reason burns brighter fire, which the bones
have always preferred...
It is the light at the center of every cell.
It is what sent the snake coiling and flowing forward...
- Mary Oliver
I saw a mala at the Rubin made entirely of snake spine and was completely smitten. A few weeks later I found the skeleton of a tiny snake protruding from the ground and unearthed it. I named her, Eve. I made myself a wrist mala. I made some other talismans from the spine and sent them off to far away friends.
