“Longing, what is that? Desire, what is that?” Those are questions Louise Gluck asks in her poem “Prism.” Does she really not know? Has she somehow become innocent again, free from all her memories of what longing and desire have meant to her in the past? That’s what I wish for you right now, Sagittarius. Can you do it? Can you enter into beginner’s mind and feel your longing and desire as if they were brand new, just born, as fresh and primal as they were at the moment you fell in love for the first time? If you can manage it, you will bestow upon yourself a big blessing.

Don: How’s it going?
Peggy: Did you park your white horse outside? Spare me the suspense and tell me what your save the day plan is.
Don: I don’t have anything yet. The idea I had wasn’t great.
Peggy: It wasn’t great. It was terrible. I wanna hear the real one. Or are you just gonna pull it out during the presentation?
Don: This idea is good. I think we can get the client to buy it.
Peggy: No you don’t or you wouldn’t have questioned it.
Don: I’m going to do whatever you say.
Peggy: So you’re going to pitch the hell out of my shitty idea and I’m going to fail.
Don: Peggy, I’m here to help you do whatever you want to do.
Peggy: Well, how am I supposed to know?
Don: That’s a tough one.
Peggy: You love this.
Don: Not really. I want you to feel good about what you’re doing, but you never know. That’s just the job.
Peggy: What’s the job?
Don: Living and not knowing.

“Perché scrivi solo cose tristi?” – “Perché quando sono felice esco”.

Luigi Tenco

“You ran unopposed!” / “Leave the thinking to me!” / “Where would mother be without her perfect nose?” / “It’s a nose job, not an abortion.” / “I’m not stupid. I speak Italian.”

Lagertha was, according to legend, a Danish Viking shieldmaiden from what is now Norway, and the onetime wife of the famous Viking Ragnar Lodbrok. Her tale, as recorded by the chronicler Saxo in the 12th century, may be a reflection of tales about Þorgerðr Hölgabrúðr, a Norse deity. Her name as recorded by Saxo, Lathgertha, is likely a Latinization of the Old Norse Hlaðgerðr (Hladgerd).

Bill: Was my reaction really that surprising?
The Bride: Yes, it was. Could you do what you did? Of course you could. But, I never thought you would or could do that to me.
Bill: I’m really sorry, Kiddo. But you thought wrong.
