Something has been really wrong over here. Every time I blink, something seems to break. I put together a little photo montage of all the things that have broken in my house in the past couple of weeks.
When things all start to fall apart like this, I always remember my former friend and co-worker Barbara W. She was in the production department, writing, filming and editing commercials. But her true love was astrology, and she knew her stuff. For quite some time, she had her own astrology show on one of our cable channels. When ever I'd have a bad run like this, she'd say "Well, of course, Mercury is retrograde!! Don't touch anything until it rights itself again". I'm a Gemini, which means Mercury rules my sign. (Pea is a Virgo, the other sign ruled by Mercury, so it's double trouble for us. Are you listening, Christine??)
Once our internet connection decided it felt like working again, I hopped on the web to search for the dates Mercury is in retrograde this year. I wasn't too surprised by what I found. I know a lot of people think astrology is all a bunch of hooey, but clearly I am not one of them. I can always tell when Mercury is in retrograde. I can also feel my old friend Barbara here with me, visiting from where ever she went on that Thanksgiving evening when she passed to another place.
I know, Barbara, hold on for five more days. All will be right on the 29th. I'm listening!!
