Paparazzi or Chicken Soup for ya no wha

She remembers the moment. The photographer took her picture. She remembers her anger. The man was a stranger. She had never been photographed before. Until they met again 17 years later, she had not been photographed since.

There are religions that believe a photograph taken without permission can steal your soul, or part of it anyway. I experienced
it on my Caribbean trip on the island of St. John. I was taking a photo of chickens running in the street (because I had never seen that before;) and some of the native islanders disapprovingly looked at me. My Bro told me about the superstition, cuz sometimes he smarter than me!

Did you know there are 13 parts to the soul? And I recently broke
a mirror. I’m so screwed.

Maybe “One Day” my luck will turn around. [The other song
by Fabulous ain’t so bad either. Love the Rottie!]

Novena to the Thirteen Blessed Souls
(Jesus and the Twelve Apostles)
(Please Note - The repeat of the first line is not a mistake it is supposed to be read twice.)

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for the Love of God that my request be answered.

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for the Love of God that my request be answered. Of you I ask for the sake of the blood that Jesus shed that my request be answered.

My Lord Jesus Christ that your protection wrap me with your arms. Guard me with your eyes.

O God of kindness you have been my defender in life and death. I ask that you free me from the difficulties that torment me. My thirteen blessed souls so wise and understanding having received the grace I seek from you (state request) I will be devoted to you.

[Say Thirteen Our Father's and Thirteen Hail Mary's for Thirteen
consecutive days. Publish this prayer (share it with a friend) and
give a Mass of Thanksgiving.]

I hope the Novena worked. I didn't know chickens had souls. Muslim is the only religion I know that believes a photograph taken without permission can steal your soul. I'm always careful not to photograph Muslim looking people when I'm taking street photos downtown or on campus.
