New Lexington YMCA center opens


After years of planning, discussion and construction, the new YMCA at Hamburg Place opened its doors on Halloween. At the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 24, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray called the facility and the dedication behind it “incredibly inspiring” and said it reflects the commitment made by the YMCA of Central Kentucky and the public. “People are what makes Lexington special —our citizens,” Gray said. At the ribbon cutting, U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, KY-6, said the mission of the YMCA is a reflection of what private citizens can accomplish when helping others. “There is no better example, (the YMCA) is so proud to help the mind and soul of the community.” Because of its proximity to Interstate 75, Barr said the impact of the new YMCA will extend well beyond Hamburg. “This is easily accessible from Mount Sterling, Winchester as well as eastern Kentucky,” Barr said. The YMCA as an asset to the community was the theme of the ceremony. Harry Richart III, former chair of the Commerce Lexington board of directors, said the new YMCA will be a fixture in the future of Lexington and will stand as a monument to the generosity and a commitment to civic improvement. “This is about the maturing and quality of life in Lexington,” Richard said. “ People like (The) Whitaker (family) giving back that makes a place like this happen.” Elmer Whitaker, CEO of Whitaker Bank, whose family name will adorn the building, said his father was committed to helping others. Elmer Whitaker said the influence of the new YMCA will touch the lives of many other people beyond those who simply work and play there. “It will be a gathering spot for the community and the spirit of community is built around families,” Elmer Whitaker said. Behind the scenes YMCA of Central Kentucky President and CEO David Martorano said the need for a facility like this was obvious as Hamburg continues to expand and develop. “For more than 160 years, the YMCA of Central Kentucky has strengthened the fabric of our community by focusing on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility,” Martorano said. “Whether it’s connecting with friends, spending time as a family, or overcoming physical limitations, the Y has been the cornerstone of many of our lives and has been the foundation upon which countless goals have been set and achieved.” With three established and thriving Lexington locations, Hamburg was the largest area of Lexington/Fayette County not being served by a YMCA. Martorano said “I can’t think of a better location more perfectly suited to serve an area of our community which previously did not have a Y presence.” Although the YMCA of Central Kentucky has invested millions in the project, Martorano said a dollar figure doesn’t reflect the true investment. “All in we’re right around $16MM invested on this project...But the financials don’t begin to tell the story of the thousands of lives which will be impacted by the generosity of people like the Whitaker family as well as other community stakeholders.” As plans moved forward, the YMCA reached out to the public for suggestions and recommendations. Martoranos

Bottom right: The three-deck water slide is one of the highlights of the new facility. said the decisions were made with “the thoughtful input given to us by the residents of the Hamburg community based on their needs for how the Y could make a positive impact now and in the future.” The community may be impressed with the results. The 70,000 square foot YMCA includes a 10,000-squarefoot wellness center, a youth development wing, an aquatic complex including indoor slides and an outdoor sprayground, three studios for group exercise classes, a multi-functional wellness area, full-size gymnasium and a three-lane walking/running track. For the people behind the new facility, the impact on the community extends well beyond fun and fitness.

“We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable,” Martorano said. “At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus.” That impact is designed to touch many future generations. “We have an opportunity to enhance the quality of life in our community,” Martorano said. “… you can be assured that whatever activity your family or your child engages in – from afterschool to family time to sports to camp – you’ll have a safe, positive setting to play, learn and grow.”

