    I just ordered a few lovely items from a Lolita site I have been admiring from afar for quite some time! I got two dresses – one qi and one classic – and a petticoat, which I can wear under my other vintage dresses, as well.

    I remember when I first came to Shining World, and the idea of cutting out bifurcs in favor of vintage or otherwise…[Read more]

    Rayati, honored Miss Venus!

    I beg forgiveness for my lateness – but this is an absolutely splendid idea! I would most certainly be interested. Please keep us all updated.

    In amity,
    Mei

  • Rayati, Miss Venus!

    Please forgive my tardy reply, but I would be most interested! It can be so very difficult to explain everything when one is asked; one often does not know where to begin. Something like what you propose could be a wonderful help.

    I look forward to seeing the forthcoming sample.

    In amity,

    Miss Betty Grace

  • Rayati everyone!

    I am creating a small publication that will cover the basics of us Daughters and our spirituality. This publication will just be a small homemade booklet (I believe Tellurians call them “zines”) that I will have to mail by hand. I will post a sample of it soon.

    Would anyone be interested?

    With amity
    Venus

    I am having a wonderful time finding that there are so many janya. So far I’ve found Sai Annya, Sai Nimwe, Sai Rayanna and Sai Herthe. It’s almost like a hide and go seek game!

  • Here is a sweet harvest picture for the festival by Molly Brett.

    Although the Feast of Divine Life has a much broader significance, which you can read about in “Cuivanya: The Autumnal Equinox”, I always think of it as the Apple Festival. Apples have been associated with Divine Life and immortality in many traditions – this image is of Iduna, who in Norse mythology tended the golden apples of eternal youth.

  • I have been thinking a lot about these two because I see on elektraspace they don’t get the appreciation they deserve. I wrote some short poems for them. Not my best work admittedly, but I would still like to share them.

    Sai Vikhe,
    Lady of war
    Lady of courage
    Lady of valor
    Let your fire warm my heart
    And keep me strong and confident

  • Rill-san,

    Please do not apologize! You have not ruined any positivity of the experience, and yet, hearing of the traditional view was very humbling, and I believe was important to realign myself from the modern view of the Eclipse. Your words are a balm to my heart and a great reassurance.

    How to express… This is very humbling. I walked in,…[Read more]

    What would a herthelan child call her mothers? Brunette mother and blonde mother? I’m writing a book and I don’t want my readers confused.

    • In Goldenhead, Sarai-chei referred to her brunette mother as mama, and her blonde mother as mimi. And in The Dream Key, I believe the blonde mother was affectionately called Mamala, though perhaps my memory escapes me.
      Please, if it pleases you, keep us updated on this! I am always excited to hear about new intemorphic literature.

  • Rayati Mei-chei,

    There is no need for apology, nor is there anything to forgive. I do feel bad for taking away from your powerful experience, and I humbly ask your forgiveness for doing so.

    I do not think it was foolish to go, in that pretty much everyone was telling us to go watch, that this was a “once in a lifetime event.” On the day of and…[Read more]

  • A side note:
    My response had a poor sort of slant to it, from being relatively normal to becoming most apologetic. I most felt the implication of things in the middle of the post and felt the need to express that most immediately.

    And I apologize if I do not make much sense; I ought to be sleeping right now! I am still worn out from travel. I…[Read more]

  • Rill-san,

    I am honored to hear your response on the topic! I know now that it is tradition to avoid viewing the Eclipse, though I must shamefully confess that I did not know that before hand. I had made the promise to my family that I should attend with them last year, and so it was not possible for me to back out.

    I am beyond grateful that I…[Read more]

    The Day of Werde– coming up this Wednesday – is the celebration of the Janya known as the Great Weaver, Sai Werde, who holds the threads of existence and interweaves the lives and destinies of individuals and communities. She has three Aspects or Persons known as the Three Fates.
    The Day of Werde is often a day for consideration of the dir…[Read more]

  • Rayati Honored Mei-chei,

    It sounds like it was a powerful experience for you. I know that the event was extremely popular in the U.S.

    I personally did not watch the Eclipse. I stayed home with the blinds closed. I also took in anything precious from the garden that was moveable, like my outdoor Maria-sama and my fairy garden. I also made sure…[Read more]

  • Rayati, honored ones!

    About an hour ago, I arrived home from Idaho, USA. I travelled with family to go view the solar eclipse.

    Now, I have seen discussion of the solar eclipse being something of a “mini Hiatus”, and even though I did not become aware of this discussion until I came home tonight, it is the mindset with which I began the…[Read more]

  • Miss Venus,

    I am very, very, very new here – I know little about the Aphrodite Cocktail Bar, though it is on my list of research topics. I do not know if I was even all that old when it originated. I’m quite young, only starting my first year of university this fall!

    Nevertheless, I ramble. I think that, and this is perhaps very uninformed, it…[Read more]
