Where'd Mercury go?
If you know about mercury retrograde then you may know it started today and like any good astrologer might predict, communications were all screwed up. I wont go into the gory details, but let's just say I'll be stunned if this posts without a problem. :) I thought that since this event only happens quarterly, (or so) that I'd send a moment pausing to look at the stars and then I caught a little inspiration.
I have to admit, I love doing shots of the trees against the night sky. I wish I had an expansive wide angle lens to grab every bit of light possible. Tonight was beautiful and freaking cold. I went out after the boys went down and grabbed a bunch of shots. Only a few were in focus and it has sparked a competitive thing in me to get a bunch of crazy good night photos. :) On these cold nights the stars are so beautiful.
This weekend we'll be celebrating Connor's 3rd birthday. He has no real idea what's coming his way in terms of attention and presents and the coveted cake. I will venture to say that after this one, he wont forget. But being mercury retrograde, he might interpret it as some other event like when grandparents stay over, and then hound us for cake every time we see anyone over 50. :)
