horology

3

Today I took my first horology class. The teacher and the others students are nice old people and it was really exciting. During the first months, we’ll work with comtoise clocks*, then mantel clocks, then I don’t know, then pocket watches. By July, I could even be able to make some automatons yay!

*Their production began in 1680, by farmers in eastern France, during winter. At first they had only one hand (for the hours) and were pretty accurate - well, less than a sundial but, you know, having this new time-thingy technology at home, what a delight! - and very solid.
Soon they became very popular and unique, as artisans liked to custom and “complicate” them, even if they remained rather cheap. People often offered them as wedding gifts and, since they were robust, they were inherited by the next generations.
In the XIXth century, about 60,000 of these clocks were made each year, and well exported. Then *poof*, their production stopped in 1915. A kind of revival took place between the 1970′s and 2010, something like 12,000 made each year; nowadays, they’re collector’s stuff.

(and other bad advice)

aries: light candles. burn bridges and pumpkin scented candles with the same match. burn all the rotten residue. enjoy life without the hecklers.

taurus:  when you trick-or-treat, they will say you are too old. you have always been too old. you are old as the earth and it creaks in your bones

gemini: bitter black brew. it is the deadliest poison. drink, drink until you’re sick, until your eyes are sunken in your skull. add sugar and cream first. 

cancer: you can’t keep yourself in the same closet as your skeletons. unless you are a skeleton. if so, sort the bones. find a better place to bury them. 

leo: jump in a pile of leaves. take a moment to sink under the pile, in peace. sink, sink deeper and darker. let the ground take you. make friends there. 

virgo: what’s better than an over-sized sweater? bury yourself in knit cable sweaters. keep knitting. build yourself a cave of comfort. don’t build a way out.

libra: double-cross the monster under your bed. buy bunk beds. tuck them in at night. everything’s a monster with bags under its eyes.

scorpio: bite your tongue. drink the blood. go see a doctor. tear the stitches out and redo them yourself. what, weren’t you going to do that anyway?

sagittarius: you can’t apologize for the beast the full moon made of you. but the one you became during the crescent moon did some fucked up shit bro.

capricorn: take down your hair, take off your glasses, shed your skin, go deep into the woods, lurk in the dark. it’s time there was a monster to fear.

aquarius: cold, cold hands. blue and veined. kiss mysterious girls and average men in doorways. what happens to them after is not of your concern.

pisces:  some flowers only bloom in the winter. wreath yourself in frost, breathe mist into the air. they never told you ghosts haunt themselves first.
