Nearly done for the day, and I love Friday nights when it’s like a whole new day beginning!

I love Fridays. They are my most productive work day of the week. We work from home on Friday’s, and that allows me to work against my own creative backdrop, whatever I so choose that to be. My favorite are the ones where I get to spend pretty much the entire day in my apartment which is something more like an entire home as a work-live-studio-girls-bedroom. It’s something I do where ever it seems I live.

My second favorite are ones where you’re on your way to a reset weekend which makes you even more creative than being in your home-home environment.

Ah… I dream of Casa Frida…


Living as One Apart

If anyone does not love the Master יהושע Messiah, let him be a curse. Maranatha! The favour of our Master יהושע Messiah be with you. My love be with you all in Messiah יהושע. Amĕn. — 1 Cor. 16:22-24, ISR

Cursed! “Come, Lord!”

Anathema was originally used as a term for exile from the church, but evolved to mean “either set apartbanished or denounced”. The word “anathema” comes from Koine Greek“ἀνάθεμα”[1] as “something dedicated, especially dedicated to evil” from “ἀνατίθημι” (anatithēmi, “offer as a votive gift”, from ἀνά ana, “on” + τίθημι tithēmi, “I put”). It originally meant something lifted up as an offering to the gods; it later evolved to mean:

  1. to be formally set apart;
  2. banishedexiledexcommunicated;
  3. denounced, sometimes accursed

In the Christian Bible, it appears in conjunction with the word “maranatha“.

Maranatha (either מרנא תא: maranâ thâ’ or מרן אתא: maran ‘athâ’ ) is a two-word Aramaic formula occurring only once in the New Testament (see Aramaic of Jesus) and also in the Didache, which is part of the Apostolic Fathers‘ collection. It is transliterated into Greek letters rather than translated and, given the nature of early manuscripts, the lexical difficulty lies in determining just which two Aramaic words comprise the single Greek expression, found at the end of Paul‘s First Epistle to the Corinthians (1 Cor 16:22) .

If any man loveth not the Lord, let him be anathema. Maranatha.  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. —1 Cor. 16:22-24, RV1885 Continue reading
