Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

I'm not certain if it was an intentional thing or not, but I like how you factored the hands into all 3 pages! In the first, the hands are raised, in the second, holding a myriad of contradictions, and in the third, henna-decorated and posed as tho' to ward off anyone NOT a goddess! You are VERY good with paper, my friend! AND with needle & thread. Also with animals and plants. And jelly. Oh, yes! Definitely with jelly!


Really nice pages Anita I esoecially like the top one great background, they look great from your camera, I never think to scan my stuff..
So are these pages going into a book or is the whole book your work.. I went to the 1001 site but DAH me didn't get it.. What I saw there wasn't as good as your work..


Your paper work is super. You come up with great ideas.

Thank you so very much for your lovely work in this Journal. I hope I get to work on something for you some time.
