Look down—there's Geb. He's the earth you're walking on, from the mountains to the desert and then some. Now look up—there's Nut. Yep, she's the sky. It might be weird to think of Mother Earth as Father Earth at first. But that's exactly how the ancient Egyptians decided things were.
Geb and Nut (pronounced "noot" to rhyme with "boot")
Ra is king (even if he's a jerk and didn't want to let Nut have her babies)
Family & Friends (& Enemies)
Shu (the wind) and Tefnut (the rain)
We are brother and sister, but have no other siblings.
Osiris, Horus the Elder, Seth, Isis, and Nephthys
Ra, Anubis, Ma'at, most gods
We're a little big for enemies…
Married to each other (Don't ask. There wasn't anybody else around.)
Planet Earth series with David Attenborough (BBC) (This was so cool. Nut thought it was like being right there with me.) Firefly (You can't take the sky from us.) Supernatural (These guys have even worse luck keeping things together than we do.) Falling Skies (Geb's happy that Nut keeps track of space. Because nobody wants this to happen.)
"When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other." – Margaret Wheatley
"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." – Albert Einstein
"We shall find peace. We shall hear the angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds." – Anton Chekhov
"Women hold up half the sky." – Chinese proverb
"It's plain to see / this world is heavenly" – Michael Jackson, "Heal the World"
The Odd Life of Timothy Green (See? Boys can come from the earth.) The Jurassic Park series (Nature really doesn't like it when you mess with things.) Ladyhawke (Captain Navarre and Lady Isabeau don't get to be together either. But they have a friend who can help.) Wrath of the Titans (Okay, so they aren't Egyptian gods. But they're still fun to watch!) Avatar (If you ever do make it to another planet? Don't mess it up. Thanks.) Ferris Bueller's Day Off (Everybody needs to have some fun occasionally. Even us!) The Secret World of Arrietty (This is how big we feel, compared to tiny humans. But we still like you.) We like disaster films for stress-breakers. 2012 was a crazy one. We'd have to be very, very angry for this kind of mayhem.
