Scorpio 15° (November 7)
Ticket sales are low. Oh well. I’m feeling pour-ly. I go for a walk and meet S. on the street. We were thinking of seeing a movie but it’s not feeling right. Surprisingly Stella suggests a lunch out. We speak to our agent about strategy and feel celebratory. Early holiday lunch at La Voile where I have a beer and snails and steak and wine and a cheese course. Mind you I’ve already had a Pho lunch and Uni dinner out with drinks (yesterday). Get nervous. We actually napped, both of us, after lunch. Had text from folks that they were done early and could they go to restaurant, which was fine. But guess who already ordered a bottle of wine plus oysters (that had come and gone) and some shrimp; ironic as that is always our first order too, but still. The show was actually pretty great.
It’s one of those moments in life where things really have to shift for the better—always up to us—or expect there to be lost. We were contacted by the astro girls and I have to think up some questions based on what they have planned. First, are you still on track timewise or is there a chance this will be pushed back. Or is it coming together and if so who else is on board at this point. What questions (and answers) have already come up in conversation with other participants. Our specific questions are:
The most important thing I can provide myself is somesense of completion. Our day to day is never complete, I realize. But it is quite important to have some sense that enough is enough day to day. I think it is possible to have both things going at once. And I think a little bit of geographical cure can help in this process. I am willing to remain based where I am and continue to give myself increasing time in places of my choice until it becomes so obvious we have to stay put. For the plug in list: Going through DB and doing a bit of “profiling”, at the same time sending good Sparkler candidates the HA offer. I should get a bit of writing down again on that grant.
We primarily calculate attendance in ticket sales. Our many generous sponsors do receive free passes. We increased discounts to showgoers—we doubled our “Sparkler” ticket discount this year—and enjoyed a marked increase in Missionary Sponsors, local businesses whose owners and staff also receive free festival passes. This further augmented audiences beyond what ticket-sales intake might show. All told our shows and events brought hundreds of additional audience members to Afterglow’s attention.
Afterglow promotes Provincetown as a destination for travelers during festival week and all year long. 85% of Afterglow’s audience comes from Off-Cape. Attendees stay in inns and hotels, frequent restaurants, bars, lounges, nightclubs; and partake of the many shops, arts venues and services. Businesses cite an economic boon during festival—audiences and artists not only eat, drink and shop, but take tours, rent bikes, ride ferries and sample all the town offers. Afterglow advertises town businesses via its website, programs and social media. Festival artists also promote businesses they frequent via Instagram et al. Afterglow’s audience are well-heeled travelers and influencers who spend generously, tip freely, support local commerce and enrich the Provincetown’s economy. The festival has partnered with other non-profits, donating proceeds of its shows to such organizations as The Trevor Project, Camp Lightbulb, the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod and Helping Our Women (HOW).
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!
