Scorpio for this week:
A drunk dominatrix sidled up to me at a party and said, “Reverend, please absolve me of my sins.” I’m not officially a priest, but in the spirit of fun and games I replied, “Why, my dear? Have you seen the error of your ways?” She spread her arms wide as she bowed, hissing like a serpent through a toothy smile. “Not at all, Reverend,” she said. “I just want to clear the docket so I can go out and commit a slew of fresh, new sins with crazy abandon.” I sprinkled a few drops of her Heineken on her head and channeled William Blake: “You’ll never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough. The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. If the fool would persist in her folly she would become wise.” And now, Scorpio, I’m channeling the same blessing for you.
How does one know their boundaries, if one does not seek to cross them, from time to time? Much less, how would one know where the excesses lie, or what they consist of, if one has not seen them or experienced them? There are some things I know, like how much anger I never want to feel again. How much sorrow is too much….but two things that I would actually enjoy having too much of….I want to love to excess and feel an overwhelming amount of joy. Wouldn’t it be a trip to be drunk on those two, especially for no particular reason, at all.
