What happens afterward
Patterns, Im all about patterns.
(Analysis, it's a virgo sickness.)
Fr'instance, what happens AFTER mercury retrogrades.
When a cycle passes, the circle of people Im around has changed, as either Ive left a certain group or come into contact with another.
The transitions are often dramatic, usually in restrospect.
When I first got to the East Bay, I hung with folk enamored of the hedonist/Burning Man/hippie lifestyle.
That rapidly got old.
Since then Ive been around a wide range of Berkeley folk, most transitioning or on the low end of their luck.
Theyve been fucking amazing actually.
Now, I find myself transitioning again.
The good part of this pattern is that out of each period, I get to hang on to a few Good People, who stick around over the years.
In the long term, thats the best part.
