So many people push their dreams aside. Sometimes it's because they think the dream is silly, crazy or downright impossible to achieve. Sometimes it's because they worry about what other people will think. How about you? Why are you pushing your dream aside?⠀
Because it is possible to make your dream real. BUT first you need to believe in it enough to declare it. Now, you don't need to shout it from the rooftop or let the whole world know - saying it to yourself is a great place to start!⠀

Today in the shop I spent some of my time creating a first attempt at a piece of functional art I’ve wanted to add to my shop for a long time. It is such a wonderful bonus when my favorite customers write with ideas and requests that match up with things I’ve been wanting to create. That is exactly what happened here: a friend and collector wrote saying she’d dreamt about a trivet for her table. I set out to sketching some of the designs that had been in my head for her to choose from and here we are.
I covered the Maple with painter’s tape for two reasons: the tape’s adhesive lubricates the scroll saw’s fast moving blade reducing burn marks & it allowed me to sketch my design right on the piece. Lots of layers of pencil followed by a few passes with Sharpies and it was ready for a trip over to the drill press to make all those tiny pilot holes. Then on to the scroll saw’s cast iron table where each interior detail gets cut one at a time. To avoid wasting this beautiful wood, the hearts that are being cut out of this piece will be sanded and added into future bags of love.
What started as a "practice packing" is now me packed. My toiletries arent in that first pic, but they are in my bag now! I'm missing a handful of things that I wont be able to pack until day of, but I'm VERY proud of myself. I looooove organizing. Truly it's a sickness. Or a blessing. Thanks to everyone who gave outfit and packing tips!!!! #costaricayourenext#carryononly#internationallady#wanderlust#dreamsmadereal
Late night visions paired with an emotionally haunted morning make way for deeper levels of contemplation until late tonight when we shake it all off. A 1:08am (GMT-5) trine between our Scorpio Moon and Retrograde Neptune in Pisces pour fairy dust all over us, adding a healthy coat of the supernatural to our dreams. This betwixt magick is exactly what was needed for us to let down our guard and receive subconscious messages from the other side. Likewise, our morning has us feeling the echoes of these messages due to La Lune making a sextile with Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. Yes, the bones in our closet are rattling, but within that rattle is a song that will speak our truth back to us. Venus in Virgo will then oppose Retrograde Neptune in Pisces at 7:22am, reminding us that all work and no play makes us all irritable bitches. Let the hair down and hear the call of those natural forces within and without. Listen instead of controlling. Just before our evening ends, the Moon will enter Sagittarius at 11:08pm. Shifting from the Fixed/Receptive/Water of Scorpio into the Mutable/Projective/Fire of Sagittarius will help ignite our play and transmute these serious topics.
Physically, the large intestine, reproductive and sinus areas are being touched by mental/emotional themes. In Medical Astrology, I don’t work with the outer planets often because they represent the bridge between the physical and internal worlds, therefore it is hard to give a clinical description of their function. However, with Neptune and Pluto being at the forefront of these aspects, it seems as if our internal dynamic is the puppet master today. Continue to be observant of the gut with Virgo and Scorpio present, but also of lingering immune and skeletal themes brought on by our thoughts and feelings.

It’s #TBT! Check out the start of what would grow into “Laker Nation”. The August 1989 “Help Wanted” News Daily article above details our first president, Dr. Harry S. Downs, and #ClaytonState College’s search for the first Athletic Director.

CSU Students! As you are busy crafting that perfect fall course schedule online, take a quick look at how students back in 1970 stood in line to register for class and pay their fees in person at Clayton Junior College. Pictured above are former students from left to right: Jean Gillis, Brenda C. Battle, and Pam Burton as they discuss registering for spring classes with former registrar assistant Charlotte Singleton.
The Clayton State University #Archives welcomes you to campus during this 50th academic year of our institution’s existence. We look forward to celebrating this landmark year with “Laker Nation” by sharing jewels from the Archives’ vault, as #ClaytonState continues its’ mission of #DreamsMadeReal.
