How’s “vesica”? As in vesica piscis but without the weirdness of fish. Plus it has the lovely vvvvvvvvvv-ness at the front.
Yes, yes, there is “mandorla” but we use “aureola” for other girl-parts. IMO it’s the same thing. Almonds. Good for eye shapes and on top of yogurt. But unless there is a Yoni Puja going on . . . (*nods to Lady I.*)
And since you now know how my brain works (i.e. “cold” = winter-snowpants-eiderdown =”duck”), you know that I go from “aureola” straight on to “beer.” (Via “Corona,” I’m sure. – – – Which then takes me to “Father Brenner” via “nimbus.” And I need to stop thinking now.)
And, soooo? So what, it translates as bladder? No worse than sheath, right? After three live births, I can live with that.
Bladder. Yup. Ask the trampoline. (Ooh, TMI?)
Think about it. It’s definitely Western. It speaks to that sense of multiplicity and complexity that I was looking for. It has all of the concepts of divinity that The Bad Witch needs with just a hint of the mathematics that gets The Bad Witch off.
(OK, so a slathering of math. TBW is a whore for math. Especially really effing complex and/or theoretical math. And $35 Zinfandel, apparently.)
I love to play the flower-of-life shaped game (DaVinci’s Challenge) with my son – –
and now that I think about it, I will stop.
I still think the universe is shaped like Villarceau circles, or a kinda-lika-soccer-ball married to a Möbius strip.
And who doesn’t love doughnuts??
And we still use a set of Reuleaux polygons to make a triquetra. Right?
(Ferreal, right? That’s not rhetorical. I failed Algebra and had to go to summer school with Julie Corvette who wanted to beat me up after school every day for some reason. Ergo – – – Geometry? Aside from having a serious crush on Mr. ButIwonttellyouhisname? I was both hot for teacher and hot for geometry. There was a math I could cuddle up to. However, I only remember terms, not always their application. All else I learn from topdocumentaryfilms.com.)
Look! No footnotes! Just drunken paragraphs!
You guys have been great sports. Thanks!
