Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

Bon Anniversaire Jehanne D'Arc

Perhaps today, January sixth, marks the day of Joan of Arc's birth.

Though scholars are uncertain, I couldn't let the possibility go unremarked upon.

In the past I have paid her tribute here, but for today I will leave you with images rather than words.

Just took a peek into your shoppe....it's just so wonderfully full of delicious treasures! You've been very busy in my absence :)

Looks like all is well with you, which I am glad to see :)

Can't wait to be along to see how 2011 unfolds for you:)

I've always had a fascination with Joan of Arc. I think it's because we each of us carry a piece of her ideals! I love what you've created! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it. And thanks for the comment.
