    Dear Moon~

    I'm glad I did not misunderstand. I do not wish to be annoyingly up-beat however you may find in the interim -and it will be an interim even if we have to wait for a vaccine - that there may be aspects of your new style that end up giving you satisfaction.

    After all, I changed careers after a complete disaster and came to be rewarded by my new life

    DB~ It's very rude to laugh at a walrus!

    Dear Moon

    That's a long stretch between Titania and a walrus, an optician's delight I'd imagine. Oberon with coke-bottle thick spectacles sort of spoils the atmosphere.

    You know, if you were not the same Moon than before I'd not be able to enjoy a joke with you -I'd be too worried.

    True events can change people, but you have resilience and coping skills - and black boots. The same Moon, with maybe just a pinch more in your pile of wisdom, will emerge.

    You have a tendency to worry overmuch and your future self is your current object of anxiety.

    You liked your old self, you are not going to change and will like yourself again, as we do now. If ever asked to explain Portia's values (from a bowler's point of view of course) you might provide a tad more insight, but that's all.

    Dear Moon and Quirky~

    I don't have to look it up, we played that at a school I went to, it is Desdemona being unjustly judged just because she misplaced her hanky. I was the third Venetian from the left (fortunately a non-speaking part). That is the year after we did Macbeth where I mumbled as a page, I even remember the line " The king comes to-night."

    Still that 's probably better than Moon implying I'm playing at Corin with an eye to a comely shepherdess, not a pastime walruses indulge in your ethereal highness! (Mrs C would probably have decided views on the matter anyway).

    Quotes set down by the big Bill are OK, but a trifle heavy for a scatterbrain like me, so as a change of pace

    “I am compliance itself when I am not thwarted; no one more easily led when I have my own way.”

    Ooh Croix...careful...you mustn't mention "the Scottish play" by name. Its terribly bad luck!

    I followed Quirky's instructions too and didn't look anything up...my first thought was that she was Dreaming..(am I right Quirky?)

    Can I ask what sign of the zodiac you are Croix? Your mate Bill was a Taurus.

    Dear Moon~

    You are so right. The bad luck did in fact happen, the school in question, a very old one, bunt down its main building (where the plays were held, complete with minstrels' gallery), to the ground. It had to be re-built in red brick, but with sandstone windows as a nod to the past. Even had a new minstrel's gallery.

    I was born a tad earlier than expected under the sign "Maternity wing this way ". Considerably later on the police used Zephyr Zodiacs as patrol cars - is that any help?

    I'm afraid I was not over-impressed with one aspect of astrology. Once when desktop business computers were first starting a lady asked me to get one and set up software that printed out natal charts. The software had to come from Salt Lake City, the center of genealogy at the time.

    Computing back then was very primitive and very hard to use, no mouse point and click, but type, calculate, type some more.

    Unfortunately the lady discovered entering a person's data was entirely too taxing, from then on everyone got the same natal chart printout. I guess it made me wonder about things

    Dear All

    You may have noticed I'm posting a fair bit less of recent days. Unfortunately I have some respiratory problems and have had to cut down (but not stop) my efforts for the moment.

    I'd expect to be back to normal (well normal for a walrus) before too long.

    If I'm slow responding I apologize in advance

    Dear DB, Grandy, Quirky, Smallwolf, Moon and All.

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you, I really so appreciate your words of kindness and encouragement. In the interim feeling too tired to do my normal thngs gets me frustrated and impatient as things pile up.

    Dear Moon~ I don't think you needed to ponder the matter before accepting. A lifetime of bowing has given you a rich set of ablities you a can rely upon ~ I'm delighted you are getting what you wish for and a double dose at that!

    All of you are good people and the world is richer for your presence

    Hi Croix (and waves to everyone)

    Sorry to hear you've had respiratory problems. I hope you're feeling better?

    Walruses shouldn't get things like that... I trust Mrs C is taking excellent care of you. 🤗💜💜

    I played Portia and other parts in Shakespeare plays in high school and that school Auditorium has burnt down twice. Strangely.

    My father became an Astrologer but not for readings, for study. It was so strange when I phoned him to share something and he would say "I know, it's in your natal chart" (lol).

    He made natal charts for each of my eldest children.
    Funnily I remember some things he said from each - and he was trying to force me to study Astrology also... each of those things he said has come to pass.
    One just this week with my eldest daughter.
    He died many years ago, so my youngest children haven't had their natal charts done.

    Hey quirky, since our Dear Walrus won't disclose his star sign, want to hazard a guess???

    I intuit a grounded personality so maybe an Earth sign?
    Probably with influences of water though.

    What do you think quirks?

    Moon - so wonderful your precious bowling is open and you're enjoying that part of your life again. Hugs.

    Love to you all
    EM

    No problem Mr Croixy ☺ dazzling smile that one.

    Just rest up dear man. If you can try to chanell the impatience and frustration although quite understandable to using that energy into healing your poor body.

    You too are a very good man.

    Wishing you the best Mr Walrus 🐧 always including now.

    You're very cared about by many.

    🕊 White peace dove.
