Gemini 22° (June 12)
Didn’t sleep very well and was up for about two and a half hours in the night; finally fell but then the alarm (set by last guests we guess) went off at six so not feeling extremely rested but not to bad. Got a bit of writing done this morning and then headed down to the best breakfast in the world where we had a very good meeting and sorted out a lot of stuff. I sent some notes to the more errant artists who’ve yet to deliver their goods and am getting my brain around a few things that need doing in no certain order: 1) Go down the list of Sponsors who’ve yet to give (most of whom I’ve already written just a few of whom I haven’t) and put a fire under them. 2) Pull the trigger on the festival’s Names Poster and get it into works, also reminding peeps (J.) to send an invoice dated July 1. 3) Begin to build out the Tickets page on the website and get all relevant information to the Art House. 4) Send pics to J. for him to finish the job and to create the individual artists pages. 5) Start hitting the Sparklers one by one. 6) Start targeting the would-be Missionary Sponsors. 7) Use this platform, here, to get some Marthe blurbs in works; 8) Book all the artists trains and ferries; that alone would put me in good shape by July 1; trying to get the bulk of it done on the weekend(s); meanwhile June 17-21 will consist of the completion of the above plus the nuts and bolts of the proposal proper which will be sent to our agent, June 22 and 23 is going to be about collecting all the needed fodder to start the process of writing the sample which will happen 26-4. I will do my shopping at Map on July 5 and figure out the bus schedule along with the sticker needs.
Anyway I’ll keep adding to the above.
Meanwhile we had massages today and then took a stroll around the grounds and then had a lovely lunch of oysters (me) and shrimp salad with all sorts of yummy stuff and some local white. All great. Then we sat by the pool all afternoon where we met two lovely guys, a couple, from Argentina by way of Somerville, both Geminis, Guillermo and Geronimo, whose birthday it was. I swam a ton and did some reading up some Boston folk. And had a pretty good idea about getting our design biz moving which is definitely going to be a full time job and so the bulk of my writing here will likely change and become very much focused on notes for the new tome. Because there will be other forms of writing needing doing in regard to the business and the product descriptions and all of that. We did find out from Tim regarding the tees that Ben and Tess will indeed model. Speaking of which S. is thinking about a new agency in Boston and I would love to have Nancy take our pics—indeed all our pics, portraits and product included—for all our upcoming projects. I will also talk to her about being on our board which I also mentioned to Terry yesterday. Pretty much all the performers have beamed in which is quite a boon. I’m looking very much forward to an easeful couple of weeks of putting everything into place.
Got a bit dressed for dinner and headed down for a cocktail outside. I finally feel like I’ve gotten rid of the rif raf in my life. I don’t want to go back to that nor do I feel I should. It’s all about moving forward and making the connections we are making and finding a new and elevated footing. The work ahead will not be easy but it can be simple if we let it be. There is so much possibility now and even something like the tees, should we sell a thousand of them, would reward us ten fold, which is a nice bit of something; added to which, and this is the most important part, the advent of a new book should be the main focus, now, for the next six weeks. That is enough time to make a proposal sing and to put it into capable hands. I am definitely honing in on the future and I’m looking forward now to a little bit of unfolding to occur. I deserve to be the happiest I’ve ever been and the only advice I need give to myself is: Don’t fuck it up. I will put more thoughts onto paper about product and such when I land back in the U.S. tomorrow.
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!
