The Eleventh Day of Advent

The Lynx, Constellations, The Huron Carol
The Lynx, another faint constellation in the northern hemisphere and not usually associated with any myths. In First Nations stories the Lynx is the name of the daughter of the Sky Woman, she who fell to Earth through a hole in the Sky World and for whom the Elder Creatures of the Earth prepared a safe place to land, Turtle Island (North America).


  1. Frances, I am a great fan of blue and white china, old and new. This painting, and the one featured in yesterday's post, capture all the charm of my favorite china, with the addition of a spiritual ingredient.


  2. Thank you Frances. I love blue and white too. It has a special beauty, I think, as well as a distinguished history in art.
