Elamite Dog Amulet of the goddess Gula, Circa 3rd Millennium BC
In ancient Elam, the significance of the dog was related to the goddess Gula, since they were her sacred animals. As the goddess of healing and patroness of doctors, these gold amuletic dogs may have been thought to have healing powers. Gula’s principle shrine was at the é-u-gi7-ra (“Dog Temple”) at Isin, but she also had temples at Nippur, Borsippa, and Assur. Particularly notable in Isin are more than 30 dog burials discovered below the ramp leading to the temple. 
Elam was an ancient civilization centered in the far west and southwest of modern-day Iran, stretching from the lowlands of what is now Khuzestan and Ilam Province, as well as a small part of southern Iraq. In classical literature, Elam was more often referred to as Susiana, a name derived from its capital, Susa.

清晨,發現在夢裡哭(四點十分小記)

有些東西只能活在回憶裡,想起時就偷哭或一個人時忽然放聲大哭: 1.比如曾經呵護倍置的心愛的兩盆玫瑰 或(祢們,與祢們喝過的肥料,殺菌劑與泥土還在那,消毒的剪錠夾,照片和夾日記的葉子可以讓我想起祢們,很難過時發現好像該畫下祢們曾經最漂亮的樣子,時間走的好緩慢); 2.比如想起曾經可以用電話或msn聊很久但斷音訊已久的朋友們 ; (找不回來了,人家可能早不記得妳是誰,而妳又不太social也不愛social也沒有交集,日記裡的文字是僅有的一些片段了不是遺憾是會難過)3.比如妳不切實際早該放棄的春秋大夢 (夢做的太久,妳以為妳是小朋友喔!其實眼高手低累了自己,閉著眼睛會希望許多選擇抉擇能重來一次); 4.比如選擇很多事很多物都早是該自己負責的年齡(越接近生日越是憂愁襲來,雖然看似要快年底的生日,卻是以倍光速般流逝,該是訂定每年目標的時刻?!)5.比如矛盾,同時存在的兩種不同的心情,正向面對學生和飄浮無法陽光的灰色影,並置腦間,可能需要搞笑機器或逗趣寵物陪伴妳的左右,偶爾很敏感連學生都覺得妳有太富同情心沒脾氣沒原則沒法管秩序本人也沒秩序6.未完待續7.自言自語不好意思rose當寵物看,台北不是溫帶,花布是回憶的紀念物8.請愛妳所選擇的,愛妳做的決定,不要後悔,包括職業,感謝妳會的,音樂水彩旅遊流浪都不錯,請忘了煩惱吧,