Chef Tom dishes up memories and tips

Talkin’ Turkey with Tom BY TOM YATES What makes up our Thanksgiving traditions? The food? Our memories? Our families? My Thanksgiving traditions got off to a slow start. I don’t recall ever celebrating Thanksgiving in Europe as a child. Frau Olga wouldn’t have thought to roast a turkey. It wasn’t her tradition. She was simply happy to be alive and thankful to have escaped communist controlled Czechoslovakia to live safely with our family in Vienna. That was something to be thankful for. Was it worthy of a beautifully browned roasted turkey? Hardly. Never happened. Crispy fried schnitzel with cups of garnished consomme, maybe. Turkey? Not a chance. After a few years in Austria, we moved to Africa. We were housed on an army base surrounded by 20’ concrete walls topped with swirling barbed wire to protect us from phantom enemies. Hot and sandridden, it was a far cry from the Black Forest of Vienna. Ababa, my Ethiopian nanny, was bussed onto the army base every day (from the other side of the concrete wall) to care for our family. She lived a very simple sparse life, but was always joyous, content, and thankful to have a job. I worshiped her. Although she loved us dearly, we wouldn’t have asked her to roast a turkey for Thanksgiving. Doro Wat with injera bread? Yep. Turkey? In Africa? Nope. My Thanksgiving traditions started building after my father retired from the army and we moved to Western Kentucky to live with my grandparents on their farm. Their farmhouse was perched on a hill, overlooking rolling fields, white picket fences, oil wells, and trees. With a hen house teetering against a rickety smokedham shed, frightening roosters freely roaming the grounds, and aggressive herds of cattle stampeding at whim, their farm was fascinating and horrifying. Because my grandmother spent every summer canning everything from her garden, her cellar housed what she needed for her part of the family Thanksgiving feast: canned green beans, dusty canned tomatoes, creepy twisted potatoes, bright fluorescentgreen lime pickles, murky bread and butter pickles, and grayish canned corn. Even with a bountiful cellar, our family Thanksgiving dinners were potluck affairs at my grandparent’s house. Like clockwork, the extended family arrived toting all kinds of food. Her long kitchen counter would be lined end to end with our traditional

family feast. All the food was grouped by likeness. The beige section featured stuffings, dressings, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn pones, biscuits, yeast rolls, and several varieties of ground beef laden baked beans topped with sticky sweet gooey bacon. The green category consisted mostly of Campbell’s Soup casseroles. Different versions of green bean and broccoli casseroles were lined up side by side as if they were to be judged for a county fair. Occasionally, an “other” casserole made an unexpected appearance. At the farthest end of her kitchen counter, near the fresh lemonade, assortments of green, orange, red, and yellow gelatin

scooped them out with righteous ferver. Four years after we moved to Kentucky, my father married Marge. Our families merged into a blended family. Marge was a sophisticated townie who cooked beautifully. She brought her family’s Thanksgiving traditions to our table. They were much different than my grandmother’s traditions. Much different. Marge awoke very early on Thanksgiving mornings. She’d don her blue and white polka-dotted dress with matching navy heels and coordinating apron. Methodically, she would prepare our Thanksgiving meal from start to finish. From scratch. She never stressed, gliding through the kitchen like

salads jiggled with crazy varieties of nuts, marshmallows, coconut, canned fruit, and whipped cream. They glowed from the sunlight streaming through the lone kitchen window. Every year, the Thanksgiving turkey was prepared by our designated turkey-cooking aunt. She baked it overnight in a very low oven for 14 hours. A very, very low oven. It was tender and moist, but never brown. There wasn’t a hint of beautifully browned turkey skin. Was it moist and tender? Yes. Was it pretty? Uh, no. The giblet gravy was the highlight of the meal for me. I was crazy about the hard boiled eggs suspended in thick brown gravy dotted with tender sliced livers, gizzards, and hearts. Being an offal kind of kid, I loved that stuff. While everyone else picked around the organs, I

Giselle sans Albrecht. She’d dirty every dish in the kitchen, plate everything on my mother’s bone china serving platters, and graciously place the food around the table. After closing the kitchen doors to shield the unyielding mess, she’d come to the table with such relaxed ease and precision, you’d have thought the entire meal had been prepared and air-dropped by the military. I admired that. She was my hero. Marge made a killer turkey. Deeply roasted, tender, and moist. When sliced, the skin crackled. I’d never seen or tasted anything like it. Her wonderful dressing, moist with crunchy edges, was equalled only by her smooth and rich giblet gravy dotted with organs and eggs. Creamed pearl onions (made with jarred Aunt Nellie onions), scalloped oysters, broccoli

