moon melancholy * aquarius season

 

A cold wind is blowing.

The treetops are swaying and my breath drifts off in white whispers.

The brown and gray landscaping is starting to take a toll on me.

Hello – can you please help me get these boots off my feet

Double-crossed by a fan dancer

– from the movie gold diggers of 1937?  Not a particularly good movie in my opinion and I think this was the only funny line.  Somehow it tickles my fancy.

I’ll never be seen again.

oh so many projects and a peacock in my living room

Why is there a peacock in my living room?

We have so many projects going at once.  We start one, then something comes up and we stop what we are working on and move on to something else.  Please tell me we aren’t the only ones with too many irons in the fire?
