- Excerpt From: T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land.”
I tend to prefer to use Shakespeare’s canon for an introduction, I was sawing my way through the Eliot’s “The Waste Land” again, and I caught this bit as introduction for this week. Welcome to Sagittarius.

Sagittarius: There’s a literary detective, or maybe it’s just cozy little murder-mysteries, but anyways, the main character, I won’t give out his name, the main character, the detective, he buys flowers as part of the first scene’s set-up. Not to give it away, but the bouquet has much to do with the how long the story will take to resolve. Not unlike my own experience with store-bought flowers, which, in my examples, have lasted anywhere from two days to two weeks, the mystery that is solved, the end of the tale is when the flowers are dead and carried to the waste bin. Recycling would be in keeping with the times, but whatever. One story is the length of a single rose bud, and I’ve seen those things go in as little as two days. Which was about right, as he worked for 48 hours to solve the one case, doing so, without giving it away, with a little bit of “Deus Ex Machina” solution, if you ask me. But no one did. Murder Mystery, flowers, and the start of Sagittarius, what’s this mean? It’s a good week. We have something starting, like fresh cut flowers might last a while or might not last long. Up to you, Sagittarius, like the author of that series? You’re in charge.
Sorry, all I could think about, a kid’s game. Just a simple version of tag. The person who is “it” has to chase the other players. When another player is tagged, then that player becomes the one who chases. Chased and chaser.
