Free will and Feathers, November 16, 2010

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Why did feathered dinosaurs evolve wings? Paleontologists in Britain have a new theory: It added to their sexual allure. The head researcher at the University of Manchester speculated that "maybe they ran around with their arms outstretched to show off how pretty their feathers were." Eventually those forearms became wings that came in handy for flying. In other words, the power of flight did not originate from the urge to fly but rather from the urge to be attractive. Oddly enough, Taurus, this approach to understanding evolution would be useful for you to meditate on in the coming weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you could develop some interesting new capacities as you work to enhance your appeal to people who matter.

Washed Miss November in the washing machine this morning, because I went to bed early last night.  Warm water on a delicate wash with Ecover detergent and delicate heat for 30 min.  Whoa, she got clean! Way cleaner than by hand in the tub.  

Went to an artist crit group tonight to talk about this project.  A fantastic suggestion was made: why not try various fabrics that react differently and unpredictably with regards to each other in the the wash.  So more wool here I come.  

As I am thinking up excuses for ways to get out of having to wear Miss November all day long, I am confronted with my second rule... Exercise.
