Lemurian City of Ladies

A Lemurian City Built in Memory of Christine de Pizan

To My Dear Friends Back Home

I know you wonder what I’ve been doing since I left for the City of Ladies weeks and weeks ago


so far:


I’ve spent my days



and many a dark night

 wandering through the City of Ladies.


I’ve been in the Catacombs


of course.


 I think I was alone


I’ve even been to the Circus

where I learned a thing or two.





mostly one…



I’ve haunted bookshops and curiosity shops and art galleries sat in a Tavern and listened

to stories

and drank wine and nibbled on cheeses from

places with names I can’t pronounce

and I’ve even worn my hair up


dressed in gowns made from silk


from Pirate Ships



by candlelight while music was

played on harps and songs were sung by women named

Felicia, Prisicilla and Carlotta.


I must say though

that something is missing.

That something that makes the days just days and the nights only nights

and the grand sights I’ve seen

merely pictures that my eyes capture and store in my mind

just like

neatly lined photographs


a photo album that gets placed in a linen closet

or lost under a pile of


high on a shelf

gathering dust

in the dark



I wonder

what that missing thing could be…

 Oh yea.


That’s it.

What can I say?

There are

Songs to be sung and all that fun stuff!

More Later!

Love from

  3. I would have thought a Time Lord like this would have been lurking around somewhere here. You will be sure to find him on Rainbow Beach which is only a hop step and a jump away 🙂
