I Love Mimi

I awoke from my Old Man Nap, and searched for those I loved, who are now gone. I looked for a way to save Bill, and found it. I should have asked him to come live with me in New York.

Then I saw Mimi on the dance floor. I don’t remember if I danced with her. My fiend Keith did. I wanted to slow dance with her. I wanted to feel her response as I gently brushed the nape of her neck. This is what she wanted. Someone to replace Richard. The touch of Richard, the smell of Richard, the pressing of Richard back into her soul, her heart, her being that begs for the resonance of bonding – a complete bonding that hurtles you into the cosmic molecular state of our being – in complete trust.

I am going to paint Mimi. I found a painting her sister did of her. Mary Ann did a full size painting of her. I will love Mimi until my dying day. We deserve to be in love – forever! With our passionate stranger that the earth gave us, for our stay, for a little while, for so many lifetimes.

Mimi the Muse

Posted on November 23, 2014 by Royal Rosamond Press


Mimi Farina-Baez walked the earth as the embodiment of the Pre-Raphaelite Muse. She was a modern day Troubadour. I met her at the last Monterey Pop Festival, and fell in love. She owned the look I loved, that I found in other women, and loved these women. My ex-wife was Mimi’s friend, and did a life-size portrait or her. My late sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, has the same Madonna look.  Arwen has this look. The Ring movies borrow from the world the Pre-Raphaelites rendered.  Tolkien was obsessed with Queen Rosamond and might have modeled Arwin after this Queen. I am going have Mimi be my model for my images of several historic Rosamonds. With the snipping tool I can capture certain angles.  The living muses I tried to get to be my model, could not grasp my ambition to make ROSAMOND a brand name. Here is a woman totally groking on the name Cordelia and Rosamond for the name of her baby when she is born.

Cunimund had a daughter named Rosamund (or Rosemund). She was forced into marrying Alboin after the Gepids‘ defeat, but she arranged his assassination in 572 or 573.

In literature[edit]

Cunimund’s grim end and Rosamund are mentioned in J. R. R. Tolkien‘s story “The Lost Road”, when the character Alboin asks his father, Oswin Errol, about the origin of his name:

…and Oswin told his son the tale of Alboin son of Audoin, the Lombard king; and of the great battle of the Lombards and the Gepids, remembered as terrible even in the grim sixth century; and of the kings Thurisind and Cunimund, and of Rosamunda. ‘Not a good story for near bed-time,’ he said, ending suddenly with Alboin’s drinking from the jewelled skull of Cunimund…

—J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lost Road

In an early version of J. R. R. Tolkien‘s fantasy time-travel story The Lost Road, Tolkien considered placing one of his main characters in the person of Alboin.

In Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries, the country of Genovia’s first ruler was a princess named Rosamund, based on the princess Alboin raped. In the book, Mia writes that Rosamund’s father was killed by a warlord, who made his skull into a cup and forced her to drink from it. She strangled him in his sleep with her braids and was given the principality of Genovia in honor of her brave deed.

Reply to:Cordelia talk + suggestions? by Kitty

I love Cordelia, but I think it is a little too long for a kid on it’s own. I like the nickname Cora, but if you prefer Coco or Delia or Lia or Cordie or something they could work too.
I like Cordelia Beatrice Rosamund.
