Lemurian City of Ladies

A Lemurian City Built in Memory of Christine de Pizan

Baba, Imogen, Belenus & Orlando Non Furioso

with 7 comments

It was after the visit to Baba Yaga that Belenus, the intellect-ruled donkey, changed forever.  And this was not because there was anything wrong with him, but because he wanted it that way.  Metamorphosis brought him to a Villa on the outskirts of the City of Ladies, in Cyberia, where he paints the bright pots he makes from rich clay, in his pottery studio in the ancient ways.  Had he been human, his name would have been like that of the famous knight of the ancient tales, so angry had he grown about the world, and only relying on the intellect.  Yet, now he was human, by transformation.  Daily he uncovers ancient treasures from the earth, and uses his hands to create, the thing he envied his very good friend Imogen Crest for.  His Villa is known to change colours with the weather, and sometimes with the mood he is in.  And of course, Imogen has lost none of her affection for him, residing as she does in her Hermitage Villa in the City of Ladies, closeby, and following her dreams of the intellect and the heart.

  3. Thanks Fran! I am sure Belenus will turn up again but he will never be the same! Okay, Lori, I’ve got the cakes and fine cognac out and no doubt Heather will drop by for a spell. A good one, that is:-) Anyone else is welcome, too;-)
