First, given the week this is and the fact that the equinox is tomorrow, this link.
I used it last year teaching pre-Christian imagery to 5th graders in a Lutheran school for their Easter art project. I thought many of you would find it useful. I've used it many MANY times in my work. The symbolism is very eloquent. The site is amazing.
And I was originally going to leave it at that. But I just can't resist this one!! I love the Onion. And I love the way they mispronounce "Diebold". It's "DEE", really, not "DIE", but so appropriate!
Somehow, I feel like I've provided a couple of lost chapters of a Tolkien manuscript. Just perhaps one wormholed simultaneously into the future and the past, so you've got a magic elvish egg that Gollum hoards while corporate Sauron v. Saruman legally battle over stock options, political territory, and bandwidth.
