Graduation Day

I am graduating today. It feels a little bizarre and disconnected from my life as a university student, given that I finished law school back in November. The University clearly can’t get it’s shit together, and this is why my graduation is so far from the actual date that I finished my studies. Better late then never.

I have nothing else to report on really. I apologise dear reader. The weeks and days have been long at work this past week, which has left me depleted of any creative spark. However, I include this beautiful hymn to Isis, from Zabkar’s book Hymns to Isis from the Philae Temple.

Praise to you Isis-Hathor, God’s mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton Queen of the Gods.

You are the divine mother of Horus, the Mighty Bull,

protector of his father, who causes the rebels to fall.

Praise to you Isis-Hather, God’s mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton Queen of the Gods.

You are the divine mother of Horus, Min-Horus,

the hero who smites his enemy, and makes a massacre thereby.

Praise to you Isis-Hathor, God’s Mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton Queen of the Gods.

You are the divine mother of Horus, Khonsu-the-powerful,

Royal child of the Lord of Eternity, Lord of Nubia,

Ruler of the foreign Lands.

Praise to you Isis-Hathor, God’s Mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton, Queen of the Gods.

You are the divine mother of Horus, the Mighty Bull,

who establishes the temples of the Ennead,

and fashions every divine image.

Praise to you Isis-Hathor, God’s Mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton, Queen of the Gods.

You are the divine mother of Horus, the Mighty Bull who protects Egypt, Lord of the Nome, forever.

Praise to you Isis-Hathor, God’s Mother,

Lady of Heaven, Mistress of Abaton, Queen of the Gods.
