Unhappy Campers

These hapless Ohioans are vacationing in Florida. They don't seem to be enjoying themselves tremendously. I don't think they are dressed for the occasion. The sand would get in those shoes, it seems, and present quite an irritating problem. I'd better not invite them to a party at Raging Universe. Who knows what they'd wear.

LOL, jm! Cleveland Sunbirds, maybe? There are a ton of them down there during this time of year. Maybe they look that way because it's been so cold and dreary up here in Ohio this winter that they don't quite know how to react to the sunny Floridian weather? They still need to thaw out!

That's not me, of course. I can deal with sunshine anytime! :-)

Although there are a few natal charts for it, I've always felt that Cleveland in general is a very Earthy/Capricornian town. Just my kind of place in a lot of ways. They just need to cut loose from all that Saturnesque energy once in awhile. It gets pretty stuffy and stubborn at times. ;-)

AHahhah! My mom the capricorn grew up in Cleveland. I guess she really liked it. As children we thought there was a semi-paradise called Cleveland (although the river did catch fire once in awhile tho...) I think you are right with the attribution :)!

Hi Tseka!! I'm still working on Arizona. Now talk about sunshine! Lots and lots of sunshine! I love it there. But moving seems have slipped to my longer range plans for the moment. I'm still holding down the fort here in Ohio--for the time being.

It was in the fourties here today, and the Sun was shining. It almost felt like Spring! Not quite Phoenix or Tampa Bay, but not bad either, considering what we've been through this winter!

Juno, you are right. The river did catch fire, twice I believe! That's how polluted the poor Cuyahoga River was. That was probably the lowest point for Cleveland's image, when we were embarrassingly known as "the mistake on the lake".

Thankfully, the city and surrounding communities have cleaned it up quite a bit. I still don't know if I would go swimming or fishing in it, but it seems the Cuyahoga River and Valley have greatly benefitted from our growing awareness about our environment and its pricelessness.

The whole region has more recently chipped in to restore the old Erie Canal towpaths near the river, which have become a dream for biking, hiking and just general taking-in of nature. A real hidden treasure and one of our finest assests. At least we've learned from our mistakes!

neo, I gave it some thought after we talked about your nodes. The NN in the 4th is about family and home. I think it would be just fine to stay where your roots are close to your family. The past and connectedness would be a good feeling, especially with your Cancer rising.

If you can slowly edge away from politics, the world will look different. Even Ohio!

I happen to like Ohio, and I don't know why.

Or maybe you can lean into more local involvement (mentally), another good thing with Cancer, and help in positive ways.

The only antidote to the sad national and worldwide situation is positive action, and a lot of people are always doing it. I can't look at the arena anymore, and it's really always been like this. But the parks and all have survived too.

I live in a big city, but in preserved wild land next to a 70 mile bike and walking trail. It's incredible to have all the stimulation of the town, which my Gemini likes, and still the peace of nature. This is what we need to do with our cities as much as possible.
