La Befana and best friends
I feel very loved today! Lorraine sent me a box of her prized canned fruits and veggies she grew from the garden mixed with some beautiful oddities. My favorite was the roman coin.
It made me shiver every time I held it in my hand. I imagined all the hands it passed through 2000 years ago and how our society mirrors Rome. I can feel things when I touch them. Just like I can see into a person's soul when I look at a photo. (Comes in handy when doing readings)
To make the week even sweeter, I received an Italian candy witch from Nathalie in celebration of "La Befana", a holiday in Italy where people give each other candy filled WITCHES and sweets. Sign me up! Thank you Nathalie!
I feel so blessed to have such true friends. And btw,
Lorraine's Birthday is on February 15th. She is having a cele-birthday-athon. More details soon. I hear she is doing lots of gigs with Paul, The Tim Malloys and Lojo Russo. WOW! I won't be able to attend, as I am working on a project here in La la land.
I have 3 big wop tee do parties this weekend. I'd better get to my dressing room and find some gowns. One night is corsets and leather pants, the next is a demure tea length gown (I'm most nervous about pulling off "demure")and the next is full on witchy Malena (which is no problem, I'll just leave my fangs home). Photos to follow, of course!
Thank you all for being such good friends to us! We love you!
The Batty Busy Malena
P.S. Here is a photo of the actual coin so you can see the size.
