Leo 0° (July 20)


Today was pretty extraordinary I must say. Woke up still feeling a bit squiffy but had just half an hour to grab a something to eat and hop in the car. The boat has traveled overnight to Dephi. I am in Delphi I can hardly believe it. We are going to the ruins and the museum and I’m sort of beside myself with excitement. We breezed through the museum first with our guide who (I think) was called Theodore and then we headed up the hill a bit to see what we could see. It was pretty extraordinary I must say. We returned in time for lunch which was venison skewers and turkey meatballs with a certain teriyaki twist and rice noodles and egg plant and a bunch of other yummy things. We had some Sauvignon Blanc and there was a plum sorbet. After lunch I tried to nap but didn’t. I read some Noble Rot; S. did fall a sleep for a very short bit. I think she thinks she slept longer than she did; I’m not going to break the news to her that she didn’t.

We made our way to Corinth and through the canal which was really cool and powered on to Athens, passing some major cargo ships along the way. I had skipped tea time because I really wanted to get some things in the can, which I’ve sort of done. I sent a whole bunch of links to Neil following up on the songs we sang last night but I can feel that I’m getting some kind of throaty type thing post the blocked ear problem I’ve been having. I already feel a bit bloated and need to slow down on the food intake and start using the gym for starters. But I think I will get there, realistically, by Monday, when I can settle into something of a routine; and then I’ll still have a good eleven days from that point to totally chill into a process of bringing in the last bits of money while assembling the sample chapter portion of the proposal—business as usual, while still being away on a boat sailing the Mediterranean, which should be none to shabby.

I arrived for drinks earlier than usual to find people were already cocktailing it up so I orded the requisite Negroni and just chatted with everybody which was really fun. The canapes were crab in philo cups and beef with pomegranate, which I can spell, surprisingly. Everyone on the boat is nicer and more interesting than the next with strong personalities which is great. With an online glimpse I see, back home, that JVB has performed The Club in Provincetown and I have homo, which is fomo, Ptown style. I had a text/picture from Matt Ray at Long Pond. I do need to contact the short list of folks that Alex at Joe’s Pub has suggested to replace Matt who will be performing with Taylor Mac this year instead of doing shows with JVB and S+C. We headed into dinner which was halibut (delcious) and I think the sorbet was something blood orangey perhaps. We played Scabby Queen which was really fun and of course Euan lost because we had a big drama over dinner about how the loser of the game would have to jump of the boat which is something he is determined not to do. I do not blame him. This was the dinner which begain with us wearing masks. Then everyone went ashore in Vouliagmeni to take the dog for a stroll. I decided to grab a cashmere blanket and try to get some sleep on the upper deck. I managed to stay up there till 3:30 AM but I could tell my throat was having none of it and that I’m getting a bit sick which is a bummer.


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!
