Winter has gone/Where do we belong


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your web of allies is a crucial part of your pursuit of happiness. The stimulation and support you ask them for are vivid evidence that you love life and have a strong sense of what’s good for you. Every now and then, however, you need to remember that it’s important to avoid falling completely under their influence. You’ve got to resist peer pressure, and declare your independence from the crowd’s power to shape you. Now is such a time, Taurus.

Hmm, does this mean I can disregard anything anyone says to me? HAHAHAH! Actually it’s probably more like time to remember how and who I am when I’m completely independent. HURRAH for bogus horoscapes that I can shape any way I like.

It’s stupid cold here and yet, I swear to god I can feel impending spring the air the last couple days. Maybe it’s the Just Noticeable Difference in the angle of the sunlight. I’m not sure exactly. As I said it’s cold here and supposed to stay that way for bit and yet I still feel like we’ve turned a corner on the dead of winter. Or perhaps I’m just exercising the power of positive thinking.

In that vein, today’s song: Josh Rouse – Winter in the Hamptons (click to download). I can’t pin why, but this song is making me so happy right now. I must have listened to it six times today.

  1. I like your winter song. I didn’t feel like I had a winter this year. California it just gets smoggier and stinkier around winter. It seems.

  2. It’s a good song.

    I had more winter than I was prepared for, I think. Though I’m never prepared for winter. I think of it only a burden that must be born so that we will all enjoy spring that much more.

  3. That’s a neat song (goodness though it sounds very.. I don’t know the name for the genre. West-coast-y?)
