Genealogy of Bride 2/2/14

Flashback from Thursday, February 2, 2012 – Today’s pick photo is one of my African violets. I like the composition of this particular picture. I dedicate today’s photos and my photographic efforts so far this year to Bride, also known as St. Brigid and by other names. Bride is the ancient Irish goddess of smithcraft, poetry, and healing. I think of her as a great protector and goddess of the arts.

Old Irish Poem

Every day and every night that I say the Genealogy of Brighid
I shall not be killed.
I shall not be harried.
I shall not be put into a cell.
I shall not be wounded.
No fire, no sun, no moon shall burn me.
No lake, no water, no sea shall drown me.
For I am the child of Poetry,
Poetry, child of Reflection,
Reflection, child of Meditation,
Meditation, child of Lore,
Lore, child of Research,
Research, child of Great Knowledge,
Great Knowledge, child of Intelligence,
Intelligence, child of Comprehension,
Comprehension, child of Wisdom,
Wisdom, child of Brighid.

(Old Irish poem. C. 800-c.e.)

Our Hearts give thanks for the Grace in the Universe!
