I wonder how that came about to signify honey?
You know, that's a great question. Off I go the researchmobile, Batman!
Yay for research. You're the best!
:DI found this great article at Endicott Studios (of course): http://www.endicott-studio.com/rdrm/rrMilkHoney3.htmlLove this quote: "The common bee understands the secret of the great alchemical metaphor misunderstood by the alchemists of a hundred ages: the bee collects the nectar of the land unto itself and then produces gold to feed the world."You know, I think, if you squint, the ideogram for honey looks a bit like a bee. Hmmm...
Julie - I love Endicott Studios. Did you see the Grandmother Death story on the blog yesterday? I loved it.
