Euskara maite dut!
Basque egotea maite dut!
Nire Euskal ondarea
I am a Boise, Idaho native who has always been
thrilled about my BASQUE Heritage.
Basque imagination is robust.
Mythology and legends were generated in the Old Country to help explain
environmental phenomena and life experienced. As we know, Laminak,
Basque Faeries, are a rich part of Basque Mythological history, and have
been present for at least thousands of years. In The Basque Country,
Laminak were purported to live in cavernous underground areas in Castles
near streams and had webbed feet or fish-like (mermaid) tales.
aided others, e.g., farmers-with work, such as plowing unfinished
fields-for gifts in return.
My typical vibrant Basque imagination
sees contemporary Laminak morphing to have humanoid feet and wings in
place of bird-like feet or mermaid-like fish tails of earlier Laminak. I
see Laminak continuing to make sense of the increasingly complex world
we live in by not only helping with physical tasks but also by shoring
up internal gifts of compassion, sensitivity, savvy and other supports
I have, for many years, fantacized about
Laminak, Basque Faeries, coming to America. While in Boise, Idaho,
next living in California (another Basque dense area), and now The Pink
Palace our home in Kentucky-which is near caves and caverns with
streams...terrain congruent to Laminak habitats in the Old Country-I may
have glimpsed Laminak working then frolicking!
The magic is here!
Let's explore Laminak errespetua, bakea and zorion!
