Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life (from Young Frankenstein)

Your horoscope for July 1, 2009

Love and romance are apt to be among your top priorities for today, SUSAN. Someone from far away might have captured your heart, and you could therefore be looking forward to getting together with this person tonight, perhaps to attend a concert or sports event. You should find this person's presence very healing right now, and at the end of the evening feel inspired both mentally and physically. Have fun!

Yesterday's observation was pretty d*mn accurate (except for the "concert or sports event" reference) - my husband, who I haven't seen since May 19, arrived last night for a long weekend visit... and we are currently enjoying much-needed reconnection time at my sister's (headed to mom's mid-day tomorrow)...

Yes... I do admit to writing this post in advance - "the wai-ai-ai-ting is the hardest part" (Tom Petty... :-)

The problem with words of emotion
is how easily meaning drains
from their fiddle-sweet sounds
and they become empty instruments.

I can say love
and mean desire to give—
open-handed, open-hearted—
or I am drawn to the light
shining from your soul—
or my life is empty without you—
or I want to run my hands
and mouth down the length of you—
or all of these at once.

Need, now, is a plain word.
I need a nail to hang this picture.
I need money to pay my bills.
I need air and light,
water and food,
shelter from storm and sun and cold.
To be healthy,
to be sane,
to survive,
I need you.

  1. Wonderful, I know that you will enjoy every blessed minute of it! ;)

  2. Hey, M ~

    Yes, I've had a few swoonworthy moments already - we're not even due back at mom's until tomorrow (Friday) mid-day...

    I feel so decadent and pampered... with a nap, sunbathing on the deck, reading, a backrub, etc. etc. etc. - the possibilities are endlessssssss...

  3. well, you gooooooooooooooooo girl.....YAY!!!

  4. Hey, Catherine ~

    Sorry about the TMI - I still look on my blog as a journal... and forget other people might actually be reading!

    Suffice it to say I'm enjoying the visit with my husband - my spirits are lifted (nice euphemism, eh?... ;-)

  5. nope, not tmi...just envy on my part *wink*
    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

  6. My husband and I have a long history of how to nurture a long-distance relationship (we were apart two years after he graduated college... and he traveled a good bit for his job throughout our marriage) - our catch phrase has always been: "abstinence makes the heart grow fonder"... :-)
