More Boots ATOP Posts
Left above: Back from a two week holiday in Dick Cheney's State of Wyoming with two more cowboy boots atop gateposts (double entendre!) found south of the town of Douglas, the "Jackalope" (antlered bunnys) Capital of the World. The "jackalope" is the American cousin of the "raurackl", the German stag-hare. Certainly, we could begin to add to this blog other "coital oxymorons" - already "gatepost", "cowboy"; consider "belltower", "penrose" or the ancient intended boy/girl word construct - "rosicrucian".
Then right above: photos of two boots on a fence outside of Kerrville, Texas received from Ted Parker of Mason, Texas. If you too have driven by these extemporaneous coital sculptures, please submit any of your photos of "boots atop posts" or related subjects to my email address email@example.com and they will be "posted" here.

Now, to review -as blogging is "newest first, oldest last" format - a reminder to take a look first of the older entries - the present thread (perhaps, thin) of this blog is "coital motifs" woven in and out of the sacred and the mundane. To wit - from June 13th's post:
a] "trophy cup" - more or less equal parts male and female "attributes", ie "shoe-atop-post"; "the Holy Grail"; "bell/ghanta";
b] "holly wreath" - the vulvic circle made up of phallic parts, ie "crown of thorns"; "ring of keys", "stone circles";
c] "flowered rod" - the phallic wrapped with various female "attributes", probably our anathemic "asher'ah" object.
d] "axis mundi" - more a virtual male "pole" around which dynamically turns the "feminine" aspect, ie a female earth turning on a male axis as - the ziggurat or "Tower of Babel" winding up vertically to the heavens.
The next three entries will conclude the "trophy" motif and we must let our "boots atop posts" ride off into the sunset.
