the Bee's Knees
the lovely and inspiring Bellisimama "Bee" from Bonfire of my Vanity, sent me a sweet package in the mail!
with flowy blouses...
and a goddess pendant.
all perfect little items to help enjoy a fall day outside with my rambunctious cats.
feeling very goddessy in this slinky golden blouse, which is perfect because it came from a powerfully goddessy woman! i once took an african-caribbean dance class and learned about orishas, powerful dieties from ancient Yoruba spiritual practices.
we each chose a diety that we resonated with and did a presentation about him/her.
our teacher told us to pay special attention to items that are gifted to us. i realized that often people give me things that are yellow or golden, the color that is associated with Oshun. she also loves mirrors, peacock feathers (my earrings i wore with this blouse before i even remembered about Oshun!) pumpkins, and honey. some of my very favorite things. especially in October.
happy day to you all!
