Instinctual, I'm sitting here laughing at what Paul posted about going into court with a Batman suit and feathers. "Paul, that's ridiculous! Don't wear the batman suit, just the feathers...everyone knows that a Batman suit with Feathers is a fashion blunder....just Feathers."

Can you imagine Paul dressed as a big bird in court? But what would he be in court for? Stealing Bird seeds? Perhaps he's an expert witness to "fowl" play...

INSTINCTUAL, yes you're right about the name of that dish, she did say something like that. I don't know the name I just know that I LOVE THAT STUFF! It's delicious. And if I have the noodles I'm going to make some here soon.

Love and Peace to you...

I was thinking wasn't it Robin who said all the "holy ____ Batman!"
So Paul is already feathered, and does not need to go searching for better clothes.

I found this short shamanic blog on robins, "Holy Birds of Paradise, Batman! Maybe there's a message here for someone!":

Lots of pretty birds here T, some I'm not sure what they are but they make their nest out of mud. Also have meadowlarks, so many beautiful birds. I just love watching birds. Many different types of hummingbirds too.

And yes it was Robin who said all the Holy.....Batman stuff.

Good to see you here!

Love and Peace to you....thinking of you while I was picking fresh veggies today. I listened to the news today and more and more people are going straight to local farmers to purchase organic veggies. I learned a real good method for organic gardening...Leave some weeds in there they mimic other plants and the bugs will eat on them and leave the veggies alone...guess what? It really works.

What a hoot of a thread ... take your eye off the ball for a second and everything takes off !!

.... and I work near Harrods, Lori, but nearer to Selfridges, which also has a food hall ...

sorry if this has been said or its doing an eggs & grandmother thing - presume everyone knows the rason that robins have red breasts, allegedly, is because on perched on the Christ's shoulder on the cross and gave succour of some kind or another

Speaking for myself, I believe that i never speak nothing but the truth on the Board.

Then again, I could be living under a delusion. Or an illusion.

Or in a wood under the name of Sanders.

I am glad for anyone's enlightenment if things are seen contrary-wise.

Though admittedly, as St Paul said, 'for now we see through a glass darkly, but then we shall see face to face'.

i too speak the truth,i wouldn,t just be "glad" for anyone,s enlightenment you get that for free,doest thou know unless you,ve read well,not well read,i would ask forit,plain and simple,like life itself,it is us who make it difficult,now face to face is more honest and telling,its in the eyes,let god be the judge,no one else can claim that.

Interesting e-link Tracy, thanks.

In England, we also had Robin Hood, who some interpret symbolically as a shamanic 'wild man' of the woods, or 'woodwo'; and also Robin Goodfellow, a similar figure & then on to faery links, with Puck, who appears in Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare, as a primal spirit.

& its great being somehow associated with these themes, even if in our imaginations !

Concerned about the thought that people do not speak truth here, Iris...I feel sad about that...

Paul, never heard of Selfridges, but will check it out for sure...also, I may have an opportunity to visit your fair land in October..we shall see which way the wind blows!

Confused. Are we not speaking truthfully or should we be speaking more Truthfully, i.e. speaking about the Truth, a more metaphysical topic.

Please clarify for me.

thank you.

Hi Cara Bear, to clarify, I was feebly attempting to tell Iris that the fact that she thinks some of us here are not truthful makes me sad....that's all...

I hope that clears up any confusion...xoxoxo

Hope your day is a great one doll!

I couldn't manage courses, the Board, and work altogether - let alone having tiny wee bairns to manage also !

Selfridges is as big as Harrods, more or less, but slightly less expensive. On Oxford Street.

As for Truth - I have referred before, more than once, but it gets difficult trawling through old threads (and they get so musty, fusty and dusty!) ...

... Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, 'What is truth?' to which the Great Guy remained silent ...