casserole, whipped potatoes, mashed yellow squash, and old school stuffed celery rounded out her meal. Without apology, she served sliced canned cranberry sauce over iceberg lettuce topped with dollops of mayonnaise. Betty Crocker elegant. I adored it. After the china had been carefully hand washed, she’d gently pour hot steaming coffee into tiny delicate mismatched porcelain cups and serve it with pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and Breyer’s Chocolate Chip Mint ice cream. The routine never changed. It was Thanksgiving. After Marge passed away, we continued our family Thanksgiving traditions. My father insisted on it. Everything stayed the same. It had to. We kept her memory alive with our food (her food) for 7 years until my father died. I haven’t been back for Thanksgiving since my father passed away, but it warms me to know that my family keeps their traditions alive in various towns with their expanded families and new generations. Memory making. Tradition building. Nowadays, we spend our day wrapped in flannel pajamas, cocooned from the world, drinking bloody marys and screwdrivers. We leisurely cook all day, happily enjoying the anticipation of our meal. Just the two of us, bringing our individual family traditions together on Thanksgiving day. Over the years, I’ve prepared our Thanksgiving turkeys every way imaginable; brined, herbed, larded with bacon, stuffed, unstuffed, and bagged. I’ve never ventured into world of deep fried turkey. The notion of deep frying a whole turkey in 1000 degree oil on our wooden deck next to our 130 year old wooden house makes me shiver. Nope. Although the standards remain the same, we change things a bit up every year. I now use fresh pearl onions instead of jarred Aunt Nellie onions, creamed with soft melted brie, heavy cream, fresh nutmeg, and sherry. Either fresh oysters on the half shell or Oysters Rockefeller have replaced the familiar scalloped oysters.

How to Roast with Bacon I was at the Farmer’s Market on a cool gray morning with low hanging clouds spitting a damp mist, and I was practically the only one there. I stopped by Bray’s Farm stand to chat with a friend. It was far from


“The beige section featured stuffings, dressings, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn pones, biscuits, yeast rolls, and several varieties of ground beef-laden baked beans topped with sticky sweet gooey bacon. The green category consisted mostly of Campbell’s Soup casseroles. Different versions of green bean and broccoli casseroles were lined up side by side as if they were to be judged for a county fair. “ ideal market weather, but I picked up a few ripe yellow peaches. After passing by familiar vendors on the way to my car, it happened. While marveling over wonderfully aromatic individually-bundled baby celery stalks from Elmwood Farm, I reached across the table and grabbed an acorn squash from a heaping basket. At that very moment, I crossed the line. I officially surrendered my lusty desires for vibrant fresh summer produce, replacing them with more languid yearnings for mellow soft-hued autumn flavors. Until then, I’d resisted the temptation by clinging to the final bright vestiges of summer. I finally acquiesced. Inspired by that humble acorn squash, I was ready to roast a turkey. Well ... kind of. A dear friend recently gave us a pound of gorgeous bacon from her family’s farm. After unfurling the bacon from its Not For Sale packaging, I overlapped several strips of the bacon on parchment paper before plopping a three pound boneless turkey breast on top of the bacon shingles, seasoning it with fresh rosemary, salt, and pepper. I carefully pulled the bacon slices around the turkey breast, secured it with kitchen twine, and placed the larded breast into a roasting pan along with wedged candy onions and whole baby celery stalks. I sprinkled additional fresh rosemary, salt, and pepper over the bacon harness, poured a cup of chicken stock into the roasting pan, and slid the bacon-bundled turkey into a 350 degree oven to roast for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the internal temperature was 165 degrees. While the turkey made merry in the oven, I sliced the acorn squash into quarters and removed the seeds. After seasoning it with salt, pepper, and olive oil, I slid the squash into the oven to par-roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes before pulling it out and dousing it with butter, brown sugar, orange zest, freshly squeezed orange juice, and fresh thyme sprigs. I covered the squash with aluminum foil and placed it back into the oven to roast/ braise for an additional 45 minutes. When the sqaush was thoroughly cooked, I pulled it from the oven and let it warm on the

- Chef Tom stovetop while the turkey finished roasting. The aromas wafting from our kitchen were ridiculous. Turkey. Bacon. Rosemary. Brown sugar. Squash. Heaven. Eventually, I pulled the turkey from the oven and checked the temperature .I tented the turkey and let it rest for ten minutes. Before slicing the turkey, I removed it to a cutting board, placed the roasting pan over medium heat, added a pinch of flour, and whisked together a quick pan sauce from the roasted turkey and bacon drippings. Using the bacon slices as a guide, I sliced the turkey into medallions, drizzled them with pan gravy, and feathered fresh rosemary leaves over the top. I dropped the candied squash around the turkey and spooned the salad into small bowls, nestling them onto our plates. The turkey was incredibly moist and tender with succulent juices trapped and sealed within the crispy bacon skin. While the bacon provided salty crunch, the oozing buttery sweet roasted acorn squash balanced it with soft earthy undertones. It’s a new season at the market. One I’ll embrace with open arms.

