A Moment Well Spent

Britain's Prince Harry spends a moment with 4-year-old Madison Murphy at Ground Zero. Madison's mom, Monica Iken, lost her husband, Michael, on Sept. 11, 2001.

Some powerful symbolism in this tenderly contrived photo-op. Prince Harry (carrier of the "sacred bloodline" of Christ) bonds with (marries) an MM, signifying Mary Magdalene - "the Bride of Christ". Her father was Michael - the archangel/protector of Jerusalem and "He who is like God". New York, via the Hudson/Jordan River, is symbolically Jerusalem, so Michael was also symbolically "killed" on 911.

A little tableau that seems "pregnant" with meaning.

Speaking of New York, I walked by the Stonewall in your honor on Saturday night. I actually had to meet someone right across the street- just an hour or two after Barackobamun had cruised 7th Ave with his motorcade...

wordver sync- chine- "chien?" Siriusly.

Fascinating Michael-I enjoyed Christopher's comment also-I wonder what your opinion is-at first I thought Harry might not be with us too much longer if you catch my drift-do you suppose it will be the other way round (with wills gone?) or both maybe living into old age-although for me "old age" might take on a whole new meaning in years to come-both for the haves and the have-nots-best to you and Varen as always!!

Chris, well... um, thanks. Given the 40 year thing, Var and I are actually braving the traffic to attend the local Pride Parade - haven't been for at least a decade. Will report.

I was reading about the "manhattanhenge" alignment thing a few months ago. Odd how Obama is always in the synchiest place at the synchiest time.

Devin - My intuition about these brothers doesn't really go much beyond "whatever they're selling, I'm not buying".

Definitely agree with that Michael! It is so hard to know who the "lead" characters will be in the coming years that will be there to deceive the masses-shit i look at the US and it horrifies me that most folks think sept 11 was carried out by 19 arabs with boxcutters-I feel that if one is true to oneself and would devote a mere 24 hours of solid research in the sept 11 horror without blinders on-only one conclusion can be reached and that is the governments story is complete bullshit! Needless to say I often wonder what the next "trick" is going to be-unless Americans (and also people in other nations) wake up just a bit it is easy for me to see a future of internal passports-brain scans-guilty until proven innocent-and so many other things-I hope like hell it doesn't happen-but I am just not very Pollyannaish about the future-especially lately-best as always to you and Varen!!

Well, I was thinking about your post and was right there. Tiny little place, it looks. The West Village is a happening spot these days- a good thing too since so much of downtown has been gentrified to death. What 8th st was in the 80s 7th Ave is today.

Interesting that you were passing by "ground zero" of gay consciousness, and curious that Obama was hanging about also. "Tiny little place" reminds me of the manger - an unassuming location for the entry of Divine Consciousness into our dimension. I wonder if our modern Herod will have anything to say about the fortieth anniversary.
