Gemini 0° (May 19)
Remember thirty degrees of Taurus is the same as zero degrees of Gemini…
Woke at two in the morning and never really fell back; and there are two clients today, so I’m going to take this day rather easy and get on top of the cooking and some cleaning, especially of the cobwebs in my head. The farmer wrote to say an inspector is coming so I took that as my cue to ask two simple questions, to which he responded, I’ll be in the garden we can chat. I don’t feel like having to go and do all that just to get two simple questions answered so fuck it I’m not doing it. I’m really tired of the narcissists with their come-to-me attitude. I am not always available. Yesterday I wrote a letter to artists and sponsors and I activated the artists fund and so today I sent it out to everybody on the short list; and I will continue to work that magic as the months unfold. I’ve already had two formal requests and I think an informal third one. The giant lounge chairs arrived today and I’m hoping they fit on the deck, you never know. I hope that don’t require a he-man or a physicist to assemble. Although I am a little of both if truth be told. You know that game on social media from like a decade ago—chose three characters that describe you?—I chose Don Corleone, Arthur and Bugs Bunny which surely sums me up. I love Bugs Bunny so much.
I could almost go down a rabbit hole watching old cartoons. Ba-dum-bum. So yeah, I’m not ready to face the writing of a book yet today. Today is day one of thirty three days of clean living, leading up to the solstice when I plan to get good and sloshed. This is the longest spring ever. I mean it’s really effing cold. All this isolation, I know, but I gotta tell you I’m enjoying the anonymity. I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Marc Maron’s partner Lynn. Of course her name is Lynn[e] (I had to use brackets there because if you do € within an apostrophe it turns into that Euro symbol). Anyway, I won’t bore you again about this but Marc and I were in the same nursery, born hours apart, at the same hospital and that is just the very beginning of all the synchronicities we have shared over the years. Last time I saw him was at LAX waiting for a flight to Boston and he hooked us up with some tickets to his show at the Wilbur. His star has re-risen again since then. He has that hit show Glow and I have a nonprofit with the same name. That’s not even one of the biggies, synchronicity wise, trust me.
So yeah, I guess I’m sliding into home. I made (and almost burnt) a fantastic chowder for dinner, having eaten the leftover rutabaga, brussels and turkey bacon for lunch. I am really stretching out the food supply these days it’s kind of crazy. I binged on “Dead to Me.” I love Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, both. We touched base with our own TV people and I was asked (by my boss) to reiterate what I said in response. I’m going to try. Something like: Thanks for the update. So you think the pushback is on the anthology angle. Are you getting any reasons why. Are networks feeling that want a cast of characters that can develop over time and that audiences can get to know and love? Maybe it’s worth considering some kind of hybrid. When we envisoned a scripted show years ago we saw the characters of the astrologers as recurring, although they would be peripheral for the most part (although not always); and we would see various story lines from separate episodes ultimately overlap or weave with other stories as the series developed. We do have the example of the character of The Guy in “High Maintenance” being in every episode while the main thrust of each episode is centered on characters we haven’t seen before. Personally we could understand wanting some core characters to hang onto and dig into.
We move into Gemini today and I am of two minds. I want to forge ahead to make a decision to move on it; I also want to lay low and hunker down and do the absolute minimum. I’m a bit miffed and yet needing to let everything go. I want to order everything I need online. I want to put all my cash under a mattress. I want a sustainable food source. Okay with that I’m not of two minds. And, funnily enough today, I find that I get a friend request from Calendula Rose, who has a sustainable farm and non-profit business. I live on/nest to a farm owned by people named Rose. It’s all one thing as everything is. I find Chani very phony and the fact that she won’t share her birthday really bugs me. I want to find the right solution and tone for dealing with our ex publishers. I will get there. Maybe the new one isn’t the best title; and then again maybe it is. I’m going to sit here for exactly another half an hour and then set up to work outside.
The following blocks of texs are exceprts from my first year of Blagues, nos. 296-300 I am reading through all my Blagues, five per day, and posting some samples here. Now, in my sixth year of writing this Blague, but the time I get to my seventh, I will have through all the daily Blagues of my first five years. If that’s confusing I apologize:
And still: There was nothing worth posting from the five older Blagues I read today. It has been really helpful to get an idea of what the content has been over the last five years. The first year was very much about the Sabian Symbols (see below), the bulk of that material I don’t want to post in this slot. And I’m nearly through that year so, once I get into the Blagues from 2016, there will be a lot more to post here (which is a good thing because I won’t have time to write a lot à la minute as we just got a new book deal and that is where my effort and attention is going!
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!