...... Keats moreover was slightly more bold, or rash, : " Beauty is Truth and Truth is Beauty; that's all ye know on earth and all ye need to know, of Heaven" (think that's a correct rendition)

...... and as for Heaven, I would refer you to the poem by A S J Tessimond I posted last week on the Poetry for the Soul thread, "Heaven", which starts, 'in the Heaven of the God I hope for, call him X' ...(let me know if you cannot find it or would like it reposted; its one of my favourite poems) xx

Looking forward to October.

Oh well - to save everyone traipsing through lots of old threadbare socks & wornout shoes, especially since some will be having to do it one handed whilst clutching struggling infants, I went to the Poetry thread myself, and found the Heaven of which I just spoke (ps, there's masses of old threads down there in the basement!):

HEAVEN

by A S J Tessimond (1902 - 1962)


In the heaven of the god I hope for (call him X)

There is marriage and giving in marriage and transient sex

For those who will cast the body's vest aside

Soon, but are not yet rarified

And still embrace. For X is never annoyed

Or shocked; has read his Jung and knows his Freud,

He gives you time in heaven to do as you please,

To climb love's ladder by slow degrees,

Gently to rise from sense to soul, to ascend

To a world of timeless joy, world without end.



Here on the gates of pearl there hangs no sign

Limiting cakes and ale, forbidding wine.

No weakness here is hidden, no vice unknown.

Sin is a sickness to be cured, outgrown

With the help of a god who can laugh, an unsolemn god

Who smiles at old wives' tales of iron rod

And fiery hell, a God who's more at ease

With bawds and Falstaffs than with Pharisees.



Here the lame learn to leap, the blind to see,

Tyrants are taught to be humble, slaves to be free.

Fools become wise and wise men cease to be bores,

Here bishops learn from lips of back-street whores,

And white men follow black-faced angels' feet

Through fields of orient and immortal wheat.


Villon, Lautrec and Baudelaire are here.

Here Swift forgets his anger, Poe his fear.

Napoleon rests. Columbus, journeys done,

Has reached his new Atlantis, found his sun.

Verlaine and Dylan Thomas drink together.

Marx talks to Plato. Byron wonders whether

There's some mistake. Wordsworth has found a hill

That's home. Here Chopin plays the piano still.

Wren plans ethereal domes; and Renoir paints

Young girls as ripe as fruit but not yet saints.


And X, of whom no coward is afraid,

Who's friend consulted, not fierce king obeyed;

Who hears the unspoken thought, the prayer unprayed;

Who expects not even the learned to understand

His universe, extends a prodigal hand,

Full of forgiveness, over his promised land

PJ- So, did you get what you needed form the responses?

Do clothes maketh the person? The clothes certain covereth the person, diguiseth/masketh the person, transform the person...whether the wearer is conscious of it or not.

Good good, PJ. Happy to oblige. I know we all get lost in our own stuff and our jokes and days pass. Sometimes we forget the actual question. It was a valid interest of yours. At least I took it that way. Just want to make sure your that your needs were met.

And, do you like the feather Rose gave you??? Because I have collected quite a few peacock feathers myself...You can always be Paul Joseph of the technicolor dream batman feather coat/cloak...

Like the Joseph link x

.. watched Batman Begins over the weekend which reminded me of racing around my tiny English country village on a dark summer night, aged 10, or so, in my adapted bed-sheet, not a Kevlar suit in sight ... and thus my dear old deceased Grandma who put up with so much from me ... (interesting word association was going to try to write it as we say it here, and came out with 'Grammarr' ! Holy etymology!)

... who are you calling a Yankee at the Court of King Arhur Holy Connecticut Lori .. ?!

Blessings

Must do some work now ...xxx

Wow I am sorry to be slow coming back on the feather-issue, wow, too busy preening them as they are so beautiful .. peacocks, owls, all the stuff for an aged shaman to be proud of .... not sure I am up to the task of donning such magical garments, am honoured indeed .... may get taken for Quetzalcoatl ... especially in the pre-autumn mists of morning ....

Love, Light & Bestest Blessings All x

HAHA! We always seem to get back to our past- back to the future, or forward to our history, or the like...something about that big round table that gathers kindreds..even if you keep cleaning it and do not remember where you started!
