|The Lady Accompanied by Her True Love at Sunrise|
The great hall was festooned with the ancient symbols of a life celebrated whilst dying. A tree cut down in its prime and ornamented. Nature uprooted, brought indoors and be-ribboned along with tiny specks of colors twinkling day and night.
This is the scene our picture-makers reproduce most often, wherein the lady presents the Circle of Life to her Mother.
|The Giving of the Wreath from Daughter to Mother|
In actuality the Lady's Mother had made this Circle of Life her very self years ago, although she no longer remembers the fact.
|Check out those matching yellow socks!|
The Lady's mother introduced Pao as her daughter to all those around her, and told everyone the story of the Yellow Skirt. She was said to be very happy and repeated herself endlessly. Afterward, Pao placed the Circle of Life on the front of her mother's door along with a photograph of this picture. All who saw it smiled.
and yes, there's still more to come...
