Is it just me or does this seem like a lot of work?
I spent the morning on craig's list looking at apartments. Tomorrow I will go and look at a select list of them in person to check out neighborhoods and their reality (as seen from outside the gates) as opposed to their selling points. Then I make appointments to see ones I like with the boy. I wish I could speed through this process somehow, my least favorite part of moving is the hunt for a new place.
I looked up my horoscope for the week at Free Will astrology and it's frighteningly accurate for what is happening in my world right now.
Horoscope for Aquarius (January 20-February18) for the week of March 13-19.
"The composer Stravinsky had written a new piece with a difficult violin passage," writes Thomas Powers, quoted in the book Sunbeams. "After it had been in rehearsal for several weeks, the solo violinist came to Stravinsky and said he was sorry, he had tried his best, the passage was too difficult, no violinist could play it. Stravinsky said, 'I understand that. What I am after is the sound of someone trying to play it.'" Keep this story close to your heart in the coming week, Aquarius. It will give you the proper perspective as you, too, go about the work of doing the best you can at a task that is virtually impossible to perfect.
Something else I found out in Portland at the Chinese garden - my zodiac animal is a rat not a cow. Seems since I was born in January and Chinese New Year is usually in early February that I can not simply go by the handy look up the year guides but was supposed to check dates too. Who knew? So I left an ox and came back a rat.
Something like this can change your whole world view.
