I’m selling my beloved Kuba elephant mask – only because I have no space for it. It’s hard as I’ve had it for over a decade and will miss it’s powerful and protective energy.
If you are interested in it, please do contact me and name a price – you might get it! 😉
These masks represent kingly power and are mostly used for initiation rituals. Some say they are used in a ritualized reenactment of Kuba mythological origins and royal power struggles. Portraying both the god Woot and the first king, the character marries his sister, Ngaady A Mwaash, and contests with his brother, Bwoom, who speaks for the commoners. This is just one of the Woot stories attached to this mask.There are also some very interesting stories on the web regarding elephant masks- some very fascinating ones from Cameroon also and different explanations of the Kuba and Woot’s story.
So, having been homeless has had me stay in the most wonderful places… (apart from the tiny room where I became allergic to the three cats in the house)
First at the boyfriend’s for about 2 weeks
Then a week in Berlin
…and now at a friend’s penthouse in Shoreditch!
But counting the days … waiting for a phone call to tell me I can rent some flat I’ve been trying to move into.. Can not wait to have a place I can call home! Having bits all over the place and moving from one place to another is not fun 😦
Ok, so I have to move in two days- can’t afford my rent – boyfriend said to leave a month early as to not add up any more rent- he said not to rush to find just anywhere and to stay with him til I find the nicest place..
Boyfriend said it’d be so much fun to have me stay etc etc
Two days left til I go to his and boyfriend had major panick attacks last night about my moving in – makes me laugh in a way – true comittment phobe –
Turns out he can’t possibly have me stay – what a let down 😦
So, I have no where to go – let go of chances of moving in anywhere in the meantime and place I may move into won’t be moving into for atleast 3 weeks.
Thanks boyfriend, or should I even be calling him that – I mean it’s not like I’ll be living there permenantly!! Can’t believe he’s let me down like this and he keeps telling me how much he loves me today – argh!
*Been drinking a lot of tequila to soften the blow…
Soo, took laptop to shop yesterday and of course it started working as soon as the guy turned it on!
I ran to the nearest wifi cafe, incase of it breaking down again and started emailing my pics to myself like Desmond (and sometimes Locke) would push the buttons !!
I’m only editing the pics now as I spent most of yesterday being moody and drunk and most of today with my boyfriend. He helped me pack up a bit- well helped me choose what items of clothing to keep and what to throw and I was much more ruthless with him around WOO HOO! 2 large binliner bags of clothes going to charity tomorrow! (I’m to leave my place on the 1st November when it was supposed to be the 1st December only yesterday…. and I’ve done nothing with regards to packing) and then we went and saw LOOPER which I thoroughly enjoyed. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt and it was a bit Inception-like although of course Inception Is better! The only thing I’d say is Bruce Willis needs to stop the action movies NOW- it was a fine line, a fine line… and I really liked Emma Blunt too – she was very cool 🙂
Anyway, just came on here for a break and to say that I have my real job, the job that pays the bills (actually it doesn’t even make the bills, but atleast I get to eat!) tomorrow morning, where I have to be totally on the ball and yet I am up at 2.38 am editing pictures for a magazine that always in the past has found reasons for not taking my work…..
So sent some pics to a local favourite magazine and she was interested in using them for her winter edition :DDDDDD
Of course once I set out to send her more of what she asked for, m computer died on me with non of those pics saved….
Now working for a bit so trying to retrieve all i can and save and back up etc – at EAT, quiet, great music in background, drinking my decaf and working on them – can’t risk waiting to get home! Fingers crossed as I really dont want to miss this important deadline!!
