Tea and the Archetype of the Queen

I look for themes in my life...
And right now,
the Queen is around every one of my corners...

 

and in every cup of tea...

Yes, there is currently a reigning Queen in England,
the Netherlands, and in Denmark
and other corners of the known world...


There have been queens throughout history, myth, and in legends...
For the Queen is an archetype,
a universally known symbol...

And regardless of gender...
we each have a queen in our psyches,
in the midst of our imaginations,
in the sovereignty of our souls...

Where is the queen in you?
And how does she rule
in the land of who you are?

Pictures from a tea shared with friends
in celebration of the Queen of England's 60th Jubilee
from the smidgen of me that is English
and living in peace with the other parts of me that I know of
who are Scotch, Irish, French, German, Italian, Sicilian,
and Native American!
