Episode 55- January 23, 2016

With two more days of Mercury in Retrograde, host Jennifer Ellsworth explains this astrological phenomena, and why you may be suffering a communication breakdown.  She also tells a true story about how she was lost in translation as an Italian exchange student, and reads a short story about a massage that affects the recipient in unanticipated ways.  It's called "Magic Touch."

"...If we’re going to tell the story, let’s be honest. Richard was fat. Of the had-not-seen-his-penis-in-years variety. Of the only-one-position-works-for-sex variety.   Of that, there had been very little- one week stretch, twenty years ago when he had fallen in with a distant cousin..."

Moon Astrology:  Full Wolf Moon in Leo:  Howl your heart out.

Planets as passing cars, La Piazza della Repubblica, and nighttime in the desert.

Humans vilify and worship wolves.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth explores how these canines inherited their own moon name.  She also tells a true story about an encounter with a Lone Wolf that wished she had a gun, and reads a poem about how her family falls asleep called "Wolf Stories."

"...Every night it's wolves....Nice friendly ones and bad ones...."

Moon Astrology:  New Wolf Moon in Capricorn:  Don't put off what you can do today.

It takes a village, Icelandic love and no more counting sheep.
