I have to confess that Tumblr is probably one of my least favourite sites on the web. I guess it may be because I remember the days of Usenet and how nasty that could be. To my mind, Tumblr is far worse. What is even more disturbing, however, is the rampant plagiarism amongst Tumblr pagans and Wiccans.

This latest blog entry is a bit of a rant, but I believe it needed to be said - AGAIN.

Posted to my other blog, Life Belongs to Sekhmet  (niankhsekhmet.com) I am trying a bit of a new direction.  Since I am living the life of sustainability, permaculture and hoping to improve our level of self-reliance, I focus on what it means to get back to the land and the journey along the way.
This post will probably come as a puzzlement to those who are expecting me to hand out some profound post on Sekhmet. While the subject matter is a bit of a side jaunt, because Sekhmet is the very...

A statue of Ramesees II and Sekhmet as it was discovered in the 1930's. Looking at the workers in the background, the scale is quite impressive.

The Satire of the Trades #1: books are great!
I think many of us would agree!

As promised, the first excerpt from The Satire of the Trades (a nice short one to start you off). The Satire was an ancient Egyptian text used by students to practice their hieratic writing. It's narrated by a father, Dua-khety, speaking to his son Pepi as he takes him to the 'residence' to attend school.

The text is generally accepted as being at least a little satirical, though Egyptologist Wolfgang Helck argued it was written in all seriousness.

Either way, we get a few glimpses into some of the manual trades of ancient Egypt.

I've created 20 excerpts; I'll post one a day. Have a read and see what you think over the next couple of weeks. Satirical or not satirical?

Extras
- Papyrus Sallinger 2 is the most complete version we have of the text; see it on the British Museum website here: http://ttshr.co/1zF8bA1
- You can read the full translation in Miriam Lichtheim's Ancient Egyptian Literature Volume I, or online here: http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/texts/instructions_of_kheti.htm.  The translations I'm sharing have come from Lichtheim.
- The photo I've used is one I took of an ageing farmer from the tomb decoration of Nebamun, now in the British Museum.

Enjoy!

One of the Root words and symbols in Sekhmet's name is the Sekhem Scepter or Gardiner glyph sign number S42.  this particular scepter was the symbol of authority and was often carried by nobles and priesthood. It was also used for the passing over offerings given at the temple.

This Moomas season, anytime you see that Horus = Jesus idiocy, please feel free to repost this photograph. The wretched scholarship that keeps getting passed along via memes on social media needs to end. Please help by showing the facts rather than the perpetuated bad information.

A well written article by Tamara Siuda about living, polytheistic practices vs. getting everything just so.  Reconstructionists and Revivalists take note.

My personal favourite cuisine!
Indian food is something of an anomaly, but not for the reasons you might think.

I sure wish Yuma had a good Indian restaurant.  We used to, then it declined.
