Working title is "Your Guardian Orisha". And I have been slaving away on it as hard as you. Did not go out on friday or saturday nights. Though I did spend the day today with Nouar, fun! We went to the Pasadena City College swap meet. I found an old Doc Watson (bluegrass/oldtime music) double LP in perfect condition for $3.50.
Trying to discover the real meaning of the name of the Old Warrior path of Obatala. I found two versions of the name: Eyenike and Ekanike. Eye is bird. Eka is the act of counting. Ni is the definite article. 'Ke is oke = hill. so... "bird the hill" (hill bird)? Or "count the hill"? Bah nothing makes sense... sheesh!
Keep plugging away and I will too!

Thanks, Skookum. :)
My curiosity is unbound...
What is a skookum? Is that an invented name, or does it mean something? It sounds like a british celtic fairy name, like a bwgan (hobgoblin), or a ku-sidhe, or maybe one of Lewis Carroll's "boojum"???
But what the hell do I know, my mother's maiden name was seeley! (sheelie?)
Hee hee! ;-)

My search results this morning are showing that Ekanike is the Cuban Lukumi version of the name, and that Eyenike is used in Nigeria.
Eye is a bird, but it is also a metaphor for a spirit.
Ni is the definite article
Oke is a hill
Eye ni'ke translates literally as "bird (spirit) the hill", and more sensibly in English perhaps as the spirit of the hill.
I know little about ancient Yoruba fortification of towns. Did they make hill fort the way celts did?

Hard work is when somebody try to make pure ideas to be dense ideas.
