So I haven’t seen Poseidon in months. It’s been a little odd. I miss Him very much. But I’m all gushy cuz Himself and all. (We won’t even get into the emotional baggage/PTSD type stuff that pops up from time to time, and only with M/men). He was so CONSTANT when it was my time with Him. So yeah, it’s been odd. Himself is here, most of the time, and is within almost instant range when He’s not. But I digress, that’s a whole other blog post. As mentioned, I’d been missing Him, and the last 48 hours have been a fucking gong show including ambulance ride with the toddler and a stay overnight at the hospital. Yeah. Anyway.
A fed moments ago this happened:
Me:*hears a knock at the mental door, so to speak, trots on over and swings the door open without really paying much attention*
Poseidon: *in that delicious voice of His that’s a whisper and the ocean’s angry roar all at the same time*
This is what greets me at the door
Me:*gapes,blinks, grins* Uhm…
Poseidon:*laughs a knee melting laugh, cups my face in his hands and kisses me tenderly, and disappears*
As I watch the first scene in The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, I felt Hermes press right up close behind me, His firm chest against my back. He breathed the word into my ear, causing a shiver, “Watch.”
This is a new incarnation of an old theme for U/us. As a younger person I was madly in love with the image of Kevin Costner as Robin of Lochley in Robin Hood: Prince of Theives. That was one of my first memorable brushes with Himself when He appeared as Cernunnos.
I’ve always been a big fan of shrines. I’ve had a large personal one for about 17 years. There was a point where it took up a whole corner of my room. I don’t have the luxury of that kind of space anymore. Thankfully my spouse has a very good eye for detail and symmetry. He’s never really said specifically that he is making shrines but that’s how they feel to me and it’s how I treat them. We went on a cleaning and rearranging rampage today. We are planning on relocating before the end of the year, hopefully six months, so we have to make things more presentable for both our sanity and to appeal to potential buyers. I am a borderline hoarder, I’m better then I used to be but there is a good amount of old stuff that still needs to be cleared out. Combine that with our tendency to procrastinate and it becomes a bit of an issue. ANYWAYS back on topic…shrines! In our cleaning today we set up some nice displays(*cough*shrines!*cough*). The photos of the one with multiple candles I did myself. The others my spouse put together. He calls the statue-candle holder tree, “Old Man Willow”. He was also the one who found it and was immediately drawn to it.
