Seeking Prompts for My Lady

I still owe my Lady Clare 9 entries for the Month of Written Devotion I had to pause in the flurry around Many Gods West. But the reason I haven’t returned to it already is that those prompts were just not working for me. Too repetitive, perhaps, or just the wrong angle for this relationship, I don’t know. Maybe I work better with some other kind of prompt, or clear questions, or pictures, or songs or…?

I’m going to be doing a ritual offering for Her on Samhain, so it seems suitable to give Her 9 posts between now and then (no, this one isn’t counting).

So I’ll ask you folks for prompts. They can be anything suitable for a prompt or for divination: a  word, a picture, a concept, a song, a poem, a general sort of question you might ask about someone’s spiritual path or relationship, or a specific question for me about my relationship with the Land I call my Lady.

    The Triton Museum on El Camino in Santa Clara has an amazing collection of historic Ohlone baskets. Sometimes they will fill a gallery with a selection. Tiny water tight drinking baskets. Cooking baskets. Harvest baskets. Fishing baskets. Storage baskets. If there is a task, there is a basket for it. It helps me imagine when the bay’s edge was soft with waterlands and reeds, or when the creeks weren’t in concrete channels.

      Yep. Twice in my classes on Native American/ American Indian history, I’ve been assigned the task of trying one of those forms of basket weaving. I still have the second one. It’s on my Native Spirits altar, a tiny, tiny basket filled with little turquoise nuggets.

      It’s far from watertight, of course. That takes years to master. I think I remember that they did have a woman who had mastered it demonstrating up with the Miwok exhibits at Point Reyes a while back, though…

    One of the grace names I heard for our home when growing up was Valley of Flowers.
