Shaman


The Rogue Speaks:

Hungrily, he bit into the warm slice, and immediately his taste buds began to dance with delight. The crust was perfect, and the aroma of fresh herbs filled his nostrils. He had been looking forward to this meal !

Her garden had been bountiful this year, and the tomatoes, peppers, and onions were bursting with the old-fashioned flavor of years gone by. There was another flavor, however, that he couldn’t readily identify.

“What kind of pizza is this?” he asked, as the room began to shimmer and sway, and sparkle with strange lights.

“Oh, you’re tasting the mushrooms I bought from the old Indian man,” she replied.



What a great prompt Jenny has given us for Saturday Centus! Be sure to read the other offerings. I'm off to a Guild meeting, and of course, I'm late!!

p.s. The picture you see is labeled as Tony Grey Owl Native American Cherokee Shaman, from Facebook!

No credit was given to the artist, but I believe the painting is the work of Susan Seddon Boulet, who was a very gifted and spiritual artist.

Oops! Beware of Indians bearing mushrooms! I sympathise over the crown... even normal looking dentists scare me!

This was really clever.

I know you would twist us, but I didn't see that coming...hope it didn't throw my back out!

askcherlock said...

What a great photo you found, Judie, to go with this post. "Shrooms," eh? Well, that's one pizza that would be a trip!

Ravenmyth said...

Judie love your spin on the Native Culture...total genius...you are right...love the music. Ok...so where do we get the Pizza...those must be some very special mushrooms...keep us smiling my friend...

Dazee Dreamer said...

Oh dear, not THOSE mushrooms. hahaha. I actually was tasting that pizza while reading about it. good job.

JP Brandano Photography said...

When I was younger my father and friends would go out this time of year to secret places lol to find mushrooms. You have to be careful or you could poison your family. Now I see mushroom all around where I live but would not take the chance. The picture is wonderful, I love how the artist had created a feeling of depth to it. I started following you!! Just let me know what image you want and I'll email it to you! I appreciate your asking me!

Judie-you are the master of surprise endings. But what does an innocent like you know about magic mushrooms?

Judie said...

Hahahaha! Marty, you got me! Rod and I led such sheltered lives when we were younger! I was once offered marijuana when I was in my 20s by a neighbor who worked at the IRS. She had gotten it from a co-worker! I was too afraid to try it! Having said that, I have seen documentaries on those "magic mushrooms." That is the sole extent of my knowledge on the subject!

askcherlock said...

I never tried magic mushrooms either, Judie. My own life is trip enough!

Jo said...

Brilliant my dear friend!

Tammy said...

LOL...you had me so hungry for pizza at the beginning, but I loved the magic shroom ending. And that picture is beautiful. Oh, and on that topic--your "Toe Collection" photo is absolutely awesome. I find myself staring at it because of the many lovely emotions it evokes. It should be a poster or greeting card or something.

BECKY said...

Judie, I stopped by and read this the other day and could've sworn I left a comment...but alas, I didn't...so here I am tonight! Great story! Beware of the pizza man AND the mushroom man!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

We never get those good mushrooms on our pizza! LOL Great job. laurie

Gay McKinnon said...

Wow, your blog really stands out! Popped by and felt like I'd had some of those mushrooms. Is that a mescaline cactus?? Thanks for the psychedelic experience!

Tina said...

Sarah said...

Hahaha! I want some of that!!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh wow, now I love pizza! LOL Your story reminds me of the Carlos Castaneda books I read so long ago...awesome post, my friend!!!

JJ said...

Judie: I had a portabello mushroom burger for dinner tonight. Do I qualify as a Shaman?

Judie said...

JJ, I am sure that you have already cast a spell on your students this semester, even before the mushroom!!

Tgoette said...

Shrooms! What a wonderful story, Judie! One that brings back many wonderful memories (I think they were memories...not quite sure.) Super job!
