Easter Myrtle

Easter Myrtle
According to some discussion on the meaning of Easter
Adonis was allegorically the child of Myrrha — who later became the
Myrtle tree.  Loved by both Aphrodite and Persephone,
arguments ensued, and were eventually resolved for Adonis to spend
4 months of the year with each of them, and the rest
how he chose.  Adonis chose to spend these months with
Aphrodite, the goddess of love.  In the wheel of seasons,
spring brings rebirth, after the darkness of winter.  In this
way, it can be seen that metaphorically, everything is
experienced, even in the choices of Adonis.  He chooses love
over grief, even though he has experienced its real pain.  The endless
cycle of change results in a rounded maturity, borne out of
letting go of what is old, and reaffirming life and love, the
spirit of renewal, and living, regardless.
Yet all humanity’s
phases don’t always co-incide with the seasons.  For this reason,
it’s interesting to note the above archetypes can serve for any
time, provided their meaning is known.  There can be
sadness at rebirth time, like Easter, or happiness in the
dark of Winter, the usual time of deep inward-looking solitude.
Like the tides, the archetyes can shift and change, as
people learn about them and capture the wisdom they
teach, so rather than static, crusty old ideas, these
ideas seem able to shift with humanity’s needs, ever
being renewed. 
So Easter is the time for renewal, coming
to the southern hemisphere as autumn and harvest,
and to the northern, as spring and rebirth.  Easter symbols
are rabbits or hares for fertility, eggs for rebirth and the
collective humanity.  It is traditionally timed in line with the full moon
and the equinox, throughout most parts of the world, and in
this way is a shifting, evolving celebration.  In this way, change
is a constant, and old patterns and ways are discarded to keep
up with the new.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Easter season!

Gift for Edith

with 2 comments

Of all the legends of the Emerald Isle,
the most enticing is that of Loycha –
save that you can only go there alone
and ever leave your loves and dreams at home.

So I gift to thee a magic feather
plucked slyly from a Myrddin Falcon wing
that you may be in twain a shape-shifter
in form and spirit and divine embrace.

Divest thyself of earthly mothered bonds
while cleaving still to fond hearth and pledge,
and entrance the dancing maiden within
to dwell in Loycha’s pollened mists again.

of course, you must tell us of the trip …

Birthday Bash for Edith

with 5 comments


I am not sure what is in the Lemurian Waters Edith darling
But it is your birthday and Enchanteur is right in to the party mood

Is that her looking shocked with the shocking red head dress
or has she put on her glasses to stop the glare?
is she the meek and mild angelic one
or is that her dancing in her birthday suit?

She is one and all
A dazzling shapeshifter
Come to make it a day to remember.

A Midsummer Night’s Eve

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A dreamy evening in midsummer when moonlight works its magic on a wooded scene and creatures and humans take on magical forms. See the fairies flitting above spreading their bewitching dust.

I created this piece in fabrics of shaded black and white stripes with figures and moon from shadowed batik. Beaded fringe hangs from the bottom. A shaggy black trim forms the tree tops and oil pastels shadow the figures, tree trunk, and moon.
