Mercury Still Retrograde

Earlier this month, took my son to see LaLaLand, then tried to play “City of Stars” on the ukulele.  That’s when tendons in my carpal tunnel snapped.   Makes it hard to hold a fork, so I used my fingers to hold the chicken while I cut it up this morning for the dog’s breakfast.  That’s when I stabbed my finger.  Mercury turns direct on May 4.  I’d cross my fingers but, well…

Mercury Goes Direct


After the past three weeks, a retrograde Mercury turns direct again today.  Like any Mercury-retrograde period, these past few weeks were filled with travel and communication snafus; yet this was also, as usual, a great time for looking backward — to analyze past projects and endeavors, to determine what’s best to leave behind, to decide what’s best to keep going forward.  For me, this past retrograde period was great for revision.  I revised ten poems originally drafted during the summer of 2013.  Three months from now, when Mercury turns retrograde again for another three weeks, I’ll revise more of those older poems.  For now, I’m looking forward to learning new skills with photography and video, planning my classes for the spring semester, and making new friends.  Bottom line:  It’s a new day with new possibilities.  That’s always good!  (Plus, with a little luck, the Giants may yet walk away with another World Series.)
