Aries - week of October 26, 2006

Nineteenth-century English poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti wrote a series of sensual sonnets inspired by his relationship with his wife Elizabeth. Before he could publish them, Elizabeth died. He was so distraught he placed the only copy of his manuscript in the grave with her. Years later, though, he decided the love poems were too good to consign forever to the oblivion of the dirt. He had the coffin disinterred and recovered his work. I suggest you draw inspiration from this story, Aries. Reclaim riches that you once abandoned or left for dead. Halloween costume suggestions: grave-digger, archaeologist, miner, psychic medium who communes with the spirits of the departed.

Oh, do take up psychic mediumship! Then ask my great grandmother, LaRenee Painter, where she went, and if Poppy killed her. (Also, where is the money?)

Tragic love, disinterred coffins, halloween costume suggestions--I might start following my horoscope if they are always this fun.

That is so funny. Last week I went to the ASU library and, on a whim, tracked down my MFA Thesis on its shelf, flipped through, and thought, "Well, these poems weren't that bad..."

Also, can you find my real parents before the bad people stole me?
