Still…alive and kicking!

Hello everyone!

I know that I’ve been silent for months and many of you were asking me if the blog will continue, ext. Well, blog will certainly continue to exist, only the format might change. After my initial hand injury (that still stops me to write as much as I want), some other writing and research opportunities arose. At that moment I had to make priority at which direction will I devote my time and energy. To be more precise, I am doing research assignments in collaboration with St Trinity University in Wales in fields of cultural astronomy and astrology. Well, if you have ever read this post – essentially it means that since I have so many interests (and with injured hand), for me is quite exhausting to be equally present everywhere the way I want to be. I’m still doing coaching with my students so there’s little time for everything I want to accomplish.

The interesting happening with this research is that it is a kind of dream come true for me – combining astronomy, geology, astrology with mythology was something I always strived to do. Additionally, some branches of research will dive into cultural aspects of how people perceive sky, cosmos especially in their art, writing and poetry! How exciting! I wanted to share with all of you these novelties as I think it will deeply influence every aspect of my life, so does my writing and this blog. I have many new interesting ideas that I want to implement and I hope my health situation will allow me to do so.

I will all keep you posted with new developments and there is certainly chance for you to participate (and in such way promote your poetry and blog).I will give my best to be more regular on businessinrhyme as I do miss my poetry writing and reading your beautiful poems.

Hugs,

Maja

Conjunction

She slowly travels towards destined ninth house

where Mercury peacefully waits for Jupiter to arrive

in peregrine flight, exalted in graceful detriment

of opposing stone monolith in the third,

(wanting to return in second)

strong, but humble in the waiting room

of offspring stars breast-fed by the ever-giving moon
