If you were one part human, two parts something else — another animal, a plant, an inanimate object — what would the other two parts be?
I would be part phoenix, part nymph. [As usual, a conundrum of sorts.]
The phoenix to me represents the metaphorical fire I have lived through, the scars I’ve incurred, both mentally and physically, and the ability to be reborn from the ashes of my death. I’ve always loved Jean Grey. At one of the glorious heights of my depressed-mania, I went as Phoenix for a Halloween party. It was a terrible costume, just some things I picked up from a thrift shop and mainly made to look like Jean Grey’s character in the movie between phases -meets- dark phoenix.
A nymph (Greek: νύμφη, nymphē) in Greek mythology and in Latin mythology is a minor female nature deity typically associated with a particular location or landform. Different from goddesses, nymphs are generally regarded as divine spirits who animate nature, and are usually depicted as beautiful, young nubile maidens who love to dance and sing; their amorous freedom sets them apart from the restricted and chaste wives and daughters of the Greek polis. They are believed to dwell in mountains and groves, by springs and rivers, and also in trees and in valleys and cool grottoes.
I also love many of the combined ideas of Elven lore. Maybe my human part is half elf.
Earth air fire water… I tried being Wiccan, once. I think my Spirit is too bent now.
In summation, I’m not very human at all.
