Seven of Cups

Does it seem all, in your imagination, these spiral castles you have built, shimmering on the mirror-stillness of a mystic lake? Dewdrops hang glistening on the spider's web in the half-light of suspended animations, changes and magick portals afoot� Ssh! The God and Goddess seem alive, and afoot, weaving, weaving the threads of fate, "in her craft or sullen art" (with apologies to Dylan Thomas)...Funny that I just get this, after posting on AT re "if Tarot cards represented drinks"! (Tarot games and fun)... And I failed to find mead, redolent of bees worshipping the sun (despite auspicious solar portents, although I did the Sun reversed!), to appropriately celebrate Beltane this afternoon... lol Never mind, brightest Beltane blessings, everyone, lol!
It also goes quite nicely with today's rune of Lagu: "When interpreted as the returning tide, Laguz can also predict the inevitable return from a long journey," also interesting after the 6 of Swords (how do you turn off this silly underline thing?) lol

Hehe, Mel Gibson grows up at last, despite Catholic indoctrination?

Mel Gibson shoots epic Mayan movie

Sunday Oct 30 12:03 AEST

Actor Mel Gibson, who turned a Latin script on the crucifixion of Christ into box office gold last year, is in Mexico to shoot his latest film: an action movie shot entirely in an ancient Mayan tongue.

The star turned independent director is in the eastern state of Veracruz to film Apocalypto, a thriller set in an ancient Mayan settlement and shot in the Yucatec dialect. [Cool, Quechua, the "energy language", as Eskimos have a "snow language"?]

"It's set before the Conquest, so there are no European faces, and we are using mostly indigenous people and actors from Mexico City," Gibson, sporting a long beard, said at a news conference in the port city of Veracruz.

"There's still a lot of mystery to the Mayan culture, but when all is said and done, it's just the backdrop to what I'm doing - creating an action adventure of mythic proportions," he said.
