All Hallows Eve

For all those who died.  For all those who died-
stripped naked, shaved, shorn. For all those who screamed
in vain to the Great Goddess
only to have their tongues
ripped out at the root. For all those who were pricked, racked, broken on the wheel
for the sins of their Inquisitors. For all those whose beauty
stirred their torturers to fury;
& for all those whose ugliness did the same. For all those who were neither ugly nor beautiful,
but only women who would not submit. For all those quick fingers
broken in the vise. For all those soft arms
pulled from their sockets. For all those budding breasts
ripped with hot pincers. For all those midwives killed merely for the sin
of delivering man
to an imperfect world. For all those witch-women, my sisters,
who breathed freer
as the flames took them, knowing as they shed
their female bodies,

Death, shoes & honeysuckle.

But still, that last remembrance of warmer days wrapped up in that little scented flower is simply l♥vely! ;P

Cycl of life. ;P Gotta love it!
My new shoes or military boots from the orthopedic doc. Made just for me. Yeay! They where a tad bit too big around the shin, but that's what leg-warmers & woolen socks are made for. STUFF IIIT! ;P Found those bright orange flowers in a garden I walked past. Kinda get the feeling my soul's starved fo…

Ho-hum...

If you didn't already know it - I friggin' L♥VE autumn!!! Longer nights, leaves on the ground, warm soothing colours, savory pies, carved pumpkins & snugglin'...lots & lots of snugglin'!!! It might seem like I'm all cosy & tucked away under a heavy woolen blanket, beside a roaring fire now...but...naaah, I'm by my desk & almost can't feel my fingers cause it's 14.5 C inside & it's taking like forever to get my radiator s**t to work. *snarl* But - & that's a big BUT, I'm noooot going to be a grump about it. Cause it's my favorite time of year! The only thing that makes me grumpy is people celebrating yule, x-mas, etc. in october. Actually, I become grinchy when people get all dingly dangly bells & ♬deck the halls blablablablahblah♬ before december 1st. I get that preparing markets, parties & stuff like that needs to be done waaay ahead of time. But you're not getting me to dress up as Santa's little…