How to Brine and Lacquer a Turkey Even a mild brine plumps a bird with moisture and flavor. Bolstered by the abundance of local apple cider, I got apple happy. After warming 14 cups Evans Orchard apple cider in a large stock pot over a medium flame, I added 1 1/2 cups Country Rock sorghum, 1 1/2 cups Buffalo Trace bourbon, 6 cups water, 3 tablespoons black peppercorns, 3 bay leaves, 6 whole garlic cloves, 4 sprigs lemon thyme, and 1 cup kosher salt. When the sugar dissolved into the mix, I pulled the brine from the heat and added 6 cups of ice to cool the brine. I lined a clean bucket with a large plastic bag and carefully poured the cooled brine into the bag. After thoroughly rinsing a 12 pound all natural Amish turkey, I plunged it into the brine, placed a plate over the turkey to keep it submerged, tied the plastic

bag together, and slid the turkey into the refrigerator to brine for 24 hours.


I needed a shallow pan to allow the legs and thighs of the turkey to be exposed to as much circulating heat as possible, so I used a shallow (2” deep) hotel pan. It was deep enough to hold the needed vegetables and liquid, but shallow enough for even heat distribution. I pulled the turkey from refrigerator, disposed of the brine, rinsed the turkey under cold running water, patted it dry, and set it aside. For an added flavor boost, I combined 2 sticks softened unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage, 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary, 2 tablespoons chopped thyme, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley before smearing it over the entire turkey. Using the tips of my fingers to loosen the skin from the flesh, I carefully slathered the remaining herbed butter under the skin of the breasts, thighs, and legs. After stuffing the cavity with sliced apples, onions, rosemary, sage, and thyme, I tied the legs together with kitchen twine. In lieu of a rack, I placed celery stalks and large unpeeled carrots into the hotel pan and positioned the buttered turkey onto the vegetables before scattering 6 whole garlic cloves, 3 quartered red candy onions, and 4 peeled Winesap apples to the side. After adding 2 cups chicken stock, 1 cup apple cider, and 1 cup bourbon to the pan, I slid the turkey into a preheated 350 oven. To baste or not to baste? I’m a baster. As long as the turkey is cooked to the correct temperature (internal temp 165 deepest part of the thigh), why not bathe the skin with the reduced fatty pan drippings? Basting the turkey roughly every 30 minutes, I covered the breast with foil after 1 hour to prevent over-browning and continued to baste while checking the internal temperature every 45 minutes or so.


I’m a sucker for a glaze. It’s all about balance. After reducing 2 cups apple cider by half, I added 3/4 cups sorghum, 3 tablespoons

soy sauce, 1/2 cup bourbon, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I lowered the heat and let the glaze bubble away until it was the consistency of...well... sorghum. So, think of it as an amplified boozy apple cider-infused sweet and tart version of sorghum.


When the turkey reached an internal temperature of 155 degrees (about 2 hours), I started painting every inch of the exposed skin and flesh with the molten sticky glaze. When the turkey hit 165 degrees, I blasted to heat to 450 degrees, gave the bird a final slather, and popped it back into the oven to burnish the skin before pulling the turkey from the oven to rest for 30 minutes. After reducing the strained pan drippings into a highly seasoned jus, I nestled the brushed mahogany lacquered turkey onto fresh greenery, feathered sage, and fresh bay leaves. Full on savory, the apple cider and sorghum didn’t blast the turkey into a candied sugar bomb. The bold double punch of brine and glaze combined to promote succulent, moist, and tender meat. While the bourbon added mellow smoky vanilla undertones, the acidic bolt of the apple cider vinegar tempered the fruity cider and soft bittersweet earthiness of the caramelized sorghum. Perfect. Thanksgiving. Lacquered up.


e haven’t planned this year’s

Thanksgiving meal ... yet. Whether we go old school, new school, or somewhere in between, the food will taste like home and remind us of all our Thanksgivings, families, and traditions. The two of us will sit in our pajamas at my parents’ long dining room table, eat from my mother’s beautiful wheat-patterned German bone china, pray our blessings, enjoy a few glasses of wine, and eat our Thanksgiving meal. Chef Tom’s food column appears on page 11 of every Ace, and at where he’ll be sharing more holiday traditions in the coming weeks.

