Aries 28° (April 17)
So far this year I have visited four countries, seeing dozens of friends who live in these places, including London, Edinburgh and the Highlands, Venice and Paris. I have written all of the twelve Starsky + Cox 2021 Haute Astrology Books, completed a course at the Alliance Francaise in Paris, did a 30-day daily Bikram Yoga challenge (though I got shut down on day 24), helped develop an entire (top secret) product line; had our second book optioned for a TV show, been hired as a consultant for said show, hiring a manager in the process. And I have sold a new book to a new publisher, Hachette, which is super exciting, while continuing to see our regular year-round clients and a few new ones. I have also executed a branding/writing project for a fashion design company, and I have outlined the structure and casting for this year’s performance festival, drafting letters (I am sitting on) to would be sponsors. All this plus the shopping and cooking of mostly creative meals and the drinking of many delicious, though inexpensive organic or biodynamic red wines. I have made a slew of new friendships and seen a few end by no fault of mine. I have endured the escape from these countries from whence our travel was cancelled (with not just the help but with the absolute power of generous friends who found me transport); and I have gone through all the packing and unpacking and every receipt and tallied every bit of financial information to date for several budgets needing balancing. I will now re-read our first book and hand edits to that first publisher as I get on a writing schedule that will total fourteen months into the future. I have also reached the near-end in the process for reaching a settlement with the perpetrator who miraculously didn’t kill me in a car accident they caused, rear-ending us on a highway going full speed, five years ago. All of this should be adding up to a good deal of opportunity if not money in the bank. But having properties is having money in the bank. Very soon I will find a way to address the publisher of our first book, a company owned by the evil Murdochs, with which we seem to be at odds. It’s like I always say if you’re going to be at odds with somebody (or, in the extreme, have enemies) be damned sure that they are really bad people. I feel that way about a few key past players in my life now too, to be honest.
Last night we sat and listened to Belle and Sebastian, it was very therapeutic. I ended up finishing an entire project and I’m really excited to dive into the next one which is very fun and fashion-y. All in all I think I have a good plan that might also include some relaxation. I think my approach for the festival is a good one. We wait until May probably and I will talk about what’s gone down and how we are going to do what we can. Our plan had already been to offer students and seniors, blah blah; we are now considering doing all invited audience and space people out in the theater, handing out masks we make, The artists could still come, that is if we have a theater, which we may not in the end; I’m sure everyone is hedging their bets. I am starving for friendship and scared of them all at the same time. Did I just say that “aloud.” But seriously, I also happen to live in a place that is so incredibly polarized. It is all I can do to walk down the street without feeling like it’s the halls of junior high, rife with rancor and ridicule. I’m very much getting into my book characters; especially given the birth details of John Dee. I feel bad I don’t play more music. I think this is the answer, antidote and the absolute priority of life. I mean, let me amend, I do play music, I just don’t have any real expertise in doing so. But I’m so determined to get it all going. I’m going to whip myself into shape and then get that podcast going because really it is the only thing. And I’d rather have somebody buy into something that already exists, something I can spearhead, then try to get people interested in you. That’s not really my beat, not that I wouldn’t let the manager try that angle…
…we actually ended up talking about it all and we both have differing (big surprise) views but both of them are actually valid. In any case that is the calling card. The point S. is making is that we need to sell and have it funded and yes we do. All told, this will be on the front load. And all things hang from there. I have to include blind confidence, now, as a resource, if not some swaggering bravado. I have to act like I know what I know more than my INFJ sense of self would normally allow. I think about going to the Jacquemart-André that day and then over to the museum where the skateboarders played. I need to download some of those pictures. It was a wonderful day with the skateboarders. And then we had snacks at Café du Marche and then dinner at La Laiterie and it was already kind of a ghost town. I cannot believe that I have been home for nearly a month already; so much has happened and then nothing has. I really cannot wait to get back overseas; but how will anyone fly anywhere nowadays without fear of infection. We can’t take boats. We can’t fly private although there was nothing betterin the world than that. I truly cannot believe we got to fly in a plane, just the two of us, all thanks to our billionaire friend. It is an experience most people will never enjoy. It was just incredible I still can’t even believe it’s real.
The following blocks of texs are exceprts from my first year of Blagues, nos. 136-140. 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:
nothing to insert from the past Blagues today!
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof 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!
