Transcript of Eve

Eve What do you think of when you hear the name Eve? Beyond,beyond
It sounds full of wind and mist, doesn't it
It means other things exist, doesn't it
Beyond, beyond
It says Adam leave your list, doesn't it
Father why does my head feel this joy and this dread since the moment I said

I've got an itching on the tips of my fingers
I've got a boiling in the back of my brain
I've got a hunger burning inside me, can not be denied
I've got feeling that the Father who made us
When he was kindling a pulse in my veins
He left a tiny spark of that fire, smoldering inside

The spark of creation, is flickering within me
The spark of creation,is blazing in my blood
A bit of the fire that lit up the stars
And breathed life into the mud, the first inspiration
The spark of creation
Why did I choose to explore Eve's Character for my CP?
What is her significance?
the first woman
the reason we no longer live in paradise
the reason sin exists
the reason knowledge exists
she has been used to legitimize patriarchy
she has been redefined through the centuries as sexual temptress, the "mother of all living" as her name literally translates to from Hebrew, and as a sinner
she is treated as the index for female behaviour

the culminating events of the following led me to this topic:
my Bat Mitzvah portion being about the snake and temptation and therefore going through the process of writing a d'var torah on the topic giving me the chance to explore it
studying the "Creation of Adam" in grade 10 as well as the Tanach
travelling to Italy and seeing the Sistine Chapel
participating in the upper school musical "Children of Eden"
Desperate Housewives opening credits
I see a mountain and I want to climb it
I see a river and I want to leave shore
Where there was nothing let there be something, something made by me
There's things waiting for me to invent them
There's worlds waiting for me to explore
I am an echo of the eternal cry of
Let there be!

The spark of creation, is burning bright within me
The spark of creation, won't let me rest at all
Until I discover or build or uncover
A thing that I can call, my celebration
Of the spark of creation

The spark of creation, may it burn forever
The spark creation, I am a keeper of the flame
We think all we want is a lifetime of leisure
Each perfect day the same
Endless vacation
Well that's alright if you're a kind crustacean
But when you're born with an imagination
Sooner or later you're feeling the fire get higher and higher
The spark of creation!!!
