Cancer 13° (July 3)


Friday. We decided to take a little break after tomorrow night, ritualizing the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in a big way. I’m feeling it. With the five year old case complete, now; and our book contract signed, the year is laying out before our eyes and I’m feeling super positive about that. Got a bit more funding for to send to artists. Which is Oh very good Thing. I don’t know why it’s taking me so long to get back into the book but I suppose that’s just the way it goes. I am using dictation but that who is this problem it isn’t very accurate and I don’t know why people are metaphor for other aspects of my life perhaps. we shall see. I’m trying to get my stupid dictation to listen to me right Which it isn’t exactly doing. So here it is Friday of July 4th weekend the year is 2020 and things have never been so upside down. What choice we have: each other our herb garden the kitchen Good food but piano the outdoor deck with new furniture to sit in while away wearing mosquito repellent. Despite invitations in the offing for what seems like a mythical boat trip I have a feeling we’re going to be here pretty much in lock down for the whole next year, coinciding with my book writing schedule in any case. I was thinking about something And I did write it down I guess on the theme of what will happen Next after this book is complete my thought maybe it would be time for the 12 step program concept to make a return Under that a year of living … Theme. The archetypes represent the energy of the sign So when the Jesus fish said I am the Alpha and the Omega he is portraying the energy of the sign of pisces the last sign of the Zodiac which nonetheless sets the stage for a new beginning the imminent turn of the cosmic wheel not a static thing but and infinitely ongoing spiral and hopefully an upward one. That’s what I was playing with today and probably would all continue to play with every day I just need to gain new facility with all of this . At the same time trying to figure out how to safely do the things I need to do i guess i need to redefine the Word need.

I will end up talking with Ken today and it’s always great to hear his voice actually; he’s always had this sort of stuffy nose thing going on I don’t know why it makes me feel comfortable and endears him to me but there you have it. The conversation didn’t go on too long. I am just so grateful that the guys I keep in touch with from that time of my life grew up to have the same politics that I do. I noticed here and there that this guy mark for instance was appointed judge in Massachusetts by the governor which means he must be a Republican I’m guessing that’s the way it works right? So strange to imagine that the cool and breezy boys I grew up with ended up being start you Republicans . I notice it more with the women having married Republicans rather than The men I know being Republicans I hope this makes sense I’m talking all about Kids I went to grammar and high school with and with the advent of social media having seen a lot of flags waving over the years and actually having lost people especially during the Obama era which always comes down to racism, there are no two ways about that. I have to say I’m not feeling all that swift these last couple of days; I only hope it’s seasonal allergies but that’s what the mayor of Atlanta thought she had before getting tested and being confirmed positive for the virus . Ken’s daughter wants to go to B.U. I assumed he remembered that I went there but he didn’t he seemed shocked even though he was right down the road at the Rhode Island school of design Anyway such as life. I always seem to remember more about other people’s situations than they do about mine I wouldn’t mind that changing up a bit as time went on I mean I do deserve to have somebody be super mindful of me for a change I don’t know what I’m saying at this point I’m just saying anything maybe just to fill in space but it’s also quite easy to get into that rhythm verbally without having to stress my fingers and shoulders and risk carpal tunnel.

As I said I’ve raised enough money to send out a few more checks to people artists who are in need have been back and forth with Amber on the subject that’s cool I’m hoping that something really good comes from a continued fund raising effort JCM dropped out of conversation . I always feel that people assume if I ask a question like oh how long are you here that they were thinking that I want to see them or something in some kind of desperate way like I’m coming coming at them like a stalker or something but it’s just a passing comment period and then when they don’t write back it’s like oh OK well you know as my mother used to say your **** ain’t ice cream I like the way this dictation machine blocks out even The funniest words like ****. Like yesterday’s post and that post before that I’m sitting here quote unquote writing this on June 8th and after a week from not hearing back from JCM a friend mentioned that he , wearing a mask, stopped her to ask directions to stop and shop which is pretty ridiculous considering the fact the town is so tiny and there is only one store to buy food and he has been here for quite the long time. What this tells me is that he’s either eating out every meal which is seems rather unlikely or that he’s got people with him that have been doing all the shopping and suddenly he finds himself at a loss and having to venture out on his own. Poor baby. Well I’m going to do my best to wrap this blog up for the day and move on to tomorrow which is still today in my world. All the words that you’re reading right now are  are black-and-white manifestations of my difficulty at doing the actual job at hand that I’m meant to be doing which is going through that old sex trilogy and figuring out what it is I’ve said and what it is I need to say and all that jazz at the same time giving the text a good enough edit so that we can make changes to it and update it in time for when the new book comes out because , although The book was quite ahead of its time when it first came out 15 years ago it is now a little dated and in need of updating especially along the lines of sexuality and specifically gender . It is amazing how much is changed over just a span of less than a score but that’s the reality of the situation And we do well 2 make the book as appealing as possible to new readers who might be driven there by sales from our book that will come out in 2020 no sorry 2021 no probably not more like 2022 anyway we shall see what we shall see there might not be books by then Never mind the planet.

The following blocks of text are exceprts from my first year of  Blagues, nos. 496-500. I am reading through all of my Blagues, five per day, and posting some samples here. Now, in my sixth year of writing this Blague, by the time I get to my seventh, I will have journeyed through all the daily Blagues of my first five years. If that’s confusing I apologize. Year seven, I’ll only have to read through year six, once a day.  (For thirty days this paragraph will include this parentheses to say: I realized that in the summer of 2016 I actually didn’t post for some time, such that for the expanse of two months, I will continue to number the past Blagues, as above, five at a time, but there will be nothing to post from that period.)


To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. 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 365/6 days per year—so they nearly, but not exactly, correlate.


Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
