This is not really a fire story, but a small dairy entry to keep you up with my journey. This morning upon awakening my first thought dictated, “Your head has gone into retrograde and will proceed right back up your ass.” I seemed quite amused by that phrase and held it not as threat but entertainment. As I went about my day, I used it as joke on several folks. It got good laughs and lightness. It also seemed to hold a wide portent for the day. Not only were the world’s financial markets heading down the tubes, but many folks seemed to be in manic states that seemed to be headed Iin tight circular directions. Lots of energy seemed to be not directed. Later, on at least two occasions, was I informed that Mercury was in retrograde. Folks into astrology regard this as an ominous sign.
I was able to maintain lightheartedness and believed this heavy dark state would pass. Throughout the day, I kept to light small projects. I traveled to visit a friend and check on some chairs she had gotten hold of to learn caning techniques. While there, I helped install plastic window coverings. After returning home, I kept to cutting up some firewood and building a small fire in the fireplace. Even if Mercury was in retrograde or my head was up my ass, nothing so untoward occurred that it needed major revision.
After getting home from a meeting in the evening and completing a couple of phone calls, I settled to posting my daily blog. I decided to not write a fire story but post a diary entry. At first I tired to find my pre fire story entries to add today’s posting to my other log. Much to my shock I could not find any of my previous writings. I quickly commenced an anxious search for them. Going through my folder, I did not recognize the collection of writings I posted on line since February, this year. I hastily opened a new file and began downloading the articles as posted on the Internet. I had to copy and transfer them a month at a time. By the time I transferred June, I heard a slight sound going off . It was the tune of my head popping out of my rectum. I suddenly remembered the name of my log file. I searched and found it. I immediately saw that all my work had been safe all along. I do not know if Mercury is still in retrograde, but, it seems a little clearer in my head.
