i fell back to sleep in the middle of the night listening to an icy mixture of sleet and snow falling through the rhodendron bushes. i woke up to a soft coating of fresh snow that set sam the beagle dancing in tail-wagging, ear-flapping delight.
it's warmed up even more and the precipitation seems to have stopped. im thinking soon buddy and i will venture out for a walk.
mercury is retrograde, and unlike a lot of folks, i enjoy mercury retrograde. i was born under mercury retrograde (9 of the 15 heavenly bodies used to calculate a horoscope are retrograde in mine...i think it explains, if not excuses, a lot). there's something about a mercury retrograde that feels like home to me.
for me, the experience of mercury retrograde is only difficult when i insist on forging ahead during a time best spent looking back.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
