body clock

Out of sync, off kilter
wide awake
though around and about
is asleep, including I imagine
even the gargoyles of Notre Dame.

Even the cats in Paris are aristocratic.
One of sights as I walked for about five
hours along the Seine,
into Nortre Dame,
through the Luxembourg Gardens,
also browsing ubiquitous book
shops, book stalls, as well as people-watching
in a cafe, got lost finally,
figured the route out (I'm directionally challenged) and collapsed.
What a sea change from July's red mesa-scapes.
Tomorrow I'm thinking BatOBus.

what the stars say

Horoscope for week of October 15, 2009

Were you ever a tiger in one of your past lives? If so, this would be an excellent time to tap into that power. If you have never lived the life of a tiger, would you be willing to imagine that you did? During the coming week's challenges, you will really benefit from being able to call on the specific kind of intelligence a tiger possesses, as well as its speed, perceptivity, sense of smell, charisma, and beauty. Your homework is to spend ten minutes envisioning yourself inhabiting the body of a tiger.

I know pretty pictures but it's nearly my birthday and it's playoff
season and all of a sudden all the leaves tumbled off branches
in wind andit smells like decay, which I don't mind in fact aside
from the smell of the ocean the scent of fall is one of my most
favorite, and I'm making soup for dinner and will probably go kick
some leaf piles later so there.
(I haven't really been away, just from here, but really
I've been around it's just that sometimes
I don't want to be here here.)
