Here’s a fact about me: I read my horoscope once in a while, but not for the reasons that you might imagine.
No, I read my horoscope to get writing prompts.
On the days when I read my daily horoscope, I save the ones that I think will challenge me to think about my life in a new way. Then on a future day when I cannot think of what to say, I peruse my horoscopes and use one as a way to start writing.

To wit, here’s a horoscope from who knows when that got me thinking over the weekend.
Use your energy wisely to work with the natural currents instead of trying to control them. It’s not your job to eliminate the clouds; the sky will clear on its own.

What did I get thinking? I decided that even though I’ve almost always been a morning blogger, I’m going to change my posting schedule to the afternoon for the month of March.
You see, I’d like to use my energy in a different way. I want to go for a walk outside each day, and mornings around here have the least amount of vehicle traffic. [No sidewalks here.]

So instead of plopping down in front of my computer, typing my morning away– I’m going to be propelling myself out the front door, trudging my morning away.
Which means that you, my gentle readers, will just have to wait until I’m done being healthy each morning, and [hopefully] regain enough energy thereafter to sit down and
pursue my passion for flapdoodle and twaddle write my blog posts.
Guess we’ll see how this all works out together, won’t we?
