Libra 10° (October 3)


Had an appointment this morning with a favorite client then we went to the Naco Taco truck. Was delicious in the extreme, but we don’t we’ll be hungry tonight. I am taking an Uber to  Mt Auburn, will have to get an MRI. Turned out was in the hospital, walked into Harvard Square and stopped to use the facilities at Charles Hotel before strolling slowly to Waypoint to meet. I had some local-ish oysters and a glass of Italian white. Then we sat and shared a picked vegetable salad. S. had some peel and eat shrimp; and I had her usual pasta. I went to the space for half hour whereupon I was met by Sophie who told me the curtain speech was changed once again. I went directly to the trouble-maker and he pretended he didn’t know what I/Sophie was talking about. S. found him incredibly rude which of course he was/is. It’s too bad that this person represents this act. I forsee it being a point of downfall. Also as good as a voice as an artist can have, like our festival MD once said, when people don’t know how to sing properly, the shelf life of their voice can be shorter than they might like. Anyway it was a decent evening if not a bit overlong. I am looking forward to tomorrowland but it might never come. In fact it doesn’t. But for now I’m doing the best I can. And it was nice that we had a new friend on hand to play with. I can’t recall if anyone else joined our table. There was another empty one so I sat apart in any case, just soaking in the experience, which is never that earth shaking. Some people think they are better than they are, but that’s okay too. Look, I need to put whatever I can into what it is I and we are doing as a duo. That very much entails doing what we can to keep the enterprise going. In fact, I need to raise money now to do what I can do in the coming year. This will not be a popular decision, but it will be one to make in any case. I will be putting out requests for folks to give me whatever they got.

I don’t want to feel constrained in my writing. I want things to flow from my brain onto the page a little bit more easily. I am taking the entire day to get thoughts and feels out of my tense shoulders and down my arms and out through my finger tips. I will put Machine Dazzle on the list. And here I go, a little late now in the game, but that will be part of the fun. I want to eradicate the phrase “catching up” from my vocabulary; nobody needs to know what’s going on with me either so I will add to that eradication list “apologizing, complaining, explaining”—it turns out it was Dorothy Parker and not Churchill and certainly not Kate Moss who coined that original quote which I bastardize here. I would have liked Dorothy Parker but she would have eaten me for breakfast and not in the fun way. We love the Golden Girls but the aesthetic of the show makes us so nauseous we can barely glance at the screen. Other people I have let get away with murder when I in fact have gone so wildly unforgiven. I will find a path through the maze. That’s okay. I think I can see a bit of a path this time. I don’t know how to arrange my thinking quite yet but I have this distinct feeling that I needn’t try. I did reach out to Brian to thank him for the help with promoting shows for us, which was a very kind thing to do indeed. I won’t be around past this November show, so I will need to groom Brian in a direction. I wonder if he’s given any more thought to what I proposed. It is too bad that people can never admit their faults. I seem to always be doing so (to a fault). The language we want to use. Hey you two. Hoping all is well and rosey in your world. We’ve been a bit unsure about what to do since your emails from July. We know you were playing catch up from when we chatted a few months before that, and that you were making some hay while the sun shined—and the last thing we wanted to do was pester you or make you feel obliged in any way shape or form to work on this. So we are just jumping in here to say we totally understand if Astercast hasn’t been topping your agenda. And we are just confirming that you haven’t yet done any work on this before we explore options with a few other designers who have expressed interest in taking on the project. We have to be armed and ready at the start of the new year which will soon be upon us. That said, and as discussed before, there will always be opportunities to intersect and collaborate down the line. If all goes to plan, Astercast should require something of a permanent art department at some point. And more than anything, we don’t want to put any kind of strain on our most cherished friendship and we want to eradicate even the slightest feeling of obligation in all of this. Communication is king (and queen) here so there is nothing you can say that will disappoint us. The timing has to be right for you guys!


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!
