Multifarious Day 4
No, I have no idea why my butt is aimed at the Celestial Temple. I chose this picture because it is the only one I have, which shows the setting for Deep Space Nine, my favorite Star Trek series.
25 Years of Star Trek: The Next Generation – My beloved Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has only been around since 1993, but today I send a witchy salute to Star Trek: The Next Generation lovers, for they are celebrating their 25th anniversary. Which is your favorite Star Trek spin off, my Luvs? Yes Penny dear, your Texan Zombie Goddess heart can choose Night of the Living Trekkies ;-)
Love Me Art-Fully – I hope you are ready for a little fire, a little color and a lot of art-full witchy love. Thanks so much everyone; there is no grater gift than to surround my life—and in some very special cases my altar—with your art and energy. Here is my altar and the goodies I’ve received lately:
|My summer altar; greet The Mother and The Wild God. (I really love all the reflections and shadows ;-)|
Now, to the gifts…

|“Fire” by Sandi – The Enchanted Garden|
|“Leonid” by Luna – A Wish in the Woods|
|“Midnight Dance” by Stacy – MagicLoveCrow|

Celebrate Oz Winner and Winnings – I wished for striped stockings and sparkly shoes, and I got them! With the witch still in them ;-) Thanks so much you Karen Anne. I love, love, love my ACEO.

I get to announce a winner, too. Before I do, I must quote Stacy and say, “I swear I didn’t cheat.” *sigh* The inspiration for “I’ve Dreamed of Deadly Poppy Fields” goes to Karen Anne. Yes, the same Karen Anne who blessed me with sparkly shoes and striped stockings. See why I said the bit about cheating? I guess Fate and Randomizer want to be funny. Congrats, my dear Karen Anne! Please email me your information. Um, I guess you can just reply to the message I sent you with my mailing information lol
|This is SunshineShelle’s dreamy work ;-)|
Fully Buttered – as you can see above, I’m quite partial to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, so when Gina suggested Star Trek as this week’s fully buttered prompt, I knew my creation would had to be about the Bajorans. They are the very religious alien race at the center of the DS9 series, and the guardians of the Orbs of the Prophets—artifacts that help people in the exploration of their spiritual selves. Like Christopher Jones points out in his article, “There’s an Orb for That...,” the Barjorans have orbs for just about anything one can think of; for prophecy and change, for contemplation, for wisdom, for memory, for truth, for souls, for destiny, for unity, for the emissary…
Well, after watching Deliver Us From Evil, a documentary that shows a very small group of brokenhearted Catholics going against the powerful members of a religious institution that uses faith to deceive communities, destroy lives, and to breed pedophilia, I decided to create The Orb of Dogma.
Words of the Week
(Words, like religions, assume the shape of the interpreter… but that doesn’t make them true)
Woman, n. of womb and man; the female of the human race; a female attendant or servant; to make pliant
Wife, n. The lawful consort of a man; a woman who is united to a man in the lawful bonds of wedlock; and in case you are wondering about the other side of the coin, here it goes: Husband, n. A man contracted or joined to a woman by marriage… an economist; a good manager; a man who knows and practices the methods of frugality and profit; the male of animals of a lower order. Um… huh? You don’t say… no, I mean it, you don’t say.
Religion, n. from religo, to bind anew… word seems originally to have signified an oath… to the gods
Slavery, n. Bondage; the state of entire subjection of one person to the will of another
Catholic, a. Liberal; not narrow-minded, partial, or bigoted. Jesus might approve, don’t you think?
(Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, 1861)

No husbands, religions or Catholics were harmed during the creation of this post.