It’s all about


the sides

BY TOM YATES We all have our favorite side dishes that absolutely must accompany roasted turkey on our Thanksgiving tables. For many of us, those familiar flavors are steeped in deeprooted family traditions. Last year, my sister-in-law invited us over for a family Thanksgiving meal. As any dutiful invited guest should do, I asked what we could bring to the feast. She requested brussels sprouts. Specifically, creamy blue cheese brussels sprouts with bacon, a dish she’d fallen head over heels for at an area restaurant. Interesting prospect. While we love brussels sprouts, I’d never thought about serving them at Thanksgiving. That changed when we took our little show on the road over the hills and through the woods toting a restaurant riff on those beloved brussels sprouts. Everyone loved them, even the skeptical self-proclaimed brussels sprouts haters. With sweet sherry undertones tempering the soft pungency of the melted blue cheese, the earthy sprouts didn’t compete or overpower the traditional food on the table. Their eccentric oddity actually complimented the familiar tastes of Thanksgiving. An accidental win. It’s funny, while I love brussels sprouts prepared just about any way possible, that particular method (with some tweaks and variations) has been my go-to preparation for them since that Thanksgiving day.

Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Gorgonzola Cream and Prosciutto Seriously, they were so simple and quick to throw together. Perfect for a busy food day. Or even a lazy late night snack. I clipped the root ends off of a pound of fresh brussels sprouts and sliced them in half. After heating vegetable oil in a large skillet over a medium high flame until it started to smoke, I carefully placed the brussels sprouts, cut sides down, into the sizzling oil. When they started to caramelize, I showered them with salt and cracked black pepper before flipping them over in the skillet to sear on the other side. After adding a scant tablespoon of minced shallots, I deglazed the pan with 1/4 cup sherry combined with 1/4 cup chicken stock, covered the skillet, and let the sprouts steam for 3 minutes before removing the lid to reduce the stock. When the last drop of sherry-infused stock evaporated into an airy wisp, I added 1 cup heavy cream and 4 ounces of sliced gorgonzola cheese. Within minutes, the pungent thickened cream enveloped the pan-roasted sprouts. Although that could have been enough, I took it one step further. I spooned the creamy sprouts into buttered gratin dishes, crumbled additional gorgonzola cheese over the sprouts, and slid them under a flaming broiler. I pulled the gratins from the oven to calm the bubbling charred cheese before finishing with snipped chives and ovencrisped prosciutto crumbles. Unconventional. Unexpected. A perfect Thanksgiving party crasher.

