as the quientessential aries i found this chapter AWESOME and plan to do a water ritual as soon i set my eyes on the ocean (which i;ve never done yet). hopefully in SC where there is SOOOOO much of OUR culture and tradition, with okps anase and serpentinefire (what a fitting name)
water rituals done prior are par for the course and i wope to allow my level of trust ot rise so that i can do an earth burial ritual or two...but the FIRE
the fire that can HEAL as well as burn, is what i realy want to experience. here in the country now, we can burn stuff liberally, but not at night how i want it. oh well *shrugs* i get enough "heat" running damn 15 miles a day in this georgia sun. (i'm SHADES AND SHADES darker) was watching that tassila maat tape and was like "WHOAH that's me???"
i like how the fire ritual space is set in one space whereas the cooling down area is set afar with others representative of the village. that's why i need anase and serpentine. and being that i can take a lot of heat "physically" i hope to not burn myself being too close seeing as how i like to take things to the extreme. anyways...all this should make for a good addition to the fast as i appraoch day 100. but i really wish i could do it next weekend at buford, SC during the Gullah Festival.
