes surgical amendments to people's bodies. This is kind of beyond piercing, the way that alpha centauri is beyond our solar system. It's gorgeously told and completely mesmerizing -- a horror-film for grownups, Mr.
I feel compelled to write more than the usual entries here (Thanks KATTTHTHTY for the comment further down). I still find this template slower than molasses in january for me to type in (I type 100 words a minute and hopefully think faster than that). Anyway, I have this great Shadow Puppet Theater we've been doing (Button Box Shadow Theater) and if you read this and work at a library we do an excellent performance/workshop with our 5 x 6 foot theater.
I got this really great coffee maker a month ago. An "Aeropress" (sorry no link), and it makes DEMONICALLY great coffee. The problem is that 4 cups of espresso adds up, volume-wise to about 2 cups of my moomintroll coffee cup set. So it was easy to drink tons of this. And tons obviously wasn't enough because I got an Athena-in-the-head-of-jove-style headache on Friday and only woke up (for good) today after deathdealing pain.
Happy birthday Chuck and Joyce Linehan! Scorpio has had a great year w/jupiter and later this month it's Sagittarius's turn. Scorpio can only stand so much attention anyway...
I just wrote this at my friend Kathy's site. She'd been musing on faith and god and those big questions...:
re: faith. God is an astrologer, I think, who sets up complicated games of soul Sudoko across the universe and it's up to us to read the signs (in others and ourselves) and make the best choice possible given available information.
I read a lot of blogs, which are helpful research as I know when the writers were born so it's easy to see the astrological stresses. But what I'm continually amused by is the perfect synchronicity between my collection of hermit crabs (arboreal, not oceanic) and the phases of the moon. They have been falling over themselves to get to the salt pond, climb into the food dishes, and turn over shells.
Sometimes I find the full moon very useful for cleaning and putting clutter away, a perpetual problem for two people who work at home. I vacillate between thinking about insulating the barn and saying the hell with it, putting these shirts in chromatic order is fun!
Anyway, some musings on the full moon. The Episcopalians, who can be completely maddening in their waffliness have elected a female bishop which I thought happened years ago.
man it's WAY too late, this is what happens staying up w/tivo'd CSI and curtains to make. Also fresh pipecleaners because Tiger Dai needed red pipecleaners and now I'm making little cats out of them. When I was little I was extremely crafty for someone who didn't sew well, embroidered intermittently, never finished a crewel or needlework project that was larger than 3 x 3 inches and my medium was pipecleaners.
Oh, look at that, a Taurus moon. Now I have to BUY SOMETHING! Seriously though, I just updated my profile at matchbook.org, which is the directory for Massachusetts performers. I'm probably in my own little category over there. Need an astrologer for a party? (Wow, gibbous moon AND stealing my tiny child's hallowe'en candy has interesting F/x!)
Belated thanks to the ladies who attended my Cambridge Center classes, "Understanding Your Horoscope" and "The Moon and You." Some even came for both classes which was very gratifying.
I'm behind in all my correspondence while I finish forecasts for ... 2008. Yes, I do not "live in the now." Thank goodness for understanding editors -- it's a lot of work to look at a year's aspects, over and over and see the patterns and connections and potholes and so on.
