watching out for mercury

I am reminded strongly that Mercury is in retrograde right now. How is this visible? Take a look at the technological thingies in your life--yes, I mean your laptop, ipod, cell, tv, etc. etc.--as well as the toaster, car, garage door opener, and light switches. Are they going nutty? Not working up to par? Then there you have it: Mercury in retrograde, at your service.

I have thus far escaped any particularly tricky issues, but other problems raise their icky little heads, such as miscommunication, nasty tempers, and general confusion swirling around.

It all comes together. Really. The general response usually is, Run! Or, Hide! Both work well when M. swivels around backward, as it were.

On the bright side for me, at least, it's an excellent time to retreat and write, write, write. Oh, and read, read, read. Two of my favorite things, of course. And otherwise, I lay low.

Anyway, I hope your Mercury retrograde issues are of little concern. Remember: keep your head down, take care of yourself, retreat to your sanctuary if you must, and most of all, chant the mantra: This too shall pass.

Amen to that! ;)

Hello Julie,

I hope you don't find this reply to your post weird or intrusive in any way because that was not our intent.

Do you remember Michelle and I from the week long trip we took in Utah? If not, that is ok.

When you told us that you are a freelance writer we were curious if you were published. After hearing you tell a story or two and realizing how articulate and engaging you are, we decided to do a quick "google" and lo and behold, your blog popped up.

We thought we would do a quick shout out to you and say "hello" and tell you to keep up the good work. Its obvious you have a passion for the outdoors and the literary world....

As far as technological thingies go.... Well, I suck at technology and wouldn't know if "they" were operating correctly to save my life. I'd rather analyze my squash and tomato's, perhaps even my high maintenance dog than troubleshoot a 'pooter. ;-)

Anyhow....Hopefully your not running to the nearest court house for a restraining order....

Take care and have fun out in that beautiful country. Give Ely a pat for me!

Chris and Michelle

Hi Chris & Michelle! Oh course I remember you. Thanks for looking me up and checking out my lil' blog. I've been neglecting it lately...been busy riding horses. :)

It was great meeting you guys..I have your email addresses & will stay in touch. Off to do another trip tomorrow! Will definitely say hi to Ely for you.
