He Is The Only Bird Able To Look Into The Sun
Let me tell you more about this beloved Avian that shares our
planet. Nail him to a barn door... and the evil spirits will be kept
at bay. Eat his brains while they are still warm... you will be
granted fantastical illusions. Perhaps you will think you are a
bird... or a plane... or the monster that dwelleth in the deep
Boil this creature's egg and have two of you eat the yummy insides at
the same time... and you will be forever protected from witches and
other evil spirits. However... don't watch him fly for any prolonged
period of time... for in this case--no matter how many eggs you
eat--death will never-the-less be awaitin' to carry you off.
Steal an egg from its nest and peace will forever elude you. Which
brings us to the philosophical question: If you can't steal its
eggs, then how do you get one in order to eat it? Yo. Excuse me,
Bird Sir, may I please have one of your unborn hatchlings in order
to eat it and thereby have great illusions? Nay nay dear souls.
Methinks not. Of course... I know you all know by now... our bird
friend is none other than the mighty eagle. Did you know that Adam
and Eve never died but were actually turned into eagles in order to
live off the coast of Ireland. Of course... it stands to reason one
should never ask whether or not Ireland existed in those days. If it
is written ... then it must be true. Yes?
The ancient Egyptians believed that every ten years the eagle flew
through the fires of hell and then plunged into water in order to
acquire a new life. I do not question this for I recognize fact when
I read it. As to how the eagle survived the hell-fires and where did
it find water in that place... well... that is a question for
greater minds than mine. The suspension of disbelief is necessary
not only for the enjoyment of fiction... but also for the enjoyment
of the Great Myths.
There's more to be said about this magnificent creature adored and
revered by the American Indian. There are places where it is the
symbol of Fertility, Storm, and War. But nowhere in the annals of
myth and fantasy is our bird more to be admired than in the mystical
world of jewelry.
Yes ladies and gennulmen. The Eagle which rest on the wrist is
mightier than the sword which rests in the stone. I have no idea
what this means... but it has a rather quaint rhythm... wouldn't you
say? Which leads me to a bangle. Nothing short of magnificent my
friends. I would venture to say there isn't a woman alive that would
not want this creature adorning that area directly above her
For those of you who are new to this thing called Tidbits...may I
direct you to my home page at www.tyler-adam.com
where you will
scroll down the left side menu till you get to the area that says
Tidbits Graphics... and then click on the link that says: Eagle...
in order to view a rather fantastical eagle bangle whose beauty
surpasses even that of the mighty tiger.
And there ya have it.
That's it for this week folks.
Catch you all next week.
