Well I'm okay,not in the glorious moods of before but trying to write my soulmate article and in researching tribal beliefs came across this Romeo and Juliet story of Vanuatu it's pretty romantic,there's even a song that is sung about them.Oh to die for love what could be more glorious,to quote sense and sensibility.How lucky we are to have love marriages,I wish I were magnificently in love right now,I usually am with him (snow), always having little day dreams about making him cakes.I normally read lovers legends alot and they always move me.I have a picture of Romeo and Juliet,an early manuscript on my wall.Im just a person of high romance always wanting high drama,passion,poetry,love letters,forbidden glances, oh I loathe feeling dulled.I would rather be dead than dulled.
How accountants don't die of boredom I will never know.Everything has somewhat gone from me the last two days, I cannot understand it.But I have to keep my head above water,I feel quite empty and long for mysterious forces about - mostly red who I feel haunts me a little.Songs don't move me,pictures don't thrill me,I just don't feel any heights.

I started my soulmate article with the Irish myth of Caer and Aengus.Caer being the goddess of dreams and Aengus a God of love,the story inspired Yeats poem that I love so much and recite The song of wandering Aengus .Aengus dreams or has visions of his beloved who he has never met and she sings to him.He wastes away for want of her, then goes in long search of her,finally finding her in gold and silver chains during Samhain(Halloween) where she will later be transformed into a swan.They agree to marry and both turn into swans and fly off,they then resume human form at Aengus's home and live happily ever after.Truly I adore Celtic myth,I never tire of it,I could read the story of Caer and Aengus a hundred times.The story is quite similar to the ballet swan lake but with a much happier ending.

I also listened to some talks on the Tuatha De Danann on YouTube,they are the family of gods and goddesses in Ireland,so much mythos,magic,meaning and mystery in Eire (Ireland) has me longing all morning to live there in some people white stone cottage in connemara,there I would be baking Irish soda bread with one of those old stoves and making tea,staring out at the enchanted and wild landscape,telling ancient stories by the fire.Oh please can I go there today.I looked at cottages and found this dear one,or this idyllic one,I wish one were mine.I really do wonder where in Ireland my ancestors lived,I have had some clues from ancestral dreams.

I'm going to make today a cherished day of looking at cottages,reading some of the Celtic books I've left off,drinking tea in my lovely William Morris mug,daydreaming that I live in Ireland and listening to the Gaelic song Fear a Bhata that I use to like and Nell Ni Chroinin who I love.I adore the Gaelic language.You find a few things that inspire you and the fire in you is kindled once more.I would like to redo my whole space to look more nested and warm with throws,maybe a white quilt and baskets.I want to frame two pictures of my grandmothers and put them up just to have them with me everyday,I don't know much about either,my paternal grandmother was a teacher,and my maternal grandmother was political and like a storybook character.I need to finish my painting of him (snow).I feel like homemade potatoe frites today,I just love traditional European food.Well I'm off to look at cottages,Irish recipes and read my books.Slainte!(an Irish blessing)
