The thrill of her chase used to be about impossible dreams in the future
And wrestling them into submission

Now that nothing’s impossible anymore,
She finds herself thinking often of the past
Conjuring visions of how life would’ve been, if it hadn’t gone the other way

Nothing spells unachievable
Like what may have been…and wasn’t.

    🙂 [That’s the comment on the post. I am sure, you’ll understand]

    By way of Free Association –

    (Scene in a car)
    SK- Do we have to go straight on this road?
    Me- Keep driving; I’ll let you know.
    (After 2 mins)
    Me- Take a left, right now.
    SK- Left?
    Me- Yeah, right!
    SK- (in the process of turning right)
    Me- Noooooooo. I meant, the ‘other’ left!

    If you are thinkin’ what got this into my head. T’was the phrase – ‘the other way’

    May I have permission to use the image of Athena being pursued in a PowerPoint for a Greek Literature final presentation?

    This painting shows a great myth that has to do with the origin of man. It shows Athena refusing the advances of Hephaestus. Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war, had no interest in men and preferred to remain a virgin. During the time of the Trojan War, the goddess paid a visit to the workshop of Hephaestus to see if the fire god would fashion her a new set of arms. Unbeknownst to Athena, Poseidon had told a malicious lie to the blacksmith, telling him the goddess was on her way to visit with the flames of love burning in her heart. Hephaestus, who was elated by Poseidon’s news, forged the weapons but refused payment.
    Instead, he told the goddess, he would rather accept her love as a token of gratitude. Perplexed by the situation, Athena stood still at the forge until Hephaestus grabbed her and tried to ravish her on the spot. She pulled herself away from his grasp but not before his seed spilled accidently on her leg. Athena wiped her thigh clean with a piece of wool and threw it to the ground with disgust. The discarded fragment landed near Athens and accidently impregnated Gaia the Earth Mother (giving rise to man!).

    Why does the painter show Athena on clouds and the man on ground? What does this mean?
