Angel is a  young (late 20’s) local boy who reminds me of the ‘Charles’ character in  the film ‘4 weddings and a funeral‘.  

Angel in the morningAngel:   Yes….Yes…my home was broken into 4 years ago….they took everything….everything small….small enough to carry……mobile phones…..DVD player……they didn’t take my Cello….it is portable,  in a case with a handle,  you can carry it….they didn’t take it.

Wendy:   Oh (signifiying acknowledgement of the value of a person’s Cello)

Angel:  Yes.   Good thing really

Wendy: Yes……..      I’ve got a friend whose sister is called Hilary, like Jacqueline du Pré

Angel:   Yes…….         ………Yes……..   ……..must go……        got a train to catch.

trees-up!

Party season and dressing-up time (tree and me) is here!  Religious?   Looks like religious consumerism frenzy with some Christianity thrown into the mix based on many diverse seasonal pre-Christian ceremonies and some generally bizarre behaviour.   Seems like mostly well intentioned good fun.   In the Wendy House:

Same tree as last year,  wearing it’s party-best with an imposing new Angel atop

   

Same Wendy as last year,   this year wandering around an EMP seasonal party armed with Camera, LaCroix, Bollywood fans  and Russians,   including a very creamy white one.   I was tempted onto the dance floor by Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’,   kept there by the Bee Gee’s “Saturday night fever” and the Village people’s “YMCA“.   The DJ’s 80’s  tunes mapped rather closely to my  stereotype of ‘gay’ music.   It’s possible that I was sending  an unintentionally inaccurate message about my gender preferences by dancing to these tracks,   they were familiar and  FUN!   While LaCroix put her colour theory and unique eye into picture action I tried to capture the atmosphere during a Bollywood style song:

Angel of the morning star

Sunday, December 25th, 2005 | tags: ,  |

Today I searched (Google) for “Angel of the morning star” who you all you Christians know is Lucifer.  

The morning star is another name for ‘Venus‘ the brightest of the planets.   It’s symbol is the symbol for ‘female’.   In pre-christian Greece (Aphrodite) and Rome (Venus) the morning star represented  the Goddess of love and beauty linked to marriage, motherhood and sex.  

I’m  curious about Lucifer’s role before his (gender?) fall from ‘grace’.   I’m assuming there was a good reason that Lucifer was “second in command to God  himself; he was the highest archangel in heaven“.    This  online version tells of how lucifer fell from grace  before the creation of man.   In summary,   it suggests that God ran a totalitarian government that did not justify its actions.    Lucifer convinced nearly half of the angels that this  effectively made them slaves and  insighted them to rebel.   The key request of the rebels, lead by Lucifer,  appears to have been

 

that angels needed no law but should be left free to follow their own will, which would ever guide them right; that law was a restriction of their liberty; and that to abolish law was one great object of his standing as he did. The condition of the angels, he thought, needed improvement.”

Other quotes imply that they wanted a justification for laws,   they wanted reasons and the ability to question laws rather than obey unquestioningly.   And of course Lucifer was bright and aspired to having equivalent status to God.  There was a war in heaven and God won.      

Interesting how Christianity associated a pre-christian female principle that forefronted the relationships between men and women (love, sex, marriage, children) with their ultimate bad-guy.
