I am putting today’s sticky “note” at the bottom of the post, instead of the top, because I don’t want you to get lost in the giant purple mass that you see below without some explanation. Read them from left to right by rows (there are black lines between each row), and I apologize for the watermark on the last one. I didn’t realize that was on the back of that pack of stickies until after I wrote on the front and flipped it over. 3M lawyers, please see the disclaimer below.
I have been writing Fie Eoin for seven years this summer, and pretty much from the beginning of those seven years I have had some idea of Aleda, the mother goddess of the Seven Tribes (also known as the Seven Tribes of Aleda, the language spoken being Aledan, ect.). And it wasn’t until earlier this week that I learned that Aleda was actually a woman from Gaerlom (for more on Gaerlom, see Stickies Five, Six, Seventeen, and Nineteen). She was the mother of the first Faye child (See Stickies Six and Twelve for more on the Faye) and the one who took all of the Faye children from Gaerlom to live in the mountains without fear of being killed or mutilated by the tribe that feared them.
The stickies below are Aleda’s death, and how she became known as a goddess, “the mother of us all”.
Well, I do hope this makes up for not posting in a couple of weeks. And I do apologize for that – my new puppy gave me a neck injury that took forever to heal. I also apologize in advance for not posting next weekend, but my parents will be in town and I only see them a few times a year.
Also, a disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with 3M and their products, Post-It Notes. Nor am I affiliated with any other sticky note manufacturer or distributor. I just use sticky notes more than the average person. Please don’t sue me.
