Boy, you turn me
And 'round and 'round
- Diana Ross, "Upside Down"
Mercury retrograde is back! Can you feel it? Is your technology wonky? Are you struggling to be on time? Is your car acting squirrelly? Does accomplishing the smallest thing seem just a wee bit harder than it has to be? We spent 36 hours without internet as soon as the retrograde began. Then the world went crazy with nuclear bomb smack talk and racist rallies. This is shaping up to be quite a doozy. So what's a girl to do?
The best thing about being unplugged is not hearing the news. It allows a little space between hither and yon. But eventually the lemons pile up, and it's time to make the lemonade. When I can't control the wide world (which is every day, of course, but some days it seems more significant than others) then I just control my own world. I start cleaning out closets, organizing, making labels, sorting files and making sense of little things. Several trips to Goodwill later, I find myself saying "What's next?" and looking for projects.
