So…… It’s mass essay writing time folks, and I have gathered here, as my blog friends some of the brightest, and well read minds. That’s right, you guys. (Insert big cheesy grin) No, but really I would love some feedback. I am using my ENH 251, Mythology class as an Honors class and I selected to do my Honors essay on Ovid’s, Metamorphoses. There are just so many directions one could go on this. So. . .thoughts?

The Implications on Psychology, Influence on Popular Culture, Feminist, Historical??? Any ideas, any at all?

I haven’t even finished it but just throwing it out there. He is moving onto Dante next week, so… but I am going to put my focus here, although I need Inferno too. lol Then yes… there are more essays. It’s like Essay Season.

Narcissus

   Fool, why try to catch a fleeting image, in vain? What you search for is nowhere: turning away, what you love is lost! What you perceive is the shadow of reflected form: nothing of you is in it. It comes and stays with you, and leaves with you, if you can leave! …………………………………..

He spoke, and returned madly to the same reflection, and his tears stirred the water, and the image became obscured in the rippling pool. As he saw it vanishing, he cried out ‘ Where do you fly to?  Stay, cruel one, do not abandon one who loves you! I am allowed to gaze at what I cannot touch, and so provide food for my miserable passion!’ While he weeps, he tears at the top of his clothes: then strikes his naked chest with hands of marble. His chest flushes red when they strike it, as apples are often pale in part, part red, or as grapes in their different bunches are stained with purple when they are not yet ripe.

Book 3, Ovid’s, Metamorphoses

All is well

Love yall

Butterfly Journal Update:

Self Reflection & Truth

In the magical realm I was pondering nature and magic, and thinking about our love of butterflies. Let’s face it, we all love them, ours hearts are elevated when they bless us with their presence. Why? Because they are lovely and magnificent, light and elegant, fluid and graceful. In our deep collective consciousness and the oneness, we relate to the vast transmutation process they have just come from. Each of us if fortunate enough to be able to see this alchemical process occur within ourselves.

As I have previously shared, I have a lot going on in my life since around my birthday the last week of October. Challenging, good, new, and exciting things. as well in that same time period I have been able to see myself, observe my psyche with some level of awareness and detachment. It has sort of been phenomenal. Usually we have filters of perception that prevent us from seeing ourselves on these psychological, emotional, egoic levels. So wow, and yea! Hasn’t been so pleasant and looking at self in these modes, is not always so flattering. lol Things even resurfacing that have been long gone, like anger issues, as if for one last and final purging. I also sense that this is a oneness affair and that we are all in that metamorphous state and dna is in transmutation, not only psychological, but physiological as well. Major change and transformation, pretty positive, and relatively painless.

I am really excited for us. Don’t you feel it? I bet you do. Changing schools is a bit of a challenge for me right now, but some perseverance has wrought success. Last week I had to go get my Arizona drivers license the day before Thanksgiving, about an hour and a half, but nice experience, oh and register to vote. Why because I had to establish residency, as to not have to pay out of state tuition. Yesterday I was at the new school, Mesa Community College, for 4 hours, waiting to see and advisor, and to get residency, and sign up for classes. It was a challenging day but successful. I got the residency. Yea! As it saves me $1500 dollars in tuition, and I have lived here a year.  So trying to figure out my degree major is uncertain. Arizona State University, doesn’t really offer the degree I wanted. I want to teach high school Speech, and Theatre but their programs, are EDU/English, EDU/History, science, math…. So to be an Education major, with English minor, or History? My grammar and elementary English is horrible. I am sure I have A’s in college English because they aren’t being that strict, (Have to finish Final Draft on Gatsby Paper) I like History, so… I don’t know? If I want to maybe teach English abroad, maybe English, and just educate myself on the fundamentals. Suggestions?

Also, I have to take a Math placement test. Ugh! lol I ordered a great book, Love and Math, but it hasn’t come yet. I will let you know how that goes. Wish me some Math magic because if I can place high enough, I will only need 1 Math class. Yea! lol I LOVE Math!

So other stuff too, some flirtations, and I have been very creative and motivated, getting things done. Well still procrastinating but …. Getting it done none the less.

Again I apologize for not having the time to read many of your blog post, I want to, I do, but just can’t catch up. In addition I owe 3 or 4 angel card readings, I am so behind there, I am sorry but I promise I will do them.

I will leave you with a quote from our good friend, and Word Press Blogger, Professor Erik Andrulis:

Butterflies can’t see their wings.

They can’t see how truly beautiful they are,

but everyone else can.

People are like that as well.
