Our planet, our society, our children require us to become heroes.
Humanity is facing a plethora of challenges.
We are all part of the solution, for us and for future generations .
Our planets future depends on us .
The human spirit soars.
Ah Love! If only I could write an Ode to your depth and beauty.
Ah love, an emotion that is ever expansive, ever encompassing and so multifaceted.
Ah love, from the sweet kiss of blossoming love to the passion of belonging, to a couple holding hands in their mature years, indescribable and yet so easily identifiable.
Ah love, even when lost it leaves footprints on our souls.
Ode to Love.
A seed takes root and grows - this
is a woman.
The musings and thoughts on any topic that excites one or allows one to grow as a human being through both love and loss.
This is a personal journey expressed in lyrics, it is my journey in finding meaning, in finding truth and wisdom, and a better understanding of the human experience.
You are welcome to find your own sense of emotions that words may evoke in you.
I hope they do.
This section is dedicated to anyone who has lost a loved one.
May they be beloved in memory and may we find a sense of peace and tranquility in our memories.
Songs of war and destruction, of adventure, romance, love, lust, human glory, and human failing.
Odysseus's journey to Troy and back to Ithaca has tremendous highs and lows.
Seen metaphorically - the monsters and the perils he encounters and how he chooses to triumph despite adversity is the ultimate test that the human spirit encounters throughout life’s journey.
It’s the journey every man must undertake to find salvation and peace – the eternal struggle to find meaning.
The journey of life, the lessons of life the perils one encounters the highs and lows are one’s own, one has to stand alone and accept responsibility for all actions and endeavours ……that is every man’s Odyssey.
The Odyssey is equally an expression of the role women play in guiding men.
In a woman's embrace a man finds love, wisdom, kindness and courage, sometimes he finds terror and fear.
Odysseus is taken on a journey of discovery often through the eyes of women.
Most of the challenges he encounters are
from women wronged by either life or the Gods and are out there spewing revenge and havoc.
Throughout the Odyssey though one still feels the kindness, the loving and the beauty - that is woman.
The Odyssey is one man’s journey of tenacity and love where all that life offers is experienced and in the end the spirit triumphs, he finds peace in the arms of his beloved wife and his home.
There is no escape from the inspiration that is Hellenic history and mythology.
There is no escape from Hellenism.
Hellenism lives in our soul, stories and myths so enchanting they resonate within us through all the ages of time.
Hellenism is the gift that keeps on giving mankind's need for expression and understanding.
Hellenism inspires PHILOSOPHY ( the love of wisdom, the love of thought)
Hellenism inspires FILOTIMO. (seeing the humanity in everyone and doing right by your fellow human being).
Mythology with its hidden messages allows one to go down paths unknown.
From The Choices of Hercules, Jason and his intrepid Argonauts, AESOPS fables, we are taken on a mythical journey of wonder.
Let's not forget the beautiful Pandora, whose curiosity gets the better of her and she opens the box releasing all the evils and monster into the world, only to close it in time leaving HOPE inside.
MAY WE ALL LIVE WITH HOPE.
