Crossing over

So we received word yesterday that Marie has finally crossed over. I feel a little sad, but mostly relieved. She’s actually been gone for a while and only had the flimsiest of grasp on life because of life support. I feel relieved that her spirit is free.

I’ve had minor stomach problems for the last couple of days, very similar to the type I experienced during Puck’s last days.

Marie had been in a coma for the past ten days. She hadn’t opened her eyes since the evening of my girlfriend’s birthday, and she finally crossed over on my birthday. Which I find interesting.

  1. My condolences. I understand she was a vibrant and dear part of your life.

    We actually weren’t close, but when she became ill we began to see deeper parts of each other. I wish we had seen that sooner, but people often put things off until they run out of time. I suspect she will be around in spirit form for a bit though, and I plan to add her to my ancestor shrine in the near future.

  3. Sounds like you were drawn together at the right time. I found this today and thought you might like it too… The Last Supper created out of spider webs.

    hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

  4. Oh speaking of ancester shrines, was packing up some stuff from the old junk room and found my granny’s small brass whale. A paper weight. I put it somewhere safe for when I get a chance to set up my shrine to Ezili! Perfect!

    Art with webs is pretty amazing! The brass whale sounds interesting and is great since it’s also personal. Is it for Ezili rather than La Sirene? Although I understand that some people consider La Sirene to be a manifestation of Ezili.

    And here I answer my own question: In Karen McCarthy Brown’s book, Mama Lola, she writes: “Several female spirits belong to the group called the Ezili. The three most important are Lasyrenn, the mermaid who links ancient African senses of woman power and water power; Ezili Danto, the hardworking, solitary, sometimes raging mother; and Ezili Freda, the sensual and elegant, flirtatious and frustrated one.”
