Avery writes on The Smell Of Oblivion:
“You remind me of those deep-sea creatures that have been wayyyyy down there for eons but we’re only now beginning to discover, much less understand. We have no comprehension of what goes on down there, but you do, and here we all are up in the coves, in the shallows, in the sun.”
You know, Avery that sounds about right. Thanks for articulating that, I would not have been able to. Or perhaps I just have no idea what I am although I am acutely aware of my experience and it does seem I am coming into view. There are just too many tables full of people with their eyes wide staring at me to be coincidence and I don’t know what to say to them except, “I’m from the desert”.
But I am from the desert and I did grow up without a tv and I have never seen an episode of Idol (or whatever it is called), Law and Order, the mafia show, Sex in the City or anything else. And it occurred to me yesterday that perhaps this is why I think the way I do. I don’t have any mass market in my brain but anyway, yesterday I had to tell a virtual stranger who was trying to converse with me, I would not be able to do it.
I told her my life was in crisis and I just could not have a conversation with her at this time. I mean, I am sorry but I just can’t talk to you right now and here’s why. How’s that for Saturn in Virgo?
I also have Saturn transiting my 8th house and Pluto my 12th. This ain’t no joke, I’ll tell you that. And I’ll tell you one more thing:
Awhile back, I had a prominent astrologer write me, he’s very educated. He asked about my background and I didn’t know what to do so I sent him that picture up there, ha ha ha. For the record, he has spoken to me since. 😉
But you get the idea. I have no idea how I got here or why I am the way I am but I do know I am real and this seems to be coming more apparent than it has been in the past. I am thinking in that picture by the way and I am not thinking, “I wish I had a tv.” 🙂
