Aries 21° (April 11)
Today I have to go back and regroup on the Pisces stuff I wrote and circle back around to Aries again such that, in the next six days, I have absolute completed drafts of all our books for the year ahead. I’m in the process of taking inventory of what I’ve said about each of the twenty-four sex-signs since I wrote Sextrology; and what new avenues I can open in the exploration of the signs and the people born under them. That’s the goal. Then I’m going to move into the search for material in the Cosmic Blague mines or vaults (a very Scorpio notion). None of the above happened. Instead I messed around all afternoon. I did write this though:
Year on year I reach out to you in hopes of even the vaguest form of reconciliation. As so many of my friends have become your friends over the years I’m often asked: “Why do you and Billy not speak?” It’s a difficult question to answer. It isn’t because of my confronting you about doing drugs in the Zipper Factory dressing room (when it was no longer ours but the next act’s) plus your going around Stell and me to get a gig there because that blew over and we were friendly(ish) for years after that (case in point the below exchange).
I mean the real answer is because you broke off all connection when I texted you to say “I’d like to punch you in the nose” when I heard you had brought heroin to turn on Nath Ann and Vivian. By the way Vivian didn’t tell me that (Viv did NOT want Stella and I to know it originally) but it was a mutual friend of JVB’s and ours who did tell us (much to Viv’s consternation). I know that later it became an anecdotal piece of entertainment but at the time I did not think it was funny and I was severely pissed at you (given my own experience with your more “pushing” inclinations).
But I don’t tell our mutual friends THAT either when they ask because the true story involves other people. So what do I tell them? Mostly: You’ll have to ask Billy. The truth is neither Stella nor I ever did anything to you but call you out on bad behavior. I know I’m not perfect and I could have handled things more delicately. But we never did anything to hurt you. In fact, we did everything to help you dating back: introducing you our NYC friends, giving you a computer, giving you clothes, making you meals, paying you for even the smallest rehearsal (mainly as a conceit),and promoting your talents which you have by the bucketful, to everyone we knew
To my mind you found the smallest excuse you could to dump us as friends and I must admit I found it VERY hurtful at the time. But me being me I guess, I still reach out, pretty much annually, to try and repair what can be repaired and you just ignore me. The definition of insanity being what it is it’s probably crazy to think I’ll hear back from you. Maybe you can at least provide a better answer to the question: Why it is we do not speak?
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
