i just saw a butterfly

Soundtrack of the day: Polvo (thanks john d), Trans Am, U2, Pixies, William Orbit, Panasonic, Violent Femmes, Porno For Pyros, Claire.

I just saw a butterfly when I went outside at noon.

It made me smile.

This is my horoscope for the day:

You’re in a position to make some profound decisions about your creative expression and make some investments of your time and energy as well. You may have a chance to work in a partnership situation with someone at a distance. Some careful restructuring of your daily schedule may be necessary if you are to express your talent. Investigate any opportunities that come your way. Try to rekindle a romantic spark in your marriage. If you’re not married, try to get in touch with a creative opportunity.