Free Will Astrology

By Rob Brezsny

ARIES (March 21-April 19): I am in awe of your headfirst, charge-forward, no-distractions approach. In fact, I aspire to incorporate more of the Aries-style directness into my own repertoire. But I also love it when, on rare occasions, you flirt with a more strategic perspective. It amuses me to see you experimenting with the power of secrets. Your wisdom often grows at an expedited rate when you get caught up in a web of intrigue that exposes you to dark joys and melodramatic lessons. During times like these, you feel fine about not having everything figured out, about not knowing the most straightforward route to your destination. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I am pleased to inform you that at least 30 percent of what you think you know about love and lust is too prosaic. Probably too narrow and constrained, as well. But here’s the good news: As soon as you agree to relinquish the dull certainty of that 30+ percent, you will open yourself to a surge of fresh teachings. And soon, I expect, dewy throbs and hot flows will awaken in all the erotic parts of your body, including your heart and brain and soul. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Over the last two decades, well-meaning Westerners have donated a profusion of clothes to low-income folks in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. Kind and magnanimous, right? Yes, but their largesse has had an unintended consequence: the demise of the textile industry in those African countries. With this as a cautionary tale, I’m asking you to take inventory of your own acts of benevolence and charity. Are they having effects that you approve of? If not completely, how could you adjust the way you give your gifts and bestow your blessings? CANCER (June 21-July 22): Is it possible that you might flourish as a top dog after all the work you’ve put in as an underdog? Can you wean yourself from the worried fantasy that you’ve got endless dues to pay, and then harness your imagination to expand your confidence and build your clout? I believe you can. And in the coming weeks I will unleash a flood of prayers to the Goddess of Holy Reversals, asking her to assist you. Now please repeat after me: “I am a creative force of nature. I am a strong song of liberation. I am a wise animal with direct access to my primal intelligence.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The next two weeks could be smooth, peaceful, and bland. Is that the experience you want? Mild satisfactions, sweet boredom, and slow progress? There’s nothing wrong with any of that. Please feel free to loll and loaf as you explore the healing charms of laziness. Grant yourself permission to avoid conflict and cultivate sunny self-protectiveness. This is one of those times when silence and stasis are among the best gifts you can give yourself. Welcome the rejuvenating power of emptiness! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s time to replace banged-up, dried-out old obsessions with ripe, juicy fascinations. It’s your duty to phase out numbing traditions and deadening habits so as to make room for exciting new rituals, customs, and sacraments. Can you summon the electric willpower to shed influences that are technically “correct” but lacking in soulfulness? I think you can. Do you love yourself enough to forswear pretty but meaningless titillations? I think you do. Now get out there and do the hard work necessary to bring more fun into your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Over the course of his or her life, the average British person says “Sorry” on over 90,000 occasions. The typical Libran Brit probably utters routine apologies upwards of 120,000 times. Libras from other countries may not reach that heady level, but many do specialize in excessive politeness. (I should know, as I have three planets in Libra in my natal chart.) But in accordance with the astrological indicators, I am authorizing you to be a bit less courteous and solicitous than usual in the next two weeks. Don’t go overboard, of course. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Until 2007, Scotland’s official slogan was “Scotland, the Best Small Country in the World.” Deciding that wasn’t sufficiently upbeat, the government spent $187,000 on a campaign to come up with something better. “Home of Golf” and “Home of Europe’s Fastest Growing Life Sciences Community” were among the proposed phrases that were rejected. The ultimate choice: “Welcome to Scotland.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because you’re in a favorable phase to rebrand yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I cheer you on as you attend to your difficult but holy duties. I send you my love as you summon the wisdom and resourcefulness you need to weather the gorgeous storm. Here are clues that might be useful: Whether you are partially or totally victorious will depend as much on the attitude you hold in your heart as on your outward behavior. Be grateful, never resentful, for the interesting challenges. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The coming weeks constitute the harvest phase of your personal cycle. That means you have the pleasure of gathering in the ripe rewards that you have been cultivating since your last birthday. But you also have the responsibility to answer and correct for any carelessness you have allowed to affect your efforts during the previous eleven months. Don’t worry, dear. My sense is that the goodies and successes far outnumber and overshadow the questionable decisions and failures. You have ample reasons to celebrate. But I hope you won’t get so caught up in your exaltation that you’ll neglect the atonements. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Like England and Spain, the Netherlands has a royal family, including a king, queen, prince, and princesses. They’re an egalitarian bunch. The young ones attend public schools, and the previous queen’s birthday is celebrated with a nation-wide flea market. The king’s crown is attractive but quite economical. Its pearls are fake, and other “jewels” are made of glass, colored foil, and fish scales. In accordance with the astrological omens, I propose that you create a regal but earthy headpiece for yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In her book, *A Natural History of the Senses,* Diane Ackerman reports on the eccentric methods that professional writers have used to galvanize their creative process. Poet Amy Lowell relaxed into her work day by puffing on Manila cigars. Novelist Colette plucked fleas from her cat. T. S. Eliot’s poetry thrived when he had a head cold. Novelist George Sand liked to jump out of bed after making love and immediately begin writing. Novelist William Gass, who is still among the living, wanders around outside taking photos of “rusty, derelict, overlooked, downtrodden” places. As for D. H. Lawrence: climbing mulberry trees naked energized his genius. What about you, Pisces? Now is an excellent time to draw intensely on your reliable sources of inspiration - as well as to seek new ones.
