I am toying with the idea of making something extra-colorful on every one of Her days; you can see a hint of Her here, on the far left, overlooking the colors I have poured for Her as an offering.
Alternate title: “Colorless,” My Ass
In the Kemetic calendar, today is a day for Tasenetnofret, The Good Sister, a Name Who is a form of Hethert (Hathor), but also an epithet of Nebt-het (Nephthys). This is the one place I have found where my Mothers, Nebt-het and Hethert-Nut, actually overlap.
While idly browsing the Wepwawet Wiki, looking at hieroglyphs, I stumbled across Tasenetnofret’s page. She was described as “a colorless manifestation of Hethert in the role of divine wife.”
I’m pretty sure my reaction was along the lines of “oh no you din’t!” My Mothers? Colorless?!
(Please note that I am not actually taking offense at the editors of Wepwawet Wiki. I realize there’s not a lot of sources out there detailing Tasenetnofret, which can give any Netjeru a lackluster image. I felt compelled to action, not outrage. ~_^)
So, in an immediate effort to rectify this monochromatic statement, I went about painting a very colorful gift for Tasenetnofret:
Dua Tasenetnofret! May Your eyes feast on the most vivid of beautiful colors, always.
