Just stumbled upon this as I’m working my way through your very interesting and beautifully constructed blog, thanks! I’m a Water Snake (born ’53) so this year is special in the 60-year cycle of my reality.
Don’t forget ‘Horse Latitudes’ by The Doors :-) for next year (which is my wife’s 60th)
“When the still sea conspires an armor
And her sullen and aborted currents breed tiny monsters
True sailing is dead
And the first animal is jettisoned
Legs furiously pumping
Their stiff green gallop
And heads bob up
In mute nostril agony
And sealed over”
