Who else is ready for the eclipse tomorrow?!

That poor leather on my desk! My parents purchased this desk in England in the late 60's, and it was an antique then. I think the time's getting close to replacing it.

Anyway, the eclipse!!

I hope everyone's Dark Moon ritual went beautifully yesterday evening! Remember to rest and absorb during today's eclipse! Journaling & meditation are favored. Open your heart to receive direction and be infused with the energy.

Knowing what personal house in your natal chart during this eclipse can be specifically helpful in what energy to work with.

In national news, the Earth is our Mother and must be protected from further ravishing damage.

This Taurus Moon has me fully anchored this morning! I awoke in the exact same position as I fell asleep last night! One thing about NaPo is that I get solid sleep each night for sure!

It's been cloudy, cool, and rainy for two days and I am so grateful because eclipse day was perfect! Everything is emerald except my pansies, who are loving this weather.

As an aside, it's interesting how Arizona is reverting to an 1800's law regarding women, yet have ignored all those 1800 laws regarding men.

For those of you who read about my cat, Miss Behavin' and her disappearance, she's back !!! Inadvertently locked in another shed once again. Of her nine lives, two have gone kaput since we hooked up and Lord knows how many before while she was out there wildin' before we stumbled onto each other.

But...she's given me (us) two poems, both of which I actually love.

TY to all who were concerned.

regards,

mrd

Had one of those "It's great to be a poet" days... to celebrate National Poetry Month I did a poetry reading... full house... read several of the poems from my latest poetry collection (Cover is imaged above)... was cotton mouthed at first... but got into my zone... had such a great time... handed out business cards and sold a bunch of books... sitting here now just savoring the feeling... I am blessed...

The clouds covered what blue we had and now it's raining again. I love it. We will need it come Spring!

After the windstorm from hell yesterday that knocked down a tree over a powerline prompting a fire ( in the wind from hell ), all is calm on the home front. It's already sunny and 60° at 10:30 AM here in Carolina. Just set clothes out on the line, thankfully. Between rain and wind I've not been able to do that for almost a week!

In national news, the history of America's Civil War. I mention this because it was trending on twitter, and of course, rumors and rumors of war. . .

Up at 1:48 pm, bed made by 3:10, breathing treatment done, pills gulped (7 of them). Watching the Masters' hanging in there for Tiger. I remember when he was the young lion of the tour. Now he's gray about the muzzle as the silver ones in his entourage follow after him with canes and memories. Connie is working and my cat is trying on a new name: Bastette. I think this is the one that fits her best, Bastet being the Egyptian cat-goddess. I have been reading *The Best American Poetry" of 2006 with guest editor Billy Collins. Treasure hoard. I have about 7 or so of the Best American Poetry series and Billy's sense of taste is so exquisite that I believe I could leaf though all of them, sight-unseen, and pick out his fingerprints over the selections. Mmm. Great supportive dreams from the Oubliette within, so my world is basically rockin' with the simple problem of 13/30 looming. I will be looking for that one which is hiding somewhere around here...stay tooned.

And, of course, 185/80.

My uncle, whom I have never met, turns 91 on the 15th and I am trying to repurpose one of my poems for him. Probably my "Refrigerator Poem" which I wrote some time ago and which I got the most positive comments of any I've written to date from y'all, so thank you for your ongoing support.

Lines running through my head:  "I grow old, I grow old/I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled./ Do I dare to eat a peach?/I shall wear white flannel trousers/and walk upon the beach./I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each./I do not think that they will sing to me."

--T.S. Eliot from "The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock. Not sure about the line breaks or exact wordage, but it's close enough here in GeezerLand.
