A gentle rain fell

Emerging From The Dark Night


A gentle rain fell

Following my own rainfall of tears

Coming home

I feel the weight of all I have had to deal with

In absence of others to care

I hear the inner voice saying

Not good enough

Not clean enough

Could do better

I listen but am not undone

Another part says

No one knows the hero you are

You get out of bed

Even on the hard days

You reach out

Even in the midst of pain

You feel for others and try to ease their burden

You do your level best to care for your heat

And for Jasper

Don’t listen to that other voice

You are doing so well

Maybe life consists in this

Not so much in the crazy successes of an outer life

Full of achievements

But through this heroic action

Of showing up to ordinary life in any day

And despite all odds

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
