So deep was my love for the gods that I willed my high school-shy self to volunteer to play the part of Persephone for my class' video re-enactment of her myth (it had nothing to do with my then-crush already being signed up to play Hades).
My favorite god has always been Apollo - I mean, what's not to
One of the things that I thought was really cool about Greek mythology was that it was all very sordid. Going through the stories of the gods and demi-gods is like flipping channels at two in the afternoon on a weekday - nothing but outlandish drama, scorned lovers, double-crossing siblings, plotting fathers, cougar mothers. Apollo seduced Cassandra - who happened to be the daughter of Hecuba, an ex - with the promise that he would teach her the art of the prophecy, but she dumped him after she learned his secrets, so Apollo punished Cassandra by telling her that she would only be able to foresee tragedies and no one would believe her. Ooh, burn! Come on, One Live to Live, can you top that?
Are you into ancient legends at all? Do you have a favorite Greek god, and why?
I was dressing for my fave Greek god today - bright sunny colors in a pattern that faintly reminds me of ancient Greece (not, but I'm trying here), animals on my belt, short skirt, shoes I could go chasing the rays in ...
