Fireworks of the Spirit

Photo copyright Aji, 2015; all rights reserved.
Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog: I promised you something brand new for today, Wings's latest, something in keeping with the week's Fire theme, something source and manifestation simultaneously. This is it. It's the last of the larger coral cabochons, very old, blood red, wholly natural, and he's used it to bring fire itself into being: the physical flames of the outer world, and the inner fire of the traditional spirit.

The post itself is here. Wings's main page is here. Shares of the site links are very, very much needed right now, and welcomed with thanks from both of us.

Trickster World

Apparently I am not meant to do this.

To do anything, actually, but I'm referring to my writing.

I have been running, flat-out, for days. Pain, fatigue, migraines; they never let up, but I'm doing it anyway.

In between I squeeze in time to make sure the post at Wings's site gets done. I do my own writing, usually late, and apparently pointlessly, but I do it.

Friday Feature: When Fire Is the Vessel

It's time for our Friday Feature at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, it's a beautiful little piece in keeping with this week's theme of fire. It also keeps today's feature all in the family, so to speak. It's Wings's own favorite piece by his niece, Camille Bernal, and it's one that is perfectly simple and simply perfect.

The post itself is here. Wings's main page is here. Business is still, despite the season, virtually nonexistent (not only for us; seemingly for everyone but Wal-Mart), so shares of the links at Wings's site, including the main page, are much needed and welcomed right now.

The Night Spirit at Dawn

Some harvests are spiritual. And sometimes, the Night Spirit leads one into the dawn.

#TBT: Like Moths to Flame

Photo copyright Wings, 2015; all rights reserved.
It's #ThrowbackThursday at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, we go back only two short years, to a piece that embodies fire and flame and . . . flowers? Yes, flowers. Also, the small but powerful spirits who sustain and are sustained by them. 

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. As today's entry notes, exact replication of this piece would be impossible, thanks to the scarcity and extraordinary cost of such cabochons now. However, the style remains a classic, and if it speaks to you, he can create one from other stones (and other colors, if desired) that's entirely your own; simply use the Contact form to inquire. And, as always, shares of the site links are very much needed and welcomed.

Here in full, behind a veil of rain.

In an earlier incarnation, she showed her face . . . red like blood, like berries, like everything I need. This month is hers.
