Welcome to: CELEBRATE OZ, March 19, 2011
Thewi’s are magickal creatures created for a specific duty. There are thewi’s for sparkling and spacing stars, for coloring the flowers, leaves, trees, grass and all the plants, for cloud making and maintenance, for snowflake shaping. Well, there is a thewi for all the magickal components of Mother Nature’s plan. Thewi’s could choose to remain immortal beings and stay at their jobs forever or if they chose they could make contact with a physical world and become part of that reality as a mortal.
Our story involves a thewi, who was in charge of making the stars sparkle. She was a swift and dedicated worker for MN as they called their boss. She had a best friend in the whole world who was a rather large and in charge thewi who everyone called Tchs heart. They had been friends forever, literally because thewi are immortals unless harmed by another thewi.
Tchs heart was in charge of gathering the clouds and helping the other thewi who made the raindrops, sleet, hail, snow squeeze the clouds to produce their product. Our thewi never had offspring but Tchs heart had 4 beautious girls who someday would take over the jobs of thewi who chose to become beings of mortal body in other places. Thewi’s could if they chose live in any reality but if not serving Mother Nature, they became mortal beings.
The thewi were only allowed to breed once a year and unlike other creatures did not stay with that mating partner, so the girls each had a different father. One of whom had caused a problem with Mother Nature and had been turned into a Neg (negative energy). Banished from the work of the thewi, this Neg plotted to take his revenge by capturing Tchs heart and her offspring.
Our thewi flew most of the time keeping one star or another lit and sparkling and on her travels saw most all of Mother Nature’s creations. One of the most interesting was a strange little planet of multi colored hue. It beckoned to Zard, our thewi, more than any other place, but being the dedicated thewi, she kept her thoughts on her job first. In her travels she overheard gossip about the Neg wanting to secret her friend and offspring away. Zard rushed to warn her friend but she was too late to save her friend. In the fierce battle that ensued, the Neg killed Tchs heart. Thereby leaving her offspring alone and frightened. Because of the ending of their mothers’ existence, each of the girls had received one fourth of their mother’s energy at her demise. So, Zard took her charges and escaped to the odd little multi hued planet for safety. You see even Negs had to give up their immortality if they touched reality. Hoping that they would not be followed to this reality, the 4 girls and Zard came to OZ the multi-hued planet. Zard was now mortal and the girls each had ¼ of Tchs heart powers to hone for living on this new world, which became their home.
The inhabitants of OZ were as colorful as the planet itself and of very good disposition. The whole of OZ was a happy and contented place to live. The Munchkins, Winkies, Hillfolk and Bottomdwellers all got along very well except for the occasional spat but all in all……a very peaceful place to live. The peoples of OZ welcomed the 5 new inhabitants with open arms and invited the new arrivals into their homes and hearts and almost immediately became devoted to the four little girls.
Because of her powers and wisdom Zard was regarded as a being to be admired and all the peoples decided to give her land, right in the middle of the 4 countries of OZ on which to build a home and appointed her Grand Advisor. With this central location, the girls could learn of the people and the people would have access to the unusual talents of these offspring of the magickal thewi.
The construction of their new home took only a matter of days. The home was built out of the natural clear green stone of the area and in later years expanded to be quite a showplace. But for now, the new citizens of OZ were settled in and ready to begin their new life.
The two older girls were of school age and so were gone during the week which left Zard to care for only Glenda and Elphaba. The older girls proved to be bright, articulate and a bit precocious in their studies and excelled at almost all subjects.
Of course this is not the end of our story. It will be continued at Pagan Culture on April 13 thru May 1, 2011........and the final episode will be next time we all come together to CELEBRATE OZ.
