Imagine Lucio asking Efi to be the flower girl for his and Hana's wedding, she then proceeds to faint from excitement.
I LOVE THIS?? (It kind of turned into a wedding heacannon for bunnyribbit, but oh well. Also, I headcannon Lucio as Catholic)
The wedding is already arrange, but they are missing the most important piece. Lucio approaches Efi with his offer, and she nearly hyperventilates from thinking about being the flower girl for his and D.va’s wedding.
It’s set in Brazil, with lots of their culture mixed together. Before the wedding even starts, Lucio gives D.va’s mother a wooden goose. A Korean tradition, wild geese mate for life, so his gift is a promise that he will care for her daughter for life.
D.va wears a diamond lace halter strap princess style wedding gown. Her high heels are colored gold, a wedding tradition in Brazil.
The church is grand and beautiful. D.va is excited, only ready to see her future husband’s face. Lucio is a bundle of emotions, but more then ready to become one with the love of his life.
Efi is dressed in a beautiful green gown, tossing bright flower petals on the path to the alter. Her excitement is contagious, and Lucio smiles at her job well done.
Walking down the aisle, D.va’s father is proud as he hands her to Lucio. The groom is crying, but D.va is smiling through her tears as well.
The priest speaks the vows, Lucio and D.va accepting in the other’s native tongue. Once they are pronounced man and wife, they throw their arms around each other. Kissing as husband and wife as their family and friends burst out in joy.
After the celebration has ended, they take off to Korea. Their honey moon giving them time together and the chance to enjoy their first days as husband and wife alone.
Metatron’s cube depicts the five platonic solids which may be derived form the flower of life. The five platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs, according to spiritual belief. The Platonic solids are five structures that are crucial because they are the building blocks of organic life. These five structures are found in minerals, animated and organic life forms, sound, music, language, etc. Metatron’s cube is also considered a holy glyph, used to ward off evil spirits. The Kabbalah’s Tree of life is also thought to be derived from the flower of life.
The photo is an installation called ‘Intersections’ by Anila Quayyum Agha, who laser-cut black lacquer wood cube suspended from the ceiling and lit with a single light bulb that casts breathtaking 32-ft-by-34-ft shadows to create instant architecture in an otherwise empty room.
Written and collected by Rev. Harvey B. Greene, Wild Flowers from Palestine is a
beautiful cloth bound collection of seventeen dried flowers from the Holy
Land. The book begins with a brief
introduction to the flora of Palestine and a bit about how the flowers were
gathered. On all subsequent pages, you
will find a dried flower hand gathered by the reverend himself and accompanied
by the plant’s link to scripture and literature. In 1897, Good
Housekeeping called the book “one of the most attractive novelties in book
making which has lately made its appearance.”
Rev. Harvey B. Greene
graduated from the Yale Divinity School in 1891, and was ordained in Fairhaven,
Massachusetts the same year. He remained there until March, 1893, being next
settled in Hartford, Vermont, where he remained about a year and a half. On
account of poor health he was forced to give up ministerial work and took up a
career as a florist. In a sort of culmination of passions, he made three visits
to the Holy Land for the purpose of collecting flowers native to the country. These were used in his Wild Flowers from Palestine and in another book of his entitled Pressed Flowers from the Holy Land.
