get back,get back!
- to where you once belonged to !
P.S. This is the last call to St.Nicholas
to return to his roots.
He was born around the Black Sea region of Asia Minor (today:Turkey)
also known for his benevolent deeds in his neighbourhood,
had come down to the mediterrenian and converted into christianity,
died and buried in Kash,later announced a saint.
despite the Silk Road,the orientals could not forsee the consumerist ideal
hidden in this long dead (once) gentile product !
so he was exported off to the west,along with other myths...
like the sumerian fertility festivities-each spring seeding mother earth
in guidance and demonstration of ancient priest and priestess in temples.
The western importers brought the the egg festival and patched their local myths to import ware
thus we now have egg laying rabbits around easter every year!
and Santa got the sleigh and the deer.
The genie had long parted Aladdin and the clausthrobic lamp,
he -in western dexterous hands - has gone global and
became the marketing genius
( may be latin for the Genie!).
(PPS. Barbara Eden, does not count)
Colour red may chemically be dangerous and hazardous to health,if not handled properly;
but as a marketing tool - it is very lucrative ! indeed ! ( if used wisely)
and in this case money scattering mood ..
Santa dress in red ,Marlboro has red ,so does Coca Cola ,McDonald
colour of money is green,
which colour is happiness ?
Myths travel also backwards on the Silk Road ,
nowadays we celebrate Valentine's day,and even Christmas in Turkey,
(the fate of local pine or other trees in Asia minor through the thousand years is not a happy one
it was Phonecian boatbuilders who started and now Christmas demand more slaughter)
probably there are more men named Alexander in Central Asia then in Macedonia !
also imported Mother's,Father's days (just imagine gift and flower sales in China alone...)
Statistical revenues of Santa's blooming and booming spirit
is in itself enough of a mouthwatering temptation
to claim Santa back to his home ! Kash -Turkey.
To be honest ,we really miss him after all these years,
still don't understand how this commodity slipped through our hands,
we now bang our heads with regret,
anyway,why does he not live in Vatican ? but chose Sweeden,
was Sweeden an exile territory for new christian Rome at the time?
Santa must be homesick!
yearning for his native soil !
or we plan to sweettalk him into coming
back to where he once belonged to.
The weather in Fatherland is good,
his swimming trunks,Rayban's - other gadgets all set,
he will have camels,cara-van,and a harem (this is the bait!)
we started the rehearsals already for a due warm welcome reception,
once Santa show up on Turkish soil
and while we amuse and entertain him
(fire works,laser shows,virtual -anything popular at the time....all the essential works!)
Our Santa Committee will fly into Washington D.C
to register anything and everything
for the trademark and copyrights of Santa - and that will be the day
it will also announce the freshly imported from the USA
1st Thanksgiving Day in Turkey !
but we will be eating India as this bird is called India locally,also in Israel -so I heard.
(after all one more Holy day won't hurt,since we have a sum of 3 months
every year for national and religious holidays-
a nation (almost) on vacation throughout the year!)
Another season has come to greet friends who find meaning in Christmas,New Year
or simply being here on this planet - hope all of us enjoy good health.
THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN MARBLING ARTS
WAS ONCE ON THE 1ST COLOURED COVER OF INK AND GALL
CHRISTOPHER WEIMANN HAD MARBLEOUSLY
CAPTURED AND COMPOSED
THE INNOCENT WHITE,WITH PARADISE GREEN
AND THE RED OF LOVE....
I had lost my marbles then,
am still INEBRIATED...
which year is it there ?
and now .
