Energy of the Month

Aries [update for all links (February 4, 2104):  MOA T & A Glossary ] You won’t burn through all the moisture no matter how hot and bright you flash this month, so be your vibrant, electric self with aplomb and enjoy relative freedom from the constraints of propriety that often bind. Contrary to appearances, you’re feeling your way through as much as anyone else right now.

As a Gem/Lib/Gem  [updated link (February 4, 2014): MOA T & A Glossary ] she's a wordsmith by nature, but it was her attitude, her light that drew me. There was something in it I recognized. Time went along as it is wont to do and at some point we started talking off-list. I found her to be wise and open, not only able but willing to delve into any subject with zeal and veracity, contradicting me when she felt the need as freely as she supported me where we agreed. Time continued going on as we explored our respective lives, sharing amazing likenesses and fascinating differences, learning and growing along the way often by leaps and bounds. Time came when there wasn't as much time for either of us and things went quiet a while, with just the occasional, "
