Escalope St. James
The newest Guardian Warrior - she is a bit of a different chic.
Medievals making a pilgrimage to St. James shrine often wore a scallop shell symbol on their hat or clothes and carried a scallop shell to present himself at churches, castles, abbeys etc., where he could expect to be given as much sustenance as he could pick up with one scoop.  Escalope St. James, says her descendants wore these shells so long, that now they are a part of their being. But, instead of asking for hand outs, she is now the giver of strength.

She has a protective & nurturing principle life force and has slumbered within the earth for many ages. She has a wicked sense of when someone is lying. She is a divining rod for the future. A tuning fork for fairness. She detests being bored and can see in total darkness. Boogie men cannot hide from her.
Do not confuse this with the fact that she has the driest and quirkiest sense of humor. She doesn't do one liners but everything she does, has a moral ending. To touch her is to tap into a special ley line. One where radio frequencies only let in the smoothest jazz and Billie Holliday sings the blues just for you.

Life is short. We seek adventure where we can find it. If you would like to travel along - follow the crumbs we leave on the blog. Photographic Illustrations, bricolage art and Relic Hunting are our methods. If you don't have a good time - you aren't trying.
