Virgo 0° (August 22)


I must make my two doctor’s appointments today without fail. I’ll get there. Today is the busiest day of my week without question, but that’s fine. It’s carnival in Provincetown which in some way let’s me off the hook for a few days. I will need to read back over the last couple of days here to extract some to-dos. That’s just the way this cookie crumbles. I am completely missing the boat trip now that some time has passed since we’ve been back. It is crazy to think that it is only just three weeks from tomorrow that we left the boat how is that even possible that I was in Italy fewer than three weeks ago. That is just nuts. I was awakened by what felt like a ball of panic. It did coincide with a bit of dream that I barely recall but I know it involved a certain person. Part of what needs doing on the Margie Ella list is thanking the sponsors that already exist in instagram posts. I don’t know, maybe there can be two posts a day, one about an artist, one about a sponsor. Ugh I hate this feeling of failing. Like I’m already failing today. How can I remedy this? I know stop writing this and go back to work. Okay got something done but this is what is commonly known as a scorcher! I will go until five then get ready to head out for dinner.

Got to Mac’s and put our name down and got our little buzzer and grabbed a beer and mocktail at the bar. Our friends (six of them) were still a no-show half an hour later and we nearly pulled our name. We waited another ten minutes and then figured they forgot or something and sat to write them, when nearly fifty minutes from meeting time they pulled in. What can you do? It was carnival day in Provincetown which they went to witness. And it was only midway through the meal that one of the children revealed that they had stopped somewhere to take in the view on the Atlantic side. Now, it’s good thing I really like these people, and they have no idea what a stickler for time commitments I am to be fair, but it is absolutely where my most OCD self lies. We texted (they changed numbers which we didn’t know), I was sending direct messages on IG. They were vaguely apologetic. And honestly I am in awe. For some reason I would never get away with being that late with people. I think I’ve been dumped by so-called friends for less. But I almost have to admire their nonchalance, no-biggie-right? (wrong!) attitude about it. But of course we do love them and it was great to see them and we did have a lovely time so no harm done but, on the cosmic-joke level of things. Because I do live in a world where, like Bob Newhart on his various programs, or Larry David on Curb, or even Oliver on Green Acres, I often perceive myself to be the only sane person in my sphere, and yet the universe always seems to side with all the other people. What’s that all about?

I did manage to get a great deal done yesterday, though, all in all. That is to say I made some but not all the headway I needed to make on my frontloaded project for the week (as I also kept other plates spinning). Tonight also marks the last night for a few weeks at least where I let myself enjoy my beloved beer. I read this Angela Davis: “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change…I’m changing the things I cannot accept.” And I have to say it is really working for me. I was going to pop into Provincetown, to the Post Office tomorrow, to see who has and hasn’t yet given to the festival, but I’ll wait until Saturday. It is crunch time for sure and yet I can’t be on people until after the Carnival fires have gone out. I will also need to finish the HA books today and I expect it to feel great to get that off my plate. This will not be a partying festival this year but rather very staid and sober in tone. I should also drop all I need off at Fli-bois on Friday as well. Or maybe that can wait until Monday. Yes let’s wait until Monday. How wonderful will it be to have the next three weeks, through festival time, to dedicate in large part to this sample chapter, which I will have to get my brain around starting tomorrow, Saturday. That will be quite fulfilling.


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!
