Synchronicities... or coincidences?
2020 Was Not A Fun Time For Brick Management, Either.
This Witch Needed A Rebuild.
F*cking Idaho. Again. Dangit, MoJo!
Nampa, Idaho - Suburb of Boise and SJ's Weekly Band Practice.
Is SJ's Husband Related To EVERYONE In This Story?
Much like the 1871 brick, SJ instantly became irrationally attached to this doll, immediately placing her in a place of honor on their main altar. SJ felt like they were meant to have this one of a kind doll and that Mother Joseph led them to it because they so admired the one in the hospital the day before their difficult surgery. So... it was made when SJ was in Nampa, their spouse is related to the woman in Walla Walla that made it, it's highly collectible, it is specifically a doll of the person who has against all odds become their spiritual guide, and they also paid far less on ebay than what it's clearly worth. When you add it up, it becomes a lot... that's also only the beginning.
Athena was also the female counterpart of Ares - Mother Joseph was an Aries (born April 16), and had big, big Aries energy, not taking crap from anyone, ever. She also learned to wield her father's tools (thunderbolt) effectively like Athena did, and just like SJ and Andrea did too.
According to Homer's account in the Iliad, Athena was a fierce and ruthless warrior. Of course, the Iliad is the stereotypical hero's journey... Just like MoJo's life of adventure and building the west... Just like Greg's journey in Hellier... Just like SJ breaking up with their mom and dealing with their shit... and all three of us breaking familial patterns, orphaning ourselves in some way as we pursue our true hidden powers. The pattern repeats, synchronicity is the result.
SJ's Getting Really Weird With Nun Dolls Now.
The Haunted Nun Doll Museum of Michigan.
"There's People In Them..." Here's How You Get Haunted Nun Dolls.
Nuns = Original ANTIFA. Really.
French Nuns Were Beheaded for their Faith.
In 1794, 6 members of the Carmel of Compiègne, France (11 Discalced Carmelite nuns, 3 lay sisters, and 2 externs) were executed by the guillotine towards the end of this so-called Reign of Terror, at what is now the Place de la Nation in Paris. Those whom refused to denouce their faith and were executed as a result are now collectively known as the Martyrs of Compiègne. Nuns usually are willing to stand up when no one else will, even at the risk of death.
Nuns' Role in Educating Free Blacks After the Civil War.
These religious women call themselves "JOSEPHITES." Sara's middle name is Jo, after Big John's favorite grandpa- so they are a Josephite in a different way. Sidenote: SJ never particularly liked the name Sara, and never felt like a girl, vocalizing this from age 3 on. Using Jo or the initials SJ was something that SJ always preferred to "Sara". No one in their biological family would acknowledge this preference - despite the fact that two of SJ's brothers used their middle names by choice and it was a non-issue for them to do so. Clearly, their uncomfortableness was with SJ being nonbinary, not their name or pronoun preference.
MoJo's Link To a Forgotten Hero of Modern Nursing, Mary Seacole.
Having encountered Seacole in Scutari (a district in Istanbul, Turkey) during the Crimean war, Nightingale reportedly wrote:"I had the greatest difficulty in repelling Mrs Seacole's advances, and in preventing association between her and my nurses (absolutely out of the question!)... Anyone who employs Mrs Seacole will introduce much kindness - also much drunkenness and improper conduct". Wow, what an asshole thing to say, Mx. Nightingale.
