The Transcending Spartan Soldier


300 soldiers against thousands of troop invaders, but they were all slaughtered.  Perhaps it should be called the range of conquest.  Relative to many wars the dead are now at peace, but as human beings the attackers are affected.  Yet there is honor in a fair fight hopefully not to the death.  So has modern technology and advancements helped us progress to more peaceful resolutions, or does a screen avoid reality?

My new fashion look for most occasions is depicted in these pictures.  Note, that I do not wear glasses, but with these Polaroid yellow tinted I can not only see better and brighter, but protect my eyes as much as the mask protects my mouth and noise.  Clothes are casual and easily washed. 

As much as we joke and laugh during this modern and dangerous predicament there are other precautions and natural measures that we can take besides the alcohol/aloe vera disinfectants, and constant cleaning.  The best herbal medicine that can be mixed in many ways for just about everything would be Turmeric.  That strong yellow powder is amazing.  One of the greatest remedies for colds, sleeplessness, and detoxifying would be India’s “Golden Milk.”  ½-to-one cup of milk boiled add ½ tsp Turmeric, a little pepper, and boil again.  Strain, and add honey.  There is a separate mix for tooth whitening, but this alone will help as a well. This will also help if mixed for skin eczema.  Natural honey is also medicinal in many ways, but also for eczema, and burns.   

In addition to detoxifying the use of “Tea Tree Oil,” as a chest rub, adding two-three drops on your toothbrush w/toothpaste will serve as an antibacterial agent leaving your mouth fresh and your toothbrush clean. This can also be used to removed tags and moles without scarring  

Making your own antibacterial sprays doesn’t always need aloe vera, but just at least 70% alcohol with a few drops of perfume, aromatic and muscle relaxant Ylang Ylang, Lavender, etc.  Just perfume alone in an emergency rubbed around the noise and hands can help.  Just like Liquor Alcohol can help externally.

Herbal medicines have little toxicity next to the over the counter and prescription drugs and if needed one doesn’t have to take them continuously for weeks.  Also, one can define between a cold, flu, allergies, or COVID-19, a little better.

Herbal teas such as Chamomile, can also bring relaxation and ease the internal organs along with the best invention Aspirin/Tylenol/ Acetaminophen.

Last, but not least exercise and dancing is very medicinal.  It means without a partner, but do so with your favorite music.  Get lots of sleep!

Stay healthy everyone!

Experience the art of nature this summer with metamorphosis! I've had many birds for pets and although they understood, did many tricks, loved each other, and entertained they never reproduced. A friend at work who never had any children with her husband has had their parakeets reproduce more than once effortlessly.

My mother knew how to pin a butterfly just right on the back to the wall without hurting her. When I was about two years of age she found a beautiful white butterfly and pinned her to the wall where she laid many eggs before leaving the small lifespan they endure. When I was older after having children my mother caught the most beautifully designed and colorful butterfly, and pinned her just right without hurting her on the wall again. She lived her lifespan, but laid no eggs.

Collage, Acrylic Drawing

A contrast of beauty and destruction.  It's amazing what we as humans can accomplish, yet shockingly devastating and backward in instances within our history.  Moving forward toward peace and better communications, and understanding as to what it means to resolve rather than destroy.

A Long Time Ago & Once Upon A Time

A Long Time Ago!

Once there was a small peaceful village with a good king, but an aggressive individual could kill, and get away with it, 

Once there was the most beautiful prosperous and lustrous green land with an advanced civilization creative, and artistic of great riches that had to be well hidden in cunning secret compartments,  

Once beauty was a curse for the egotistical, and powerful to amuse them and encourage slavery with it,

Once a stern governmental takeover would directly affect, and harm the citizens without warning, nor protection, and with abrupt unacceptable brutal enforcement,

Once one could not voice their freedom of speech through protest and derive peace with it.

Happy Easter - Christ Has Risen!

From the old Julian calendar developed during the reign of Julius Caesar, Χρόνια Πολλά Χριστός Ανέστη! Χρόνια πολλά σε όλους 
Happy Easter - Christ has risen!
