Hey y'all!

I am currently sending myself all these files that I had used to translate the adimu and the Red Book of Pomba-Gira. They are all on CD(courtesy of the lovely abafe, thank you!), but I have a netbook and I am sans external drive for CDs and DVDs. So I am sending them to myself from the library, and hopefully I can get back to translating soon.

I talked to my BFF, who is a whiz in the kitchen, about the last post's recipe for Ezili Danto; she said that pork fried in such little oil would probably have a good flavor if the tomato sauce was added right in. So go ahead and plop it in there! I would make it today if I could.

I'll leave you with a blessing, from some Hyatt material:

TO BRING BLESSINGS INTO YOUR HOME


ON A PIECE OF LIGHTNING-STRUCK WOOD
AS LONG AS YOUR HAND AND AN INCH OR SO WIDE,
WRITE EVERY GOOD THING THAT YOU WISH TO BRING INTO
YOUR LIFE AND HOME.
WRITE THESE THINGS WITH BLACK INK.
CONCEAL THIS PIECE OF WOOD
UP ABOVE YOUR FRONT DOOR,
WHERE NOBODY WILL INTERFERE WITH IT.


Take a lightnin'-struck tree. Yo' git a splinter offa dat jest about as long as yore han' an' be sure it's kinda broad - jes' prob'bly about a inch broad.
Yo' write on it - yo' take yo' an ink pencil usin' black ink an' yo' inscribe on dat jes' de kinda luck dat yo' want to be in yore home. Yo' want peace - seems like yo' always gittin' tough, yo' want peace. Yo' wants tuh gain mo' money or yo' wants to be lucky in all yore undertakings.
An' den when yo' git dat wrote down wit dat black ink - be sure it's black ink - yo' conceal dat above yore do' where no one won't interfere wit it at all. Dat brings good luck.
