If you live in England and your girlfriend is in Sicily, and it is clear you want to marry her, then you should walk to Sicily to propose. For these things travel by car or aeroplane is not the right thing.
Sacheen Littlefeather ~ Apache/Yaqui/Pueblo
Sacheen Littlefeather (born Marie Louise Cruz, November 14, 1946) is an American Indian civil rights activist. She is best known for presenting a speech on behalf of actor Marlon Brando, for his performance in The Godfather, when he boycotted the 45th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27, 1973, in protest of the treatment of Native Americans by the film industry. She wore an Apache dress on the occasion.
Lilith, the old woman who made her home in the bough of the huluppu tree, was considered to have been the first witch. Later, she was depicted in Sumerian art as a barren old woman with wings and taloned hands and feet; standing beside her were owls and lions. The owl symbol refers to her snatching babies at night. Also she seduced men while they slept and drank thereafter of their blood. To the Jews, she was Adam’s first wife. Isaiah 34:14 describes the day of vengeance: ‘The wild-cat shall meet with the jackals. And the satyr shall cry to his fellow; yea, Lilith [Liyliyth] shall repose there.’ The Greek Septuagint rendered Liyliyth into onokentamos, meaning ‘demon,’ whereas the Greek Aquila translation was Lilith. In Greco-Roman times Lilith was Lamia who lost her children and thereafter tore babies from their mothers’ arms. Medieval people’s emphasis on Lilith was as a snatcher of babies before baptism, thereby removing neonatals’ possibility of salvation. A German woodcut in 1470 shows Lilith with wings and a serpent tail offering an apple to Eve. This image connects evil with Lilith (partial serpent, babysnatching) evil, and the fall from Grace, all in one simple scene.
"There’s some line I read about the longing for the euphoria of forgotten childhood dreams. And [my childhood] was like a dream. Airplanes passed by slowly in the sky. Rubber toys floated on the water. Meals seemed to last five years and nap time seemed endless. And the world was so small. I can’t remember being able to see more than a couple of blocks. And those couple of blocks were huge. So all the details were blown out of proportion. Blue skies, picket fences, green grass, cherry trees. Middle America as it’s supposed to be. But on the cherry tree there’s pitch oozing out—some of it’s black, some of it’s yellow, and there are millions of red ants crawling all over it. I discovered that if one looks a little closer at the beautiful world, there’s always red ants underneath."
