72 Demons:  DANTALION  He is a powerful Great Duke of Hell, with thirty-six legions of demons under his command; a Jinn, he is the 71st of 72 spirits of Solomon. He teaches all arts and sciences, and also declares the secret counsel of anyone, given that he knows the thoughts of all people and can change them at his will. He can also cause love and show the similitude of any person, show the same by means of a vision, and let them be in any part of the world they will.

The inspiration for this post came from my trip the grocery store this past weekend. At the entrance to the store sat a WWII veteran and his wife, both dressed completely in red, white & blue. They were selling crepe-paper poppies for donations on behalf of the local American Legion. After donating and receiving a poppy, we chatted with them for a moment and I  wondered what the meaning was behind the poppy. After a little research, here is the poppy story.

"Je Ne Regrette Rien" -- cameo pin/pendant by Miss Atomic Jewelry -- a woman's outstretched, tattooed arms with a banner that tells the world "I REGRET NOTHING" (Edith Piaf's signature song, adopted by the French Foreign Legion, which has elements of defiance and irony if you read the story.)  I love the gesture of the open hands!
