Gemini 21° (June 11)


Last night was indeed very weird. Today we head to Canada even though it’s kind of torrential out there but never mind. I am sitting here in bed in Reading sipping some coffee in the early hours thinking of how I can put myself into a little bit of bootcamp and also save a lot of time (and little bit of moolah) and I think I have the answer. I am going to set up my own little home hot-yoga studio after all. All I really need to do to achieve that is to purchase a cheapo full length mirror and the rest is super doable now that it is summer and I can heat up the room upstairs to 100° quite easily I imagine. I can use two space heater and shut the doors and windows and put the heat on for 90 minutes a day in any case if I need to and move the twin bed to the basement and maybe even get that existing heavy mirror upstairs if, say, Jonah wants to do some heavy lifting for me. I think that could be quite a good idea actually but really I don’t need to do that so scratch that idea. Oh but look, even though I mightn’t employ that notion, I still managed to get a paragraph onto paper…

Left Boston area around 8:30 AM and was raining most of the way. Fairly relaxing only a few moments of feeling a bit dizzy as the barometer kept shifting and we rose higher toward Franconia Notch. Listened to both Crosby & Nash records, the first one being a total gem of an album now listed among my favorites of all time. We had it growing up but I didn’t remember many of the offerings, or would have known to appreciate them. A small wait at the border but not too bad and we were at the manoir in under four hours, and it is a world away. I really have come to love this part of the world and the hotel is so glamours in the most understated and earthy of ways. I plan to come here again and again and again. Surely to get my tennis on (again) and maybe even get back onto that horse. I don’t think I’m quite as afraid of certain things as I used to be which is quite a good development of age. We had a little bit of lunch in the tap room as we awaited to check into our room; and then we went for a dip in the pool. S. left fairly soon and went to the small gym. I swam and swam and swam and felt slightly weird after I must say. I do think I must have something going on with my inner ear or something but I will get to the bottom of that soon enough.

Came back up to the room and had a little jacuzzi and did a little bit of writing—hello—and then went to dinner which begain with a wee cocktail and then some delicious local cabernet franc followed by a even wee-er bit of medoc and, something I never have, a calvados. But after scallop (me) lobster (her) appetizer and lamb (me) and salmon (her) main (with a little amuse bouche and then a suprise of duck with chestnut and mushroom), followed by a lot of cheese (we opted out of the dessert) the liquid portion of the meal barely made a dent. I learned a bit about the history, meanwhile: The area was settled by loyalists who lost (obvs) the Revolutionary War and asked the crown for some land not very much further north of the border. And then those who lost the Civil War opted out of their former summer digs in New England, the land of their enemies, and they came north too to settle around the large lake that defines this area. I am an ocean queen there is no doubt about it, but I can see myself setting here too. In the meantime I intend to come here every season (okay maybe not in winter) and make it my retreat (maybe not in summer either), so I ammend: I’ll come here in the late Spring and early autumn for a week of time each. It is so damned relaxing it’s not real. I will do a little research on house prices in the area too why not?


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!
