The photo here is of an Angel Wing Begonia. This is a plant that just keeps on ticking. I think that I have hindered its well being a few times since it moved into the Aquamarine Healing Centre. First it was too much light, then it was too little light, then it was too cold and the list goes on and on. Throughout all of this, the Angel Wing Begonia is still surviving. Even when one works with the Devas of a place or a plant, there can be some challenges in communication and some situational glitches along the way. It is not like the plant can be placed in the middle of the Gathering Space and have the rest of the world just have to move around it to accommodate its needs. No, compromise is essential when it comes to this sort of thing. But I think that it is finally, perhaps, in the place that it likes best....I think. What I do know for sure is that it will certainly let everyone know if I have screwed up. So if another of its giant leaves falls off, we may have to find a new gardener for the centre.
So why is this lovely plant called and Angel Wing Begonia? Well, it's leaves are shaped like giant wings, and I guess that whoever came up with the name could think of nothing larger than an angel. Now, are angel wings spotted and green? I have never met an angel with spotted or green wings. If anyone else has, I would love to hear about it. In the meantime I am still having to watch out for Santa Clause.
I don't eagerly await his arrival. It is more like,well, lurking in the shadows. After all, I think that Santa just might be a stalker! No, really. Think about it. He knows when you are sleeping, and he knows if you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good, who other than a stalker knows all of this, for goodness sake? He might even be a pedophile. After all, he seems to like children alot, and he bribes them with gifts and goodies and candy. If a child sees him, he tells them "Shhhhh, don't tell anyone." with a wink of the eye. He poses for photos with small children on his lap.....now, does this constitute kiddy porn? And he calls them a "Ho! Ho! Ho!" if they "pull on his beard". So....that's what they call it these days! Hmmmm. I think that I am going to have to keep an eye out for this guy. And believe me, it I happen to find him.....
