Inpuhotep of ThebesOn the side of the coffin of InpuhotepAre painted a pair of magical eyes,The eyes of the sky god, Horus.Inside the swaddled mummy sideways liesGazing eastwards through those eyesTo see each dawn the sun god riseBorn in the morning of the womb of NutTo sail the sky in the Boat of Ra,the Barque of Millions of Years.Above the painted eyes in hieroglyphsIt tells of the offering of the KingTo the green-faced god of the netherworld,Great god, Osiris, Lord of Djedu, and Abydos,A thousand loaves, a thousand beers,Roasted ox and fattened fowl, all thingsGood and all things pure, clean linen,Alabaster given in the name of the justified oneWhose gaze is fixed on the rising sunFor all the days of eternity.Note: Many coffins in ancient Egypts Middle Kingdom period had two eyes paintedat the head end of the coffins eastern side. The mummy was placed sideways so that its head was in a position behind the coffins painted eyes where it could look
Advice to the Wise:iconautochrome-lumiere:I thought it was about time that I changed the poem on my journal so here is a new one.Relax, Enjoy, Be Merry!If I were given the choice, I wouldget rid of ought and must and should.Such words would go in the rubbish binalong with guilt and blame and sin.We only need to love each otherand treat our neighbour as our brother.All other dos and donts dont matter;theyre just a lot of idle chatter.Weve only one life as far as we know,so lets enjoy it before we go.
Leaves in the WindHere is one of my favourite poems:Leaves In The Wind I'm livingforgetful of the worldby which I'm forgotten.I'm living in my worldwhich is full of tall grassand not so widefor it's my back yard.Sitting here listeningto the whistling windand seeing the leavesbeing carried awayI realisethat one dayDeath will comeand carry me awayjust like thatlike the leaves in the wind.
Devious Journal EntryHere is one of my fav. poems. It is by Mary Oliver. I hope you like it, tooThe Sun Have you ever seenanythingin your lifemore wonderfulthan the way the sun,every evening,relaxed and easy,floats toward the horizonand into the clouds or the hills,or the rumpled sea,and is gone--and how it slides againout of the blackness,every morning,on the other side of the world,like a red flowerstreaming upward on its heavenly oils,say, on a morning in early summer,at its perfect imperial distance--and have you ever felt for anythingsuch wild love--do you think there is anywhere, in any language,a word billowing enoughfor the pleasurethat fills you,as the sunreaches out,as it warms youas you stand there,empty-handed--or have you tooturned from this world--or have you toogone crazyfor power,for things?

[RAFFLE 4000 points or $40]Chit Chat! Updates!!!Hi ya'll! It's been forever since I have written here, but I figured I would update ya'll on my life. I recently got a new job, it's still new but it will help me greatly for bills and saving up! So I don't have to panic anymore hehe. Always scared I can lose it though. I hope not! -I recently started making a financial plan and schedule for bills as well as capping limit on spending a certain amount, I've been trying to do it where I do not need to freeze my card once it hits a certain amount and it's going well.

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
