Lady #128

I told you how Inanna came to life in the previous post; a couple of weeks ago I went with her to the beach, to Getaria to be exact, and she came to life again. Here is Inanna and her tale.

. . .

«Descend to take breath»

It`s not true that we choose our battles -at least not always- what we choose is the path, and they come by themselves.

Inanna chose her path; she needed to go deep, up to the underworld to visit shadow. She knew that she wont be able to fight any more battles succesfully if she didn`t take that trip.

As the laws of the underworld demand, she got rid of everything she was wearing, one piece at the time.
Finally, naked, she met Her, the shadow was just the way she was the last time they saw each other.

She was still intense and powerful, but during this time in exile She learnt to shout even louder.
Inanna, vulnerable but pride, approached Her and asked, «How can you still be alive? What sense does it make, complaining all the time? Don`t you see how ridicule you are?».
The answer din`t wait too long, She drop all her anger on to Inanna and opening each and every bound of her She killed her.

. . .

No one knows what happened next, neither how seven days and ten nights after, Inanna appeared in the same place that saw her disappear.

She was the same, but different.

. . .

*Inanna`s tale is inspired by the Sumerian myth «Inanna`s descent into the underworld».

La leyenda de Inanna, e Inanna misma, ha sido la protagonista del último boletín. Ahí está la historia en castellano -incluida alguna errata que no puedo corregir, maldita sea- así que he decidirlo dejarla en el blog en inglés, así aunque dando vueltas nos podemos enterar todos y todas. Cuando la ponga a la web también estará en euskera, pero las batallas una a una mejor!
