Thank you. Sometimes when pruning or digging out an old root you see 'another life' in front of you inherent in Nature's twists and turns. I was lucky to come across this one.

Good point. When we bought the house, it had been largely restored (from a ruin) by the previous owners, including doors, windows, roof and basic plumbing/elec. Have left it all as was ... but you've given me an idea ... thanks.

Hand-woven hexagonal baby blanket made from 12 diamond-shapes, delivered to a friend's new baby today - part of our role as 'adopting grandparents' in the local community since we hardly ever get to see our own grandchildren these days.

That is just stunning. How special. I LOVE how you're adopting grandchildren! Children cannot have too much love. Ever.

He's a lovely baby - with Zimbabwean/Polish parents.

I created this rather exquisite self-portrait of me, which I published a while back over on DeviantArt, where I go by the name TLadyJessica. It is a depiction of me as Queen Tiamat... the ancient Sumerian goddess of Chaos.

Being a Wiccan and Gnostic High Priestess, one of the things I had to do was construct my own wand... I created two over the years, but the best one by far was my original, which I still have to this day. Here is a photo of me holding it. I carved it from a piece of wood that I found in a "Faerie Ring", that is to say a ring of toadstools, in the woods at a park near where I used to live. The same woods in which I had both several sacred visions of the Greek Goddess Diana Lucifera and the Celtic Goddess Dana. Regarding the wand's construction... I mounted a clear gemstone at the tip of it, and held it in place with two black cords. Then I added a couple of yellow ribbons (which hold a sacred, symbolic significance in my spiritual beliefs) and I deemed it complete. I had also washed the wand in water I had blessed and consecrated, before drying it and decorating and then placing it on my Wiccan shrine in order to imbue it with sacred energy. Constructing a true "magic" wand is no simple thing, unlike creating a simple decorative wand... but requires effort, dedication, and no small amount of spiritual energy on the part of the Witch or Warlock who embarks on such a creation. Mine was well worth the making though, since it has served me well over the years... and it is pretty besides. My other "magic" wand has rainbow-colored ribbons that crisscross the whole length of it, and has a purple gemstone mounted into it, but regrettably I have no pictures of me holding that one.

Many thanks, Ahavati! I have always loved art with as great a passion as I adore writing... there are some things that can only be expressed through a visual medium, just as certain other things can only be conveyed through words. To me, both art forms are mutually complementary of each other.
