new year's eve is terribly romantic, even if it is only jesus' circumcision. i think it is way more romantic than any other holiday. i have had this fantasy since i was maybe 8 or so that i would meet the love of my life & sing new year's eve to them shortly before new year's eve. & of course everything would work out beautifully. it's not going to happen, of course, because it requires meeting the love of my life in december. and it would only work if i'd just met the person and didn't know what they thought of me; it has to be gutsy. so it requires perfect timing on too many levels. and an accompanist. and i have mikey, so i'm not exactly looking. i like mikey.
i broke a nail down to the quick. i have very nice long nails, most of the time. but one of them broke all the way down on the doorframe. i dunno what that means.
i also had an extraordinary dream last night. i think it was inspired by the fire in peru, which i only had overheard accounts of at that point. & it was about jules' mother, auberonna silver, as a young woman, defeating a powerful hypnotist's attempt to cause mass hysteria in a building that was being pumped with poisonous gas made from pepper and some lethal ingredient. the pepper was to make everyone thing it wasn't poison that was making them feel all funny. anyway, auberonna, who was very young at the time and called aubie (which was short for something else) gzylbr, was able to reign in the hypnosis and escape while saving several others (including a young man who had attempted to rape her). & that is how she learned about true hypnosis & began to forward it as the science of her century. "the next great battle is inside the human mind," she said.
i am going to go to bed. love and peace to all.
