I can’t really give you any advise about God. We never had any sort of serious relationship,
All I can say is that if you want to go back to the Hellenic pantheon then you shouldn’t have a problem. I can’t speak for the gods but respect goes a long way.
Wow, the Persians were twisted.
Don’t look up Scaphism if you’re faint of heart.
mythology series → the minotaur’s sister ariadne [Ἀριάδνη]
out of the maze
revealing secrets we kept on the way
who knows who’s right
breaking the chains i’m gonna give up my future to fate
now i’m alright
eventually i saw what was not clear to my eyes
for all my life
thought i had friends i could confess
my fears and my hopes
no more tears, no more fights
each one is free to take his own way out
you take yours, i’ll take mine
out of the maze
Daniel del Cavallo “Sacred Iron Posies”
Graceful spirits of the landscape,
dwellers among verdant trees whose footsteps
raise flowers of every color, attendants
of Demeter and Dionysos,
you light the world with your passing.
Spirits of sprawling oaks
and ebullient crape myrtle, of cypress
dripping with Spanish moss;
spirits of the placid canals
and bayous smeared with green algae fingerprints;
spirits of the merry laughing fountains,
of strawberries swollen red as a lover’s lips,
of sunrise clementines and juicy satsumas;
light-footed nymphs with eyes the color of the sky,
you wander the parks and streets and waterways
of this city and bring life
wherever you go.
White-robed and frolicsome,
generous in the water and on land,
bring abundance in your train –
share with us the fruitful seasons, the health
and prosperity we all desire.
Rosy and fair, o nymphs, rejoice with us.
