The good news is: we’re halfway through Mercury Retrograde.
The bad news is: we’re halfway through Mercury Retrograde.

Feeling frustrated? Misunderstood? Like you’re speaking a different language than everybody else? A friend has posted a fine astrological and personal account of Mercury Retrograde. It totally describes my experience with Mercury Retrograde where all communication goes down the drain. Everything seems haywire, bent out of shape. Plus, it’s got an animated GIF, to boot.

In my text based work, I thought a lot about the general inadequacy of language, and the gap between word and meaning. And after the recent campaign debates, I find myself unable to resist seeking out colleagues who can vet my perceptions—Nooo, he didn’t say that! She totally dodged the question! Did you see that? Tell me I’m not alone here. We aren’t speaking different languages, are we?

Regardless, hopefully, those of you who can make it to the Headlands Open House will do so. Of course since it’s Mercury Retrograde, double check your calendar, bring directions, and don’t forget to say hi to me in my studio in the basement of 960.
