My horoscope for today begins with this:

You may have trouble holding it all together today.

I am on edge. I am sad. I am tense. Today I will try to relax and help myself. The sun is shining and the sky is clear blue. Patsy is toasting on the radiator again. I stayed up until 2 am last night. Restricting sleep was a method of treating depression in the days before psychopharmaceuticals. I am trying it. Maybe it will make a comeback, like leeches or cupping.

My left eye is twitching uncontrollably. It started last night. I wonder what it means.

There is a transit strike here in NYC. No subway, no buses. Good thing I did my holiday shopping yesterday.

Thinking about you here in SLC...hope you're enjoying a long nap right now (I know when I deprive my body of sleep I go a little cuckoo)...take care, k?

Twitching of fine muscles is a sign of magnesium deficiency. Do you also get twitching when you purse your lips to drink? If so, off with ye to a health food shop and buy some magnesium. 300mg/day should do.
