Lightbulb I Am a Kamera

Wadjet Harris as lioness Bowles..
I Am a Camera is a 1951 Broadway play by John Van Druten adapted from Christopher Isherwood's novel Goodbye to Berlin, which is part of The Berlin Stories..Rays of light travel in straight lines and change when they are reflected and partly absorbed by an object, retaining information About the colour and brightness of the surface of that object..Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub..

Live BBC - A Flock Of Seagulls -Wishing I ran..

In Ancient Egyptian texts, the "Two Ladies" was a religious euphemism for Wadjet and Nekhbet, the deities who were the patrons of the Ancient Egyptians and worshiped by all after the unification of its two parts, Lower Egypt, and Upper Egypt.. When the 2 parts of Egypt were joined together, there was no merger of these deities as often occurred with similar deities from various regions and cities.. Both goddesses were retained because of the importance of their roles and they became known as the two ladies, who were the protectors of unified Egypt..The two ladies were responsible for establishing the laws, protecting the rulers and the Egyptian country, and promoting peace..The references about fierce-eyed lions is another euphemism, related to the war deity, Sekhmet..She was depicted as a lioness and the pharaoh-as-warrior was said to be her son, therefore, a lion..These 3 deities were the strongest patrons of Ancient Egypt..Greek and Roman religious beliefs were significantly less Zoomorphic than Ancient Egyptians..

Two Ladies - Joel Grey (Cabaret, 1972)..

The priestesses of Nekhbet were called muu (mothers) and wore robes of Egyptian vulture feathers..One of the titles of each ruler was the Nebty name, which began with the hieroglyphs for [s/he] of the Two Ladies..In art, Nekhbet was depicted as a vulture..In New Kingdom times, the vulture appeared alongside the uraeus on the headdresses with which kings were buried..In Croatia, a colony of griffon vultures can be found near the town of Beli on the island of Cres - In Cyprus, there is a colony at Episkopi , in the south of the island - In Greece, there are nearly 1000 birds - Griffon vultures are regularly spotted over the Millau bridge - In Austria, there is a remnant population around Salzburg Zoo, and vagrants from the Balkans are often seen - A shen ring is a circle with a line at a tangent to it, which was represented in hieroglyphs as a stylised loop of a rope..In some late texts of the Book of the Dead, Nekhbet is referred to as Father of Fathers, Mother of Mothers, who hath existed from the Beginning, and is Creatrix of this World..

The Going Forth of Wadjet was celebrated on December 25 with chants and songs.. An annual festival held in the city celebrated Wadjet on April 21.. Other important dates for special worship of her were June 21, the Summer Solstice, and March 14.. She also was assigned the 5th hour of the 5th day of the moon..Wadjet was closely associated in the Egyptian pantheon with the Eye of Ra, a powerful protective deity..Much later, Wadjet became associated with Isis as well as with many other deities..Her name means "papyrus-colored one", as wadj is the Ancient Egyptian word for the color green..An interpretation of the Milky Way was that it was the primal snake, Wadjet, the protector of Egypt.. In this role she was called the Lady of Flame... am a Kodak with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking..I wonder what the Bride is doing today ?.Some day, all this will have to be developed, carefully printed, fixed..I wonder what the Groom is doing today ?.Probably trying to find a way out of it..He didn't have to chase very hard after her..She stood still and waited...
