Since I’ve started blogging here, almost a month ago, I’ve written every day. Posted more than once a day, usually. Until yesterday. I’d like to blame this on the Cardinal T-Square which, day by day, is tightening into a Grand Cross. There’s a big sucking sound and it’s ugly. Saturn’s at 10 Libra, Pluto at 6 Capricorn, Uranus at 4 Aries and the Sun at 1 degree Cancer. Do you feel squeezed? I do. And squeezed is a nice word for it. And our third eclipse is… coming.
I’d love to end this post with some snappy advice or celebrity news (yeah, right) but then I looked in my Blackberry, where I write when I’m not at home and I see some words from Pema Chodron who I listened to yesterday. “Lower your standards and relax as it is.”
Can you do that? Do you want to? Does it apply? What does it mean to “lower your standards”? (More on this later.)
My usually quiet apartment is suddenly loud today. A road crew out back (is it a road crew?) has been up to something since early this morning. Maybe I’ll tell them to lower their standards and relax as it is and leave the street alone.
There it is. A smile 🙂
PS I put The Hotel New Hampshire picture here because of the recurring phrase in the book, “keep passing the open windows” which is today’s mantra. Also, a “character” in that book was a teacher of mine, poet Donald Justice. I think all my writing, in way or another, is dedicated to him.
