"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

The Dance

"Add to the need for clarification, another pattern focusing into exactness seven days into April. Neptune, planet of inspiration, unlimited creativity (a venture now shared with Haumea), spirituality, photographic and videographic aspirations, moves into opposition with Orcus, the other Pluto. Now Neptune can also refer to more insidious things, but for our purposes let’s only consider the addiction to emotional intensity. Now in Pisces, the thirst of Neptune for drama in the reactionary theater of life is huge. Orcus, an underworld ruler, maintains a very specific charge in overseeing oaths, promises, contracts and agreements. 
But back to personal stuff we care about... this pattern surfaces the “you said you would,” “you promised,” and most insidious and complicating, “you knew what I meant.” Under the present patterns, most like that last factor is a very huge assumption.

Bottom line, you cannot hold people to things they didn’t promise, imply, suggest or agree to support. You cannot hold people to being there for you, ringing your bell, stirring your pot, being an unfailing ear or meeting your needs, if your needs (or those dastardly wants) have never been articulated."
