The Lowly Fly's Request

Yesterday, while I was sitting a little fly landed on my leg and started a telepathic conversation with me.  I don't recall the details, but after the exchange his little tongue came out, as if to give me a kiss.  While falling asleep, he appeared to me in phosphenic imagery. " Amy", he said, "I want you to create a drama in which flies take the role of Mary, Joseph and Jesus."  I then recalled that I indeed, do have fly poppets, of myself and my friend, which could be used for such a photo essay.  We flies will play the role of Mary and Joseph.

Most people believe flies to be a terrible disease ridden pest.  I perceive them as vital helpers, transforming dead matter and cleaning up unwanted waste.  Flies are a vital part of the ecosystem, providing food for birds and other creatures, with their soft fleshy bodies.

I know that the request of the fly spirit seems sacrilegious.  St. Francis was a lover of all creatures and so am I.  It is still the month of October, October 4th is his feast day.  St. Francis also invented the Nativity scene.

I apologized to the fly for killing maggots in my trash can this summer with hot water.  He said, "Don't worry, it is part of the human psyche to be revolted by us, so I don't hold it against you."

While traveling in Assisi in 2004, I learned that the Franciscans liked to equate themselves with a worm, like St. Francis did.  A worm is lowly and humble, so is the fly.

Please don't be offended.  I know that there are many who  think in a less complex manner than myself and will try to tag me as Evil.  I look to all of creation for inspiration and assistance in my life's work, and if you cannot wrap your mind around my expressions, it is not me, it is you with the problem.
