A Little Prayer

[Evelyn Glennie and Fred Frith]

For those of you who do not know of Dame Evelyn Glennie, she is the foremost professional woman in the music world specializing in percussion.

Beyond that, she is also profoundly deaf.

Please visit her website and listen to her YouTube interviews for some truly inspiring words, thoughts and encouragement, and to learn how to experience music beyond ‘listening’ to it.

100 words

I don’t know about you, but for me to decide to sit down and write is really hard. It could be, mostly, that 1,000 words a day is just too big a task.

Yesterday I listened to one of my favourite podcasters, Murr Lafferty, as she interviewed the Glaswegian writer, Kirsty Logan, who is the author of ‘The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales’, which has been long listed for The Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award.

I really enjoyed this interview and recommend you listen also. Find out about the ‘Magic Spreadsheet‘ plus how 100 words and bus rides can help with writer’s block.

A short note: I created this necklace in honor of “La Nina Guerrera”, the Little Girl Warrior, whose burial place archeologists uncovered when they discovered and painstakingly unearthed the  relatively new Meso-American pyramid site in the heart of Mexico: La Canada de la Virgin, which we visited many months ago.
A female had never been found in such a way before–buried with an obsidian axe, a knife, and warrior’s clothing. As well, there were four bodies of infants buried with her which indicates that she was considered to be divine.
Interestingly, she had been dead for 1,000 years, experts believe, before she was carried to this site on the high desert plain of Central Mexico. At first archeologists decided that she was a male child between 7 or 11, but when the team sent the remains to a laboratory in Mexico City it was discovered that she was actually a young woman. It is quite clear that she was very revered and must have been deeply loved through the generations for over 1,000 years, to have been carried from place to place by the Otomi people.
