__looking for the perfect gorge with the perfect trees

finding a jungle of Arbutus Andrachne
with the intention to crawl across it
for as long as possible
in as few clothes as possible.

The exercise ended at nightfall.

Libido went up.

For a while it was enough.

We will do it again… Watch out!

Calicotome villosa

Thursday October 18, 2007 – 12:47pm (PDT)

Αγρίμι
«Γεμάτος δρακονόπετρες εί’ τζη καρδιάς σου ο τόπος
και σώχωρο, ως κι α μ-πολεμώ, δε ντόνε κάνω λώπως.
Εις τσι χειρομυλόπετρες τσ’ αγάπης σου όποιος πέσει
ωσά ντο στάρι σάικα τη νιότη ντου θ’ αλέσει.
Σα ντο σακίζι με μασείς, σα ντ’ άγανο με φτύνεις
και σα ντο ξενικόσταρο στα κάρβουνα με ψήνεις.
Δε σου μαζώνω μπλιο καβρούς, δε μπαίνω μπλιο στα ρυάκια,
για δε μου δίδεις ύστερα όξω τα χαχαλάκια.
Χόντρος στο δώμα εγίνηκα, μικιό μου κορακάλι,
κι έρχεσαι και με καταλείς ψιχάλι γ-καί ψιχάλι.
Του μούρνου τη λερωματέ, το στίμμα τω βατσίνω
μ’ άφηκεν η γι-αγάπη σου, μα δε θα τα ξεπλύνω.
Σαν απού πιάνει το λαγό το τέλι στο ποράλι,
επιάστηκ’ απού το λαιμό στη μπίζηλή σου αγκάλη.
Ασπάλαθος την άνοιξη φορεί χρυσό ν-τακίμι
να σε μερώσω θέλει εγώ κι ας διάχνεις σα ντ’ αγρίμι.»

Girl inside Thorns

.

Who doesn’t know the tale of The Sleeping Beauty ?.

Here you have the entry of the encyclopedia; here you have the classic tale; and here you have a modern (not Disney) cartoon (with an unexpected ending).

I am the opposite; a different version of the tale where the girl wakes up in the middle of the thorns, does not wait for nobody to save her, puts on her father’s dungarees and starts a walk across the deadly hedge. Skeletons of big ironclad knights are all over, tangled in the thorns, but she goes on slowly –very slowly- without breaking or cutting a single thorny branch, so the plants are not angry and do not attack her. She is swift and supple and she moves on and on. It took her a whole day, but there at last she is out of the hedge –on her own.

Since you have read up to here, I think you deserve a happy end. Here it is:

Once out of the thorn jungle EsoR RairB meets Doubting Thomas who was standing there, doubting whether to enter the thorns or not. He was thinking : Maybe this is a trap; a conspiracy to get rid of all the knights of the country. I rather wait until somebody comes back; I will ask him what he saw. Maybe there is no girl in there at all. Maybe it’s a hoax.”

But there I was in front of him! We fell in love with each other and we have been together ever since.

What I most love D. T. for is when he touches me with his fingertips looking for tiny scratches and scars all over my skin.

~ Doubting Thomas touches wonderfully ~ ❤

___________________________________________

The palace with everybody asleep inside and the hedge of thorn bushes with the roses and the skeletons is a museum now. We can’t live on just love –even us fairy-tale beings nowadays. When the curse is over, we will see what we do….

Eleni (‘isl_gr’) who likes clothes (in both the literally and metaphorically) “dressed us up” in this tale in Ikaria last spring. Only the “Doubting Thomas touches wonderfully” is mine; it’s kinda cheap «meta-title» perhaps, but we thought it’s all right. We are not rich folks anyway.

Wow! The story of Waking Beauty – complete with romantic ending! She, Eleni, who has her-own Thorn-Myth, seems to have found the perfect costumes for you!

The only problem is DT did not come and save you, what kind of a knight is he? He should have figured a way, either with the flash of his sword or by cunning. Maybe you love him because he’s a tragic figure.

And the winner is …Greg!!!
In the play Doubting Thomas features as The Undecisive and ever Doubting Knight. It’s a funny play. But Nana didn’t stress the hilarious side. You see, Mr D.T. is an actual guy -her boyfriend!..
