Tea and Conversation 17: Nephilim


Today I’m sharing a picture of a black flora tea cup from my own collection I posted on my tea pin board.

Today in my meditation I’m thinking about Eternal Curse and I’m writing about: Why Nephilim?

This is not a new idea and with the success of such series as the Mortal Instruments, I feel a little overwhelmed to live up to the hype. Tales of angels, demons, and the humans who love them have become a little cliché as of late, but I can honestly say that my story is a little different from the popular norm, at the moment.

In my ECS, I refer to the Nephilim as half-breeds for two basic reasons. 1. I have actually come up with a back story that clearly separates the Nephilim from the ones I call half-breeds while still connecting them. 2. My story isn’t really about angels and demons with human lovers; it starts out with the offspring of these groups, the half-breeds, and builds from there. This story is about beings who existence, uncertainly, somewhere in between the worlds of angels and humans.

As with all things mythological, theological, and mystical, there is so much possibility and creativity to explore when dealing with the idea of “Nephilim”. If people can write stories about Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Dragons, Demigods, Mermaids, and more, then why not half human-half angels.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
