getting ready!


TAURUS : You remind me of a garden plot that has
recently been plowed and rained on. Now the sun is out. The air is warm.
Your dirt is wet and fertile. The feeling is a bit unsettled because the stuff
that was below ground got churned up to the top. Instead of a flat
surface, you've got furrows. But the overall mood is expectant. Blithe
magic is in the air. Soon it will be time to grow new life. Oh, but just one
thing is missing: The seeds have yet to be sown. That's going to happen
very soon. Right?

Getting ready for the mfa defense in two weeks. The work is near complete, videos are pleasing, frosting cubes and hoops are just about perfect. Now I need to figure out how to transport them, and get my show up to Maine! IT's ALMOST HERE!

awe

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): "Our brains are no longer conditioned for
reverence and awe," said novelist John Updike. That's a sad possibility.
Could you please do something to dispute or override it, Taurus?


 Would it be too much to ask if I encouraged you to go out in quest of 
lyrical miracles that fill you with wonder? Can I persuade you to be 
alert for sweet mysteries that provoke dizzying joy and uncanny
 breakthroughs that heal a wound you've feared might forever plague you?
 Here's what the astrological omens suggest: 
Phenomena that stir reverence and awe are far more likely than usual.

this is a good one

TAURUS It's Love Your Messes Week, Taurus. In
accordance with the astrological omens, you are authorized to love the
hell out of the messes in your life -- from the small, awkward knots of
confusion to the big, beautiful heaps of fertile chaos. This is not a time to
feel embarrassed or apologize for your messes; not a time to shy away
from them or ignore them. On the contrary, you should explore them,
celebrate them, and even take advantage of them. Whatever else they
are, your messes are untapped sources of energy. Learn to love them for
the mysterious lessons they keep teaching you. Love them for the
courage and willpower they compel you to summon. Love them for the
novelty they bring your way and the interesting stories they add to your
personal legend.

frosting on the hoop

today I went back to frosting hoops, after hours and hours spent writing rewriting writing rewriting.
it's okay. The frosting looks good AND I referenced some old monoprints that I had done two summers ago. So that was good too.

it's pink

Your true color is

Pink

Your motto is Go, Go, Go! But you also know how to relax and recharge your batteries for the next big thing. You like to work hard, play hard, and nap hard
