Fire

I awoke to this in my (virtual) mailbox today, from my friend Cz., who always knows what it is I need when I need it (I am blessed in friendship):

  1. That was a wonderful way to start the day.
    Found your blog through Elizabeth Aquino's blog.
    I love that quote from Thorton Wilder.

  2. You know, I didn't have time this morning to watch this, but I'm glad that I did. I love the yellow of the lady's dress and the way her eyebrows look like antennae when her face changed expression.

    Thank you --

  3. She's wearing Orisha Ochun's gold -- hummingbirds and bees are among this Orisha's 'things,' -- as she's the Orisha of Honey and all Sweet Things -- the orisha of glamor, of eroticism and romance (as well as the dark, inverse side of these things). She the youngest, the last of the Orishas to be born.

    Love, C.

  11. Foxessa, of course I had to do more reading on this Yoruba goddess that you've mentioned! It's a world of which I know nothing, and I thank you for pointing me to it. xo

  12. susan landry, yes, quite an extraordinary woman. I'd not known of her before my friend Cz. sent me the link for this. God I love the internet, and am in awe at how it expands our world.
