LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
I love this excerpt from “The Seeker,” a poem by Rilke in his Book of Hours (translated by Robert Bly): “I am circling around God, around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.” Here’s my own personal variation: “I am circling around love, around the throbbing hum, and I have been circling for thousands of days, and I still don’t know if I am a wounded saint, or a rainy dawn, or a creation story.” Please compose your own version of this poem, Leo. It’s an excellent time to fantasize about what you’re circling around and what force of nature you might be.

Since I’m under deadline and not REALLY reading all I have is my Emergency Book (the one you never leave home without). Funny enough it’s CJ Lyons’ Lifelines!
Suicide bombing didn’t quite fit the impression she’d gotten of Matthew Kent earlier that day. But she’d met him for only a few minutes.
They arrived at her room and she unlocked the door, Trey still hovering, watching her every move.
I’m gonna skip #5 😉
