Almost every thing is cancelled! Time for tea, knitting, making button holes in a knitted sweater, finding an antique in the basement to give to a friend for his birthday, baking cinnamon bread, paying someone else to snow blow the driveway and walkways, since we have over 13 inches and it's only 10:30 AM and another storm is coming through this afternoon!

|the Age of Aquarius begins
At 7:25 AM, Saturday, February 14, 2009, the Age of Aquarius astrologically officially began.
This morning, I read, coincidentally, on page 31 in "Kuan Yin" by Daniela Schenker, "...it serves to connect Kuan Yin's ancient message with our current Aquarian Age, the age of women."
It's pretty exiting to actually be here (alive on Earth) for the beginning of the age of love, peace, and happiness!

My friend has safely arrived at Al Asad Airbase, Iraq, "the largest US military base in the Sunni western Iraq province" currently home base for the Marine's Aircraft. "Al Asad is a major convoy hub hosting hundreds of fuel and supply trucks every day. Huge shipments of fule are commonly run along the dangerous routes coming out of Jordan and despite insurgent attempts a majority of these covoys arrive at their destination untouched." Says the web article in Wikipedia. He is living in large canvas tent with 7 other men. After training on the truck cabs and trailers (since the parts are made from around the world, there is a lot to learn) his first convoy will be with an experienced driver. He'll sit in the other seat and observe, on the trip out. He drives on the return trip with the other guy supporting. He didn't say how many of these commence before he drives solo. This reality is so vastly different from mine.

I spent a few hours in the local ER getting my hand sitched up after I sliced it with a very sharp and nasty Exacto knife blade. I was working on my watercolor painting, planning to use the tip to scrape away some paint. The plastic safety cover was stuck over the blade so I had my right hand on the cover and my left hand on the handle and was pulling and pulling. Suddenly they two separated and my left hand went down and then back up. The blade sliced into my right hand about 2 inches below my pinky finger, in the fleshy part. It didn't hurt really, but it wouldn't stop bleeding and was wide open. After 35 minutes and two soaked wash clothes, I called a friend who drove me to the ER. I ended up with a Tetanus-Diphtheria booster (the shot that leaves your arm sore for several days) and three stitches in my right, and dominant, hand. It's swollen and purple and everytime I move my arm it's very sore where the shot was. My fingers are okay, but I bumped the incision area a few times and I am sore, sore, sore. We are having a Nor'easter tomorrow with 14" inches of snow coming from 4 AM to 6 PM, so I'm staying home to let the tissue area calm down. I know this is not a big deal and I am very lucky, but trama to the hand and body is still trama. So tomorrow, I'll sit by the fire and heal.

Why does WERS, Emerson College radio, play this song many times thoughout the day? "Your Arms Around Me" by Jens Lekman. It always catches my ear because, not only are the words a bit odd, but his voice sounds similar to the ole' Ricky Nelson songs! Is this Jens Lekman liked by any of you?
