Thursday Thirteen, Vol. 26

Painting by my brilliant pal Claudia.

  1. Hi! Long time no blog. Every now and then you just have to curl into a fetal position and let the world pass you by for awhile, yes?
  2. Took a few days off last week and zipped up to L.A. for a couple of days to hang out in our old stomping grounds.
  3. The little town where we met and got to know each other is thriving, with a new metro stop in the heart of town and various new cafes and hangouts. Nice to see it doing so well.
  4. The spouse started a new job on Monday. So far, he loves it.
  5. But it’s tricky for both of us to get back into the swing of that particular daily routine. For instance, 6:00 a.m. is an inhumane hour to wake up. And this from an alleged “morning person.”
  6. Looks like the book is going ahead. It’s being reviewed by editorial and design peeps, and I should have comments back in a couple of weeks. Eeek!
  7. It’s (at least tentatively, and with apologies to Linda Goodman) called “Marriage Signs,” and it’s a rumination on marriages’ sun signs. As in, the spouse and I married on May 30, hence, we’re in a Gemini marriage. That sort of thing.
  8. I’ve got an article up over at AOL Horoscopes about compatibility between opposite signs.
  9. Obama announced his candidacy on a void-of-course Moon with the Sun approaching an opposition to Saturn. Doesn’t sound that good, does it?
  10. Yikes. Am I the last person to hear that Robert Blaschke has cancer? Send good thoughts, folks.
  11. So, is anyone going to The Blast? Looks like I’ll only be there for the weekend, unfortunately, but I’m looking forward to it. Especially since…
  12. … Can you believe I’ve never been to Sedona? Isn’t it, like, Mecca for the metaphysically inclined?
  13. I have absolutely nothing new and/or interesting to say on the topic of Mercury retrograde. Wait ’til summer, though, when Venus turns around… I’ll give you an earful.

  • I was married on 5/23. SO that makes two gemini risings w. a gemini marriage. Isn’t that funny? I can’t wait to read your book.

    Mercury has been kind so far!

    I have not been to Sedona. But, I want to! Someday….

    Going to read that article now.

  • Susie

    I don’t know about you, but this is the most stressful retrograde I’ve had in a while, and my friends are saying the same.

  • Terri

    Yes, April — I’m gathering folks to go to the Blast and we shall have great fun! Very much looking forward to your lecture…

  • I am sad that this is the last Thursday Thirteen. 🙁

  • Nancy – I’ve got a Gemini Moon and the spouse Gemini rising, so I suppose that’s how we ended up in our Gemini marriage.

    Susie – It’s been most… retrogradey. Not so bad for me, but the spouse is really struggling with a bunch of new equipment he’s installing at work. Ugh.

    Terri – Hurray! I won’t have much time there, but it will be fun to see some familiar faces. 🙂

    thebluestbutterly – Yikes, I didn’t know about the end of Thursday Thirteen until I saw your comment. Well, it was a fun ride while it lasted, eh?
