But since the tomb guardian weirdly recognized who I am he insisted that we take a photo cause maybe I'll be on mars one day and then he was like "take all the photos you want ya kabeer" 😁
Btw the colors on the wall looks like it was painted last Wednesday 😱
Very interesting client session. I love that energy can present itself in such diverse ways so as to create the perfect experience for the individual at just the right time. The reasons it appeared in this way were abundantly clear. We had lots to talk about with this one...didn't want the session to end! We covered everything : from the obvious to the more subtle nuances of how we can perceive energy outside of the physical body to the ancient wisdom to be found within ourselves. I've found these energy portraits done in the client session setting are always equally reflective AND transparent. The reflection shows us the ways in which we're intentionally creating the reality around us. And the transparency shows us that nothing is really a secret. There are no elusive mysteries within us that cannot be discovered as long as we're willing to look, and then see it. Just some light thoughts for a Monday morning. Lol! Have a great week everyone!
#MemoryMonday One of the best things about traveling for me is the memories it leaves lodged in a your head. These memories make a 5am work shift a little easier. 🤣 Such a great satisfaction #TheWorldIsYours

In the southern arcade of Somers Clarke House, wearing an Edwardian blouse and neo-Edwardian skirt, I present here the first of a planned series of videos on ancient Egyptian pottery. In this installment—the two basic categories of Egyptian ceramic fabrics, Nile silts and marls. The large silt vessel dates to about 3200 BCE, and comes from a newly surveyed area at the beginning of the current season. The Roman Period cups are from an area far in the Eastern Desert, about which more later. .
Although very fine silt fabrics are a hallmark of early Egyptian and Nubian Nilotic fabrics, just after 3500 BCE the Upper Egyptians develop two influential recipes for clay: 1) Nile silt with added straw as a temper, enabling the thorough firing of thick-walled, strong storage vessels (known from Petrie's old designation as R-Ware, for Rough Ware); and 2) a desert clay, Marl A1, with added sand and limestone temper. The designation Marl A1 is from the so-called Vienna System, a codification of the characteristics and appropriate designations of the discrete Egyptian fabric recipes. These new fabrics are inventions of the Naqada II Period (ca. 3500-3250 BCE), the time of rapid consolidation of power centers in the region between Hierakonpolis in the south (just across the river from us) and Abydos in the north. During the early Naqada III Period a unified Upper Egypt, apparently governed out of Abydos, developed early Egyptian writing, of the sort we discovered in monumental form at el-Khawy in May 2017. .
On #ThisDayinHistory 1984, an international panel overseeing the restoration of the Great Pyramids in Egypt abandons modern construction techniques in favor of the method employed by the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Egyptians built nearly 100 pyramids over a millennium to serve as burial chambers for their royalty. They believed that the pyramids eased the monarchs’ passage into the afterlife, and the sites served as centers of religious activity. During the Old Kingdom, a period of Egyptian history that lasted from the late 26th century B.C. to the mid-22nd century B.C., the Egyptians built their largest and most ambitious pyramids. The three enormous pyramids situated at Giza outside of Cairo were built by King Khufu, his son, and his grandson in the Fourth Dynasty. The largest, known as the Great Pyramid, was built by Khufu and is the only one of the “Seven Wonders of the World” from antiquity that still survives. Recently the chamber in the great pyramid was discovered and today there’s speculation that a throne made of meteorites may be inside. We’re excited to find out. #Pyramids#Egypt#AncientEgypt#Giza
