when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

Mercury Major Retrograde
According to the NASA web site, of which I am a subscriber, Mercury made a solar transit on November ninth. This apparently occurs every 300 years. Every time Mercury transits the Earth, communications go completely haywire. When the great messenger crossed paths with the Sun 2 weeks ago, I lost the ability to think in one complete sentence. The puppy, now snuggled on my side was supposed top fly in on Thursday the ninth. Theresa in Ohio, his breeder, travelled an hour to the airport in the wee hours of the morning and sat for hours waiting for the cargo hold to open. They opened at 7:30 with less than the mandatory 2 hour check in time available. Kramer(the puppy) and Theresa were sent home. He flew in the following Sunday and he's great but that's another story. The court date for Wiley versus the Faust character landlord had been set for Wed. the 8th. After months of volleying with the plaintiffs, all paper files and evidence for such trial were accidentally locked in a file cabinet to which we had no key. Finals are about to begin. I am going to my little cousins wedding the day after Thanksgiving. It's a black tie affair and I have nothing to wear and it's in Florida and my bank accounts are nearly empty. My dreams have been fractured and melt like snowflakes on the wood stove as I try to reclaim them. I plant and separate bulbs in my garden, looking for one continuous thought to play from cover to cover.No blogging, no writing, the first twenty days of November.
